    Arrow RR 07-03-05 .. Fixes ...

    In this release:

    -Added "RUNQW" dynamic skin command
    -Added work-around for "white border" issue after VIS plugin goes full screen on some video cards
    -Added "ACTIVATE" skin command to directly activate application before sending keys
    -Added Support for the "TUNE" command to tune a XM station using the Numeric OSK
    -Added Support to load images directly into skin (IMG definition)
    -Improved ID3 Genre to support non-numbered/CUSTOM genres
    -Improved overall screen drawing functions to use more API and less VB (faster)
    -Fixed Issue with Radio not resuming at last frequency (Cinergy/WinTV)
    -Fixed Issue with Radio screen freezing up looking for Radiator when not installed
    -Fixed Issue with TAGXXX sometimes not loading when on first song of playlist
    -Fixed focus issues when trying to use the keyboard after clicking on Playlist or Scrolling Label
    -Fixed all the issues with the BackStyle of sliders "flashing" with some skins
    -Fixed Issue with Power Off not working when Exit fuction is set to power off
    -Fixed Issue with FireFox not embbeding when start page is set to "blank"
    -Fixed Issues With MM_Direction indicator (Thanks 307SW_NLD)

    Notes:
    -It may not seem much but I had to do a lot of research and testing to improve the screen drawing functions.. specially to "fix" the white border issue..
    -You will likely have to play with the size/position of the GIF file before it looks decent. This is because the size of the images is not the same so you have to tweak it to your logo...
    -Keep in mind the quality of the loaded images gets worse if you resize them out of proportions -- You should probably resize the image before using it in RR (to prevent distortions). This is the main reason why I've always been reluctant to add such feature.
    -You can load JPG and BMP files with the IMG definition, also, you CAN use transparency in those images by using the color FF00FF (Full Red and Full Blue, no Green -- PINK).
    -Keep in mind JPG compression will likely mess up any color masks you may have done to the image.

    Here are some GIF logos from the Original Brushed skins:
    A-M
    M-Z

    Thanks for your support,
    Guino.

    EDIT: I have updated the image/sliders support to render the images with the same quality as it used to be before this update.. If you downloaded the files before you saw this note, please re-download.

    I was waiting for something like this.

    Thx Guino!

    Oh btw, I just tested it, is it possible to make is so that yo can chose your path? Because now the picture has to stand in the skin folder.

    I am very cautious about making anything using full path.. anything skin related is skin-path relative so that you can post it along with the skin and make it work (from different locations) without having to edit any .skin files. Anything that is skin independent has settings in RR's folder pointing to the correct path.. Images loading on skins are very much skin related and should be skin-path relative. You can still point it to a file anywhere in the same drive letter... for instance if the image you need is in:

    C:\Images\Image.gif

    And your skin path is:

    C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\BMV2\

    Then you could use something like this:

    IMG,xxx,xxx,xxx,xxx,"..\..\..\..\Images\Image.gif"

    But I stand firm by recommending that you don't do that...
