    I was able to get everything setup for my local region and I recompiled to obtain the correct maps for my area (California). I also ran the radar.exe program (after recompiling) to load the skins directory with the correct maps etc. I can view these via another application with no problem.

    When I right click on the 'blank' window it does appear to be a flash window but for some reason it's not playing. Any thoughts???

    Once again, thanks for the great skin and the assistance!

    Just noticed one more thing.....

    When using the Audio List Panel I get 2 small blank areas on the screen (above the listing itself). Is this also a transparent flash. If so, perhaps this is the problem. Is there something 'special' I should have setup to make this work?

    Ok thats it, after seeing that pic of chucks when I reinstall later I'm putting RR on the car PC instead of the other...........

    If I put it on, I'v got to use it etc, thats one reason I never changed, its like when you have one frontend yo get used to it and swapping is an headache, but I install only one, I have to learn it......

    I just put RR on my desktop so I can play in the warmth, as its cold outside, so, not wanting to be spoonfed etc, does a working version of chucks skin exist with uk data, I dont mind playing with it in US data and working it out but all those lines in the previous msg's look a bit complicated for me in my first hour........

    There is no buttons any more just touch the thumbnail to blow up and the center of the map to go back to thumbnails.

    Try my new update and see if that helps

    When you change the size or location of the skin in the general.ini you need to move stuff around to get them to work

    That is the active list indicators and flash buttons to change active list


    "SELPL.swf"
    "SELDL.swf"
    "ACTIVEDL"
    "ACTIVEPL"
    "LIST2.jpg"

    You can load any jpg from any weather page USA or UK just mod the radar.au3 file and compile it

    InetGet("http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_dca_closeradar_medium_usen.jpg", "\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\Chucks\Weather1.jpg", 1)
    InetGet("http://image.weather.com/images/maps/current/curwx_600x405.jpg", "\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\Chucks\Weather2.jpg", 1)

    On the 2nd page in the thread linked below, halfway down a WHILE back I posted ALL the US regions from weather.com's image server including the file names.

    It's in a access database like this:

    Code:
    [column]North East [column]Precipitation [column] images.weather.com/northeast.jpg
    So if you guys needed the urls to images, its up here.

    Developer Resources, Post yours ! (PRE-FAQ Thread)

    Ok. It's work now, but another question. Some pics I have in gif format. It's view in small size, but don't scale to full window. Can it make? Or I must find picture in jpg-only?
