    RR, FD and window issue


    I have a little problem with integrating FD.

    I designed an address skin from into RR to FD

    I call this skin with:
    "LOAD;ADDRESS.SKIN;address;FreeDrive.exe;FreeDrive ||SendMsg;FreeDrive;address","address"

    the problem is that I start FD within RR normally the the window with the cities and the streets didn't appears, as you can see at the image below.

    If I start FD Previous to RR (at windows starting), and after that, I start RR, the the window appears OK. This involve that I must have FD allways started to work.

    Do you know what the problem is?

    thanks and Regards

    I assume you are actually loading FD on BEFORE you load your screen ? otherwise you have to place the entire path to FD on your load command cause just FreeDrive.exe won't cut it.

    Same problem here, as well in 1.0 preview and 1.0 preview update 1. I think it is an FD issue, because FD version 0.9 didn't have this problem.

    Remember that its possible to do an FD address skin and embed RR commands into it with 1.0. I know its only a workaround.

    Will see if we can do anything about the skinning issues.

    Ye I load FD as external_gps skin all works except only this.

    I know that I can do the skin into FD, the black window with the osk is FD, but doing this way I have more space for the window.

    thanks and regards
