    what you want is DIRECTORY LIST PLAYER...

    Try to search with these terms, it has been a while since I did it....

    You will find many posts by me which have modifications for MC2.0, Zots skins, and some others... you will also find some posts by me saying what needsa to be changed in the skin...

    basically: (from memory) you need to edit AUDIO_PLAYER file, find the file list and remove one of the arguments (because the player list has one less argument than the browser lists), then you need to save AUDIO_PLAYER.skin as AUDIO_BROWSER.skin, and in exectbl you need to map MUSIC to BROWSE...

    (i *THINK* those are the steps)... I'm waiting to get a skin that I really like to re-mod as I currently have my dads carpc up in the house with me to update...

    Hi RoyN, I was kinda hoping you might see this thread. I have spoken with you in the past about this. And tried to follow what you were saying. But alas its eluding me. Thats why I hoped there was a skin out there that did this already.

    I don't really follow what you just said either! I don't have much experience with skinning. I did look, found the audio_player.skin file, but have trouble with the rest!

    Hi Roy, I think like you I haven't actually found the "perfect" skin yet. But was hoping to find one that acted like I wanted, then just mod it to look how I want.

    How about BMV2? The default skin that comes with RR? You won't need to download it that way. Good for lazy people like us!

    Let me know if this skin really isn't the one to do this mod with, and I'll choose another.

    Look forward to your work!

    Cheers
    Jamie

    No problem mate... I guess I can do BMV2... but if you can imagine it I dont have it

    It doesnt com in the RR package anymore, and I'm on a virgin install... can you dig up a complete download link, or several parts of the package?

    cheers

    Here is a great site for RR skins http://www.rrdownloads.net/

    Actually can you use the Kuo skin 800x480 Day? This seems like a nice easy skin to move around in.

    I'll be away for a couple days though.

    Thanks again!

    Cheers

    ok...

    Here is how you adapt any skin to use directory list player:

    1. Edit ExecTBL.ini in the ROOT directory of Road Runner, and find the lines:
    Code:
    "ONDIRCLICK",""
    "ONFILECLICK",""
    You must delete these lines, otherwise it wont allow you to remap... dont worry, remoing them wont affect anything in the way RR runs... having them there blank and deleting them is exactly the same.

    2. Now go into your skin's directory (the skin you want to use directory player on), and create a file called ExecTBL.ini (or open it if it already exists). This is just a plain textfile, no need for anything fancy.
    Add this to the file, at the bottom if the file already exists, or just put this into a text document and save it with the name ExecTBL.ini (no .txt in the end!!!)
    Code:
    "ONDIRCLICK","BROWSE"
    "ONFILECLICK","!SELECT"
    "AUDIO","LIST"
    3. Now the trickiest bit... open the audio_browser.skin file in your skin, and find the line that has the directory listing, it should start with Sxx (some skins have two Sxx tags in the audio_browser, one for "current playlist" and one for "directory list", make sure you copy the entire tag for the DIRECTORY LIST one...

    4. open audio_player.skin, and paste the Sxx line you copied over from audio_browser in place of the Sxx line in audio_player. (One thing you should beware is that the 1st 2 numbers, x & y, are the position of the list, and sometimes the player and the browser have different positions, you might need to adjust this... save the audio_player.skin file with the new Sxx tag...

    5. (last step! yay!) rename audio_browser.skin to audio_browser.bak or whatever, and rename audio_player.skin to audio_browser.skin (yes, you no longer have audio_player.skin file, but thats no problem it isnt used anymore)

    now just try it out....

    Now for the lazy ones like me, here is the patching instructions if you are content with using Kuo's day skin... this mod is based on 800x480 day version.

    1. open c:\program files\road runner\exectbl.ini file (whatever your path to RR is), and remove the lines:
    Code:
    "ONDIRCLICK",""
    "ONFILECLICK",""
    just delete them if they are there... they might not be there depending on RR version, but older versions wont work with this dir-mod!

    2.
    delete your skins\kuo\audio_browser.skin file (or rename it as backup)

    3.
    create a file named AUDIO_BROWSER.SKIN in notepad or textpad or whatever and paste the following as the file contents:
    Code:
    MEDIACAR Skin
    MEDIACAR F-CNS(800x600Stretched)"audioplayer" Skin
    audio_player_off.jpg,audio_player_off.jpg,audio_player_on.jpg,audio_player_down.jpg

    HI RoyN, Thanks heaps for doing this. Greatly appreciated mate!

    I've tried it on a couple skins. Still blundering through a fair bit. I'm sure once I get my head around all this it will be better.

    Incidentally I am trying the irunner skin too, but with not much success. More of a hit and miss affair than anything.

    Let me ask a couple questions.

    1. Now I don't have/use a audio player skin, I must have the player controls in the browser skin right?

    2. With irunner I am trying to have the directory list on the left and the contents of the directory I select come up in the right column. I can do this can't I? Just a matter or re arranging things??

    Cheers, and thanks again for your help!

    Regards
    Jamie
