    Question. Autoswitching Skins...

    I have a question. I havent been able to get this to work, and im not sure if im doing something wrong or if this is something that needs to be added.

    Im running the lsx void 2.0 skin. which I love, thanks LS, Well I would like road runner to look at the time on bootup or shortly after switch to the day or night skin for lsx2.0 accordingly. All I could find was references from a couple years ago using a day/night manual button. If you dont know the LSX2.0 skin has both a day and night skin that are identicle except for the colors. ones easier to read in the day, the others better for the eyes at night. Anyone know how this can be done that actually works? thanks.

    Autoskinmode=0 in RR.ini, activates it.
    But I am still trying to find out how to adjust it.

    Haven't found that the general.ini settings work...so if you figure it out please let me know. Mine keeps changing but can't find where the "switch data" comes from...hence the link to my thread...asking Guino if he has any more documentation on this feature...awaiting his reply.

    have a look at this alternative config file that was made a while back

    Lsx Void 3.0

    its does the auto skin switching and also the volume based on gps/speed options.

    I traced a link yesterday from one of your previous posts and looked at this. But I have some query's on it :-
    * Does this execute from my RR DIR ?
    * Do I have to fill in all the data...paths etc. so as not to overwrite the existing
    * Can't work out which options to select on the Gamma/Skin page when all I need is to get Autoskinmode working, and NOT gamma

    Wizz

    EDIT: Had a play with this and have answered questions 1 & 2. Still on 3. This appears to do little more than add autoskinmode=0 to RR.ini. I have already added this manually and still have a problem with the switchover timings

    *yes run it in the rr directory
    *no u dont have to fill in the data. it will read from ur rr.ini

    *if u are using the option to change it based on time make sure u put the night and day time in.


    *if u are chaing it based on GPS time then u need to wait till GPS connects.

    So if I select "Use Built in Gamma with GPS" & Auto Skin Change/ Auto Gamma change Disabled. Will this give me just the auto skin change without gamma change ?

    If I select "Use Built in Gamma" with Day/Night start times, Auto Skin Change/ Auto Gamma change Disabled. Will this give me timed auto skin change based on the set times without gamma change ?

    EDIT: @djmickyg Thanks for your help. Got it going now on my Desktop without GPS. Going to try it in my CarPC tomorrow, and keeping my fingers crossed that the gamma offset will work when I configure it to work WITH the GPS. If it does then I will be able to use this feature to adjust to the time zone I require, because it works in both (-) & (+) minutes.

    The Additional entries are:-

    gammamode=2
    autogammamode=2
    autoskinmode=0
    gpsgammamodeoffset=-17
    gammadaytime=08:0
    gammanighttime=21:30
    gammaday=0:0:0
    gammanight=-50:-50:-50

    speedatt=false
    speedattmute=false
    speedattunit=mph
    speedattgrad=80
    speedattvola=50
    speedattvolb=100
    speedattspeeda=0
    speedattspeedb=70
    speedattmode=line
    speedattvolzero=70
    speedattvolgainat50mph=10
    speedattmaxstep=10
    speedattvolzero=70

    phidget1=0
    phidget2=0
    phidget3=0
    phidget4=0
    phidget5=0
    phidget6=0
    phidget7=0
    phidget8=0

    I've now had chance to try the autoskinmode/gammamode in the car and it works in both Manual & GPS modes, provided the GPS app. is running....which in my case is MapMonkey in BMV2.

    Not tried the Speed/Volume app yet. (EDIT: Works Great !)
    Not sure what the phidget app is for... guess its input/output's. (EDIT: It's temperature sensors)
