    roadrunner off center of screen *newb*

    hey i just installed this great frontend today. My problem is that i am running from a laptop with no s-vid out, so i have to use a generic scan converter to get a really crappy image, since my cheapy chinese 7" lcd has no other inputs aside of component....anyways, I have to run my screen at 640x480x60hz for the scan converter to work, but when i set rr to the same res...it comes up to big and is centered off to the right of the screen, i can even view 1/3 off my desktop on the left side off the screen....and i can't even see the bottom of rr...it's just to big. Please tell me their is a workaround....I built my carpc from leftover components and do not want to put any money into this project.

    thanx

    *edit* I am using the stock skin for RR

    so your trying to convert an exact copy of what appears on the laptop screen to a composite signal with a scan convertor?

    and you have the laptop resolution set to 640x480? does it look ok on the laptop screen?

    go to the skin folder your using and edit the general.ini file to something like..

    OriginalWidth=800
    OriginalHeight=600
    ShowWidth=600
    ShowHeight=480

    :-)

    thank you, that helped...ughhh 2 more questions...1st, when i fullscreen the visuals...i can see RR fighting to be on top of the visualizations...i see flashes of the RR trying to come through the visual any ideas?

    secondly....my laptop HDD is only 10 gigs so i have an external hdd hooked up...is there anyway to set 2 seperate music folders locations in RR?

    Hi m8, ..

    You need to set the correct vis in winamp and in rrconfig, if your using AVS in winamp or milkdrop then you need to set it in rrconfig as well.

    You can set a button up on the skin so when you press it, it will show your second harddrive.. something like..

    b01,xx,xx,xx,xx,"setpath;D:\"

    I think something like that would work.. then use "!browse" and that would take you back to your music folder on your c drive
