Q. Why should I use this plugin version in RR as opposed to the Standalone version?
A. There is no reason why you shouldn't use the standalone version, however this version has better intergration with your RoadRunner skin and can also work with transparent ones
Q. I have put my country code in the ini but there is no cameras in the list?
A. The initial download only comes with the UK database, after you have entered your country code in the ini, run the program and leave it running for at least 5 mins. If the skin you are using has the 'New Database' indicator on it, it should light up when a new database is downloaded, click on this indicator and it will load the new database. If the skin has no indicator, stop and restart the program. If the database is still not there it could be that my website is down, you are behind a firewall which has blocked the download or the program itself was updating.
Q. Why is my country not supported?
A. I have collected as many countries as I can where I can, either from searching or other users providing links, if you country is not supported it is either I haven't found a website with the cameras or if I have they are moving images which TC does not support at this time. Bear in mind if the site is not in English I may have trouble understanding it.
Q. Why is my State/Town/City not supported?
A. I have collected as many countries as I can where I can, either from searching or other users providing links, if your state/town/city is not supported it is either I haven't found a website with the cameras or if I have they are moving images which TC does not support at this time.
Q. I have found a site for my Country/State/Town/City what do I need to do to get these added to the databases?
A. If it is a new Country then firstly provide me with a link, if it is not in English you may have to harvest the info yourself. Please provide the info in the following format
<url of camera>
<Location of camera including town/state>
NB the lat and lon need to be in decimal format and not Degrees Minutes, seconds. ie (34.4567,-23,9465)
Q. How can I download this wonderful creation?
A. Register on my forum at www.en4cer.co.uk/forum , when activated go to the downloads section.
Q. I have registered on your site but am still not activated, why?
A. I do not monitor the forum registrations 24/7 so it could take hours or possibly a day or two before I can activate you. If I am going away I will normally put this info into the news section of the forum. If however after a few days of registering you have not been activated then contact me via PM here. Using the same username as you do on here will help you get activated quicker.
Q. Does this application only work with Road Runner?
A. Yes, this is a dedicated RoadRunner Plugin, However there is a standalone version available.
Q. How do I change the size?
A. The plugin will run at the same size as RoadRunner.
Q. Can I use RRSkineditor to edit the skin?
Q. How do I embed this is my skin?
A. Add a button with the command RRTC, and then design the screens to match your skin. Use the BMV2 skin files as a guideline
Q. Would someone care to send me this?
A. The Terms And Conditions expressly forbid the distribution of this program, please register on my forum to get your copy.
Q. Does this show redlight and speed cameras?
A. No, this is only for traffic movement cameras, for speed cameras a red light cameras try Gatso Hunter.
Q. Is the video live or updated? or mix?
A. Currently this is only static image cameras, these get updated by the websites anything from every second to some which update every 20mins.
Q. Does your plugin accepts video traffic cams?
A. Not at present, this maybe something for the future, but at the moment this would probably take too much bandwith.
Q. I would love to be able to add some custom images to the traffic cam app?
A. At present this is not possible, but it is something I will look into
Q. How do you pull coordinates for traffic cams?
A. This can be very laborious.
One method is to use google earth combined with the website the cameras are on and the Traffic Camera pictures.
You will need to look at roughtly where they say it is (there is normally a map of sorts), look at the picture, zoom in on google earth until you can marry the picture image with what is seen in google earth and then read the co-ordinates. It also helps if you are fairly familiar with the area/country.
Sometimes you are lucky and if you look at the source of the page with the map, it will sometimes provide the GPS coords in their somewhere, these can then just be copy and pasted into notepad.
Q. Why do you need the GPS coords with the cameras?
A. Two fold, one is to be able to see on a map where a camera is in the serach screen, help you decide if it is somewhere you go. And secondly I hope to add the ability to show cameras based on the position, so as you move it will always show the cameras nearest to you.
Q. I keep getting this error; error x or this function doesn't work?
A. First, check the whole of this thread to see if the same questions has been asked before and more importantly answered before. Second add debug=true to trafficcams.ini run RR, do what you do to get the error and then send me the debug.txt and your trafficcams.ini file. Address to send is in the readme.txt or use the email at the bottom of my site.
Q. I've changed the Datbase name in the Countries screen but I don't get a database for the country selected (pre 1.4 versions may also get a Runtime 5 error?
A. Check that your firewall has not blocked www.dropbox.com or www.en4cer.co.uk as this is where the DB's are stored.
