    2. Make sure that the slider file path (folder) and slider images are exists in your skin folder.

    NEW FUNCTIONALITY IN v1.0.2
    1) "TUNE" command will load your "numosk.skin". You can enter a frequency and hit [enter]. It will tune radioSHARK to that frequency.
    2) "ADDPRESET" command will load your "osk.skin". You can enter the preset name and hit [enter]. It will create new preset with current frequency and name that you entered.

    2) Slider support.


    NEW FUNCTIONALITY IN v1.0.0

    1) Pause music or video if is it currently playing in RR when showing plugin screen.
    2) Return to the previous RR screen without closing the plugin. The radio will continue playing. Just change the “EXIT” to “BACK_TO_RR” command in your radioshark_player.skin
    3) Mute radio if music or video start playing in RR and un-mute when returning to radio plugin.
    4) Resume music or video when returning to audio_player or video_player screens.
    5) Close previous instance of radioSHAK.exe


    INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. Make sure you have radioSHARK USB Radio Client v1.1.7.0 or later installed on your computer.
    * The software that comes with the radio Shark on the CD is outdated. To download new software please visit http://www.griffintechnology.com/support/radioshark/

    2. Copy “radioSHARKPatch.exe” into radioSHARK installation folder (e.g., “C:\Program Files\Griffin Technology\radioSHARK\”) and run
    to patch radioSHARK.exe

    3. Copy “radioShark.ini” file and "radioSHARKPlugin" folder into your RoadRunner installation folder (e.g., “C:\RoadRunner\”)

    4. Copy content from the “SKIN” folder into your current RoadRunner skin folder (e.g.,“C:\RoadRunner\SKINS\LSX\” and/or "C:\RoadRunner\SKINS\BMV2\", etc...).

    5. Open “radioShark.ini” file and make sure that the path of the radioSHARK executable is correct (e.g., “radioSharkPath=C:\Program Files\Griffin Technology\radioSHARK\radioSHARK.exe”).

    6. Add the following line into Roadrunners’ ExecTLB.ini file:
    "RADIOSHARK","PLUGIN;RRRadioSharkPlugin;C:\RoadRun ner\radioSharkPlugin\radioSharkPlugin.exe"

    7. Modify the tuner button command in the "menu.skin" file to:"RADIOSHARK","AM FM Radio".

    8. To run pluging as standalone application you must set: standalone=true in radioShark.ini (not used in version 1.0.2).

    * Make sure you have valid wait.skin file in you favorite skin folder. The RoadRunner will not load any plugins without it.


    You are done!

    Looking good! I've tested it on one of my machines and it works like a champ. However, I can't get it to work on the MMI Skin. Other then that it looks great! I'm actually thinking about installing my RadioShark now because there's finally a good solution for RR w/ the RadioShark

    Great work and thanks a million!

    MMI missing "wait.skin" file. The wait.skin is requred by RoadRunner to load plug-in.

    1. Create text file in your SKINS/MMI/ folder.

    2. Add following text (do not include “---------------------------------”):
    ---------------------------------
    MEDIACAR Skin
    MEDIACAR wait skin
    splash.jpg,splash.jpg,splash.jpg,splash.jpg

    END
    ---------------------------------

    3. Rename it to wait.skin

    That’s all.

    Perfect! Now all I have to do is create a skin that will match the skin I'm using RR and I'll be done. I'll continue testing and let you know of any issues.

    It is not clear what you mean "can’t get it to play". Please be more specific. Does RoadRunner loading plug-in? What do you see on the screen after plug-in is loaded?

    I had the same problem (it wouldn't work, just said "LOADING" and never came back). Turns out that in the line of text I had copied from the readme.txt in the installation package, there was an extra space in one of the paths that you copy to the Exec TLB.ini file. Remove the space between the 2 "n"s in Roadrunner. and that fixed it for me.

    Working great now, Thanks a million Evolution III!!!!!!

    Tried the "n" fix. Need to try again once I finish installing my Carputer in the truck.
