    Wait.skin and more!

    So, I would really love to get some help with this, I've been trying to get a addon working, first I though it had to do with the fact that I didn't have a wait.skin, read somewhere that u needed that...

    So, I copied one from another skin and put it in my skin folder, but still I don't get the wait screen when I press the button to the plugin, instead RR just freezes up and I need to do a ctrl+alt+del to shut it down...
    this is the last lines from the debug file:
    Code:
    2006-09-29 21:23:25: Enter Exec: True, tripp.skin, , False
    2006-09-29 21:23:26: SDK command: REQUEST;milage;RRPATH
    just realized... that RRPATH in the end, does that mean that the .dll file is supposed to be directly in the RR folder... I put it in the skin folder...

    did you also copy the IMAGE file used by the wait.skin file from the other skin ?

    You should probably try this in a different skin if anything.

    Yupp... I tried it now with the BMV2 skin where I copied the wait.skin from and it still didnt work... as soon as I push the button I get the plugin skin and RR freezes... no wait skin at all...

    Is there any settings that I need to change since it looks like it doesnt load the wait skin at all...

    do you have any window/explorer folder or application running that has this word in the title: "milage" ? if so, close it and try again.. The plugin is probably freezing while it waits for RRPATH to be returned by RR.. I'll try to contact the author about the issue.

    Saw your post in the milage thread, it looks like a great addon and it fits my work perfectly... thanks for trying!

    Are you using English for regional settings ? if the code of the plugin is not "prepared" to run on different regional settings it may freeze up like that too.

    Start -> Control Panel -> Regional Settings, then set it to english at least to TEST it.

    Damned... I really hoped it would be a simple fix like this... tried both English(UK) and (US) but still RR freezes when I start the addon...

    Any reason that the wait file doesnt show, it just flips directly to the plugin skin when I click the button...
