    DualRRServ [ Released 12/8/08 ]

    This is a simple and easy plugin to use if you are running two instances of RR and wish to send cmds to the opposing running RR.

    There is one DLL and one cmd to be used to command the other RR.

    Steps to use:
    1. DL zip, extract to a SINGLE location of your choosing, and register it.
    2. Add "X,DualRRServ" (w/o quotes) to both menu.skin or plugin.txt files that the two RR's are using
    3. Done.


    Add some custom commands to one or both for the opposing RR to execute via a simple cmd.

    Example in one of the RR's root Exectbl.ini file:
    "Audio","RRx2;Load;Audio_Player.skin||Load;Audio_P layer.skin"

    In that example it would tell the other rr to load the "Audio_Player.skin" then load "Audio_Player.skin" as well, sort like in sync.

    The command to use is "RRx2;<COMMAND FOR OTHER RR TO EXECUTE>", and will work for both RR's for the opposite RR. Note: currently only single cmds can be sent to the other RR. Just make a single custom cmd that would contain all the cmds that you would like to execute using the exectbl.ini files.

    There is also a Indicator showing when they are linked and ready to receive cmds for the other RR, and it's "DualRRServ_Conn"

    so you could build one skin with controls and another for the second RR app with only videos etc... like a control screen and a display screen. that would be cool.
    Um, I guess this is where you put something witty.WITTY

    Sorry, one question (as I have a lot of skin work before I can test this out myself)...
    Has any one tried using this to have the top RRx2 embed the Vis from the bottom RR? For some reason that seems tricky-er than embedding a separate app.

    Well, I don't really see any issue with that assuming that in the bottom "Controler" RR, you wouldn't be embeding anything, and doing so would allow the top "Display" RR to grab and embed the app or vis..ect...

    The only issue i do see with having two RR's open is that some plugins that use the window messages to communite with RR would be confused or command the wrong RR as there would then be two windows titled "RoadRunner"

    I haven't downloaded but you have given me an idea for my setup.


    Two PC's (or more) each running RoadRunner, with one central one controlling the others.

    I am going to raise you one. (RRRemote - Same as this but across PC's)

    This will allow me to have a seperate PC for my headrest monitors, or even one PC for each one.
