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. 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. Or you can download from the AutAppMart, bear in mind you will still need to register an account on my forum to be able to register it.
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 Carwings or iDrive skin files as a guideline
Q. Would someone care to send me this?
A. They can, but bear in mind you still need to register an account on my forum.
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 to be able to use those cameras with the BYGPS function
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 go to the settings screen and set Debug to true, 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 PDF Manual or use the email at the bottom of my site.
Q. I've changed the Database 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.
Q. I can not get this to register or I have to register everytime I run it.
A.If you keep seeing the registration screen it could be a few things.
1. You need to make sure 'Log me on automatically each visit' is checked.
2. Permissions, you need to be running RideRunner with admin permissions so that the plugin can write to the registry.
3. There is also some browser settings that can block the automatic log in as well. ('Protected Mode' turned on in IE (Tools, Options, Security).)
Q. Will this run in Win7 and/or Win8?
A.. I have tested this on a Win8 Release Preview on a clean RideRunner install and it works fine. I would recommend that you run the installer as admin and that RideRunner has been installed in profile mode.
