    one of them i fixed a unicode issue with weather, not that you would have that issue, since you're in usa...

    rule #1, TEST with carwings... (i know no search... well if someone would make the skin... actually i might have one..need to look)


    profile is the right way to go, if soemthing is wrong.. dont switch to legacy mode.. lets solve the problem!

    just set in rr.ini your city

    cityweather=Bend, OR

    and possibly delete the 2 .xml cache files...
    Heh I didn't realize there were three releases this month for RR alone. I was testing in DFX, then moved back to carwings. Problem remained. Also you have to delete the xml files before you search again, every time for a new city. Profile mode broke stuff, so out the door it goes, I've got too many other things to focus on, namely graduating on time!

    Only b/c you didn't write it means that it should be rewritten BY YOU...just like all the other "xxx needs to be rewritten, bla bla" If we had the time that you seem to have for working on RR then maybe someone else would have rewritten it, but then it still wouldn't be right b/c ........

    Chill Blue, you're starting to sound like me.

    I quit complaining cause my issues never get fixed. I only update my build every 3-4 months cause it takes me that long to rewrite all my RRCode given the "improvements" (deletions) of each new RR release. I realized the .xml files had to be deleted from non-profile mode installs so I just wrote an autoit script and added it to the weather call. If I had moaned about it we'd have had ten days and 50 posts about "did you test it in Carwings" and "It ain't broke".

    I'm just fed up with the profile mode mafia and fixing things by eliminating backward compatibility!

    Yea having been out of the game a few months, i wondered what the sudden push was for profile mode. Car pc's are inherently embedded I don't see much of a point to it.

    I understand how frustrating that can be, on my team one of the guys decided that we didn't need something that was key to my thesis and just deleted the code without telling me. I bloody wanted to kill him.

    In the debug logs I've found a lot of erros within plugins, right or wrong I just make sure the program files plugin folder & the user profile plugin have the same files & folders, and that has fixed a lot of my errors.

    Can you add some detail to that? please. As in, the file(s) and folders in programfiles\ride runner\plugin\plugin_x match %user\usersdocuments\ride runner\plugin\plugin_x

    What you have just said in your post is what I do, I just check in each folder so that there are no conflict in files (not found any yet)

    So the "Program files\ride runner\plugins" & "user\usersdocuments\ride runner\plugins" have the same size & have the same amount of files & folders.

    I know it's an extra amount of work doing this for each pluging, but at the end of the day I'm paying very little or nothing for this software/skins/plugins and I'm grateful for the the work that has been done so I'm able to get my car PC up and running with having spent on products like centrafuse
