(to see if Festy is still around)
I've downloaded the dll from the first post. Whenever I reach RR after booting, and I click on an icon to open Milage, all I see is the current speed. The rest of the meters are blank.
I have to click on Fuel and then back for the trip meters to start.
I also hope that the meters will start without needing to click the Milage icon in the first place, that I can leave RR running, turn it off, turn it on, and the trip meters will continue counting.
1. Register the dll
2. Have the "X,Milage" line in your "menu.skin" file
Should work if the above two are done..
I have done both.
Except, I may have registered the milage.dll 40 times, is that the problem or do I need to uninstall?
does the program need to be in a specific folder?
1. Using a fairly recent RR release? (not sure how much will make a diff)
2. Do you have the settings file(ini) in the same folder, or the file at all? There are two, one(tripmeter.ini-?) is used to save the the milage to when RR is closed and the other (milage.ini) has the settings that the plugin will use, they should both be in the same location that the dll is in...
3. All else fails...Festy will have to make some other suggestions..cause I'm out of solutions. Sorry... Hope that ya figure out whats your prob.
Neither ini file is necessary for the plugin to start - tripmeter.ini saves your meter's values, and milage.ini is for a few optional configuration parameters.
So the trip meters *are* starting, you just have to click on a few things first?
Festy, i've write protected my c: drive, that's where WindowsXP resides.
RR & Milage is in d: drive.
When the PC starts, RR is started because the shortcut is in startup folder. Now I click on the TV icon (which I mapped to tripmeter.skin) and milage starts up.
There are 6 meters, but only the speed is shown. the other meters are blank.
If I click on the button "fuel", it lags about 2 secs then opens up the fuel keypad. I now click close, and all the meters are displayed, with work-meter and total-meter still displaying their last value before I shutdown the pc the night before.
so yes, the tripmeter is working but I have to click some Buttons first:
1/ tv icon (mapped to tripmeter)
3/ X (close)
ok there has been much confusion about which is the latest version..
I guess 0,60 is the latest..
so I am using a comma (,) as a decimal seperator in my system. 0,60 does not work unless i change my system settings to a (.) instead of a (,) only current speed and maximum speed are displayed, the rest just zeros
when i use 0.5.43 thay display info but other bugs are present (when closing and restarting RR garbage is displayed in all fields)
Thanks to Tissey who went through my skin and now the milage program works.
Good job on the program, Festy. It now works as advertised.
Only 1 request, Festy, when I press to log Work and I shutdown the PC, and then I restart the PC, the Work meter is reset to 0 by default. Can I change this to keep recording Work until I tell it to stop?
