@wfs1: I don't think you have it setup propperly:
1-You should not see any menu bars
2-You should not need to clip any areas of the skin
3-You should not use the LOAD command to start/show the maps, you should use "GE_START" only.
4-Double check you've deleted RR.EXE and you're running RoadRunner.exe (with that FILENAME) -- the one posted on the BETA site.
Where??? :) Awesome screen shots, now can I download your Freedom skin for RREarth?

Nice Skin sonic, thanks :)
I would like to know how well the latest beta version posted is working for those who tried the plugin.. it seems to be very consistent and very functional on my tests here.
Next, I need to know what else you'd like to see in it:
-AutoZoom Control (According to speed) ?
-Tilt control (Preset or + and - buttons) ?
-Goops Support to Display your friends (Requires Goops cooperation) ?
-Not sure what else is possible to do, but maybe you have suggestions.
its working on my home system quite well. I cant use it in the car yet though cause i dont wanna give up the latest phoco beta .exe :). The system i'm on now is a 1ghz with a gig of ram and yea.. not even CLOSE to usable lol.
Autozoom based on speed i'd consider a must. Tilt control as a present would be a pretty nice little feature. As for goops... dunno a thing about it :)
I guess itís almost time for me to upgrade
-It is NOT recommend to run this on machines with less than 512Mb of RAM - 256Mb
-It is NOT recommend to run this on machines with less 1.2Ghz - 1.3Ghz
-It is NOT recommend to run this on machines with less 32Mb of Video - 16Mb
Ok, posted another update (same link). This one has tilt control support and autozoom support (I did NOT update the skin yet -- check skin commands.txt and rrearth.ini for details). Let me know how this works.
I just did an upgrade on my CarPC (one of my home machines had the MB shot so I got some spare parts). I first ran it with 8Mb of video and 256Mb RAM and it had less detail (maps) and was pretty sluggish.. then I added another 256Mb and changed in the BIOS the shared memory for video to 32Mb.. now it has better map detail and runs pretty nice too.. My work laptop (where I develop), is a 1.2Ghz with 512Mb Ram and it works pretty decent too.. this one has a nice 128Mb video card though.. with less then 32Mb video you can only display high detail maps of 256x256 (center area of the screen) and the rest gets blurred out.. with 32Mb you can display 512x512 .. At some other level you can get it to display the full maps at high quality (don't know exactly what number that is).. those are settings in GE you can set (it enables/disables it according to the video memory available).

If I don't clip then then this will happen, the google earth is behind the rrearth screens. If I open task manager and task from RR to GE then back again it will try to resize there but as soon as I touch any part of the GE program it goes fullscreen and covers the RRearth skin. Also when I go to RRearth2 skin goggle goes fullscreen and if I toggle using taskmanager it will try to resize but none of the commands/buttons work.
I'm running this on a 2.4 P4 with 1-gig memory but my video is only 16 meg and I can't change or share it in the bios. I setup GE to use directx as they recommended..
Are you using GE version 4 ?
