    Any help would be appreciated. Again, thanks guys.

    The above feeling is correct

    Thanks guys (both of you that just replied).

    I know writing user manuals is tough, especially to try and put yourself in the place of a complete novice like myself.

    Ok, I'll clean it up (but not now, time to go out!)

    More Issues.

    Ok, I wiped out and reinstalled RR. Then I copied the extracted RR directory from the Carwings_transparent download into my C:\Program Files\Road Runner directory and followed the readme that came with it..

    Then downloaded Enforcers Plugins (thanks for the help enforcer on pointing me in the right direction). Then I Followed the Readme with Carwings and added movietimes too (these were steps 3,4 and 5 of the Carwings-T readme).

    Then I get to step 6 in the readme

    6.
    Go to "C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\Carwings_Transparent\coverflow" and run "Register.bat" then run "builder-artist.exe"
    Register.bat seems to work fine, then I run builder-artist.exe and I get the following error:

    [media]http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a18/Minoritydan/ScreenHunter_02Oct251638.gif[/media]

    Did I screw something up?


    With Enforcer's guidance, I extracted all of the 3 plugins I downloaded Per steps 3,4 and 5 of the Carwings-Transparent readme to my dekstop, then copied the folders to my RR\Plugins folder (that I created).

    My directory structure looks like the following:

    Go to your coverflow folder and:
    run "xmlparser.exe"
    delete builder.ini
    run builder_artist.exe

    Ok, I got past that. Then its asking me for album art, and I don't have any...

    Oh well. Shifting Gears.

    I have more questions about the instructions in the !!README included in Carwings_transparent skin directory.

    Taking a look at the following instructions:

    7.
    ADD THESE ENTRIES TO "EXECTBL.INI"

    "ONFILECLICK","SETVARBYCODE;imgfilename;LISTTEXT", backgrounds.skin
    "ONSKINSTART","$default$"


    "ONFILECLICK","SETVARBYCODE;imagefilename;LISTTEXT ",bg_browser.skin
    "UPDATE_IMAGE","SETVARBYCODE;imagefilename;LISTTEX T"

    8.
    For Garmin Mobile PC keyboard to work read GMPC_README.TXT (INCLUDED IN THIS FOLDER) and follow authors directions.
    Click and hold to activate this feature once directions are followed.
    Do I need to do this? It looks like those lines are already in the ExecTBL.ini file, and I did not add them.

    ALso

    I am still unclear if this skin includes the Garmin OSK. but I've read through the gmpc_readme.txt file -in particular, this part:

    For these files to work right, you will need to perform the following functions;

    //on the button that accesses your GPS screen, you will need to change it to this:
    "GMPC||GMPC_OVERLAY||RUNGMPC"
    //Alternately, you can add this to make it a press and hold function:
    @GMPC||GMPC_OVERLAY||RUNGMPC@
    I don't know what file to look in that controls the button that accesses my GPS screen. What file do I edit? I am new to RR.

    Also, further down in the gmpc_readme is this:

    //Add these lines to your skin's exectbl.ini:

    "GMPC_OVERLAY","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOL .skin"
    "GMPCOSK","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOSK.ski n"
    "X_OVERLAY","SENDMSG;ElcosMenu;Exit"
    "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"
    "RUNGMPC","RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP",GMPC.skin
    But when I look in Carwings-Carwings transparent ExecTBL.ini, it already has those lines added. SO I assume I dont add them again, right?

    I don't mean to be a pain, I'm just confused...

    Also, I don't have HD radio or Sirius, but I have XM (and I got that to play through RR finally!) - how do I remove those buttons that basically do nothing from RR when it starts up?

    Also, is there no slider to quickly Fast Forward through music files with this skin? Most of my music files are large (200MB) single files, so they are like 2 hr radio shows (Above & Beyond TATW, Armin's ASOT - and the like I have like 2TB of music files - and some are 8 hrs long broadcasts). Sorry if these are horribly obvious questions I am asking...

    For Garmin; All you need to add is the program path in your rr.ini file. Everything else is already done.

    For removing buttons; You have to use the sdk files in photoshop to edit the menus.

    For Fast Forwarding; There is a progress indicator at the top of the music screen, between the text "MP3 Player and the folder icon. It looks like an upside down triangle. It is on the small side, so you will have difficult skipping with it.

    As of now, Garmin does not launch when I click the button. A menu pops up to the left, but I don't know what that does or how to get rid of it other than exiting RR and restarting.

    Ok, I think that is over my head at this point. I'm already super confused. I'll skip this for now

    That's because you're not long pressing the navigation button. Short press is for iGuidance, long press for Garmin. You can change this by editing the skin file.

    OSK to match skin added to dowwnload. If you downloaded before 10/27 addedlink to just the OSK. Just drop in your carwings_transparent skin folder.
