    Streets and Trips Question

    I have S&T 2007 and S&T 2011. Right now for navigation I'm using S&T 2007 for navigation as I use another program called S&T Keys that automates the Nav routines and adds Hotkey functionality for a lot of common tasks in S&T. (Another Autoit created program) Versions from 2007 to 2010 are available. Unfortunately the developer is having a hard time deciding if he wants to take a stab at 2011. This is why I continue to use the 2007 version. For those interested, you can find S&T Keys in its various versions here http://www.laptopgpsworld.com/free-add-ons-microsoft-streets-trips/. S&T Keys is free as well.

    My questions...

    (1) What version(s) of S&T will work with the DFX S&T Skins?
    (2) If a skin doesn't exists that works with S&T 2007 could one be made?
    (3) Could S&T Keys functionality be worked into a skin?
    (4) Not being familiar with programming, scripts, etc., is it relatively easy to learn how to create or modify this stuff myself? I've had a hard time finding good documentation showing exactly how a lot of this stuff is done.
    (5) If not, is there someone that would take on making a skin for S&T 2007 and adding S&T Keys functionality to it?
    (6) Even better, could someone familiar with Autoit take a look at S&T Keys 2010 and see if they could modify it to work with S&T 2011? My understanding is that there weren't that many changes from S&T 2010 to 2011 but enough to keep S&T Keys from working with 2011.

    Seems when you install the latest 5.1 donation patch it reverts the splash screen back to 5.0 instead of 5.1

    Hello,
    I just did a clean install of RR with the latest DFX 5.1.0 running on XP home. I am having the following 2 issues

    1. When RR loads, and I play a song, there is no sound, until I go to Winamp and adjust the volume bar (just move it a little bit). I had read that someone said to make sure SpeedATT was set to FALSE in both the RR.ini and skin.ini.

    2. When i hold any button down (e.g. FUSION) to change the button to something else, nothing happens and it freezes my RR to the point i need to kill it within taskmanager.

    Attached is my debug file, any help is appreciated.

    Opps...that is correct. That should have been removed actually, the changing of the splash with the donation patch.

    Sorry

    We have now removed the speedatt & speedattmute settings from the skin.ini, if/when changed in the skin, it will save ti the rr.ini now (installer will be updated sometime this weekend) As for you sound issue, not really sure.

    Looking at the code in the skin plugin, it seems be hung up durring the creation of the button list. Have you manually changed the skin.ini? try renaming your current skin.ini to something different, then make a copy of the skin (orig).ini and rename it to skin.ini and see if that still gives you the same issues. Thanks for attaching a debug log without us asking for it.

    Seeing that a few have brought up the S&T's topic a few times, I will try and look into some of the posted issues to see if they are in fact a skin issue or is an issue on the users computer, sometime during next week.

    See if the sound comes back if you go into the Mixer (accessed through the Music Player screen or you can set a button to go straight to it) and move the WAVE slider bar a bit. I have a similar problem and this is what makes the sound come back.

    Sometimes I see the BAL, BASS, and TREBLE bars all at the bottom as well but WAVE is almost always the one that brings the sound back.

    BTW I am also using Winamp (don't remember the version but it was current a month ago) and the line-in plugin.
    Zotac N630I-D-E M/B w/ Nvidia 7100, E5300 cpu, Xenarc 700IDT, M2-ATX, XP, RR & DFX 5.1.

    Ok, here is the fix for the InternetRadio list updating, without touching the "My Stations" section in the ini.

    OH MY GOD john and everyone else (bluezx3). 5.1 is AWESOME. i just installed the latest RR patch, then patched my 5.03 dfx to 5.1. everything went smooth, it took about 20min total from the time i turn on the pc to when im playing with the internet radio.

    about that internet radio- you saved my freakin life. trying to keep updated playlists before was always a scheduled task. i would need at least an hour or so of hard programming to keep the internet radio buttons up to date. NO MORE!!! i used almost all shoutcast links before anyway, so this is just killer.

    it loads so fast now too! back like the old days, but with tons of features. all i really want right now is timeshift functions on the net radio.... i swear if i find time ill start that myself.

    by the way, is there a chance you can add a preset from a local playlist file? would be nice option to have once you click and hold on the button, with the choice to grab a station from the list to also grab from a local playlist. that would eliminate any need for manual editing in the ini's. edit: well actually you changed the way the buttons are labeled, i cant even use the skin editor anymore to add buttons. how to i add a station from a local playlist i have? i like to get stations of thestreamcenter.com

    also, when it auto finds the stations on shoutcast, the list it gives you isnt able to scroll down to see all the available finds. it only shows the dozen or so stations that fit on the screen, and cuts off the rest. anyway to see all the stations it finds?
    THANKS AGAIN GUYS!
