    RRCalendar is still in Beta. Sonic has not finished it yet, and I had just started to get it incorporated into the skin.

    Ok, something new

    The Weather Channel decided to stop offering the free weather feed that RideRunner uses for weather information. Guino spent conciderable time on creating a new plugin, that will be available soon. It uses WeatherUnderground's free feeds. Nothing has changed as far as labels and such in the skin. So the new DLL will work with any existing skin.

    However, while the code was still fresh, I have added a bit of code to it, to allow animated weather icons. It also will allow you to define a custom path, to what weather images you would like to use. This way, no overwriting the default ones in the RR folder

    I also put together a settings screen that lets you change the icons, weather language, update intervals, degree symbol and such right in the skin. It still needs a few last items to be tended to, but here is a quick preview of where it is now. The screen capture quality is not the greatest, and makes the icons look like the animation is stuttering. They move nice and smoothly on the screen, when not recording it however

    I dont really mean i fly along the highway @ 100km and flick through the albums.
    But when you have a 3 second window to change an album while your stopped at a light or stopped behind someone etc.

    The way this skin is set up i have to make about 5 touches ( music > Browser> Browser > Albums > Play it ) to get to my albums.
    And add one more to that if im changing it a second time ( up directory ).
    Just wanted a faster way to access it. It cant find a button when changing it on the menu. Nor can i edit any files to make it work


    Thanks for the help to ppl that posted about making a phone work.
    I had worked it out before you guys replied
    Everything works as far as i can tell.... but my phone Omnia 7 is not supported by BS yet


    Using this skin over the last couple of weeks, i have noticed one issue. The skin freezes when i push down volume within the 1st minute or so of use.
    The only way i can get around this is to do something else 1st, like go into Music or Garmin, then go back to the main menu and reduce the volume.
    Once its frozen, Windows 7 will shut RR down, Winamp keeps playing. Then i reopen RR and all is fine.

    Just did a clean install of Win 7 with latest RR and Latest DFX. Having that issue when trying to close the skin. I tried the "Update DFX" button but that skin appears to be blank and does not function. How do I use option one in the suggested fixes?

    Also I remember talk awhile ago of DFX moving to it's own integrated "RRvoice" of some sort. Has this come to any kind of fruition? Just curious. Thanks as always to you guys, John, Blue.

    If the update screen is blank or doesn't work, then your DFX5.dll is not the newest. Like if you DL'd a the newer dfx installer but used a older donation patch on top of that, that's about the only reason that it would be like that. Till you get the correct dll to use the skin updater, I'd go with the second option and fix the two lines in the skin exectbl.ini file.
    RideRunner...The #1 FE, PERIOD.

    Rr + dfx5

    RIDE RUNNER WITH DFX5.1.... PROBLEM... TO CLOSE THE RR..... EXIT button not work. The RR NOT CLOSE

    This is because the ONEXIT event has finally been fixed that has not worked properly for a long time, so we did a work around to fix it, but now that it's been fixed, it causes a endless exit loop when you try to exit RideRuner.

    How to fix options:
    #1 5.1.1 users simply need to check for and install all updates and the problem will be gone.
    #2 Open up the skin's ExecTBL.ini file and fix these two lines, right at the top part of the file:
    PHP Code:
    "ONEXIT","BYVAR;FINAL_QUIT;END_CMD<<"
    "END_CMD"
    ,"SETVAR;FINAL_QUIT;1||SENDMSG;SystemListening;ListeningClose||KillColorPicker||ExitFennec||SAVETOSKIN;SKINRELOADING;0||BYVAR;closeplayeronexit;<<KillWinamp||BYVAR;GreetingOnOff;<<CheckResumeSetting||Now_Quit" 
    [B]

    do not get it!
    I made the changes in the exectbl.ini, but nothing works

    please someone help me tksss
