    Hmmm, something happened! RR with DFX is now locking up on button press, right after startup, not an issue with Carwings.

    Ran DFX update yesterday, I think this is the first time I've run RR with DFX since. RR debug doen't give any clues. I'll try disabling plugins.

    can someone please confirm if 1024x768 res works on this skin.
    i have tried changing it in rrconfig and manual in general.ini, but it always comes out as 800x600

    Yes, it works fine. In general.ini in the DFX folder change these settings to as follows.

    ShowWidth=1024
    ShowHeight=768

    yea, i do that, and rr comes up in a window thats 800x600 with 1024xx768 resolution, so the whole screen is NOT filled with rr
    i got 2 pc's and a system format to try, before this really starts to bug me. same thing happens w carwings

    ONLY change the general.ini found in the skin folder leave the resolution setting in the config alone and only those two lines, leave the OriginalWidth and OriginalHeight lines along as well.

    ok I've been out of the game for several years (DFX 4.0 days) and have decided to jump back in. I've downloaded all the necessary files (latest RR,winamp,Flash and I am currently in the testing phase with DFX 5.1.1) and have run into several issues. First off I cannot get the fonts to line up correctly (everything is cut off)and the track info is now showing up.


    Also having an issue with the weather not showing up. I followed the steps and registered at weather underground and entered my authentication code but still nothing

    Welcome back to RR and DFX. It's actually gotten harder to make a system work from scratch. My fonts don't look like yours but get cut off. Song-artist-album never gets displayed, weather is a crap shoot, and lets not talk about how most plugins do not work out of the gate, so to speak, or fail after a bit. RR locks up using DFX5, but not with Carwings, DFX Voice doesn't work, RRMaintenance says its missing a language file, etc. etc.

    I'm working on a writeup from the ground up of installing Win7, RR, DFX5 and plugins that will hopefully be of use to people. I just don't know when it will be finished, maybe never.

    It seems like the whole RR experience has regressed, and maybe as the era of the PC starts it's decline, so will the era of Car PCs.

    Sorry for the rant, back to topic.

    I have to completely disagree...

    My fonts don't look like yours but get cut off. Song-artist-album never gets displayed
    I went back to Oct posts in this thread and I couldn't find where you posted about said issue...
    The latter one I may have missed, when looking for the your font issue.

    weather is a crap shoot
    Not really RR's fault, following the directions for the newer version.

    RR locks up using DFX5, but not with Carwings
    Post a rr debug log and in the dfx skin.ini set the debug=true(is for the skin plugin debug logging) and also post that one (should be in the plugin folder)

    DFX Voice doesn't work
    Very vague statement, i know we haven't released a DFX skin settings file for it yet and I know this first hand as have been recently running the DFXVoice in the car with only the default ( aka carwings settings) and it does suck when i know cmds that are in the setup for this skin.

    RRMaintenance says its missing a language file, etc. etc.
    Imporperly installed RR and or not using most recent plugin version, i just tested this recently with a fresh install.

    It seems like the whole RR experience has regressed, and maybe as the era of the PC starts it's decline, so will the era of Car PCs.
    While the latter is true, I see it as things slowly getting better, not getting worse.
