    I think if you delete the splash.jpg from the RideRunner/Skins/DFX folder, the 4.95 one will go away and will default to the Ride Runner splash.

    Try RevFE
    The best resurrected frontend I've ever used, period.

    Same to me here and I believe I know why.

    To me looks like what is broken/not-working its the overlay or "ElcosMenu" that makes possible to overlay a picture/skin (like DFX5 OSK) over a program window.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but this is a creation of ELCAMINO and based on the current disputes that are between developers looks like a different solution will be required to have this working.
    I can add it myself (ElcosMenu) and get it working correctly, however I choose to respect ELCAMINO wish of not using any of his creations under DFX5 and I looked for a different solution.

    Actually I got around it replacing DFX5 OSK with a translucent adjustable keyboard that someone posted while back in the forums. Just changed the action on the OSK button to load the keyboard.
    The name is Free Virtual Keyboard and I believe you can get it at
    http://www.freevirtualkeyboard.com

    It does come with .ini where you can tweak color among another settings and it does support resizing. This is just a suggestion and I'm not encouraging or endorsing the use of this app.

    I did the same thing for my install last week. It is MUCH more reliable than the OSK implemented with the skin overlay (mine would randomly disappear, and then I'd be stuck without a way back to the DFX menu). Not to mention, the freeVK method is usable as an OSK whenever you need it, not just for Garmin. I bound mine to popup with the push-and-hold on my griffin wheel.

    Is anyone having a problem with the "Adjusting to Night Time Viewing" window going away after the skin switches? The task TimeSwitch.exe stays around and must be killed manually.

    Not sure if its the same bug that I found on the first 5.0 version install but check this out:

    Open the following folders RideRunner -> skins -> DFX5 then open the file:

    skin.ini

    scroll down and look for the line(s) that you need to correct:

    MenuExec_5=LOAD;Garmin_GPS.skin;!CDP_FIELD_WND;J:\GarminMobilePC\Que.exe;!CDP_FIELD_WND

    CHANGE DRIVE TO C: if you Garmin on that drive letter or the letter where you have it.

    NOTE: Your MenuExec number could be different. Just do a search for GarminMobilePC on your Notepad and correct with the right drive letter.

    Hope this will help.

    I grabbed it a while ago when LSX Void 3 was just out. So I don't know where to find it anymore. The delete song consists of a deletecurrent folder some confirm skins. I don't know if it's related but the "Remove Song" button doesn't work for me either. I never use it but was trying it out for my debugging. I don't have the source for the delete.exe so I don't know where it's breaking. Basically what happens is that I press the delete song button that I added, I get a confirm screen, select yes and then I get a Delete Completed but nothing happens. The only way I got it to work is if I add a new album and select delete song before I do anything else. I need this function!!! If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. I'm going to continue to dig in.
