    It's in skin.ini

    John, I came across a simple problem.

    I went in to change the GPS speed volumes, and when you press and hold a button so you can change the values, the numbers are not aligned with the semi-transpartent gray background/buttons. But this is NOT the case for the "windows down, Loud" button, things are ligned up. It is only the case when you change any of the values for the other 5 presets.

    EDIT:
    I added this to the Bug Tracker on your website.

    Try looking in your rr.ini, and in the skin.ini and find a line, if its in there localcaptureinterval and change it to 0

    Then look in the RR Root folder for zips.dll, and if there delete it.

    These are the only two things that I know of that are timed... The skin itself does not have any recurring timers.
    I think i had this same problem but at 60 secs. try and delete the Zips.DAT file. Pretty sure that's what fixed it for me. Its been awhile so I'm not 100%.

    I did have that problem before, too.

    The exact fix for me was to keep the "zips.dat" and remove the "ziplocator.dll"

    This solves most people's problems

    So. Setting localdatacaptureinterval in rr.ini to 0 fixed this problem. I did try to delete ziplocator.dll and zips.dat before and that didn't help. Thank you John! I'm back now!
    Must be some odd bug in RR then?

    the data capture interval sets the duration in minutes between location queries to fill in the City/County/State, etc blanks used in DFX. The zips.dat file contains the database so deleting that shouldn't really fix anything (unless you were somehow querying a bad entry??). Deleting the dll solves a lot of problems because it doesn't work on a lot of machines (and by deleting it, the system will be able to query without it).

    setting the capture interval to 0 disables it altogether i guess? i would be curious.. however if you deleted your dat file, you won't be getting anything anyways :-p

    glad you got it working

    edit: out of mere curiosity.. do you currently have RR set to read GPS info (i.e. an Xport setup) ?

    Hi there,

    First off, hats off to all those that are involved in the development of this skin, it is truly AWESOME!!!

    Maybe a daft question, but how do you get the visualization working on the main menu screen?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Thanks

    Fair enough, I have used the help file to get the visualization running in the music screen which works perfectly, but at the bottom the help file says and I quote "You can also use the Visualization on the Main Menu screen. Check HERE to see how", however there is absolutely no link to anywhere.

    Yikes, that was a part of the help file that I had not finished... I has been corrected for the next release. In the mean time, This is from the addition to the help file:
    You can also use the Visualization on the Main Menu screen.

    Depending on the layout you have chosen for the center of the main menu, most of them have a hidden button at the top, and the bottom of the center square.

    Pressing the top, turns on and off the visual, while pressing the bottom cycles through the plugins.
