    Which RoadRunner exe should we have?

    I'm trying to determine which RoadRunner.exe should we have? I have a few problems after the update to DFX4.

    1. The logo, spinning logo, playlist, etc. don't show up now. If I go back to date 12/13/07,the weather does not work. Also, I used Mitch's RoadRunnner.exe since it had updates for XM and HD but that one has the same problems too.
    EDIT - I had the wrong roadrunner.exe (found the correct one 5/8/08 and it works; however Mitch's version does not work)

    2. The Calendar (Rainlendar) does not work (blank). I moved the folder over from DFX3 to DFX4 but that did not make a difference.
    EDIT - There is a new Rainlendar version and you have to go to that thread to get this to work or you can just rename the button back to Calendar to use the old one.

    3. This may be a feature change, but TrafficCams pull up GoogleMaps. I liked the cameras setup, so I will try to change that back.
    EDIT - I will use the TrafficCams camera view and keep GoogleMaps like it is.

    Great Job John on this update....love the new features. BlueZX3 - great plugin man!

    Thanks for the help....

    There is still a button for "traffic cams" as opposed to "google traffic". If you go into utilities that is going to bring up Google Traffic. If you just use the provided menu button it is for Traffic Cams plugin, which you have to install yourself. Currently there is no menu button for Google Traffic, but it is easy to make one.

    There is a WeatherEurope.ini file in the folder. In it you set your language, Continent, and Country. For instance for France, it would look like this:
    John, to check it, i need to wait your next full release ?
    or you put the modification somewhere ?

    many thanks

    John, another outstanding update!!!! This is one of the most stable, almost bugfree skins for RR. CUDOs to you and Blue. Got just about everything working. This skin is so featurepacked I need to figure out how to add pages cause I can't decide on all the stuff I want

    For those of you that also listen to FM , XM, and Sirius, I have some skin mods for DFX. I may have mentioned these for DFX2 and 3, but the thread is so long another time can't hurt. For radio controls from screens with next and previous buttons, replace NEXTTRACK/NEXT and PREVTRACK/PREV with RRNEXT and RRPREV, respectively. To get the radio preset to display outside the radio screens, globally replace TAGTITLE with TRACKNAME.

    I do need help from the RRCoders out there to help me figure out how to clear the ARTIST and ALBUM labels and whenever the radio is playing automatically replace them with RDSTEXT and RDSNAME. I was going to do it manually with
    Code:
    L20,525,85,255,29,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,23,#DFXFont#,"TAGALBUM>>sil_rdsps","LEFT"
    L21,91,82,359,36,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,23,#DFXFont#,"TAGARTIST>>sil_RDSText","SCROLL-LEFT"
    But realized there's already a button over the ARTIST label. So I have no idea how to automate this. There was discussion elsewhere about setting an RR variable for what audio source is current. Taking that info I'm sure we could come up with some exectbl.ini coding that could read that info whenever you change screens and update the artist and album fields when the radios are active. Something like:
    Code:
    "AUDIOCHECK","evaluate activeaudio;fm;byVARBYCODE;rdstext;ALBUMVAR;byvarcode;rdsname;ARTISTVAR
    and replace TAGALBUM and TAGARTIST throughout the skin with ALBUMVAR and ARTISTVAR. I just have no idea how to accomplish this.

    I don't know if anyone posted this yet (I just saw the release of 4, so i am way behind on the thread) but be sure to backup you zips.dat file if you have the larger (more accurate) one because as it is, DFX 4 overwrites it with the old one.

    Question: The wireless manager skin is not showing anything, or information is incomplete or incorrect, how do I fix this?
    Solution: you have to be using the windows wireless manager. Many WiFi cards come with their own software. Just uninstall the software, and only install the drivers for your card. You can try using add/remove programs to remove the manufacturer provided drivers. If all else fails, remove the wireless software from the manufacturer, and the wireless device in device manager, then unplug it. Plug it in, and windows will then prompt you for the drivers. Insert the CD and windows will install the drivers to enable the device. If the CD auto runs, and tries to install their software, just cancel it.
    I wanted to add something to this. I was having trouble with this working because I had renamed the wireless connection to WiFi. The wireless connection must be named "Wireless Network Connection" without quotes.

    Start > Control Panel > Network Connections

    Make sure the wireless network device is named "Wireless Network Connection"

    This has been done globally throughout the skin now. As for the RDS info, that's a whole another story, and I haven't figured out a way to do that yet.

    This has been fixed, and the installer will not install the zips.dat if it already exists.

    Did you add the larger zips.dat to the installer as well?

    I only ask because the original places me about 4 towns over and I am sure it is similar for others. Midwest... what can you do?
