    Speaking of which...

    I currently have it set up to where clicking on the word ALBUM switches the style of the menus (basically what's displayed in the center) between the album art and the playlist. To get this to work, I have to execute the RELOADSKIN command each time -- is there an easier way to do this without reloading the entire skin, and without just running a flash object that does the same thing (running a flash clock takes up ~ 20% more CPU)?

    It's something to do with the new version of Road Runner.

    Have tried installing on various machines from XP SP3 to even Vista with similar results. Currently rebuilding the carPC again with fresh install.

    Problem 1 (same as post 2537 in this thread)
    Using FreeFone - it pops up over RR and does not embed. Looking at the skin file it looks fine. Anyone else using FF with the latest RR and DFX 4?
    FF places itself in the correct place on the screen and without any MS window dressing, just RR is minimized.

    Problem 2
    I am unable to get the 1 day or 5 day weather to show. I have changed the location on the first tab to my location, but none of the default locations or mine display the 1 or 5 day weather. The Radar, Temp and Sat views all work fine. I know I'm not the only one with this problem as I've been pm'd to see if it is resolved. Everything is a fresh install of latest stuff.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Internet connectvity is good. movie Theater and browser plugin all work fine.

    One other thing I've not found is how to enable is the spectrum analyser visual when on the main menu as shown in the screenshots at the top of this thread. The Visual works fine in the "Music" screen.

    I have the same issue with Freefone not embedding properly. Worked before DFX4. I've asked this question and had no response. If you figure it out please let me know. I miss my freefone.

    Weather

    The weather does not work as the request sent to the website is missing required parameters.
    The problem is I don't know what should be in the request. I'm using Wireshark to watch the request and response going to and from the Internet.
    Anyone know what a "good" weather request should look like?

    Thanks

    Which version of RoadRunner are you using?

    It has to be a very at least an '08 version for the weather to work.

    Been searching for this one for a while... and I knew the fix for v2.0... but it seems the code has been removed for v4.0

    Question: Where is the code to increase the font size of the digital clock on the main screen?

    Since I'm using a Ford logo (more wide than tall), I have a lot of room to spare and would love the clock to be larger.

    In previous versions this was in the menu.skin files and literally called out "Time" and "Date" indicators... but I don't see them anymore.

    Any help?

    Ok I have searched the forums.. but chances are Im not using the right keyword. I want to change the lower menu bottons order. I got it to do what I want with the editor but the font that shows the menu or the other icons are still the same. I want to switch the locations of the vol+/Vol- with menu and the circle power icon. I find it alil awkward reaching to the far right to change the vol, cause I have a 10.4". Any suggestions on where this info is located would be great! I even triied to open menu.skin in notepad and change the font numbers around on the B01-B07 to see if that would work but no luck. Thanks guys.

    I had this same problem last night. The menus folder has been removed in Digitalfx 4.0. You now make the changes in the .txt file for the appropriate menu. For example, if you want to change the clock size in the stationary logo skin, make the changes in the Menu-2DLogo.txt file. The other files are: Menu-3DLogo.txt, Menu-Compass.txt, Menu-Photo.txt, & Menu-Playlist.txt. Hope that helps!

    This was very helpful, Thank you!
    I have been meaning to ask or search but just haven't gotten to it so kudos to the person that did.

    I think this should be added to the help file, wiki, FAQ or something like that.
