I'm posting this in case it helps anyone...
I was having freeze/crash issues with DFX3.0. I had uninstalled all RR and the old DFX before upgrading, just because, and then installed a fresh copy of RR and DFX3.0
I traced my RR freezes back to an old problem that came back to bite me. If you are using the zips locator feature... and are having freeze problems... don't forget to delete the zipslocator.dll from the RR directory. Took me forever to figure out / remember.
ALSO, I am absolutely loving the HD Radio screen. I had been waiting for it and WOW! F-in Awesome
Including this post, there is just too much OT crap that is making this thread corupt already ...
And we are only on post #285!
Just as a data point, I installed RR and DFX3.0 from bare metal. There were only a few problems with apps but was able to search (VERY time consuming though..we need a better way) and get the overwhelming majority fixed.
This is kind of my quickie change log.
Flash Player: install_flash_player_active_x_to fix Flash problem.exe
Copy over “flash9e.ocx” to Macromedia\Flash to folder
Shockwave Player: Shockwave_Installer_Full_10.3.0.24.exe
VB 6.0 Run Time files
Installed RoadRunner manually v.12/23/2007
Digital FX 3.0
Blackberry Desktop Manager 4.2.2
Installed SpeedFan 4.3.3 for motherboard status
Removed Album info from menu.skin
Modified General.ini to make screen resolution stick 800x600
Modified colors in clockcolors.txt
TrafficCams International 1.2.7
Added Newest RRConfig.exe to fix blank Config screen
Added correct path to pics in ImageViewer_Config.ini in ImageViewer directory to get it working
Modified menu.skin and menu2.skin to remove Temps and relocated Vol%
For everything I have hardware for, it is working. Will be getting HDRadio, DVD Player and IGuidance running within the next couple weeks.
Not sure if this is where we want to post issues about 3.0 but here goes.
I found several issues that were a problem in the beta that are untouched in this release.
First, there is no cd-rip icon for the ripper.
next on the BROWSER the menu and url are still messed up.
Also I am finding that there is a lot of chopped OFF text...for example this is on the main screen while listening to net radio.
This is from my cell phone, and its my XM, I have a list called FAVES and then I have several broken down into catagories like DECADES.
Also wen you go from XM to net radio, XM is not muted.
The CD rip icon is as easy as going to the menuicons folder, and renaming CDRIP.png to CD RIPPER.png.getting the ripper to actually work is a different story! I gave up, and just embedded cdex in it's own skin.
Digital Speedometer mod for DigitalFX:
It currently has a digital speedometer and a Nissan logo. To change the Nissan logo, open Menu.skin and change Nissan2.png to whatever image you use. If you want a flash-based logo, use skin editor. Do the same thing in menu2.skin. When you are ready, put both of these files into your RoadRunner directory.
Tiger can you post a pic to see what it look like? Thanks
Any mods done to menu/menu2.skin must be done to the menu/menu2.skin files that are in the menu folder (four different sets of .skin files in this folder)within dfx3 as Kbreeden stated earlier, or it will change back after you change the menu layout.
Sure, I posted it in my above post. I'm not sure if the font size is correct since I haven't tried it in the car yet, so maybe someone can let me know if it works/w double digits.

need to overwrite the files here:
C:/Program Files/Road Runner/skins/DigitalFX 3.0/Menus/Compass
C:/Program Files/Road Runner/skins/DigitalFX 3.0/Menus/DigitalClock
C:/Program Files/Road Runner/skins/DigitalFX 3.0/Menus/Photo
C:/Program Files/Road Runner/skins/DigitalFX 3.0/Menus/SpinningLogo
Wouldn't it be easier/better to just replace the files in
C:/Program Files/Road Runner/skins/DigitalFX 3.0
so that it's easy to change if someone doesn't like it?
