    I thought this was kinda weird.

    Code:
    "MyApp20","Load;$GpsScreen$;$GPSNAME$;$GPSPATH$;$GPSNAME$||ACTIVATE;iGuidance||SENDKEY;"{p}{p}"
    What is the SENDKEY;"{p}{p}" for exactly?

    I removed it with seemingly no ill effects. I also tried to simply press p+p while in iGuidance but no effect. Is this for another external GPS app?

    im just curious because i figured the digitalfx dimmer was just an on-the-spot change and that it had no time setting.

    If that's wrong... I'll be a happy man!
    It only flickers on iLists, which leads me to believe that it's hardware, drivers or directx.

    it is mentioned in the docmentation for dimmer ,that it may flicker in some cases over ilists and app's , and it maybe down to a low powered or quality machine.

    That's a cop out answer if I've ever heard one.

    If you are using dimmer feature in XP with RR the inlaye or default video is all black and does not display either. Mitch is aware.

    That is actually the correct answer. I worked with Mitch when he was implementing this. On a machine with a "lesser" graphics card, you will see a flicker. (It does this on my laptop, but not on my Desktop system with the same EXACT install mirrored) It is not a problem with Road Runner, but in fact a problem with GDI and the way windows handles it. iLists and the dimmer overlay are both GDI, and they are fighting each other. Think of playing video on your system, and sometimes it bleeds through other windows, or you get a ghosting effect. Same thing if you try to screen capture a video, you cant with any standard screen capture program, as it is a "layer" of sorts. Bottom line is it is the way windows itself draws the video, as well as the GDI overlays that is the problem.

    ODB II Coming in the next release finally!!!!!

    It has been a long time coming, and many MANY thanks go out to Mezz64 for creating the RR plugin.

    I purchased a ELM 327 on ebay for around $25 shipped, so the hardware is certainly inexpensive! No car to test it on as of yet

    Here are a couple screen shots, and the plugin is functioning, as if it were not, all the fields would be empty, instead of containing 0's ect.

    I am working on flash gauges that will show Speed, RPM and Coolant temperature, that will match the gauges on the "Gauges" skin that uses GPS to display information.

    While trying to use latest RR, It changes from 32bit(color quality) to 8bit, when I exit out out of RR it switches back to 32bit. Did I forget to do something?

    EDIT: Never mind I found it.
    If you cant DODGE em, RAM em.
