    i like the idea of stream ripper. even better if internet radio was made to work like a "DVR" where you could just pause, rewind and whatever all seamlessly. there are a lot of times where i miss a news bit or a comedy line and i just want to hit 'rewind' for a few seconds....

    I installed it earlier today but I'm struggling to get this skins working properly.
    The program ran after installation, but not on fullscreen. I changed the settings in rrconfig, but that didn't affect anything. After searching I found a post were the person changed ShowWidth in the skins' general.ini and that also worked for me with the standard carwings skin.

    Next I installed the DigitalFX skin, but when I tried to start Riderunner I got an error 'does not contain a valid skin'. Again I started my search and learned that other skins also gave this error for some people, so I tried to start RR with the carwings skin again, which didn't work.

    So I was pretty sure something went wrong during the installation of the DigitalFX skin.
    Since this skin has a seperate folder, I reinstalled RR and I was able to start the program with the DigitalFX skin.

    Again, my resolution was not what it should be, so I did the trick I learned before.
    Only, this skin looks like a mess when I do that.


    Could someone share the proper way to configure this please?
    I searched for 6 hours today but got nowhere.

    Thanks for your time
    It is not clear (to me) what your problem is, if you want the skin to cover the whole screen on your computer, set the resolution in the skin (general.ini) to the same resolution as your computer monitor.

    if the skin 800x600 or 800x408 and your monitor resolution is higher, the skin will pop-up towards to upper left corner but will not cover the whole screen..so..what is your problem exactly?

    How do you change the color of the font on the streets and trips skin, cause they look like they
    only stay black and do not change to the color of the rest of the screens.
    (I do not know much about this skinning stuff but it looks like they need to be transparent??)



    Still cannot to get streets & trips to embed right....I have to open it outside of RR. then it will go, fit itself in to the pane.


    .....never mind, I found the answer to both problems

    I have not seen a scope to declare feature creep. I think the whole project has been feature creep and it is great!

    I love this skin downloaded 4.0 about a week ago and have been playing around with it, but after looking at the Exectbl.ini file, I realize that my main menu only shows a subset of the menu buttons listed in this ini file. I saw support for Movie Times/Listing etc, but my main menu only lists the following buttons:

    Music-----------------Guages Stats
    DVD------------------GPS
    Weather--------------Users
    Video-----------------Utilities

    When I hit Menu again, I get the following buttons and Camera is repeated:

    Pictures----------------Camera
    Camera----------------Theme
    Task Man--------------Rescan
    Wireless---------------Settings

    I'm not sure what is going on and if this is normal behavior but since I'm new to all this I'm kinda confused why buttons that are listed in the Exectbl.ini file wouldn't show up on the menu.

    As you can see in the 2 screenshouts, the layout is messed up and stretched when I change resolution in general.ini

    I marked the anomalities in red, the play button etc

    The play buttons etc are done by a custom font, which by the look of things doesn't like being resized.

    To get them in the right place you might have to edit the .skin files a change the position of those labels so they work better on your screen.

    As for the missing parts of the numbers, my guess is there is something (probably a slider) that when resized has resized a bit bigger than it needs to and therefore is covering the labels.

    mace04, press and hold one of the buttons and if you hold it long enough, it will take you to a new page of buttons you can choose from and it will change that to the new button.
