Please consult the help file that was installed in the skin before asking questions in the thread. It is a very in-debth guide on how to use the skin, alter settings, and hidden features and functions. The help file is located in ~\RideRunner\Skins\DFX5\HelperFIles\. It can also be accessed right from the start menu in the DFX folder Tree.
FAQ (Frequently asked Questions) and solutions:
How do you keep DFX from beeping every time I push a button?
In the DFX skin folder, open the exectbl.ini and find these lines: (Line #34)
/---------------- Skin Sounds -----------------------------------------------------------
Simply put a / in front of the line to comment it out, like this:
save the file, and no more beeps when buttons are pressed.
How do I get the voice recognition to work?
Open the KeyTbl.ini file in the main RideRunner folder in notepad. Put this line in that file:
This will set the ` key (The key to the left of the number 1 on the keyboard, and above the TAB key)
When you press that key, the system will start to listen.
To use a button to activate the voice, you can use any hotkey program, Girder, iBus interface, JoyCon connector, serial Connectors, a mouse, and tons of other ways to fire the RRVCON command.
Note: You also have to have SAPI5 installed on your system, and train your voice profile to recognize your voice. There is tons of documentation on the web on how to do this.
I donated for the DFX5 splash screen patch, and can not download it.
MP3Car staff is looking into any trying to fix any issues. The server is also a bit buys, as over 8 gigs has been downloaded since 7am this morning.
In the mean time, try using Fire Fox if you can, as the problem, till it is fixed, appears to be with Internet Explorer.
NOTE: After donating, the purchase is recorded, and you can download as many times as you like. Only one patch is needed for all the machines that you have the skin installed on

Press and HOLD either the "National Forecast" or "Temperature Map" to load the maps from the Internet. The + symbol seen on any button through out the skin means it has a second function when pressed and held.
