just updateing this thread incase anyone is having problems with this skin and the latest version of RR.
If you do not have the playfile.exe file (see first post) in your root C:\ drive, RR will fail to recognize mouse input after it tries to run the said file and fails to find it.
The file is used for click sound support, and previous didnt need to be present for things to work. But now is required. Next release will not have this issue
dual audio player mode added,zip file attatched at bottom of post
unzip files to LS3beta4 skin folder
to access the alternate audio player, click the time while in the audio player to cycle,

Ok, here is LS3.0 beta3
a quick run down on setup and changes:
Its assumed that you have RR installed in the default path of C:\Program Files\Road Runner
pretty much all menus (minus options menu) are where i want them to be.
did some clean up in the audio player, no invisible buttons
reorder the main menu a little
added support for motherboard monitor, accessed from the options menu
Options menu will likely have some changes done to it in the future, with the added support for MBM, and also a version button, it's getting crowded
finished the games menu, this menu is setup to be used with a N64 emulator but you can change it to load whatever game you want. Project 64 can be found here http://www.pj64.net/ and if you do a search on this forum you'll find links to roms. Also configure Project 64 options>configure graphics plugin...>Windowed Resolution 512x384 or lower
Install to the default dir and it should work, if not you'll have to edit in RRSkin editor to the correct path.
The text on the buttons in the game screen are RR labels so you can edit it without changing the graphics.
The pics button in the options screen is pointed to Zorros PicViewer.net which can be found on his PhoCo download page. Install PicViewer to C:\Program Files\Road Runner\PicViewer.NET
GPS setup, if you havent gotten it working yet or this is your first install.
GPS points to skinbedder, and you will need to have it installed in this path C:\Program Files\Road Runner\SKINbedder_v2.99999
WEB BROWSER embeds firefox, if you dont have it go get it, if you dont want it, use IE. I think you just change it in RR config
Weather, DO A SEARCH FOR HOW TO SET IT UP
as with previous versions you will need to copy and past this code in "ExecTBL.ini"
THe skin uses 2 main menus, one with play buttons at the bottom and one without play buttons. Which one shows up depends on if you have music playing or not. No music you get the menu without the play buttons, etc.
IF YOU DONOT COPY THE TEXT BELOW INTO ExecTBL.ini YOU WILL NOT HAVE ACCESS TO THE MAIN MENU
for those who have not mastered the copy and past functions, i have provided the file pre copy and pasted for you. wipe your mouth after the download. HERE
everything else should be obvious, but if it isnt , dont hesitate to ask.
Oh, almost forgot
New Car logo's you will need are found here
have fun, i really like how these turned out.
DiNASTY put a lot of work into these
Also, PSD files will be released (likely after im done with all 3 versions of the skin)
credit goes to Zots for the volume and track sliders
credit goes to evolvetech for hosting the skin
credit goes to DiNASTY for use of his flash car logos and everyone else whos offered help in someway, THANKS!
post any bugs you may find or any other issues.
Ill be updating the skin on a regular basis untill im 100% happy with it and all bugs ironed out.
audio player 100%
some minor tweaking may happen here
The blue circle with "i" on the top right is the internet connection status icon, its only shown when you have a connection.
The right turn icon on the top left takes you the GPS/audio screen where the GPS embeds into the the area where the playlist is at
gps 100% IG, no MM
there will be a matching skinbedder skin to go with this, the skinbedder status is 0%
This screen may change a lot, mostly the ripped icons, if i have time to make my own ill do that.
not sure about phoco, ill finish the screen for u guys but i dont think im going to use it anymore. :(
VIDEO/DVD 100% may tweak a little to make the playbuttons match the rest of the skins play buttons, these are the old LS2.0 buttons
the album art being shown above the visual is a bug, a nice one i may add.
If you click the vis area the album art goes back behind where its supposed to be, but comes right back when you click the next/previous track buttons :)
Hey guino: Is there a way to make it allways stay on top?
due to the size and amout of data on the 5day view, i may not skin that screen. There really isnt a way to put all that info onscreen and still make it easy to read. I may split the 5 day up into a screen for each day if i have the time.
