The lag was really the main reason I stayed away from RR because it bothered me alot initially. Mediaengine and FP work alot smoother and respond quicker than RR. But once I loaded up this skin and played around, I was locked in. The Flash-based skins REALLY kill my performance, though.
Damn, i don't think i could live with that. Im glad i didnt go the via route, i almost got one but i knew those cpu's they used couldn't possibly have any muscle. Some of the via boards suport intel chips now so that may be the best of both worlds.
I read in one of the other threads that flash should be a lot faster now or in the near future so a flash skin may not be as slow for you as it is now. I think freedom may be using the new faster method for his skin.
But back to the 7secs delay, seriously i dont think i could live with that. Maybe time to upgrade.
Via is currently installed in the stang. p4 and xenarc await unjuiced in prime running condition. I think i am going to sell my via and put the p4 to use
ok, i figured a way to make the visopt screen (scripts) work no matter what dir RR is installed to, so this will be included in either an updated patch or next release.
also, started the task list for the next update on first post.
What about adding the Shuffle/Repeat button to be available in the customized buttons list? I'd like to have this on my main screen - it seems to be one of the few that isn't available.
I just added it to the ExecTBL.ini so itll be there on the next update. I would post the file right now but its in kind of in a under construction state.
Its really easy to add this though.
Tomorrow ill grab the release version of the ExecTBL (on another machine) and add those commands and post just that file.
LS have you seen this? Any way to incorporate this into your Skin? Also any update on the day skin?
im working on some setup/option screens for the skin right now.
Does anyone have any things that they change on a simi regular basis or things they would like to see that would fit under the "General Options" catagory?
So far i have
SETUP--runs and embeds RRConfig.exe
UPDATE CHECK-- runs rrupdate.exe
SKIN BROWSER-- change skin
DAY-NIGHT SKIN-- switches to day or night skin
RESTART RR-- exits Road Runner, waits 5secs then loads back up
CLOSE WINAMP-- closes winamp, also starts if winamp isnt loaded
I got room for a few more i would like to through under this catagory.
any ideas or something you want to see?
There will be other categories also, like Skin Options etc
I want to do a full blown RRConfig type thing all from inside the skin, and it is possible but a little daunting.
