    Yes, LS 3.0:
    I like this skin. What is the commands in .ini file for MapMonkey? I try to change the folder of GPS app and .skin file but it doesn't work.

    WOW, looking at the ExecTBL.ini file for that skin and comparing it to LSX VOID.
    LSX ExecTBL.ini has 62 lines
    LSX Void ExecTBL.ini has 702 lines


    anyway, can you do me a favor and on the main menu of that skin, click the red and white arrow in the bottom left corner> click the "VER" button in the bottom right corner and tell me what it says on the top right of the screen.
    I think the version i have locally maybe older than the version thats avail for download. I may have to re download it myself, lol.

    To answer your question, that skin does not officially support mapmonkey in any way. But....

    This completely depends on if the version of the skin i have locally and if it is the same as the version you have.
    The version i have ExecTBL.ini file looks a little empty to me, but this just may be cuz the void ExecTBL is so huge now.


    [INSTRUCTIONS BELOW ONLY APPLY TO LSX1.x skin, not lsx void]

    Open ExecTBL.ini


    The section you want to edit are the lines above where you see this
    /##############################

    There should be a bunch of lines that start like this

    /"GPS",
    /"GPSFS",

    etc.


    the forward slash "/" at the beginning of any line means that line is disabled and RR will skip it as if it didn't exist.

    You want to edit the lines that do not have a forward slash.

    edit these lines
    Code:
    "GPS","LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS.skin;RUN;LSTOOLS\SB2.9\SKINbedder.exe;SKINbedder||RUN;LSTOOLS\SB2.9\iGuidance\runcheck.exe"
    Code:
    "EXIT2","RUN;LSTOOLS\SB2.9\iGuidance\kill.exe||EXIT"

    and replace them with these lines

    Code:
    "GPS","LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS.skin;RUN;C:\destinatorApps\Map Monkey\MapMonkey.exe;Map Monkey - [GPS]"
    Code:
    "EXIT2","EXIT"

    note: you will likely have to edit EXTERNAL_GPS.skin to make it specific to mapmonkey.
    None of the gps buttons will do anything for mapmonkey. There is a DESTINATOR.skin file but in the version i have locally, that file isnt finished and pretty much unusable.
    I would ask in the thread for that skin if anyone is using it with mapmonkey and if they could share there .skin file. But the above commands should work to get mapmonkey loaded and embedded in that skin.

    current release version of LSX VOID is 1.7 i think the folder says 1.5 but the about screen has the real ver number.
    Yesterday downloaded your skin v1.6 (from the first post in this thread), have it installed, and it shows ver 1.5A in about screen. And you say that the latest is 1.7. Have I missed something?

    Hi,

    I'm kind of a newb here.

    I just installed RR and LSX void and then lsxvoid1.6patch1.exe


    I've been playing with it for 3 days. I still dont see any gas finder. I reinstalled the skin to make sure I didnt screw something up. Do I have to do something to turn it on or what's up?

    when you first load the skin, the buttons on the top, AUDIO,VIDEO,NAVI etc, are all customizeable. Click and hold any of the buttons and a screen should pop up with a list of commands to choose from. GAS is found on the second screen in that list.

    naw, dont worry about it. You have the latest. 1.6patch was the last update i released. 1.7 was a release that got pushed back and is now 1.8 and it'll likely say 2.0 when the update comes.

    New Feature

    If my vote counts for anything.... You've never let us down before. Change the album art to anything you think we'd appreciate. Honestly, it seems to me that the people who work hard on making skins, make them for themselves. The rest of us just reap the rewards.

    wow, thanks! it's awesome.

    that brings up 2 questions.

    1) Did I somehow miss a user manual for RR? is one wrote? The RR help sucks and is mostly empty topics.

    2) Gasfinder works great. any chance GPS gas finder will be in anytime soon?

    i may not even have to remove it, but we'll see. So far i almost have things the way i want without removing it. The FM button in the audio player is gone or rather setup as a different command by default, its still custom so people can change it back if they want.

    1) Well the thing about RR is, there really isnt a help file because RR is so wide open, each skin is almost a different application on its own. I tend to think of RoadRunner the application as almost a platform. There are a list of objects, items, functions etc that are available and its up the skin designer to integrate all of the features in a nice user friendly way. The features mostly arent hardcoded either so if something cant be done stock, you can usually create a feature based other features or manipulate a stock feature to work differently. And if thats not enough, you can create external scipts/applications in whatever language you want and have them interact with RR.

    In the case of LSXVOID there is a ton of custom stuff going on that isnt available in other skins. The click hold/choose custom button feature (Created by Chuck and donated to LSXVOID) i believe is only available in 2 skins. Chucks and lsxvoid. There are also a bunch of autoIT scripts that i wrote that run along with RR and add additional features or options etc.

    I plan on creating some kind of help file or help system for this skin, still kind of thinking of the best way to do it. Mostly so people dont have to refer to this thread when they are lost or have a question about something. I want it to be interactive, like a mode that the skin would go into and for example, instead of loading the navigation screen when you click NAVI it would tell you how to setup your navigation options and any additional info you would need etc.


    2) I believe the native gas finder in RR does use GPS data if its available. Im not 100% sure on that though. I need to look at the thread for that addon as i know there are some things i need to update for that screen. I think it was planned to somehow send the address of the gas station to your Nav app to set a route to the station. I also want to change the layout so its only 3 gas stations visible on one screen and use multiple screens to page through them. Right now the text is just too small for me.

    Originally that screen did work with gps gas finder (the plugin) but native support is always better and just easier for everyone, so i likely wont go back to that version unless there is some super feature that really makes it worth the time to integrate it.
