    For reference the list of actions that happen when you click the GPS button the first time:

    load external_gps.skin >launch skinbedder> launch runcheck.exe

    when skinbedder.exe launches it runs startup.exe (found in the skinbedder dir)
    startup.exe is what actually launches iGuidance, and also launches runcheck.exe
    the purpose of runcheck is to loadup igcontrol, its soul purpose is to check if igcontrol is allready running.
    If its allready running it dose nothing and exits, its its not running it will launch it. Anytime igcontrol is launched, its launched from runcheck.exe
    without runcheck, you would get multiple copies of igcontrol running.
    It may sound like a lot, but these actions are executed pretty fast.
    I dont belive its RR thats not embeding properly, but skinbedder. Think of IG as a photo thats behind 2 picture frames.
    In my experience ive found the embed issue only happens to me on the desktop where i dont have the gps device and get the popup warning about no gps device detected. Which puts a pause in the string of events that happen and creates a timing issue. If you've been using skinbedder since it was created you likely are already famaily with this issue.

    also, FYI im no way locked into using skinbedder, basicly the only reason i use it is cuz its the only app that will remove the filemenu from IG, all the other apps that say they do this never ever worked for me or were bloated with extra features and clumbsy configs. If anyone knows of a better solution, Im all ears. In a perfect world RR would embed iGuidance and remove the title bar on its own, that way we wouldnt have to use a boatload of external tools to accomplish this task.

    the above is just a little insight for those that may or maynot know whats going on in the background when you launch GPS.
    These are the specs of my machine.

    1 x Logic Supply 3688 Mini-ITX Car System
    - Memory: 1GB PC2100/DDR266 RAM
    - Monitor: Xenarc 700TSV 7" TFT LCD Display VGA Touchscreen - Black
    - Power Supply: 90 Watt M1-ATX Intelligent Automotive Power Supply
    - Mainboard: EPIA SP13000 1.3Ghz
    - Hard Disk / Flash: 2.5" 40GB Fujitsu 5400rpm
    - CD / DVD Drive: Panasonic CW-8124-B Slotloading CD-RW / DVD 1 x USGlobalSat BU-353 Waterproof GPS Receiver

    I think it's fast enough to handle this but you never know. My receiver is always connected and like I said it works fine after the second try.

    This is embarassing because I've figured it out several times before, but I can't for the life of me remember what I have to do to get this running with Sirius instead of the default XM. I know I changed the line in the audioplayer.skin file but there must be something else...

    Does that ATT button do anything at the moment? I used it several times today and it didn't seem to do anything? What skin file is that button defined in so I can change it over to the right sendkey command for map orientation. I really miss that. =)

    I've been having a lot of fun with the skin so far. The only small things I've noticed:

    Full screen IG:
    When I first go full screen on IG and then try to zoom in, my IG screen disappears and I just see the skin graphics. It's pretty strange. I have to go to non-full screen mode and then back to full screen mode and it starts working with all the interface buttons. This only seems to happen the first time I go into full screen mode. In regular mode everything works fine.

    Video Player:
    The video player is slightly confusing to me. I noticed that it has a "clear playlist" button in the player. However, this button doesn't seem to actually work with any kind of video "playlist"? Because when I used it it cleared my audio playlist and added a very strange "goodbye" graphic squished into the album art location. The video player does work though! I noticed some strange things with picking videos, but I'll need to spend some more time with that before I can detail that out.

    Appreciate all your hard work with this skin and I really look forward to any work you'll be doing with IGMON!

    yeah, the clearlist button in the videoplayer isnt ment to be there,

    the att button should work, you have to have MapMasterVolume = MasterVolume in RRConfig.exe and not wave or any other line for it to work properly.

    as for the IGMON, i added a heading button in there just for you.

    when there is no playlist loaded for some reason RR will display any random image in place of the album art, sometimes i see images that are in the root of my c drive, havnt yet figured out a way to force it to not do that.

    there are buttons for xm and sirrus, clicking the Sirrus button should be all u need to do. On the main screen the sat button is XM. If you only have sirrus, you can edit the ExecTBL.ini file found in the skin dir and change all the XM commands to be sirrus. There are directions inside the file.

    BTW, if you need help skinning iGMon, let me know.
    cool, ive been looking for something along those lines. That should streamline a lot of stuff.
    Im actually done with the IGMON intergration, i just want to test it out on a real trip before i release it. The skinning and everything is really easy. What i may need to tap you for is little tid bits of scriptcode, you seem to allways step in with a nice snipet here and there

    Did you skin the OSK? Can we see a screenshot?

    I had a real hard time trying to fit all the buttons together.

    Thanks. I see there's some references to Microsoft Max. How do you like that program?
