    Oh my GOSH!

    i am foolish. my post that i put down i thought was a PM to you JohnWPB, i became was hurt when you didnt respond to it. ha-ha, and as i have been going over the thread, i all of a sudden saw my post ha-ha. i have not checked the thread in a few days. thanks for the tip TimmyM, i actualy discovered that last night around 2 am, but i know for sure know that it would work.
    and to JohnWPB: m4a is not DRM'ed, i used myFairTunes to undrm all my music. aac does sound drastically better than mp3 (in my opinion, which i hope doesn start a war about audio quality). Winamp 5 also plays more file types and i want that option open to me if i were to somehow come across a new one like aac++ (amazing codec!)
    and my thoughts on the skin. Amazing skin my friends thought it would be to dark during the day, so we hooked up my laptop to their system and drove around. looks good during day and amazing at night. great work. The only thing i think that could be improved is the ever changing positions of the volume and play/pause butons. sometimes they move over 1 spot or more than that and can be a bit frusting if you just blindly go for where you remember it was.
    the "Patch" works, the thing that triped me up was after "installing" it, you said go to the guys site for iQWERTY and follow his directions for using that. then use ur skin. well you dont follow his instructions you dont apply his patch, just run the IQWERTY program. if you try to patch it says something lie "crc check error", because i applied you patch. once i figured that out all was well. small bug might be it takes .3 sec for IQWERTY to load over the regular than another .2 for your skin to replace it, but that doesnt bother me, i have to be looking for it to notice. Great skin keep up the good work. my GPS will be ariving in a day so will be testing out actual functionality soon.
    Thanks for the warm welcome to the forum. I have been around for a bit (1 month) but decided to register so i can host some files for Webmaster (the guy whos made the RR installer) Till later.

    SangreDeThor, Glad is all working pretty well for you now. Sorry I didn't respond to your "PM"

    As far as the iGuidance patch, it will work dirrectly with my iGuidance patch that I have on the download site, as it is a patched version. As far as the delay in loading the keyboard patch, you can actually have that program run when you start the computer, and it just sits in the system tray looking for the iG keyboard to appear to replace it.

    The skin does look it's best at night for sure. Daytime is pretty tuff on just about any skin. The default "Brushed Metal Skin" for me is very hard to see anything but the lettering and such during direct sunlight, as it is mostly black. The blue devil skin is pretty dark as far as colors go, but there HAS to be a major contrast between the lettering / icons and the buttons and background image for it to be functional.

    I have been putting some though and trying to come up with a better way of having the buttons n the same place as you and a couple others have mentioned. It is just difficult to come up with just ONE standard place, as many of the screen change so drasticly, depending on what is required for them. I am working on minimizing the "button shifting locations", and should be much better in a future update here soon.

    Hi John,

    While looking into my GPS skin issue I saw that it was calling the External_GPS.skin file which had the IG jpgs not the FreeDrive. When I was working on this inoticed the IGuidance.skin file was named IGiudance.skin. Not that it matters since RR is most likely using the External_GPS.skin for IG users anyways but just a heads up.

    JohnWPB: yea i know i have the IQWERTY run at startup and it does do its job, i was just wondering if anyone else is experiencing that. i have a P3 900 Mhz, so that could be why. standardized locations would be a big step i think.
    Proximo's CF is an example where everywhere you go the pause play volume etc are all in the same spot, if you need a picutre of what i was thinking. no idea i am bad at designing but good at coding . keep up the good work

    So new issue. the newest version of IG 10-8-06 i updated and that of course overwrote your patch, so iQWERTY doesnt work, should i just replace the exe with your old patch or are you going to releae a new one? if i am unclear i can clarify. Thanks

    I'm a little unclear actually sangre, did you mean you installed the new RR 10-8-06 or is there a new patch for the IG that happens to have the same date. I'm just about to sneakernet the new RR to the car but I don't want to lose the IG patch that makes IG3 match the blue devil skin. I haven't set up the iGQWERTY yet so that's not an issue yet.

    iGQwerty keyboard with the BLue Devil skin

    Well, I don't quite understand what you mean either. Once you are using the iGuidanceUMPC.exe from the download site in the first thread, you will get the iGuidance to match the Blue Devil skin. That .exe has been patched to work with the LostReceptions iGQwerty keyboard replacement.

    Sorry, just read back and saw your post.....

    Yea, that was a "Left over" from the original design. In the next release, the "extra" skin will be named iGuidance_WIDE.skin. This is a secondary skin for use with iGuidance that has just the single row of buttons at the bottom of the screen. This gives you a choice of which design you want to use.

    To use "bottom buttons" version instead of the version with buttons on both sides of the screen:
    1) Rename or delete the external_GPS.skin
    2) Then rename the iGuidanceWIDE.skin to external_GPS.skin

    Ok, The PSD for the Main Menu's is now available...
    on the Download site in the first post. I have tried to make them as organized and easy to follow as possible. I have also included the font that I used with the PSD as well. Unfortunately, the text on the buttons has been "Rosterized" so the drop shadows could be added. Just move the text lables around wherever you want, and if you need a new lable, just type it out with the font included. Both of the menu's are in the same PSD.

    I have noticed that many people create an entire skin in a single PSD. I actually created individual PSD's for each and every screen in the Blue Devil skin. It is WAY to large to upload all 50 PSD's somewhere, so if there is a certain item, button, bar, button on one of the skins that you need, just PM me and I will get it to you as quick as possible.

    Okay sorry about confusion.

    I am confused myself right now. The I completley thought that the iGUMPC patch some how changed RR.exe (what it was called before i updated to 10-8-06) but now going over the readme for that it didnt, just the iGUMPC.exe
    therefore i have no idea what iQWERTY no longer works. 2 (or so) days ago i updated to the newest version of RR, using the updater program, it updated fine and worked. now when i run the GPS it still has the blue devil skin and still looks amazing but the iQWERTY is not switching to the qwerty keyboard like it doesnt realize that the OSKD (On screen Key display?) is running. So could updating RR have caused this or is it just me? Hope that is more clear.

    EDIT *Okay i was completly wrong again. Ignore what is above. I wasnt going to the correct menu, forgot that the IQWERTY doesnt replace all the OSK, only a few, like if i am trying to edit the name of a favorite it the ABC one, but if i enter a destination it is QWERTY, and one know why?* /EDIT

    Also, JohnWPB if you need somewhere to host your PSD i can do it for you, i run a FTP server, currently i am mirroring the RR installers, and can easily add you to my server so you can upload and link if you would like.
