    2) what version of winamp are you running with RR? When you click Play Selected, it should do exactly that. Play the selected item in the list and all sub directories of that item.

    3)There are some bugs with visuals right now in RR. The way its supposed to work is if you turn the visuals on, leave the screen and come back to the same screen the visuals should still be there. You shouldnt have to do anything. Hopefully this will be fixed in a later RR release. As for turning the visuals on by default.
    Open RR.ini and add or edit this line
    startcommand=VISU

    That will start the visuals everytime RR first loads.
    I'm using Winamp v5.5, does Play Selected not work with this version? Should I downgrade to v5.13?

    Also, i read somehwhere in this forum that using remote access software, in my case I use Radmin3, why does RR hang when trying to load iList screens? I read it somewhere in this LONG thread but can't seem to find that post.

    Couple question for ya. How do I change the level of transparency of the background image. I want the skin to be 100% transparent except for buttons. How do I create a button that returns me to the menu.skin? And how do I program the 5 audio presets?

    And a couple requests for future consideration. Since I travel so much I've found multiple weather and traffic cities a godsend. Have you considered adding four or five programmable buttons across the top of these screens for users to input their favorite cities like in the Chucks, DFX and Shock skins?

    You can not change the level of transparency, the skin will never be 100% transparent.

    Every screen has a back button that should take you to the previous screen, which most of the time IS the main menu. Which screen do you want to add this button to? There are very few screens that are multi levels deep.

    as for the weather. Yeah, ive thought about it a few times. I actually have the code for it too for a long time. Its just been pretty low on the priority list. I try to stay away from the weather screens as there are a ton of labels. Ill try to move it up the list.

    Yes you should downgrade to 5.13 you can find it at oldversion.com
    There are a lot of little things that dont work right with RR and any version of winamp 5 that is newer than 5.13

    using remote access software with RR and ilist dont mix for the same reason you cant play 3D games under a remote session, usually DirectX and hardware acceleration are turned off while using the remote. This kind of sucks though as it pretty much makes using remote desktop software to connect to the carputer useless with RR. There needs to be some code put in place that if there are any directX errors that RR will automatically just revert to the old list type instead of hanging.

    I use winamp 5.5 and it works perfectly fine so I don't think that is the problem. Milkdrop 2 is sick!

    OK, winamp 5.13 installed. I'll give it a go

    Is there an "onexit" command to execute batch files upon RR closing? I want to added script to check for winamp and if open, end the task. Thanks again

    Edit:
    Additionally, How do you get Milkdrop vis to be transparent? Every time I set to transparent and then I go back to config it un-selects itself... AVS vis works fine transparent. Thanks again! (I'm using Winamp 5.13 now)

Its just kind of a by product of other features that so happen to allow you to do it when they are used together. The best way to do it would be with a single click but what goes on behind that single click could be a number of things as not everyone will want it to work a certain way. Basicly what you really want is the ratings feature, but with custom named playlist instead of 1-5. The problem is there really isnt an easy way to know what playlist you want to add a specific track to unless they are hard coded for a specific list of playlist names OR by some method that would let the skin know which playlist you want to add to, which will always require some kind of input from you as to which one. If the names have to be specific, those are the issues that need to be solved. If the names of the playlist dont have to be specific then things get a lot easier and what you end up with is the ratings feature So Ill think about it and try to come up with a way to do it with a single click.
    Yeah, I am basically looking for the ratings feature with the ability of having more than just 5 playlists. Maybe 10 playlists and also the ability of being able to rename the buttons to things such as Hip Hop, Rap, R&B, Latin and so on. In the last release of LS Void I was using the ratings feature and just kept in mind that 5 stars = Hip Hop, 4 = R&B 3 = Latin and so on. 5 presets was not enough and I thought it would be a lot easier if the buttons had the labels of the playlist on them rather than me having to memorize them.

    Is anyone else interested in something like this?

    you do know that weather is now based on your current gps position right? i added this with the localdatacapture option. Unless you wanted to know what the weather is like in one city while you're in another this would serve no purpose.

    This is great idea... same situation with travelling difeerent places, weather update is constantly require modifying rr.ini. Can you please provide details how you did it..

    Enjoying the LSX v3.2

    there's nothing that needs to be modified. its a part of the source and was added months ago. If you have a valid gps connection and you're in the united states road runner will take ur current coordinates and search zips.dat for your current city and state. It sends that information to weather.com and returns the weather data for where you are. The only reason rr reads from the weather in rr.ini is:

    - You have no gps connection
    - You use the HOMEWEATHER command which ONLY reads from rr.ini and not gps
    - You have no zips.dat file installed in road runners folder.

    If I recall correctly, rr doesn't support transparency in anything besides AVS. Or maybe it's only AVS that supports transparency. Don't exactly remember right now.

    That's the long and short of it.................


    Great release LS, 3.2 is a well thought out piece of kit!

    Running stable and steady for three days now with nary a glitch (once I figured out what I was messing up!). Granted, I'm not using the skin to it's fullest capacity yet, but pretty close. I just spent the last 3 days sorting my music files to get them to the point where the skin can make the best use of them.

    I'm going to pull the Mputer out of the car tonight and do a "fresh" install from the ground up..............

    Wish me luck!

    Cheers
