    So the installer should point to
    C:\Program Files\Road Runner\

    Your copy of RR can be installed anywhere u like, but the skin must be installed into RR in the proper dir, which is RRs root folder.

    So when everything is done you should have a folder in the root of your RR install named "LSTOOLS" and the actual skin should be located in \Road Runner\skins\LSX VOID 3.0.
    Ok, I'll uninstall and re-install in the root dir and let you know later this evening.

    Thanks!

    RSX is correct. It is an app that allows control of the dsatx through a gui instead of using hyperterminal.

    I'm sure we all know what a dsatx is (intelligent 220w power supply). It has many user set-able options, but the .swf app is a nice way to see and adjust all the options of the power supply.

    And I'll be "user number two" that would like to see it included as I use a dsatx with brainstem as well.

    If you could include it in the skin, that would be great!

    Cheers

    sounds pretty cool, i had no idea what dsatx was since i dont actually have a carputer. When i did though i had an opus psu and i suspect that it was part of the reason my original carputer died. So i likely wont be getting another one. This dsatx sounds pretty cool though, so when i do get a new carpc ill def look at getting one of these.

    Im working on an update right now, dealing with some timer issues holding it up so i cant promise ill add the dsatx in this update, but i can add it as its own update. But we'll see, what i can do if this timer crap dont drive me crazy.

    actually, if TeamRSX would post his modified .skin file for the dsatx and the swf file ( plus any other needed files ), i can add it right now and include it in the update. Since im assuming the screen is mostly for setting and changing options on the power supply and not a screen that you would constantly have up, i can add it directly to the options screen instead of having to shuffle button commands around to integrate it into the dynamic buttons.

    DSATX info:

    http://store.mp3car.com/Mp3Car_DSATX_p/pwr-023.htm

    And;

    http://mpegbox.com/products.html

    Zootjeff makes them and keeps forums at mpegbox. And he actively supports it both here and at mpeg box. Seems like a great guy.

    I've been running one for about a year and a half on my p4 system, love it. Works without a hitch, everytime. Never had a dead battery, survives crank, works in -30 C weather, etc. I just can't say enough good things about it.....

    Adjusting the settings through hyperterminal was a bit of a pain though until the GUI project started.

    Highky recommended purchase for any carputer.

    Littel pricey compared to some of the cheaper PS's out there, but as far as I'm concerned you get your money's worth.

    "You get what you pay for" defineatley holds true here. You pay a bit more but get a great dependable product and support to boot!

    Cheers

    I can't help with the skin file, but here's the thread with the .swf file in .rar and teamrsx's posts about getting it to work:

    The problem i see is your Flash file is infact overlapping the bottom volume controls. Its set to be 800x640 and nothing should be set that big in the skin as the skin itself is only 800x480 and all edits should be done with that in mind. When you change the skin res to 800x600 via options everything scales relative to the original.

    change your F line to look like this

    F,0,42,800,394,"dsatx.swf"

    that should fix ur overlap and also size it to properly fill the correct area.
    Thanks for your help LS. After i changed the F line as you suggested everything is perfect.

    Appreciate your help.

    LS,

    I have attached a .rar for all the files for dsatx gui application.

    Please note you will need a serial to tcp/ip software converter to connect to brainstem comm port on the DSATX. Most ppl use comfoolery, but seems its hard to find.

    Included is the following:

    dsatx.swf - I think its the most current app.
    dsatx.skin - skin file i used which works great
    cf.au3 - autoit script that minimizes comfoolery at launch

    Here is the URL to the original threat for this software provided by member at_b

    thats what i kind of figured. Ill post something in the installer thread, not sure how good it will do though as neither RR or the Installer have been updated in months.
    Will add a note on the first page about it though also.

    cool.

    I dont have the hardware so im not sure if even need to bother with the converter. Its kind of odd though the converter is online, so for this all to work you also have to have an online connection?

    either way, im gonna pass on doing it tonite, ive been screwing with the timer **** all day and need a break. I prob need to read through that thread though and know of any issues etc before i add it in as default. Dont want to rush it as it seems it requires a few things.

    so ill post the update in a bit and work on the dsatx update as a separate update for those that have the hardware.
