Did you ever find out why peoples volume was auto muting. I just ripped my carpc out and wipped everything clean, brand new install of everything (including OS) and when I am running your skin (2.02) if I hit volume + or - my master volume goes straight to nothing. I searched through the old skin thread (13,000+ posts) and didn't find anything conclusive. If you or anyone has a good idea how to fix this please let me know!
Also I went to the link you had for rage art and when I installed it I got rage art 2 free and it has issues loading when I use it. It loads to the splash screen of the program but when it tries to embed it breaks.
P.S. New skin kicks ***! I was waiting for you to release this so I could revamp my carpc. Just so happed I ended up with a corrupt windows file 2 days after your release. Good timing!:lol:
Ok, figured out the volume issues. I did not have the volume mapped to Master in RRconfig under music settings. I'm not sure why that isn't set to that by default?
Another issue I found is that my mixer does not work? Is there a plug in for this? I never had it working with LSX Void either .....
Also, I want my visual to start up when RR does. I'm guessing this is a Winamp setting but I can't seem to find it for the life of me. Also, how do I get the visualizations to stop being random. I want it to be fixed on the vis I pick but again, i think this is a winamp setting that I just can't find?
Volume and Mixer problems are pure RR issues with your sound card. You may want to post about it in the open forum. There isnt anything i could do inside of the skin that would break or fix anything for the mixer. Also in general the mixer in RR works a little odd. But i can assure you the mixer in the skin is the way it should be.

To start the visuals when RR starts, Open RRConfig.exe and under "Start Command to execute:" add VISU
you can do this. You wont be able to have a click and hold function on that button though.

There are 5 free buttons that were ment to be used for embeded apps with inskin setup, but you can easily modify one of them to run a command instead of an app.
Find where these lines are in the file. They start on line 146.
Pick one of them to modify, and also note they will show up in the custom command list with an offset to the numbers, so AP50 shows as FREE51 and so on.
Change where it says "CUSTOMMAPP2" to your new command.
So whatever code you are using to load your CD bat files put it here.
on line 173 and on lines 227-231 you will see references to FREE51 (aka AP50), These are the labels, change one them to what you want the button to show as.
If you have any problems editing it, just let me know what the button code is you want to execute and send me your ExecTBL.ini file and ill set it up.
Also, FYI, the menu that shows when you click the TIME in the top left corner is also custom like the other buttons. So you could stick it in there if you want and have access to the CD on any screen in the skin.
I havnt used the load CD bat scripts from CDR but from what i read i though that it was all automatic and didnt require a button, only for you to stick the CD in the drive?
Also, just to make sure you know its avail, from your screen shot it shows you are using the lite version of the audio player, the default one is accessed by click hold audio button on the main menu, on the first screen choose AUDIO. On page 3 AUDIO old is the screen you are currently using.
Yeah, I know the other version is available I just liked this one better, =). I will try this today and let you know how it works. It does autoload the CD/playlist, however, when I change my playlist to listen to something else later I might want to come back to the CD... Also, I might want to go back to the playlist that I was listening to prior to inserting the CD after putting in the CD (maybe I just want to put it in to RIP it or something)...
well it's true that RR uses the true/false statement as standard, I tried to change it to true instead of 1 but that didn't help... on the other hand it switches to the ig when giving instructions and then back again later... so it seems to work with the numerical values, atleast on that part!

do you have your playlist path saved inside of your music path? It should be if not.
The way it works. Load Music from your library, click and hold the left arrow preset button. Choose a number to save the slot. Mix and repeat till all 5 slots are saved. They you can cycle between them.
After you save all the presets, click on the P List button on the right side of the screen, next to LATEST. Do you see Preset1-5 in the list? If you dont there is a config issue in your RR.ini (in that case just send me your rr.ini)
Also, make sure you have .m3u as a file type for music in RRConfig.exe. While you are in there, might as well make sure you have .exe as a file type too. Not related to this feature but youll need it for other features in teh skin.
My bad I shouldn't have said Mixer, I meant Equalizer. I can change the bands on the equalizer by hand but the preset buttons (i.e. Rock, Pop, Rap, R&B, Jazz) don't do anything when I press them.

you have to setup the presets yourself.

So I got the IG autosw problem fixed by reinstalling RR and your skin. Then come to find out whenever I access the keyboard I get this mess... What's going on here?? It happens when editing the buttons names as well as when using the keyboard in the built in web-browser... BTW, I figured out the playlist code, it's quite simpler than I thought...
