    Everything seems to be working alright except for when I try and embed an application in one of the extra buttons. I have Project 64 working. I mean your skin will open the program, but the skin will say "Click and Hold Set-up Button To Pick Application To Embed" whenever I launch the program from LSX Void. No matter how many times I complete the steps, it does the same thing. I just figured it's a bug I can deal with. Not like I'll be playing the emulation too often.
    THe Note Sync program doesn't work in the skin either. I have the program in the default folder it installs from as instructed. When I click on the icons inside your skin, I get a bit of movement in the task bar area by the clock but nothng more. I can run the application just fine outside of RR though.
    When I said Demo, I meant I was demo'n them for/to myself. I've installed them both and just trying to see what I can get a handle on the best.
    Again Thank You for the response and the hard work you've obviously put into your skin.

    Are you putting in the correct window name? Sounds like this is whats missing, if its launching the app but not embedding it. There is a demo video of this feature watch that and see if there is anything you are missing, all of the steps must be completed for it to work.

    For the sync notes, it should work fine, you likely need to setup some options for syncnotes. This is a feature i really didnt talk much about since im actually working on something better and more integrated and likely will remove sync notes in the next update. But the buttons for sync notes in teh skin, they just send keys to sync notes, so make sure you have the default shortcut keys in syncnotes enabled and that its also installed to the default path.
    I cant check on the machine im on now, but later ill double check how i have it all setup and post any missing/additional info you may or may not need.

    I thought you were asking how to remove the demo mode, some people new to RR and winamp, on the first run see the word demo and think its not a full app, when its just the song title of a demo track that comes with winamp.

    Is anyone successfully running this skin on lower end hardware? Maybe something similar to mine (see sig). I've read lots of posts on optimization of flash skins and was just wondering if anyone had this one running smoothly on their ITX mb.

    Sorry my mistake..... I was confused because I had read conflicting statements about it.

    Even with it not being flash based, RR (and this skin) run very slowly on my VIA Epia 533Mhz board. Other RR skins are much worse. I've learned to deal with it but it just isn't responsive. However, once I load a screen, it loads it in RAM so the next time I go to that screen its quicker. Frodoplayer and Mediaengine worked alot faster than RR on my system. I've been hesitant with upgrading my MB because I've heard that going to say a Epia M10000 doesn't make a dramatic difference and that I'm better off going with an standard ATX pentium or athlon MB.

    I experience similar results. Until the screen is cache'd the response time is rather painful. I'll echo what others have said to you and think that you may not be happy with an upgrade.

    i firmly believe that 1.2 ghz EPIA = 800 mhz intel. I have a 1ghz pentium that runs this skin just fine.

    yeah I'm not thrilled about the performance of this board for sure. It had a nice set of features onboard though, which was the reason for selecting it.

    ha, or maybe even lower like 600Mhz. The biggest issue with non intel/amd processors is that pretty much no application has code optimizations for those chips. amd/intel has a bunch of optimizations stuff mmx,3dnow,hyperthreading ect, ect (cant remember them all) i dont think epia has any, its pretty much a no thrills chip, with its only real benefit being low power and small form factor. In the car low power and small form are important but IMO arent deal breakers. Personally i would never use a epia based computer for anything media related, the lowest end yesterdays news intel chips are better performers.

    For those with general RR performace pains.

    There are a few steps you can do to make the situation better in RR.

    enable precaching.
    This should already be setup by default for this skin unless you edit it out in RR.ini.

    basically RR will preload screens into memory while its loading up.
    In RR.ini you should see a few lines that look like below.
    preload=alt_menu_cont.skin;MAIN MENU
    preload=alt_menu_cont2.skin;SUB MENUS
    preload=audio_player_advanced.skin;AUDIO
    preload=audio_player.skin;AUDIO ADV
    preload=EXTERNAL_GPS.skin;NAVIGATION
    preload=audio_browser.skin;LIBRARY
    preload=PICK_menu.skin;TOOLS

    this is the list of screens that RR will preload, you can change these to point to screens that you use more often.

    enable fast mode
    In RR.ini add this line
    fastmode=1
    check the readme.txt file for RR to view the different options for this line.

    Turn off screen transitions
    If you have them on, turn them off. If they are off, leave them off.

    Edit the screen limit
    In RR.ini add or edit the below line.
    screenlimit=12
    This value will be different based on how much memory you have and how many screens you want RR to hold in memory.

    Do not use flash although this skin has some (very minor) flash elements, it is not a flash skin. Im not sure why some think it is, ive actually gotten several PM's for flash help, sorry i cant help u there.
    But if you are not married to having a flash car logo displayed, turn it off (there are over 10 main menu options, choose one that doesn't have a logo).
    This wont buy you a lot of cycles back, but anything helps if you are performance challenged.

    Those are all the tips i can think of now. Hope it helps somebody.
