I don't know if I would bother. The radioshark is am capable, But I've never been able to pick up am, even a couple hundred yards away form a transmitter.
Every other post or forum I've read on the 'shark also has indicated that am is useless.
yeah, that probably is the case. I do have an empty button on the radio screen though, and ive been looking for something to fill it with so if its just a matter of adding a command to switch to AM mode its not a big issue.
Here is the definitive list of things to do before 3.0 is ready.
png conversion is about 98% done
list of files left to be converted
some files need additional work other than being converted, but very minor.
It seems like a long list, but also remember there are 208 .skin files (by far the largest of any skin) that had to be updated and converted for this update.
Code tweaks are about 99% done
code complete is very close, a few outstanding items that i want to add or look into are POI NAV and GAS NAV, im not sure about gas nav, i tihnk it only works with gps gas and not the native gas plugin in which case it wont be added unless the native gas features have the lat&log of the stations available as labels or vars. Some other items i cant really think of right now, but nothing that is super major or that will take a long time.
So with that said, overall status i would say is about 97% done.
This is for the night version of the skin!
The day version of the skin will only require the png conversion but should go a little bit faster as i dont have to update the .skin files just replace the .jpg's with png's. This will take aprox 2-3 weeks give or take a week since the only avail time to work on the skin is on the weekends.
The night version will be released before the day version. If i dont do it like that, its too tempting to add more features till the day version is done, thus pushing back the release.
Down the road:
Ive been toying with an idea to have 0day beta updates, where anytime i make any changes to the skin, ill upload them to a beta site where anyone whos brave enough, can grab and test out. But this would strictly be for beta versions only and support for them will be minimal. Im not sure though, as i doubt i have enough extra free time to manage open betas so it may end up being a closed beta with access only to a few select people at any time. Something like, if you want access to early betas you will have to report bugs you find. If you dont report any you will be removed from the list and someone else will take your place. That sounds fair. When 3 cycles of groups fail to report any bugs ill assume its bug free :) Then release that as an update. So if this does happen, those that want in should be people who really want to test and find bugs, otherwise please dont sign up as you'll just make things take longer for everyone else.
Thanks for the update :) The skin is already amazing.
Help Please !!!
Amazing skin just a few issues I am not able to fix a few issues. Some help would be really appriciated... Thanks in advance.
1. How do I change the Logo? right now i have VW logo..
2. When I go to weather screen nothing happens there is no temperature or any other read outs.
3. How do I make RR switch between night and day skins automatically?
Please help me in these issues. I have tried to search for these issues but nothing addressed these issues...
the first 2 should be easily found,
to change the logo go here
clock.swf is the file you want to overwrite.
to setup weather add this line to your rr.ini
there are a few methods of auto switching skins, i know at least one is gps based. The best bet is to search the RoadRunner section to find which one suits u.
the one built into RR is set inside the file general.ini found inside the skins folder. I think there is also a line u need to add to rr.ini for this to work right. Not 100% sure. I never auto switch so im not the best person for that question.
Hi Thanks alot..
