Ok, maybe I'm just an idiot....considering search isnt helping I'm leaning towards user error. Where can I change the paths of the maps that the weather option is pulling from?
Also, I keep getting a red bar that likes telling me "Goodnight :)" It just randomly pops up as I'm moving around in the skin...any ideas? lol
Love the skin :)
im guessing your talking about the weather images, there is a script that downloads the images. You will need to install autoit to edit the script and recompile it to a .exe to make changes to them.

The contents of the script are the code below.
you can point the url to any link you wish that has an image. Do not edit the text that is marked red above.
InetGet("http://image.weather.com/images/maps/current/curwx_600x405.jpg", "USCWeather.jpg", 1)
InetGet("http://image.weather.com/web/radar/us_radar_plus_usen.jpg", "USDoppler.jpg", 1)
InetGet("http://image.weather.com/images/maps/current/acttemp_600x405.jpg", "USCTemp.jpg", 1)
after you make the changes (and ofcourse have autoit installed) right click the .au3 script file and compile. Done.
As for the GOODBYE, you should never ever see that, its disabled by default, and even when its enabled you should only see it when you exit RR. So im not sure why you see it unless you edited the ExecTBL.ini file for the skin and mistakenly enabled it. Send me your ExecTBL.ini file and ill send it back to you with it disabled.

The script is looking for your RR install to be in C:\Program Files\Road Runner , if you change your install to that path it will fix the multiple instances of the script from running OR you can also update the ratings plugin to the latest version. Its found in the RR plugins subforum.
Note: I cant promise the latest version will work with the 2.x version of the skin but it should be ok.

All that talk about scripts is Greek to me.
Ok. I install RR to C:\Program Files\Road Runner
I dont want to install (or change) anything else - I JUST WANT TO DISABLE THE F***ING SCRIPT
So, please bear with me for a sec.
A right-mouse click (if I'm not mistaken) says it's IGCONTROL.exe
1) How can I "find" what script it is? (WTF is "script", btw?)
2) How can I "disable" it?
Thanks for the help, Enforcer. I found the answer using search :banplease:
Just tried it and it works like a charm.
Oh! BTW I "disabled" all of 'em :peace:
Can someone please post a link the site does not go past the main page...

Hi LS, i love your skin so far, but i'm playing around with things trying to make a nice skin to integrate with the Google earth plugin and I would like to have it make use of a drop down menu.
[disclaimer] I'm new to skinning [/disclaimer]
anywho, first off do you mind if i bastardize some of code for my own uses? once this one's out of the way.
I'm planing on using your POPUP.skin as a template for what i want to do. this popup will have a few buttons that go through some of the basic functions of the GE plugin. I don't plan on using the "over-my-head" configurable buttons that you have going in there, all directly coded functions. My first kinda road block is figuring out how to get the popup window to popup on top of the existing GE window (i used a tweaked copy of your RRearthx.skin for this and it looks very pretty). so far I can get it to popup but the RRearthx.skin closes so i'm left with my desktop in the open spaces. my first thought is to create a skin that copies the base RRearthx.skin exactly (w/o buttons) and just put the popup frame on top of it in the image files, but then i'm guessing the application frame will appear on top of that. If that doesn't work, i'm thinking that there must be some way to just overlay one skin window on top of another and ignore all the clicks on the lower screen, but then i'm unsure how execute requests are handled from one skin to the lower (but i think this one is probably a non-issue).
any brain storming on how to do this anyone could lend would be cool.
