    Cool


    Thats a RR problem. It is not displaying the .png images in the skin browser skin. In the mean time I put the .jpg versions in there as well so it will at least show up in the list.

    I think you just need to put a menu_off.jpg in there.


    I have removed all of the hard coded paths that I know of. I will look and see if I missed any. Can you give me some insight what went wrong for you?

    Well the line

    picspath=C:\Program Files\Road Runner\skins\DigitalFX 2.0\Backgrounds

    in

    RR_Add-2-.ini


    But also

    these two lines

    picspath=e:\Program Files\Road Runner\skins\DigitalFX 2.0\Backgrounds

    background=E:\Program Files\Road Runner\skins\Digitalfx 2.0\Backgrounds\Sunset Clouds.jpg


    in

    skin.ini

    and I suspect the JTTPlugin is probably hardcoded to C:


    Thats due to a RELOADSKIN path to apply the changes. I replaced the code with "RELOADSKIN||Load;SkinSettings.skin" and fixed it.

    K


    Fixed

    K


    Thanks, I have spent countless hours on this skin!


    It should have been copied right to your desktop.

    Got it


    Hmm, that's ripe for nitpicking


    Not sure whats causing that, I will have to look into it. I haven't touched that skin/ code in quite a few releases, so not sure what went wrong.

    Possible hardcoded path in the autoit script?

    And BTW, thank you! this is the kind of information I was hoping for. Its so easy for me to overlook simple little things when working on such a big project at times!

    Tell me about it, that's one of the things I hate, you get loads of downloads but the feedback popsts are generally non existent, so you don't know if it's good or not.

    Not sure whether to release my current updates for iDrive Classic and iDrive Night Red to bring them in line with iDrive Night green or wait till I have had a play with the transparancies

    I take it the background can't be changed on the fly, ie between each skin.

    Well, it didnt really "disappear" for say, it was just transparent LITERALLY hahaha if you hit the ESC key it would take you back to the first menu screen, Anhow it's resolved! I forgot to change one of the skin files in the "Menus" folder to use the PNG's and not the old Jpg's. There are a total of 10 (Ten) Different menu skins to make the options on the menu screen possible.

    As the the site being down, I have been checking and have not seen it down... from here at least.

    On the phone now with SangreDeThor and the updated version with all corrections mentioned thus far, is uploading to his server. He noticed significantly more traffic tonight than usual (almost 3 gigs in 4 hours) Should be 9:45 or so and it will be ready for download again. EDIT: Skin is uploaded and ready to go!

    question about Backgrounds

    I noticed a couple size for backgrounds.
    856 X 600
    800 X 600
    865 X 593

    If I wanted to add my own Background .

    What size should I be using? 800 X 600 ?

    You can use ANY size image, and RR will resize it to fit on the fly. The reason for the strange sizes is the limitation on hos I did the preview on the left. With a 800 x 600 image, it doesn't quite cover the area behind the transparent menu overlay. I just tweaked the images a bit to fit correctly in the preview for aesthetics is all.

    Theres a simple answer to uninstalling the skin: ::

    Hahha I never though about that, I will definitely remove the RR.exe from the next release. Honestly.... I just didn't want a flood of PM's IM's Emails & Posts as to why the skin didn't work, as the release did just come out 2 days ago. It seemed like a quick and simple fix, and was totally done without thought on my part it appears!

    Wow, I wish Microsoft was this fast at fixing bugs. Thanks for the wonderful skin! Skins like this make it hard to part with money to buy the competition. Please note that I am not talking about Streetdeck.....

    Maybe the installer can just rename the old RR.exe, and revert on uninstall? Otherwise you're still going to get all those PM's and emails...



    Oh - just a couple other questions... feel free to put these off as minor things as they are very minor.

    1. Browsing albums by cover - I saw the preview - is that still WIP or is it an option in this skin somewhere?

    2. The progress indicator on some things, the Player skin for example, is still a solid blue color, probably still from the old skin. As someone else said, it's nitpicking but it just pops out at me

    3. Waaay minor - can we have a clock on the Player skin like there is on the Radio skin? I leave mine on either Radio or Player 99% of the time.

    4. Like #3 - how's about a switch like on the Player skin to embed GPS on the Radio skin too

    But treat these as one person's "wants", not global "needs/fixes"

    Thanks!
