    jpg images for the winamp plugings jump to file work and the same for cdrip.


    i'm assuming that these will be a problem, as logic will say roadrunner had to be updated code for transparent to work so you would of thought the same for the plugins.

    i also noticed traffic button set for the states any way of changing to uk ,
    the only other problem i have is weather but i hav'nt read back in posts as of yet.
    Thanks for the update! See Everyone! It's not just MY computer that the skin work fine one

    The JTT Plugin is actually an Autoit script. There is talks of this being completely redone in the JTT thread under RR plugins. As for the CD Rip, I am not sure how that was coded, but there is currently no way to use transparent images with it.

    As far as traffic goes, that plugin uses traffic.com, which is a U.S. Traffic site. There is no way currently to add UK traffic to it, sorry.

    I have loaded DFX 2.11 on a desktop with iG 3.0 and a car PC with iG 3.1.
    I get the iG GPS display with two vertical columns of icons with iG 3.0 and a full screen GPS (no DFX icons) with iG 3.1. I understand that this problem will not be fixed until someone modifies (reshacks?) iG 3.1. Does anyone have any idea when this might happen? I have searched RR forum, as suggested, but find no clue as to how reshack accomplishes this task. Is there anyway to minimize the GPS display so as to access audio icons when using iG3.1?

    When I attempt to use Auto Config with either ig 3.0 or 3.1, I lock up the system. I believe that I read earlier in the forum that this is a known problem. Can anyone tell me if there is a fix available? I note in iGOptions.skin that most of the paths are wrong for my system and are hard-wired for a c: drive installation. Would correcting these paths cure the problem?

    When I return from using GAS in iG 3.0, there is no GPS display until I hit a gps icon. I believe that others have mentioned this, also. I am unable to test this with iG3.1.

    Thank you! I am sorry, I just can not answer the question any more.

    I have:
    1. Made at least 20 posts on how to it
    2. Added DETAILED instructions in the help file
    3. I even added an option to the Start Menu to fix it with a simple click!


    There is just nothing more I can do.... sorry.....

    Don't take it upon yourself to answer every question, it's enough with you putting out this skin. The main problem is that the thread is getting so big that's easier to post a question than to read through the whole thing. Those of us who have been following it daily should be able to redirect folks to the answer if it's already been posted AND GIVE YOU A BREAK!

    BTW it's probably time to figure out the MINIMUM system specs to run your skin; it has become so sophisticated and feature packed that it won't run right on just any machine. I have a P4 2.4; 1G ram; Maxtor HHD; and NVidia GForce video card and DFX runs just fine out the box.

    Here a little update on what I said. It was never a problem for me. I don't use them.

    With out updated your skin ( 2 Gig )

    Laptop was running with the clock above at 80%

    I downloaded the new version of Flash.

    It went down to 35 % CPU load



    Now on my car computer 1.5 Gig cpu.

    same setup, and clock. It runs at 20 % Wow.


    So, laptop helped by just a upgrade of the flash

    good job , john.

    Hi John,
    I noticed that the Google Earth skin files are in the latest release, but there are no graphic files for that skin. Are you planning on updating these, or shall I use the ones from the 1.0 release?
