    right then.. XM 0.1..
    Pyro.. can you let me know if this works, what you think.. screen shots, whats happening, whats not.. as for the XMSAT / XMTER what are there to and from values so I can make little aerial indicator type things.. Also it may take a bit to get the station art in the right place but I cant test it here sadly..

    anyway attached it is.. drop it in and change your menu.txt to call it, I'm sure you know what to do.. I havent added the resetxm command, but can do if you wish... would this just need doing once, or do u need to do it say when you come out of hibernation ?

    lol... just wanted to mention one warning about the X... I've set up RR to shut down when I exit it... since I never shut it down if I'm not turning the car off... and I can see why u don't want to push a button everytime u try something new... so I'll just change it back to exit RR again... (The bloody thing left me all alone on the road last night... )

    Just wanted to say one thing about the custom buttons... tried the new LSX Void skin a while back and it had a pretty nice feature that if u pressed down any button for a while u got a new menu where u could change that one to either a set of "ready made" buttons or even new ones! something like that would be sweet!

    as stated earlier, I'm heading out on a 14hr trip tomorrow so I'll try and fiddle as much as I can with it... I'm liking what I've seen so far though, as always with your skins!

    btw, heard that navi v7 will be out soon... TS friendly and not fullscreen...

    probably getting a little nit picky since you ahve plent on your plate to work on already, but

    is there a way to get scrolling text accross the top, so if i have a large song artist/song name titile it will scroll?

    I have it checked in the RRconfig but it doesnt do anything.
    I wish i knew how to do fiberglass work...

    At the moment it doesnt scroll in flash.. saying this I could code it in, but would need really to use a fixed width font, and I dont think it would be smooth like in RR, but more stepping like it is in centrafuse.. I also am unsure what strain this would put on the cpu.. again once I'm into the beta stage ( when all skins are done and its out for the first public release ) I will play tweaking things and experimenting with effects and stuff..

    Cdr, can you achieve some of the effects (perhaps not the scrolling) on slower machines by replaying animated gifs with transparent backgrounds? The growing track number in teh audio for example?

    Hi m8, I'm unsure on how it would work that to be honest, you would at least need 10 gifs for a start ie.. 0 - 9 and they would need to be moved / joined depending what track its on.. + your still going to come up with the limitation of your 2d graphics card, the main problem is that flash and gifs dont use hardware acceleration so your always going to be limited to your cpu to create the graphics so I dont think it would make any difference.. saying this.. Flash 10 so I heard will be different..

    I've spent the last hour doing some resource hacking on iGuidance & come up with this. I'll finish this later this coming weekend.

    looking very nice m8.. when you have finished would you mind if I hosted it to give other people the benefit of your skin ?

    Also on another note I noticed you dont have a logo, which made me look and I found a bug in my setup code, I have corrected this, but you will need to alter your rr.ini file in your roadrunner folder..

    open it up and change this near the bottom to..

    &logo=logo\freedom.png&

    you can put what ever logo you want there also it is auto resize..

    I have just added a audio player slider tonight which seems to work ok, for those that have massive playlists..

    more to come
