Ok monkey my RoadRunner will still not work so Ima post it publicly(in case someone else can fix the problem before you get back on).
Just to let you know when I load roadrunner it said it cannot find a skin or somethinglike that. The error started coming up when monkey made some changes to try and fix my overlay problem with the menu.skin file.
Hmm man I dunno, I will try and delete all those files, replace them with the original, then try yours again. I'll let you know tomorrow.
Got it working but It still does not load Garmin....wtf I have done everything correct have I not?
Sorry guys, i should have posted what changes i made to get it to work...
Ok, for getting the overlay working in DFX 4.0...this is what i did:
Firstly, to make sure that you are getting Garmin Mobile PC to load, make sure you have these 2 lines in RR.ini:
Then in your DFX4.0 skin folder, find Exectbl.ini and you need to make a few changes:
1st: Find the ------Embed External Applications------- section and make sure the Garmin/Gps line says this:
2nd: Find the ------Dynamic Menu Buttons------ section (down the bottom of the file) and make sure you have this line:
3rd: Find the ----GPS Section By BlueZX3 & JohnWPB----- section (VERY bottom of the file) and then add these 5 lines:
When i was looking at how all the files talked to each other in DFX4.0, i noticed that it was all done in the ini's and not the skin files like the other skins. So if you have made any changes to the skin files, restore them to original, make the changes i listed above and it *should* work...did for me (wonderfully i might add)....and i am very grateful to Monkey for initially creating this... :peace:
YAY! Got it working, dunno what was up but I took the computer inside uninstalled everything and followed all the instructions you guys have posted and it works. Only problem is there is still a off sync problem with Garmin and the overlay, here is a screen shot and that you all that have helped so far!
oh thats an easy one :P That is because im assuming you installed the 800x480 skins for use on your car lcd, but running RR on an external monitor it defaults to 800x600 so the skins aren't quite lining up. If you put the 800x600 overlay skins on it will be sweet. Or you can just take your computer back out to your car and im pretty sure you'll find it will be just fine.
RR is set to 800x600 and I used the 800x600Overlay files.
