    Can't get it to work properly. When I use this line:

    "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin||RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP",GMP C.skin

    Nothing happens, only the overlay shows. No GMPC skin and Garmin doesn't start.

    When I use:

    "GMPC","RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP"

    Garmin loads but at the wrong resolution and the overlay shows but not in the right place as Garmin isn't at 800x600...

    When I use "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"

    The GMPC skin loads...

    So it's only when both are used in the same line none of them load. Individual they work.

    Any ideas?

    I think you probably have done this, but have you set garminpath correctly in rr.ini?
    GMPC should fill the skin dimensions if this is set up correctly.

    I have plenty of bandwidth, but will probably dual host it with the forums here.

    One thing to note with the blog is that this wasn't all my doing, I had ThunderStick and ElCamino's help, and I think credit should be shared. All I basically did was the graphics, TS did the script, and ElCamino did the overlay plugin.

    Edit: btw thanks for the recognition! It's nice to be noticed.

    Yes the path is set correctly. It also runs when just using this part oft the line:

    "GMPC","RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP"

    But at the wrong resolution. And when trying to use the entire line, nothing happens. Only the overlay loads but not Garmin or the GMPC skin. I don't get it. It should work, I know, but it doesn't...

    did you copy over the 800x600 files?
    if so, then I will have to look at it a little later today, I use 800x480, and that would work fine, maybe I missed something getting it into the 600 version.

    Yes, the files are copied over. They also pop up when I only use this part of the line:

    "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"

    Also the overlay works correctly at 800x600.

    Ok, I think I found a workaround that seems to do the trick.

    In Exectbl.ini I've split the "GMPC" command and made a command called "RUNGMPC"

    Now my Exectbl.ini looks like this:

    Code:
    "GMPC_OVERLAY","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOL.skin"
    "GMPCOSK","RUN;$SKINPATH$ElcosMenu.exe|GMPCOSK.skin"
    "X_OVERLAY","SENDMSG;ElcosMenu;Exit"
    "GMPC","LOAD;GMPC.skin"
    "RUNGMPC","RUN;$garminpath$;!CDP"
    In my skin file it now looks like this:

    Code:
    B11,400,533,100,67,"GMPC||GMPC_OVERLAY||RUNGMPC",""
    Now everything seems to work except for the fact that the GMPC.skin isn't transparent. It's red instead?

    Since I didn't install any maps yet I couldn't check how and if the keyboard works. But I by the looks of it now this is gonna be a great little add on! I wanted to put Garmin Mobile PC in the car for quite some time now but the lack of a keyboard always kept me from doing it. I think my doubt's are over now.

    Cool Thank You MonkeyRacer!

    While my setup isn't used on a daily basis( I live less than 2 miles from work ) I love my GMPC and have been waiting and hoping someone (with more know-how than I) would work on a solution to this problem. John has done well with DFX 4 to get Garmin into RR but, you including an OSK (with the help of others) is a great stride toward getting GMPC to work like some of the other satnav systems. Although I haven't had a chance to try your mod I hope you will continue (as well as others who add to RR) to get this to work.
