    Changing skins is fairly easy.

    Normally you just download and unzip to the skins subfolder within RoadRunner/RideRunner, and then either use RRConfig to change the skin or navigate in Carwings to the skin selection screen and choose the newly extracted skin.

    Bear in mind that most of the skins on MobileEffects are quite old now, and there might be newer versions available , check the skins forum for the most upto date info on a skin.

    I have just downloaded your skin Enforcer.. (love it).
    But I have some problems, that I'm not sure is me, the computer, or just the telemetric ghost playing me a hoax

    I have changed both daytime and night time skin to iDrive and every time I run RRconfig, they are listed as the active skin.

    When I run RideRunner... It loads the default skin...
    But here's the thingy... If I run RRconfig, and choose "Exit & Restart without quitting" (or what ever the option is called). RideRunner with the iDrive skin starts up!

    A thing that allso can be noted, RideRunner do not remember my winamp settings.. IE. If I change to random and repeat, and adjust the eq... it's all back to basic when I start RR again...

    Atm... the system runs on a Acer Laptop Dual Core 1.6Ghz with 1Gb RAM, running Vista 32-bit

    Have a look at the music settings, there should be a resume option, see what you have for that.

    As far as the skin goes I'm not sure, may be affected by the same setting, but also check you skins paths are correct.

    Install RR and iDrive skin in the Windows 7 partition on the same computer.. and everything worked fine.

    Still trying to solve the problem on the Vista part.
