    Can someone explain lists to me?

    I have looked all over the forums and in tons of documentation and am just stumped. How does RR know what kind of list or browser to use in a skin file? The (s) definition can mean a playlist, a directory, or a launch list, etc. How does it know which one the skin file is calling for?

    Also, if it is a directory, how does it know what the root directory is?

    The documentation just seems to be way too vague here. Please advise, thanks!

    Some of them are hard coded, like in the skin browser. When you open the skin browser and have a S definition it is populated from the RideRunner\Skins folder.
    For Directory lists you can define you direcrtory as in
    SD,00,03,32,32,"$Backgroundpath$","*.jpg", this will load the list with the pjg files in the
    Backgroundpath definition. BackgroundPath=C:\Program Files\RideRunner\Backgrounds.

    If you have a Text file with info like Audio, Radio, XM, Video saved as List.txt then you can use a CL (CustomList) and populate it from that text file with a Command
    CLLOAD;C:\WhereEver\List.txt;true;-1

    And of course lots of reading...
