they are used for a number of things.
I should of gave a run down on what all of them do, so i guess ill do it here.
In LSTOOLS\SCRIPTS youll find a bunch of .au3 files and .exe files. The .exe files are just compiled versions of the scripts, RR itself dosent use any of the .au3 files. They are included incase anyone wants to edit any of the scripts and recompile. All of the ones that are named, AUDIO, DVD,VIDEO etc, on do one thing. They take you to the said screen, so if you run AUDIO.exe it will take you to the audio screen. These scripts are even actually used by RR, but are included to be used to control RR from a external app launcher Object Dock, you;ll also see a set of .png files that match the icons on the main menu to also use with Object dock. What this gives you is a starting point to basicly be able to navigate to ANY screen in RR from ANY screen without having to go back to the main menu. This is if you use object dock in your car. I use it and find it very helpfull and recommend it to everyone for a number of things. I plan to release a object dock skin install that automates objectdock using the said .exe and png files, but if you use object dock allready you should know how to link up the files with your dock.
in LSTOOLS\CLICKSOUNDS you'll find the files used for clicksound support that was formaly used in LS3.0 but is currently disabled in LSX. The files are included incase anyone wanted to still use them. In an update i plan to make it an option you can toggle on and off via ExecTBL.ini
in LSTOOLS\LINE you will find the LINE TOGGLE tools created by Frodo!
This is being used in the audio player, the button directly to the right of the phone bat meter. What its usefull for is if you have anything hooked up to the line in on your computer you can configure the line tools to mute and unmute a series of lines with one click. So if you wanted to unmute your line in, and also mute the wave or send a pause to RR you can do this, from inside the skin or externaly outside of RR.
in LSTOOLS\WEATHERSCRIPTS you will find the script im using (created by Chuck, modified by me) to display weather sat images. STILL IN BETA.
If you click "The Weather Channel" logo in the weather screen, bottom right corner, it will load sat weather images. This does require some editing of the script based on your local and what url you want to pull the images from for your area. The default is USA.
in LSTOOLS\SB2.9 you will find the included version of SKINBedder 2.99999 that is used for GPS if you are using iGuidance.
in LSTOOLS\IG_2.1NA you will find something that i dont really want to comment on here. If you know what it is and its usefull for you then use it. But read the README.txt file that is found in that same dir. HINT: this is GPS related.
that should be about it.
Note, most if not all of these things are OPTIONAL and used to make things either more customizeable or easier. If you run into any problems with my skin, the first thing i will ask you is if the LSTOOLS folder is located in the root of RR install.
That folder is the default place i use for any external tools,scripts etc that my skin is or will be using.
ill add this info to the post for the skin.
I still havent added the HOW TO that i wanted , just havent had the time.
If you have any problems or questions feel free to PM me or just post a thread here and put LSX in the title and im sure to reply to it.
this is a screen shot of the Object Dock and also a preview of the new speedo for GPS that will be included in a update this weekend.
