    What do I need to do to get them running?
    You need to make sure freedrive is sending RR the info first, goto the freedrive folder and open up the sdk.ini file..

    make sure is has something like this in it

    FDHEADDEG=RoadRunner
    FDSPEED=RoadRunner
    FDSATS=RoadRunner

    also you need to add a few lines to your .skin file in RR.. this info is on page 2 I think of this thread..

    hope that helps you get up and running :-)

    THNX,

    I looked into the sdk.ini but I can't find FDHEADDEG in it. I added =RoadRunner after FDSPEED. I'm going to try it in a minute.

    I also have a problem with tranparacy. On my home PC the background around the logo is transparant as it should be. On my CarPC it isn't an can be seen in the picture below. How can I fix this?

    GizmoQ - I sent the link for beta testing only at this stage so i know there may be some graphical aspects not totally appropriate to your requirments. What i am looking for is that the clock modules work in your skin etc and the colour changing aspect of these new clocks does everything you would want. I didn't want to release more than 2 beta versions at this stage.

    Once i get feedback that all is working well and the beta testers are happy, i will then release transparency versions of each of the modules and send one without the outer ring direct to you.

    Hope you like it !!

    Regards,

    Oops, sorry. I guess I got ahead of myself. My vacation starts the end of next week so I'm swamped trying to get everything ready (including my carPC, the other can wait till I get back).

    I do have one issue with the newest version. I can't get RR to respond to any commands till I return the CSC to the logo, i.e., if the clock, speedo, or compass is on top - clicking on an RR button gets me no response. As soon as I get back to the logo, whatever button I clicked is immediately run. May be my system, but thought I'd mention it for those of us with slower systems.

    A couple more Questions for both you and CDR. If I run a port splitter and set one port for RR and another for FD, which is CSC using for data? Do I need all the FD SDK.ini stuff? What are the different labels you are using to obtain data? This may help me sort out my high CPU, cause RR is probably trying to use both in my skins and they may be colliding. Hopefully I can sort this out so my skin only uses FD for next manuever, direction, distance while using RR data for gpsspd, gpshdg, and gpssats. Its been modified so many times I probably need to print out my .skin files and see what else is conflicting.

    Thanks for the great programs and support.

    I think you need to upgrade your flash player to the latest version. (on your carpc)

    I tried what you said but with no success. I added my sdk.ini, I hope that somebody can take a look at it.

    I still have the problem with the tranparancy of the flash logo as depiced in post #192. Does anyone have an idea how I can fix this?

    EDIT: I got it running.

    I added the following lines to the skin:
    /, L, x, y, w, h, color R;RGB, G, B, font size;FONT, font name, Code;LABELCODES, Tooltip;LABELALIGNMENT
    L,570,270,56,20,0,0,0,12,"Arial","GPSSPD","CENTER"
    L,500,38,73,20,255,255,255,10,"Arial","GPSHDG","CE NTER"
    L,221,67,62,20,255,255,255,14,"Arial","GPSSAT","CE NTER"

    Making a help or readme would have saved me a lot of reading ;-)

    I updated it about a month ago (Can't remember what version). Is there a newer version yet?

    I'll give it another try.

    For those that have the beta link, please revisit the web page as there are new downloads available for you to try out.

    The additional new features include:

    • Optimised for better CPU usage.
    • Added Smoothing to Speedo needle, similar to that used on the compass.
    • Added more downloadable front logos.
    • Updated Work / Change log to WEB page.

    Regards,
