    Ruffy, I just got a PM from JohnWTB, and I think it would be a good idea if you edited your first post to include a short disclaimer/license statement to the effect that "Any of the scripts and such that can help others is no problem to me at all. I just ask that it is mentioned for private use for anyone that wants, and not for commercial use, selling it as part of a package ect."

    Lightbulb Restarting a song from any Play button on your skin

    One of my favorite little things, is I have placed the following code on ALL "Play" buttons throughout the skin:

    Code:
    B,301,517,98,81,"PLAY",@STOP||PLAY@
    This is VERY simple, but whenever the play button on any screen is pressed and HELD DOWN for one second, on ANY skin, the current playing track will stop, and then start playing again at the beginning. It's basically just to restart the current song from the beginning.

    Here is a tip I use all the time when diagnosing skins

    If you are working on a skin with a variable and need to know what’s the status of the variable and no way to see it.


    Just make sure RR is the active window and type -> “say;$variable$” <- and it will tell you.

    Alright guys, I have a little something to contribute to this thread in regarding organize file and folder especially FLASH. This is usefull if you have flash logo, games, gauges, flash traffic monitor, ... you name it.

    I use flash traffic as an example
    The following structure is my setup so you can get and idea.
    Road Runner installation directory
    ----- C:\Program Files\Road Runner\
    Skins directory. All skins will be subfolder of this directory.
    ----- C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Skins\
    Flash traffic folder
    ----- C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Traffic\
    Flash traffic swf file
    ----- C:\Program Files\Road Runner\Traffic.swf
    In RoadRunner's ExecTBL.ini file I add the line below to create a custom command TRAFFIC
    "TRAFFIC","LOAD;TrafficMaps.skin||RUN;C:\Progr am Files\Road Runner\Traffic\traffic data updater.exe"
    Button code to call it.
    B,100,50,80,30,"TRAFFIC"
    Flash entry for TrafficMaps.skin (I use CFX Blue skin)
    /, F, x, y, w, h, Movie name
    F01,140,70,655,340,"..\..\Traffic.swf"


    Note that ..\..\ is the relative path for Traffic.swf file. If any of you guys doing web/html code when calling url, you guys should know that. . My interpretation of that is "traverse 2 levels up the root to find the file."

    Okay, below is an example of flash logo/gauge. I put all flash stuff inside this folder.
    ----- C:\Program Files\Road Runner\FlashStuff\
    In menu.skin file, this is how I call the flash logo (clock.swf by Tissy)
    /, F, x, y, w, h, Movie name
    F01,140,70,340,340,"..\..\FlashStuff\clock.swf"


    Note that clock.swf by Tissy require 2 other files (clockcolours.txt and main_logo.png). These 2 files also have to be in the same directory as clock.swf. So, all 3 files are locate in C:\Program Files\Road Runner\FlashStuff\

    I use this method to put all flash game in a there as well (Tetris for example).
    F01,140,70,655,340,"..\..\FlashStuff\Tetris.swf"

    Well you guys got an idea.

    I don't know if anyone else cares about this since you can configure windows to automatically dial a network connection, but I use the sync button in Proximo's CF style skin to dial my bluetooth connection. This is done by using the "rasdial" command in a bat file.
