    best skin for a epia m10000 1gz computer

    i am a current frodo player user and im fairly happy, but frodo dropped off the face of the planet. so i know that road runner and some other frontends are better from a technology and convienence factor. road runner seems to work pretty well, but the skins i've tried so far were too heavily based on flash. i even bought a pci video card to help speed things up but it didnt do anything. so obviously flash relies more on CPU speed and less graphics rendering power.

    SO my question is what is everyones favorite RR skin to use on this board that runs decent? im under the impression that the epia m10000 (too many 0's?) is one of the more popular motherboards for cars, so im assuming that most people here are in the same boat as me

    thanks

    I have an m10000 and I run the green alpine skin. Absolutely no flash and its fast and has good looks, not to mention matches my interior lighting and amps

    i use the bmv2 skin with the spinning flash logo. Works great. So small flash is ok, just not a lot.

    I use the CFX Style skins, they are listed in the skin listing thread I believe. Works like a charm

    Hi,

    I know you are asking for good Roadrunner skins, but in my experience (I have an epia M12000), you should try other front ends as well. I recently converted to Centrafuse after trying a lot of the roadrunner skins available.

    I don't mean to complain about various peoples skins (I certainly wouldn't haven't have the know-how to code my own), but I couldn't find one that included all the functionality I required - I liked the Freedom skin, but it was too flash heavy for my PC.

    Freedom was based on Centrafuse, which is what got me to try it.

    Sure Centrafuse is only in the beta stages, but it is rapidly becoming more and more popular, with a huge following and excellent support. It is free to download the trial version and to get a serial code which enable full functionality until at least April 2007.

    Try it, I guarantee you'll like it.

    Hope this helps,

    PJ
