    Aaron,

    Thanks for that, I'll have a play over the next few days.

    The Silab is coming from Farnells AUD $70.40 delivered in 7-10 days. There was an updated DLL posted for it earlier this month.... Have been deciding how to get sound out. Replace the factory headunit with one with a rear input at the rear, or bite the bullet, do what you did to the dash and slip an amp behind the back seat of my 4 door 2007 Hilux.. Blaupunkt have an interesting one with AUX inputs for the PC...

    Cheers Rod

    No probs, i'll check out the radio, cheers!

    I am happy having removed my head unit and never looked back, others may disagree, all personal preference I guess.

    Wink Good to see the topic alive

    HI Happy
    I haven't yet taken the plunge of removing the head unit although I'm still looking at that... I guess i'm still not convinced that anything running Micor$oft is good long term

    I can't say i've had the problem you're talking about... I have lost my ability to run RR at the moment but will dig out the config I was using and see if what the go is... I vaguely remember that button to be different to the normal one from the apps load area.


    As for the missing windows, I though I had that one fixed a long time ago... can you tell me which ones exactly dissappear?

    CHeers, Justin.

    Here's the button code I'm using for starting Ozi at the main menu page:
    B05,011,300,369,116,"LOAD;OZI.SKIN;OZI EXPLORER;C:\SkinbedderV3P2\SKINbedder.exe;OziEmbed ded",


    Here's the close button code (cross button):
    B02,656,000,046,053,"ACTIVATE;OziEmbedded||CLOSE", "Close"

    Here's the return/exit button code (return arrow):
    B04,754,000,046,053,"EXIT","Exit"

    Those buttons work fine in my installation... are they the same as what you have?

    Bugger,

    When I was talking about the windows dissappearing, that was with the standard Roadrunner embedding (They are raised behind the app).

    The problem I have with Skinbedder is that I made my Ozie skin that road runner uses based on the Launch skin. When you try to return to the Main RR menu with the button (the ENTER button symbol that looks something like <_|) Ozie stays running, Skinbedder closes but when you click on the main menu button again a new instance of Ozie is opened. Can this be fixed?

    I have a copy of Photoshop here and I have been playing with redoing your original graphics (I happen to quite like the original brushed metal skin!) and have come up with these buttons so far but have not built the matching skin files:



    Geez this is tedious work! and to think I used to employ a graphic artist to do this stuff! Wish I still did!

    I have tried to make the buttons mirror the Ozie ones, and will probably change the GPS one (second last) to be the same as Ozie as I have just pasted in an icon I found ATM. I moved the exit button to the top and wanted to have a down button (last one) to take you to the second menu (which will have a previous menu button at the top and a next menu button at the bottom). The third last one (Map here) may not be intuitive, but if you look at the toolbar, there is an icon that has four arrows for (map north, map east etc) with a dot in the middle for "Map Here"!

    I noticed the the "Map Here" button did not appear to have any active code. Did you get this going? (There is no short cut key in Ozie.) I know the Windows messaging API can send a message to another window to activate the window if it is closed, can this be done with Skinbedder? Or do you need to use AutoIT?

    Let me know what you think of the buttons, happy to share these when I get them sorted. Not too sure if I want to redo your keyboard screens though!

    Cheers Rod

    Cool Lets make it happen

    Hi Rod

    I love the look of the buttons... I too like the brushed metal skin look and would like to go that way. I have no idea how to drive photoshop, but if you're willing to do the graphics, I'll soon put them in the skin... I'm happy to work that way if you are

    Cheers, Justin.

    I remember coming across both of these problems... The first problem is to do with the way that RR embeds programs; hence I went on with skinbedder.

    The second problem is quite simple actually. The return button should not close normally, that's what the X is for. In any case, it's due to skinbedder being closed as this is the program that is acually embedded by RR. In the skinbedder config you need to set up a script to force close Ozi when skinbedder is closed. Check out Ozi.ini in the skinbedder directory.

    As I said... I have no idea how to drive photoshop...

    Actually, in my current version, the "Map Here" button on the first menu has been removed and the "Exit" button is now a "Hide Menu" button.

    Bugger,

    It might take some time, but I'll perservere with Pshop and make buttons for the other two menus and share them. Then if you wrap a skin around them, I can modify the icons to suit the functions.

    When I downloaded the Photoshop .PSD files for the brushed skin, I found they had different effects for the three different graphics required in different layers. Once I got my head round them, it was a matter of turning off different layers to create the three different graphics from the one file using save as.

    So if the Map Here button now hides the menu, how do you get it back again? Do we need to do that if I make the buttons transparent? Have not tried to do that yet.

    Rod
