naw. doesn't work that way for moi.i have the data.zip fine and dandy. inside data.zip are the sky 1, 2 3, etc. dot bmp's.do i delete sky (and there are 3 of them i think for some reason) dot bmp and rename the "3" dot bmp as sky????i got the 2 story house (cute!) and no eye and no microphone and no arrows and no nothing WHICH INCLUDES NO CLOUDS. i know i'm missing something simple.i don't have any subdirectories called gfx or anything like that anywhere.what i be doing wrong?
If you transfer/load RR's v6.8 (renamed DATA.zip) you will see the new day and night sky. I just did, but as he mentioned current version has screwed up some of the fonts in the Dashboard mostly for mileage numerals, but others are affected as well.
sheesh you must think i'm an idiot (oops. i said that earlier).i have beautiful blue sky. i found it a year ago by doing the manual adjustment.i just don't get clouds. maybe i should quit before i blow up a storm on the friggin thing.but thanks for helping (RR :P
Well, I am just soo confused, I used your rr8 and I had everything but your sky....I have put the gfx files in motonav folder then the bt folder to schemes. I don't want the databt1dzip, do I have to get something from it? I do have the vibrant moto and the vibrant night on schemes.... :cry: ps, my time is now 9:33pm on the motonav, it is 4:33pm where I am..... :roll:
@RR - Have now recopied and rezipped several times an now upon boot I see the WinCE error: "Failed to open file: gfx/bt/day/sky/sky3.bmp exiting appllication"
@RR - Have now recopied and rezipped several times an now upon boot I see the WinCE error: "Failed to open file: gfx/bt/day/sky/sky3.bmp exiting appllication" If you are getting that error, the path is not correct. Make sure you have the appropriate folders in your device. Motonav/DATA/gfx/bt/day/sky/sky.3bmp. I use ipie to view the .bmp files and if I need to convert them for editing.When i get back I will add it to TL's Data.zip and release it If you haven't had sucess by then.
@ spyder and ThunderLizard,Let me know how it goes, if you are able to follow my instructions. There seems to be a lot of confusion in the air today.....It must have blown in with the wind from areas unknown. The gfx.zip has a lot of different sky.bmp files to play with even some under the folders for the different seasons.Ramrod 8)
I must have buggered something up in the vibrant_night vibrant_moto.zip still no sky TL. Glad you have the rainbow start up though :lol:If I don't answer for a couple of hours out to dinner...
I have 1/2 of the sky going on auto, night with quarter moon, and blue sky only in the day....correction day with night sky with the always day on....
@TLThe "data path" for Junior to get chocolate milk is InsideFridge/milk.I FINALLY GOT IT! I had to go back and get Bluetooth's vibrant files and get them to the right refrigerator, I mean folder.... :lol: That sky is fabulous!More crazy later I am spent.....thank you one and all, I am so thrilled with this new gps I have!
Ramrod,I finally got it! Thanks to you and the other gracious helpers! It is beautiful. And I did have to reload the vibrant files and then it worked. Thanks again! :DI did have the map set in vibrant and the tilt correct, it was that file I think I must have deleted when I was "cleaning up" things. :oops:
Ramrod,Did you get your pnd to back up on the motoextras? My pnd is logged in but is just sort of spinning and doesn't want to do a backup and when I try to unplug it is says it is doing something and do I really want to exit? The drama continues.....
On a related topic, I've noticed that since we've been "skinning" these devices, I can't connect to MotoExtras. It won't recognize it (says "connect device"). Could this have to do with changing the path from "gpsparam" so we don't lose our data? What are your thoughts?As a "why not" I'm going to see if it will connect to Navi-extras! ;)
I will upload mine later this evening. I have to go for now got a job to go do some repairs.
