If you are sufficiently far enough into a song, even during shuffle mode, it will restart the song. If you are less than 5% into a song, then it goes to the previous song. Which in the case of the current poor implementation of shuffle mode is simply another random song.Originally Posted by pepsibobby
I'm all far improving the shuffling (infinitely more so than supporting Arabic strings), maybe iamgnat and I can work on it.
If you're redoing the shuffle logic, consider marking which songs have already been played and only picking from ones that have not. This guarantees that all songs are played once. Another route would be to give the high rated songs a higher chance of being picked in a roulette wheel selection routine (see http://www.geatbx.com/docu/algindex-02.html#P399_25658 ).
Definitely. I just sent iamgnat my code to generate a playlist without any repeats, and after he looks it over we can work on implementing it. To be honest, it shouldn't be a big deal and should be done before the weekend (but I am entering another round of exams [Friday, Monday, Friday, Monday, Wednesday].. lol)Originally Posted by snoe

I was going to look at this this weekend. Now i guess i'll look into some internationalization stuff (I said look! I'm not promising anything ). I also want to look at the Global Prefs idea I mentioned for the clock.
wow thats actually an awesome idea lmaoOriginally Posted by defender90
I would love to see this
EDIT: actually on a side note, I personally think it would be better if AMP had some of the of the stuff moved to the main menu. For example, the web browser seems kind of buried and i think it would be nice if it was right next to the music, movies, and photos. I duno, it might make it a bit to crowded but i think it would be a bit better if everything was right up front and quick to get to.

Car broken into... progress is basically zip...
I'v'e thought about that. But.. This stuff is for in car use. How often are you driving and need to quickly access the web? My original "main menu" for AMP was six icons across, all about the size of the Movies/Photos icons. But then I went for the FrontRow look. I dunno..
I'm trying to think of a way to quickly jump between music/photos/movies/misc without having to jump back to the main menu. Programatically, it's (literally) nothing, but I mean as far as design of the UI.
I personally really like the look of the the UI. Having only four icons at the start enables the icons to be large enough to touch without even looking. The web browser on the other hand would involve a lot more touching so you should probably have your car stopped somewhere before using it, thus creating enough time to click the "dashboard" icon and then the "browser". Its just one extra touch.
I do agree that it would be nice to be able to switch from movies, images, music easier, but the back button isn't that big of a deal...
If you wanted you could set up a permanent menu kind of like frames work with a webpage, or how some programs use tabs to navigate. Some kind of permanent buttons at one of the corners... or one in each corner, something like that would work to quickly navigate.
