    Surely this would prevent you from easily adding a folder to the playlist?

    I have about 2500, I let it read ID3 and selected by Genre... Works well for me. As I only recently added ID3 to my ripped CD MP3s, I also have sorted by folder for genre, too. Maybe you should try this? It seems no worse than RR IMHO

I have to clear the queue, find my album (through a LOT of clicks), add it and load the queue. It takes WAY to many clicks from the homepage until i have a new album loaded
    Have you tried pressing the 'Load' button after selecting the artist. Seems to work same as 1.2 to me!

    I don't agree - It seems no more than 1.2 - took me 5 clicks to get an album, from within a genre I wanted and have it loaded and running

    Why don't you make your own skin then? How many people for example kept MediaCar's original 'blue' skin - That's the beauty of car pc apps like this - if you don't like the way it looks, you can change it!

    and put it into C:\Program Files\Flux Media\Centrafuse

    I already have all music in folders sorted by artist though, I never browse music by genre. I know all my music... I have 8000 mp3īs and my examples are from the homepage, which means a lot of clicks....

    Have you tried pressing the 'Load' button after selecting the artist. Seems to work same as 1.2 to me!
    I tried pressing it when I had an empty queue/playlist, and it just told me the playlist was empty, so I assumed that would not work.

    I don't agree - It seems no more than 1.2 - took me 5 clicks to get an album, from within a genre I wanted and have it loaded and running
    Try counting from the homepage when already listening to some other music, which is where I am when I have a musical change of heart. Itīs is IMO a very lengthy and annoying process...

    This is still a forum, which entitles me to an opinion :-) If youīre the only one besides ebomb that likes the design then I think they could use all the input they can get, if Iīm the only one who doesnīt like the skin then too bad for me, I will have to make/use another skin.
    I am not a graphic artist nor do I have any skills in that direction, but I do have an personal aestetic sence, and I think the skin is a bit cheesy looking, atleast in the environment I know it will be used in my neighborhood.

    i always browse via directory, i'm listening to something now just press the music manager button (was not clear which one it was right away though) then i see al my dirs, just press up or down untill i see the album i want then press the album and then load and it plays and i have 20000 mp3's in my list... 1700 albums works fine, (this is on my desktop in the car i have a selected selection) so depending how far down the list the album is its 3-6 clicks.

    i do agree that i never make playlists. i hope the plugins are ready soon, coz the main reason i was using CF was that it was all in one. (gps, phoco etc)

    I finally got to work with the help of anky1, he suggested show the file extensions, and rename proper extension. Hope that helps the others with same problem.
