    Config Location for EWF

    Is it possible to move the Centrafuse Configs? Reason being is im booting off Compact Flash. I have EWF to disable writes to the card but doing so obviously doesnt remember settings, last played song etc.

    So can i move the configs to my media drive?

    Cheers

    not currently, but not a bad idea for a featuere to add in the future....

    be able to specify the locaiton of the main.dat database file, the settings folder, and the playlist folder...

    You might also want to be able to specify secondary locations for plugins folders, and skin folders... this so you could add plugins that needed to write to config files, as well as add skins after you had your system setup...

    I will keep it mind once I get this first release out, should not be that hard to add, but would take some modifications to the base app and I'm focused on bugs now...

    let me know if you can think of any other sections that might need to be on a seperate location, I will bookmark this thread for the future...

    other quick solution is to install Centrafuse on your media drive and all problems are solved...

    it can be installed on any drive on the system...

    this would be the easiest solution and shouldn't case any extra writes except for all the ones that need to happen...

    If drive C is not writable. And drive D is with Centrafuse stored on it.. Will it remember all settings, previous tracks etc? This info isnt stored in the registry or anything is it?

    Thanks

    nope, should work fine... I have installed it on secondary hard drives and have no issues...

    I write nothing to the registry, except when dealing with run as shell mode...

    Great Good to know. I will run off my secondary drive. But as you said it would be a nice feature to be able to move the configs.

    Cheers David

    Ok, today I freshly installed my system and I successfully built my frist optimized system
    - TinyXP Rev06
    - Minlogon
    - EWF
    - HORM
    ... here I am (I also tried to copy to CompactFlash and it works, but I have to get some faster card... the one I have is slower then HDD)
    I am using Centrafuse from version 1.4... I tried every single version - the latest now is 1.1.

    I also made 2 partitions, 1st for SYSTEM (EWF protected), 2nd for Centrafuse (unprotected) and I have external USB HDD for media files.

    The problem I have now: it is imposible to save information of the latest played song. Everytime system resume, I get the same screen it was when I hibernated... and in that moment I had to unplug all removable storage... so everytime I resume I have to load music again. I was thinking Centrafuse remembers the last loaded playlist and song in file in Centrafuse folder?

    Does anyone has experiences with EWF, HORM and Centrafuse?

    Regards!

    it saves all it's settings in the three ".dat" files in the Centrafuse folder and in the System\settings.xml file...

    Make sure all those files/locations can be written too...

    Strange, all of them are "writable", because whole Centrafuse folder is on d:\Centrafuse, d drive is unprotected.
    Probably hibernate is a problem, because it saves every single thing in RAM... on resume system doesn't read the settings from files again, but only resumes from hibernation file back to ram... I don't see a solution here

    if you hibernate while Centrafuse is running, it should resume in the same state as it was when you hibernated I would think...
