  • The NMC 07 "surprise" function unveiled

    This function was ended a month earlier, but i've taken the surprise

    This is the new playlist mode on the filelist. You have 2 options: open a existing playlist and add / remove files or create a new one using on screen keyboard.

    You can use 2 file formats: Winamp's m3u with only support of adding / removing files. You have also the NPL format (for neocar playlist). The new option here is that you can add folders to the playlist. Then you can organize your playlist's files and close / open dynamically folders on the playing module or the playlist mode from the filelist.

    The advantage is that you can have lots of files but take a good view on them. You can also close a folder directly from the audio module or video module, and the folder will not be played.

    To manage the lists, you can add / remove multiples files / folder direct with the touchscreen.

    Note that in the final 07 version you will be able to make video NPL playlist and mixed video / audio playlist with automatic module switching

    Here are screenshots.

    After clicking on a playlist file, this is what's shown:

            wow, such a nice feature. I didn't realize how useful a feature like that would be until you presented it. Now I can't believe I haven't thought of that before.

                      i dont know, if i understand your question right,
                      do you mean levels = Subfolder?

                      Then there is no limit in levels.

                      The *.npl file looks like this:
                      FILE D:\Musik\Nightwish\Tales from the Elvenpath (2004)\04-nightwish- bless the child.mp3
                      FILE D:\Musik\Synasthasia\Synasthasia - Scotias Death.mp3
                      FILE D:\Musik\Nightwish\Tales from the Elvenpath (2004)\08-nightwish- stargazers.mp3
                      So, there is no problem with different sub-folder in a playlist.

                      It works perfect for me in NMC 07 ALPHA2a
