    dont know if everyone would want this feature in the mini-mode, but i would like to have it in frodoplayer.

    is it possible to start the mini-mode off as the little square as apposed to the square + bar with all the buttons as it does now.

    the reason i ask is because when i open up the gps software and fp goes into minimode, it would be nice to get as much of a view of the map as possible. But if i needed to change a song in the minimode i could just press the box and that will open up hte buttons section of mini-mode and then hit next/pause/play and then tap it again to go back into the small mode again.

    Hope its not too much trouble to change. If it is too much trouble to change or if a lot of people have problems with my suggestion, is their a way to remember the last mode (small box or small box with buttons) frodoplayers mini mode was in at last use.

    thats all, hope it makes sense

    It makes sense. The purpose of the minimode it's to save screen space to other apps.

    Yea I have album art in my folders. Some show up but I have to drill down into each folder.

    For example. I said I have my music setup as follows:

    C:\My Music\Genre\Artist\Album

    Now in that album folder I have the songs for that particular album and the album.jpg...

    So for example I could have:

    C:\My Music\Alternative\Avril Lavigne\Let Go
    C:\My Music\Alternative\POD\Payable on Death
    C:\My Music\Alternative\POD\Satellite
    C:\My Music\Rap\Run DMC\Greatest Hits
    C:\My Music\Country\Garth Brooks\Greatest Hits

    and so on and so forth...

    What happens when I go into "browse by album art" is I get a list of folders (Alternative, Country, Rap). Then I have to tap into one of those folders only to get a list of other folders (artist names IE. POD) still no album art yet. Then I double tap on POD and I see the two album art files. My question is... Is it possible to just list ALL the album art without drilling down like I explained? Like a recursive display of all the album art??

    How does everyone else have their music directories setup?

    Thanks!

    i have it set up the same way, but without the genre.
    c:\my music\artist\album

    what u want to do wouldn't make sense if you have over 300 albums on your system. because then you will to scroll through all of them just to find one. but the way it is set up now, all u have to do is click the artist and then u get all the albums by the artist. and nothing more

    I see your point somewhat.. Then I would rather click on the genre and have album art listed... It'd just rather see albums then folders. So they way you have to do it is you go to "browse by album art" and you see every artist you have as a folder. You still have to scroll a butt load.. Say you have 300 artists?? It's just the same..

    I kinda don't see the point if you have to drill all the way down Artist > Album > select album.

    Most artists I have I only have 1 or 2 albums for each. Do you see what I mean?

    the only thing i can suggest is make a shortcut for every album folder and place it in one folder, so when you go to the bbaa you will only see the albums and none of the other subfolders. i think this can be done

    i personally like it the way it is right now. 1st because i have over 800 albums, 2nd each artists has at least 3 or 4 albums under their name, and 3rd it is less of a mess (more organized). i do understand that it can be annoying to go from folder to folder to find what you want and then press back 100 times to get back, but if you know where the music is then that should be a problem.

    Hopefully this is an easy one.

    I'm playing with Frigors skin at the moment - I'm saving jpg images as 800*600 pix but FP is displaying them as 800*480 and pixelating them of course. All the buttons seem to work ok so I'm rather confused.

    Where are the settings to tell FP that the image being displayed is 800*600

    Sorry if it was stoopid question

    Frodo's answered this question many times. Go to setting and turn off advanced screen settings. This will make the player full screen, therefore you will have to set the resolution for your screen to 800x600 to make it fit perfectly.

    is it possible to implement the rotating flash icons like road runner...with the car emblem it would really make it look factory in the main menu.

    ALSO.

    Its hard to see but on top the title is so long that its taking 2 lines and the bottom line is half cut off. AND in the bottom the last song on the playlist is half in the fastforward slider.

    is there a reason its doing this? and even though i have the scroll title, album and artist enable it stays stationary.

    thanks
