The back button issue happens if you skip to the front of the song that is playing; it stays grayed out. If you skip to the previous song it works correctly.
ok here is a new build of NBB.
It includes a fixed radio module as well as the fixes listed a few posts back.
on top of that the now playing text ticker no longer fills with white at the end when the ticker text is longer than the screen. also the ticker is more efficient in both memory usage as well as drawing/animating performance.
It is also now drag-able so you don't have to wait for the end of the ticker to see a piece of info you want to see; you can just drag it left or right to manually scroll it.
also the bundle structure has been changed. the modules folder is no longer located in the resources directory, but instead is in the contents folder.
skins are now quick installable through double clicking a .skin bundle same an modules themselves. because of this i had to move most of the skinning engine initialization to a single method called after the application starts so that when you install a skin when you double click it I don't want you to have to then exit and restart to use it .
I only mention that because it may have had unpleasant side effects that I want you all to keep an eye out for. I haven't seen any myself.
Edit: the movie module also had its browser fixed identical to the music one.
Edit 2 i have removed the non functioning build. I will repost it when i figure out why it cant load the modules
EDIT: so this is weird.... when i run NBB from Xcode it loads and works fine. when i launch it from finder I get the same thing.... screwy.
EDIT2: so I know what the problem is, but I don't know how to fix it. when i run from finder I get a string of messages in the console stating that the modules could not be loaded...
EDIT3: I seem to have fixed it; for me at least. here it is
I posted the final 1.1 build on the site.
The changes from the last beta... well its been awhile and i don't exactly remember all of what i had done. 2 things I do recall: preferences have been tweaked and the scroll as you drag had a major update. Im sure there was more but I never kept track from the last time I worked on it. let me know if there are any problems, I'm sure I can fix them promptly.
anyhow I'm still quite busy with my 2 jobs and other things so I still don't have the time I used to to work on this, but I will be releasing a minor update to the radio module cod e hopefully tomorrow. It wont be much. probably just mess with the table header and finish the signal strength indicator...
P.S. I know the info.plist file technically reports the build as beta 5 but by the time I remembered I had already built the dmg and was too lazy to do it again. the info page in the prefs correctly reports it as 1.1 final tho.
Thanks man. Cant wait to get you back to building. Good Luck!
Cant code cause I dont know how, but give me the paint bucket and my eraser and have at you!
keep in mind that this is a BETA and there are many known issues, and the new features aren't finalized. the updated interface graphics HAVE NOT been done yet.
surprise number one can be found in the app preferences. (should be page 4 on 800px wide res)
surprise number 2 can be found in the top right corner of the music module browser.
aside from that there are several bug fixes and under the hood improvements, but there is much left to do.
one more thing. you will have to give the music module longer to load than before; I can speed up the loading and use less memory at a performance cost for certain operations. I'll be back to discuss it later. thank you
EDIT: please note that I will be replacing the tables used in the various preference windows for a new control class I have been developing that hopefully will resemble the "picker" control in the iPhone SDK. so that will make it easier to use/better looking when that is done
ok don't hurt me. I accidently broke some nib connections for the module preferences. stand by while i fix it
since I posted a broken app I figured i would make it up to you by adding another new feature before reposting.
the visualizer can now be changed from the visualizer controls at the bottom of the visualizer window.
please note, however, that the selected visualizer is no longer saved between app launches. working on it.
