    When Did The Skin Browser get broken?

    Ever since the July or August 2011 RR update the list in the skin browser is no longer in alphabetical order. How do I fix this?

    its alpha here too... no one has touched this in eons
    its just a directory list anyway, so my guess it follow directory sorting rules (established by os)

    I'm pretty sure we sort by folder name, but like it has been said, we haven't changed that in years. I have noticed that if you have folder names with "." (dot) in the name it may be handled incorrectly as a filename (and placed at the bottom of the list) -- please let me know if your skin names have "." in them - I'll be adjusting this minor issue. If this is not your case, please provide a screenshot or a list of your skin folder names so I can try to make some sense of it.

    None of my skin folders are preceded by the "." There are some files I've stored in the "road runner/skin" folder, but those never showed in the skin browser before; now they are.

    Here Is a snapshot of windows explorer (pay close attention to the folders column):



    And here is a snapshot of my RR skin browser:



    and two pages later in the browser:


    The browser now includes stuff that's not in the folder list, lists folders twice, list is not alphabetical, basically it a mess.

    Here's mt skin_browser.skin:

    Don't have to be preceded (in fact you shouldn't be able to precede a filename with '.' ) just having a '.' in the filename makes it look like a file as opposed to a directory. so all those with version numbers with '.' will be treated as files.

    But E, it's never been a problem before this summer. I would think that if those folders are supposed to be treated as files then they shouldn't show up in the skin browser list but they do - only truncated. I don't recall my files that I stores in the Road Runner/Skins folder ever be seen in the skin browser before, but they display now as if they are skin folders. Maybe there was a change in support of profile mode which I dont use or maybe it was for Win7 compatability (I'm still using XP SP3), but something changed in RR parsing those folders/files in that directory.

    So once again the backwards compatibility is broken and someone needs to tell all the skin developers and users the new rules for skin folder names. Users need to be warned not to store files there, too, so as not to corrupt the skin browser list. My dev machine has every skin ever released for RR and the skin browser on it is totally scrambled. If this is just the way it is, I and many, many other users are going to have to do quite a bit of work to rename those folders and if the skins use any absolute file references in those folders, we'll also have to update the RRCode in the skins to the new folder names.

    I have fixed this already, I don't see any "FILES" showing in your skin list, I do see skin folder names with "." in the name - which is what I was saying is a bug on the Oct Release (probably since some time ago). Notice some of your folders like RoadFuse Day V1.0 show without the .0 part - it was thinking it was an extension, but with the fix, you should not have any issues.

    its a shame you cant show any appreciation, for the work we do in rr, all in our free time...
    you would rather b i t c h, fine...
    and say things like warn users, you actually think we changed something on purpose(then didnt want to let anyone know)
    when we make a change to rr, we try to the best of our ability to keep history.txt updated, i bet you will find nothing
    on naming of skin folder names

    i have a handfull of skin folders with . in it, they are not thought of as files, they are folders and show right to me


    my guess is you dont like the new MediaLists too

    "horse" and "main logo" are .png files; "Spectrum Analyzer" is an .AVS; SpinningCaddyLogo is a .swf.

    Thanks Guino and Mitch for the fine work you do for the RR community. I've been with RR so long it may seem like I take you for granted, but I do appreciate what it takes to continually develop and maintain this outstanding front-end.
