    ID3 Tag Information, how to make it work?

    Guino,
    I have a question, such as that Road Runner is showing my files such as 1014.Take My Breath Away without artist anme or anything, when trying to use the ID3 Tags. Here is an Image of my Player with a song selected and playing.

    Here is the Text from my .ini file so that you can see all the settings that I have selected:

    @bry21317:
    This isn't a bug or your false. At the moment "only" ID3 titles are displayed in RR. But Guino is working on options how ID3 will be displayed, soon
    e.g. artist - title or album - title,...
    Give him time..

    Thanks for the Info. I wasn't sure if he had fully finished it or not, this is why I was asking.

    Thanks,

    How do we enable the custom ID3 Formatting??? I have changed the UseID3 tag in the Ini file but it doesn't seem to have change it much, is there any way to make it do similar to:

    e.g. artist - title or album - title,...

    The only reason I ask is I have just spent hours redoing all the ID3 Tags on my albums

    Do you have the latest release of RR?
    Then start RRconfig.exe, scroll down to music settings and you can edit ID3 tags for PLAYLIST and BROWSE (e.g. %artist% - %title% )
    Or you can still load the ini and add the following lines (but you still need the latest release):
    id3listformat=%artist% - %title%
    id3browseformat=%artist% - %title%

    Have fun!

    If you're going to use tags, you better have them correct (j/k).. If the tag is completely not found, RR will default into the next tag, if that is not found either, then it will use file name formatting (like first versions). Now if the tag is incomplete, well you'll get incomplete names, wont you ? :|
