    sound about like what you want?
    Hey TheUni, if you were planning on adding this feature (it kind of sounds like it), can you also add the option to not do it randomly? ie; it goes into the root of your music lib and picks the first folder, loads all the files inside that folder, you click the button again and it loads the next folder etc. If you have random on, then it does it randomly. This would be awesome (not sure why i didnt bring it up earlier here) and a feature ive been wanting for a very long time. In essence it treats your music lib like a CD Changer, which IMO is nice alternative way to load up albums while in the car.

    If possible, the feature (if you code it) should require one button operation. The more buttons needed the harder it is.
    First button click goes into the root dir and loads up first folder and subfolders, if random is allready on in RR, it loads a random folder. Each additional button press either goes to the next folder from root dir or random if random is on.

    I can see myself using this as the primary way i listen to music in the car, unless i wanted to listen to a specific artist or track.

    i dont think that would be too much of a problem. start at the root, and traverse down. inside and out. only opens if it finds a music file. nextdir and prevdir. then randomdir. sound about right?

    aolHater, are you seeing how expandable RR is? I didn't realize there was already so much user modification going on, but after seeing that people are making batch files and vb script files to do sooo much with RR. I think I may be a permanent convert :/ I really want to give David a chance to get things going, but Guino has been so quick to create such a huge "sourceforge-esque" community for his app.

    That sounds good to me, my only other concern would be the UI for the features.

    Is there a way when this mode is turned on that it can replace the functions or commands of buttons that are allready present? Like i would like to use the UP and Down buttons that are normally used to navigate the list to be nextdir and prevdir. Actually when i think about it, i can use a switchbutton to do this right? Have one button that turns the mode on and also changes the up and down button to be nextdir and predir, thats doable right? I have yet to get the switchbutton to work, so im not sure.

    Thanks for working on this, bigtime!!!

    it wouldnt take any effort at all to switch the behavior. just change the skin file. "down" goes to "nextdir" etc.

    I can't work on this until Guino makes a few changes to the core prog. hopefully he'll get around to me sometime soon i'm waiting on that to make a few of the changes i'm interested in. i'll let you know when the stuff gets added though
