    RR mishandling music files with certain symbols in them.

    I'd seen this with the old (2007) build of RoadRunner I had installed and it was new from the much older (2005?) build I had before that. RideRunner still has the bug. This just one example of a music filename that gets mishandled - there may be others due to different symbols characters.

    The filename is 'Am I the Only One (Who's Ever Felt This Way-)'
    RR shows just ')' in the music list.

    6/1/09 release.

    It will not display anything before the - You need to edit your song titles so that the - is not there. I dont know if there is fix for this or not.

    This is NOT a bug, it is a FEATURE for those who do not use Tags...

    Just change the titlesafter setting in RR.ini to blank (the default is titlesafter=- ):
    titlesafter=

    Ah so it is. I can't remember if I got to choose which character replaced illegal characters in filenames (e.g. this case the actual song title had a ? there) when I ripped most of my music many years ago in WMP but I've certainly also seen the problem with song titles that included a dash in them. There's not setting in the WMP in Win7.

    This is a generic RR setting not related to the player or OS, you can find/set it in RR.INI or use RRConfig to change it.

    I meant - I can't remember if '-' is the default character WMP uses to replace characters that are illegal in filenames when ripping or if I chose that character for WMP to use. If it's the default in WMP and the default in RR for this feature, that's unfortunate.
