    Bug Thread?

    Not meaning to nag, but is there going to be a bug thread?

    I've found a few things, but I don't want to being pestering. Especially with updates coming out daily!

    OK, I noticed a couple of things. If they were posted on other threads, I apologized if I missed them.

    I don't use id3 tags, so some of my problems are described from that.

    OK...

    -- I see RR can't handle an ampersand (&). I'm getting an underscore in place of the ampersand.

    -- Also, along the lines of punctuation. I've noticed that RR changes the capitilization of file titles. A few examples. If you have an artist, then a dash, then the title of the song, if there aren't spaces, then it will make it lower case.

    Ex: Crosby, Stills, Nash _Young -southern Cross
    Should be: Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young - Southern Cross

    The space that is missing from the dash and "southern" is making southern lower case. I may just be a nut about this because I teach English, but it's something I noticed. I had the same problem with names that are Mc.. like Reba McEntire, it showed the name Mcentire.

    -- When there is no music in the playlist, I'm getting the winamp "open file" dialog. This can be hard to do when driving a car. I know it's probably never going to happen that there's nothing cued to play, but might be something to look at.

    With all this being said, let me thank you for such a sweet program. Other then what I mentioned, this program is EXACTLY what we were all waiting for. Plus the flexibility to customize, the jog-wheel feature, etc. Very well done.

    -expect ampersand to be fixed in the new update
    -On the casing I have a "FirstCase" function in use as to prevent the list from being a mess (showing a bunch of songs all lower or upper case according to the file name)
    -I'll see if I can make the Audio Browser show up when resume/play is used and nothing is in the playlist, this way you should not get the open dialog, how does that sound ?

    I hope you guys do realize that this is a fairly early stage of this project, so expect many bugs along the way.. I just figured that by posting it (even with bugs) I could get a lot of help testing ANDget suggestions for options/changes etc.. so far, this is working well

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for looking into that.

    By no means am I complaining. I certainly see can understand this is an early version. You just have a whole lot of beta testers. I thought I would start a thread to point things out as we see 'em.

    Thanks again. Looking forward to future releases. Then again, as fast as you've been updating this program, it should be fixed up in no time flat. Great job!

    When playing music I sometimes want to pause current playing song. Pressing play sometimes goes to next song. On another hit of play it pauses OK, this time on the next song. Any ideas?

    Another question, would it be possible to display more info about currently playing song, let's say author at least. Is this upcoming with ID3 support?

    Oh, just remembered this one. When selecting a song to play from the list would be great to just press one time, not twice (single click instead of double click) to play the song.

    -This play/pause deal has been discussed already. Hit Play/pause on the same song (selected) on the playlist and it will play/pause the song. Hit Play/pause in another song selected in the playlist and it will play the SELECTED song -- If you want to make the software automatically select the currently playing song, use listfollowssong=true in RR.INI (or use config tool).

    -Yeah, I'll be sure to make commands available to pull up the Artist, Album, Track Number, Genre and Year info from a song. Hard will be finding/making a skin that will allow you enough space to display all that stuff.

    -I do not think that one click to play is a good idea because people would do it by accident and start playing the wrong song. If a double click is too hard for you, just click once to select the song then hit PLAY and it will play the new song you selected.

    I don't know if this is a bug or it was ment to work like this.
    When I select a skin from within RR and exit the program, the next time it is reloaded, the previous skin comes up (the one selected in the RR configuration progam) and not the skin selected within RR.

    Would it make sense to make an option for that? Personaly I would like one click but I do understand your concerns. I guess everyone has it's own needs.

    You should define your DEFAULT skin in RR.INI. It does NOT try to remember your last selected skin -- so it's not a bug.
    But if enough people want that to happen, I can make it do it..

    OK, it's just causing problems with various songs and titles. Like I have Boyz Ii Men or Tlc. And if there's anything in a paranthesis, then it will cause probs as well. It's more odd to see. But it's also a bit of a pet-peave of mine.
