I'm trying to compile the script on my pc, but I need the include files:
can u post it?
I can add something to ini to get rid of the scrollbar and the buttons below but it won't really give you more space.
i don't think there is anything else to add.. if I keep adding stuff I might as well replace RR and winamp since flash has its own mp3 player.
One thing that really bugs me tho is the fact that I fonts don't come out right on RR playlist that are from two different localizations ( i.e. korean and brazilian). You can only set XP localization to one language and you're stuck with it. I guess just have to wait for full unicode transformation by guino.
The album.m3u playlists in each folder are aleady in unicode format which winamp 5.3+ supports.. we only need RR to be able to read them as well and we can have a universal player that supports any language you throw at it!!.
Here is the ini:
-reflection changing this to off will make the whole thing a lot faster bc it won't have the reflection image of the albums.
-background is the pic you want loaded when it loads. (in backgrounds folder)
-albumartalpha - transparency setting from 0-100 for the album art cover.
- playlistalpha- transparency for the playlist from 0-100.
- flip direction- off/on this will change the direction in which the playlist will turn when it closes back to the album art.
- flipspeed- anywhere from 0 to 100. Speed the album will flip over.
- genreswitch- on if you are using the builder-genre.exe and off if you use the builder-artist.exe. Mostly depended on how your music is organized in your folders.
I'll post this on post #1 as well.
call me dummy or whatever.......
every start of reading my musik path ended in a box where i should send billy G. a message that he can help me by my problems.
i make the musikpath in genres, i make him to artist... i change all tags to id3v2 with all
inputs... artist, album, year, genre.
i change all albumcoverpics to folder.jpg.
NOTHING. every call... after delete the old results is different to the result before.
if i look inside the artistlist i see the position the readin ended. its after 21 folder.
if i look inside the folderlist.. it looks complete.
i register the cddbcontrol.dll.
did i need more programms to run autoedit files ?
the problem is with all COVERFLOW files. the small, the 16 and the 20 genre too.
what i find secondly is, in every folder would be install a playlist album, in the folder where it stops is no playlist file.
all other behind have no playlist too.
these .mp3 files have french/german characters.... could this be a problem ?
Here is SendRR.au3. File.au3 and Array.au3 are packages in autoit and should be found automatically when you compile it. SendRR is used only to send the reload skin command. I used that instead of instantiating RR bc its simpler.
Oh and GF-ler, having french and german music won't work with the script because of CDDBControl which is unable to read foreign characters. To "make" it work you have to edit the filename and id3 tag to english for the first 2 songs on each album.
Code:Global Const $WM_COPYDATA = 0x4A $My_Hwnd = GUICreate("SendData") $hwnd_RR = WinGetHandle("RoadRunner") Func SendCommand($My_Hwnd, $hwnd_Remote, $sCmd) Local $CmdStruct = DllStructCreate('Char[' & StringLen($sCmd) + 1 & ']') DllStructSetData($CmdStruct, 1, $sCmd) Local $COPYDATA = DllStructCreate('Ptr;DWord;Ptr') DllStructSetData($COPYDATA, 1, 1) DllStructSetData($COPYDATA, 2, StringLen($sCmd)) DllStructSetData($COPYDATA, 3, DllStructGetPtr($CmdStruct)) DllCall('User32.dll', 'None', 'SendMessage', 'HWnd', $hwnd_Remote, 'Int', $WM_COPYDATA, 'HWnd', $My_Hwnd, 'Ptr', DllStructGetPtr($COPYDATA)) $COPYDATA = 0 $CmdStruct = 0 EndFunc
delete all id3 tags from the mp3s after break point (artist by artist) and wrote them new. in some mp3 where informations you could edit with any mp3 editor.
learning by doing, things like that i never forget. and if, i ask my son.
ok i gotta admit.. i'm mildly confused as to some of the inner workings of this script. i was under the impression that the main purpose of builder-genre.exe is to build albuminfob4.xml and folderslist.txt I created a script to do just that in your format allowing a potentially unlimited amount of directories. But xmlparser.exe doesnt appear to use that created .xml file at all. Is that correct? I guess my confusion is in the fact that there's a bunch of .xml's created and i dont understand what all there purposes are for. Maybe i can just send u my builder script and u can implement it into the rest of your code.
