    please keep in mind that this application is not just for RR users, the way it works is sooo nice, all we need (not just RR users) is a faster loading, how?, with a simple database. and like i suggested, a simple Xml, ini, or txt would do the trick. but please don't try to lock this to RR asking to implement a DB created just for RR.

    I agree with El on this one ... while this program is very, very good, it is a standalone program capable of displaying and playing your music / video ... exactly the same as the original CoverFlow program was until the were bought by Apple.

    So while we all want a perfect integration with RR - this program will most likely always be a standalone program that we have to embed as best we can. Faster loading is something that should be implemented - but in a way that works for the program - not just for us RR users !

    I vote for a simple .xml, .ini, or .txt.

    For those of us that don't use the Media Database, but still want the coverflow style, it would be nice to be able to use this.

    Maybe have it check if the Media Database file exists, if so, it uses that, if not it creates it's own? That way every one can use it.

    I think kbreeden was meaning to say that it would be nice if it were easier to integrate into RR with some easy commands, labels, indicators etc. Something that doesn't kill the CPU everytime you want to use it, would be ideal.

    After getting tired of Coverflow locking up my system I have now spent a couple of hours playing with Coverjuke. Wow, it's terrific. Nice work developing it, Leberrem, and nice work tailoring it to RoadRunner, El Camino.

    I do have a couple of observations and questions:

    1. It appears to be creating an album cover for every folder regardless of whether the folder contains an album cover. This results in, for me at least, hundreds of "Image Not Available" covers that I must scroll through. Maybe I'm missing something, but it seems that it should be set up to ignore any folder that doesn't contain an image file.

    2. Coverjuke.ini contains a setting for a scroll bar, but even if I set it to 1 I don't see a scroll bar. I can scroll through the covers by dragging them, but I don't see a scroll bar. Am I missing something?

    3. It takes about 15 minutes for the program to build the covers for my 2,000 or so albums. It will be great when it has database functionality.

    4. El Camino, I'm not sure how the search function is working. My music is arranged as \genre\artist\album. My searches are taking me to the genre only. For example, if I search for "C" it will take me to Cajun rather than artists who begin with the letter C or albums that begin with the letter C. I guess ideally I would like the search to be for artist rather than genre. Is there a way for me to do that?

    Thanks once again, guys, for your efforts.

    1. CJ searchs for music files, if found will add to the DB and if cover is found will show it, try to create a folder.jpg for each directory, my tag editor has a cover art downloader, i might create another script to download those missing folder.jpg.

    2. will check, it appears to be broken.

    3. still working on it, what you can do is to preload coverjuke on startup.

    4. i think the search function works using album or artist, not sure.

    fixed. "scrollbar = true" will show the scroll bar.

    Suggestion:

    Since this app can't be embedded by conventional means into RR, you need a way to allow users to position the app which is skin based.

    I modified your Coverjukeload script to pull xpos and ypos straight from $skinpath$skin.ini instead of it being hard coded in the script.

    CoverJukeLoad
    Code:
    $rr = ObjCreate("RoadRunner.sdk")
    $skinpath = $rr.getinfo("=$skinpath$")
    
    Opt ("wintitlematchmode", 4)
    if WinExists("classname=OpenGLUT", "") then
    	$Cvrj = WinGetHandle("classname=OpenGLUT", "")  								;grab coverjuke.
    	$var = IniReadSection($skinpath & "skin.ini", "coverjukeload")
    	WinMove($Cvrj, "", $var[1][1], $var[2][1])                 						;move coverjuke in a way that fits the screen and is not in the way.
    	Exit
    EndIf
    
    IniWrite("coverjuke.ini", "coverjuke", "defaultdir", $rr.getinfo("=$MUSICPATH$")) 	;sets music directory from rr.ini.
    IniWrite("coverjuke.ini", "coverjuke", "pathplayer", @ScriptDir & "\Cover.exe")   	;sets script "Cover" to be the player(RR Connection)
    IniWrite("coverjuke.ini", "coverjuke", "internalplayer", "false")                 	;make sure external player is used.
    
    run("Coverjuke.exe")  																;after all is good open up coverjuke.
    	
    WinWait("classname=OpenGLUT", "", 10)  												;wait untill coverjuke is running.
    	
    $Cvrj = WinGetHandle("classname=OpenGLUT", "")  									;grab coverjuke.
    if $Cvrj = "" Then                              									;if no success exit.
    	Exit
    Else
    	$var = IniReadSection($skinpath & "skin.ini", "coverjukeload")
    	WinMove($Cvrj, "", $var[1][1], $var[2][1])                 						;move coverjuke in a way that fits the screen and is not in the way.
    EndIf
    skin.ini
    Code:
    [coverjukeload]
    CJxpos=-4
    CJypos=-10
    COVERJUKE_ACTION=1

    thanx sal, i was thinking in using an old way i have to get X,Y,W,H, from .skin files. that way is not hard coded anywhere. but i'm working in the C++ source to make it more integrated to RR.
