    Hi,
    Just thought I'd write a quick note to say how excellent I think this software is. I will be installing it on a touchscreen PC I have, but for the time being I have been playing with it on my laptop and it's just great!
    Is there a way of changing the font style and size?
    Also, is it possible that there could be an option in the ini file that changes the operation to a pub style jukebox. So, selecting a track will add it to a playlist instead of playing it immediately (apart from when it is the first track that is selected after startup), then, when the current track has finished, the next track in the queue list is played. This isn't like a playlist, as when the program is shut down and restarted there will be no tracks in the queue.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    to add a track from the album you can use "ADD1", and "SELECT+" to add the whole album. see Skin Commands.txt for more info.

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm a bit confused (maybe I need to study the documentaion a bit closer)
    I am using this software as a standalone jukebox running on a pc at home, I am not running it from Roadrunner.
    Can I still do what you suggested?
    Is there an example skin that does this?
    Regards
    Andrew

    Thanks El..

    wow.. this stuff flys once loaded... but takes forever to load all the album images....

    edit: first 10 album seems load real fast then, it starts laboring...

    Has anyone tried this for video yet? does this mean, i need to run two instance of cj for both audio and video?

    cool stuff Sal, now i can embed this better with that setting.

    andrew, you need to download and sample skins are included in it.

    Hi,
    I understand how the sample skins (apple and day) work that come with Coverjuke but they don't include much apart from changing font colours.
    I can't seem to find skin commands.txt mentioned.
    Also, a previous post talks about removing/showing the slide bar along the bottom, but I can't seem to see any reference to it in coverjuke.ini
    I am not running it under Roadrunner, is that my problem.

    Looking at the source, the fonts are hard coded into CJ. A work around is to put a copy of the the font you want to use in the the coverjuke/fonts folder and rename it to the "Apple Garamond Bold.TTF" & "Apple Garamond.TTF" font.

    You won't be able to change the font size, but I'm working on it...

    As for color, the skin folder (i.e. apple, day, etc.) has a "skin.ini" file that allow you to change the font color via RGB values.

    CoverJuke.ini has a clear setting for enabling the scroll bar. Just make sure you change it to true.

    As your core question hasn't been answered,allow me.

    Both ADD1 and SELECT+ are roadrunner commands,the skin commands.txt is also a rr specificitem.

    These are not really relevent to you if your not running rr.

    It would be great if CoverJuke could be changed to only produce a cover if there is actually a cover art file in the directory. Many people, me included, organize their music by artist. Often there are artists for whom we have a couple of songs, but no albums. In those cases, there would typically not be album art in that directory. It's a shame that CoverJuke produces an "Image Not Available" cover for music directories not having album covers rather than just ignoring them. As you say, we could just put an image into each directory, but that distorts the functionality of CoverJuke which is to scroll through album covers.

    Ah ha, Thankyou Griff1, an answer.
    So the stand alone software just selects and album and plays it from the start.
    I guess I should ask Mika if there are any plans to include a Pub Jukebox mode that allows people to select songs to add to a playlist much like WinCab. This works great during parties as people select tracks that they like but infact are just playing your music collection in a different order.
