    CoverMess 0720 - Bug fix update

    CoverMess 0720

    BugFix Update 0720

    - Fixed most sizing issues where flip button would not appear, still needs improvement

    - Fixed double song entries on backcover
    This happened if useid3=1 in rr.ini. Works fine now and showextensions flag in rr.ini will also be honored...

    - RR 07/01 changed (fixed) the way it responded to fscommand("GETDL","");
    This version supports both the newer and older versions ( for now )...

    - Changed default in albums.txt for songmenubutimage=none.jpg so that no bubble will occur

    - Changed default zoomspeed=2 in albums.txt for faster animation


    ***BE CAREFULL NOT TO OVER WRITE YOUR ALBUMS.TXT, AS YOU WILL LOSE ALL YOUR CUSTOM SETTINGS***

    0714 Update

    -Now supports custom text and text settings for all buttons


    0710 Major Update!!!!
    -This version now only has one mode!!! XML mode is gone
    -This version is easier to configure and has less pre-requisites
    -You can flip the covers and select song(s) individually
    -All list are ilist style, ie throw lists
    -CM will display folders with no cover art

    Introduction

    CoverMess ( CM ) is a GUI for selecting and playing digital audio files on a windows PC. It is writen in actionscript 2.0 v8, and requires the
    carpc front end 'Ride Runner' ( RR ) to operate. It will NOT work without RR.

    Below is a screenshot of CM running in RR...

    The covers can be moved around, double clicking zooms them in and allows for furter actions, such as playing the audio files that are
    associated with that cover.

    CM displays a user configurable amount of covers at a time, in this case I've configured it for 25 max. CM spreads the total amount
    of covers between a series of pages. This can be seen in my screenshot near the bottom left, in the green box.

    The covers are sorted alphabetcally by artist name. You can move from page to page using the arrows or select a specific page from the
    'Alpha Selection' menu.

    You can filter the albums by using the 'Genre' menu. This menu is created dynamically from your file structure - requirements explained
    below.

    You can further filter by artist by using the "Selected Artist" menu. This way you can isolate all of an artists albums on the screen easily.

    CM can load covers from a txt file, that is user selectable.

    Mine is called paths.txt...here is a sample part of it...

    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\- Various -\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Pop-New Wave\- Various -\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\10,000 Maniacs\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\10cc\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\38 Special\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Pop-New Wave\A Flock Of Seagulls\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Pop-New Wave\A Ha\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Pop-New Wave\ABC\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\ACDC\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Pop-New Wave\Adam Ant\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\Aerosmith\folder.jpg
    LSTc:\testmusic\Music\Classic Rock-Metal\Air Supply\folder.jpg

    This file is automatically created in your skin path by CM and RR.

    CM searches your RR musicpath for audiofiles, and then asks RR to create a custom list of folders pointing to cover art.

    If you do not have cover art, CM will substitute with a default cover , user specified, and if that does not exist it will fallback to a blank white cover.

    You do not have to and should not specify jpg in your audiofiles rr.ini anymore.

    So now CM can operate without any coverart! It will display all your folders, regardless.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The included cm_readme.txt contains detailed configuration info and examples.

    Enjoy, and Good Luck!!! Feedback , praise and bugs reports are welcome!

    P.S. The flash animation is opensource, I've just modified it to display cd covers and integrate with RR..

    A link to the original source and to other cool flash viewers is in my skin thread here..post #27

    great start pete works very well and low cpu have not fully added yet just tryed it showing the covers as i'm off to work this morning running late due to this lol...

    i'm no flash coder but i had a idea to put past you .
    if i can create a xml file of my whole music folder, is it possiable to and ABCDE etc at the top or bottom of the flash file or even a button to show a ABCD screen and on press it shows the albums of the same letter.

    ie hit N = all albums in xml starting with N shown
    hit B = all albums in xml starting with B shown and so on

    just a thought great start

    ENJOY

    Idea: A Shuffle button - Randomly shuffles the album covers.
    Looks good.

    So when are you adding the same thing for Videos... cept also each album/postcard plays a realtime preview of the video and can be dragged in realtime on the screen ?

    Sorry, overlooked this! Yes this should be doable.. I'm planning on adding more RR integration..

    The main thing I want is to dynamically search for albums as opposed to using only xml files...so if you are in audio_browser skin and select CD Mess it searches the current highlited folder ( and subfolders ) for any folder.jpg files and dynamically builds a list of albums...

    I'm also planning to implement that rotate button to flip the cd and display the back cover....

    I'm open to any other ideas...

    i think what he is saying is the app dose not resize very well , if you have it full screen its fine but if you have it smaller , when you double tap a cover the cover gets focus but its zoomed in to much , as you can see from my img below the album title is cut off.
    if i make the app area (F,XX,XX,XX,XX) bigger its fine , making this a resizable problem. well thats what i think he means anyway , i have tryed alot of different res's
