    This sounds like a great project you have going! I am putting my carputer together, but am also am unable to afford a LCD screen, so I plan on using this software. I was afraid I was going to have to write my own software, but it appears you have already done a great job!

    Just one question, I have bought a 2x40 character matrix display with the intensions to use it with my carputer, what are the possibilities of using it in conjunction with your software? If nothing else, I can probably make Girder display the Winamp information for me on the display without changing your software at all, but using the screen for folder browsing, etc, would be helpful.

    I do plan on supporting character LCDs. Just not yet. I'm trying to get all the important features done first. The other problem is I don't own an LCD to program.

    Your download links for the program don't appear to be working, I was going to try the software out.

    Aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh! I just noticed too and got an email from Aplus that the server I'm on was reloaded from a backup.

    Here it is again, all fixed.

    TME and the CONFIG program are now in one downloadable. As always, make sure to run Config first! There is no longer an install program, just copy where you need it. Windows ME and earlier will have to make sure Visual Basic 6 run time is installed.

    I have been playing with this some, how exactly does it work in use? Sure, I can select a playlist in config, and it will play that list, but how do I switch playlists, or select different songs, etc? Or is all that just not implemented yet?

    You have to use the remote or keyboard to select songs. The key arrange is posted above! Left and right arrows to switch songs. The remote is configurable, and the keyboard will be in the next release. Directory skipping has been worked on, working out the bugs of switching between modes.

    D:\MP3\Artist2 - No mp3s

    If there are MP3s in the directory, it will play the directory.
    Now assuming MP3s only reside deep down in the Album directory and not in the Artists/MP3 directories, it would end up skipping the directories like so:
    D:\MP3\Artist1\Album1

    So because my imaginary directory structure only contains that one album folder with MP3s in, that is all it would skip. (Mine is actually a lot messier than that!) The other thing is playing all the albums in an artist directory. While this is possible, its not possible for the program to know what is an artist or not automatically. I am considering adding in a mode where you can skip individual artists based on directory, but you would have to manually make the list of what folders are included.

Using playlists that stem together from multiple directories for that mix of songs you put together, that is where I see the need for multiple playlists that won't be fullfilled by directory skipping.

    Making this a separate post so people will hopefully notice it.

    GUIDE TO MAKING THE MASTER PLAYLIST.
    1.) Open Winamp.
    2.) Add all your files based from the master directory recoursing subdirectories.
    3.) On the playlist window, go to MISC Options, Sort List, Sort by Filename and Directory.
    4.) Save the playlist to your desktop or the root of the drive. This is important as it give the filenames in the list the full pathname. Afterwards you can move the file anywhere. Saving the list to the MP3 directory will result in the file names lacking the drive letter and other important folder names.
    5.) Make sure to update your configuration.

    Ok, I got all of that working, but it just dumps all the files into one giant list? Is there any way to sort them by directory? I have about 5000 mp3s, and sorting through them by scrolling a giant list doesn't work very well heh.

    Read my last two posts... again... if you haven't already.

    That and you won't see the lists when using it in a car. No screen.

    I have read through all your posts serveral times, and either I am completely missing something, or its just non-existant. So, I'm in my car, and I want to listen to mp3s. From what you have mentioned, there are only THREE ways to select the song that will play. 1. The next song in the list will play after the current one is done. 2. I can skip to the next song, or the song after that, and so on. 3. I can skip to previous songs.

    Is that it? If so, then I guess I need to find a different program. If there is some other magic way to go and play a specific directory, please fill me in.
