You're the best Barry.

And sorry for the late addition but one more thing:  Using the MORE BY  ARTIST feature, works great, but when you scroll down, there are positions for 4 (the number may be skin specific) but it scrolls only 3 albums. Looks like you didn't take the 0 into account. Not a huge deal, mainly cosmetic.

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PMBarry, finally pretty much finished up my jukebox, and have been really playing it and trying out ALL the features.  Found a few bugs:

1)  I can't for the life of me get E-Touch to read the ratings tag on a FLAC file.  It works on an MP3 file just fine.  The only thing I can figure is that the MP3 file calls it Rating, and the FLack file calls it RATING.  I have tried about a hundred different things, but can't get the FLAC file to change the field to Rating (Not all Capital letters).  It insists calling it RATING (All Capital letters.

This must be a limitation of the tool i use to read tags, I won't be able to fix this.

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PM2)  If you add a full album to the playlist, and have the second screen set to show now playing screen, the cover of the album added is the cover of the last single song played, not the cover of the album.
(Just noticed that if you have the show confirmation when added turned on, and add a whole album, the confirmation that pops up shows the artist name correctly, but instead of the album name, it shows the title of the last track on the album. This is with using the second screen, and having it set to show confirmation of track added on the second screen.)

I need to look at this

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PM3)  If using second screen, and showing now playing on it, and have crossfade set, the volume for the songs fades in and out as anticipated, but the album cover fades out also.  Only the new album cover doesn't fade back in till the next set of songs play.  (EX:  song 1 plays, fade out, cover fades out.  song 2 plays, fade in, but cover doesn't fade in.  it just shows no song playing.  Song 3 plays, and now the cover fades in. )  By the way, nice feature, the fading in and out part. 

This is now fixed and working for next release

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PM4)  Using HISTORY, Normal history, everything seems to work fine, except that the last line of the data is Played (0) Time(s).  This never seems to update.  Every song says played 0 times regardless of how many times it is played. 

This would involve to much work to fix, best solution is to remove that label from the skin

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PM5) This may be too hard, but is it possible to add an option to sort the Albums by ARTIST/YEAR/TITLE, not just ARTIST/TITLE in the album view screen?  And add the ability to skin the year on the screen?  I know this is probably a huge pain, so no big deal if it is too much work.  I've tossed around the idea of updating my tags to include the year into the filename, but would really love the ability to change the sorting on the fly.  (NOTE:  Upon further testing, this may be harder than I thought.  Seems that you use the folder name to Sort the albums on, but use the TITLE tag to actually show the title of the album on the album page.  This means that if I was to retag my files to sort by year, I would have to change both the folder name, and the Title tag.  I'm sure I could figure out how to mass change the tags, but mass changing the folder names will be much harder.  Just letting you know.)

There was some work done on this but i think it got dropped, I will see what code is still there for this.

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PM6)  Regardless if you have allow duplicates in que or not checked, if you add and album to the que, then try and add it again, it won't show the track added to que popup.  It just refuses to add the album the second time.  If you have added a song from a different album to the que in between adding the album to the que the first time, and the second time, it just does nothing.  If you try and add the album to the que twice in a row, it won't show the track added que popup, won't add the album but does seem to add the last song on the album to the end of the que.  It seems that the allow duplicates in que checklist isn't being checked properly for full albums, only single songs.

Will try and replicate and fix

Quote from: Cary_B on May 31, 2022, 11:29:39 PM7) Once again, nitpicky, I know, but is it at all possible to make the PAGE buttons on the UP NEXT screen actually jump a page at a time, and not just once song?  With long QUEs, scrolling can take forever sometimes.  Again, not a real problem.  Just an observation of a way to maybe make it work better.

This maybe possible, will take a look once other bugs are sorted.

Quote from: Cary_B on June 01, 2022, 02:52:17 PMBarry, one other thing.  I picked up a small Bluetooth remote for the jukebox, controls volume, and a few other settings.  But I found that some of the keys I could use are mapped to a chr$ that is higher than what you have set in the key shortcuts screen.  How hard would it be to increase the chr$s available to 255 or so?  Right now, you have it set to accept CHR$ numbers between 1 and 130.  A bunch of the keys on the remote actually map out to CHR$ 170 or so. Not sure how hard this would be to increase the numbers available.

This change has been made for the next release

Quote from: Cary_B on June 03, 2022, 06:20:17 PMSorry to throw so much at you all at once, but one more bug/oddity.

Select an album with various artists to show the songs on the album, with a song playing (a song off an album that isn't a various artist album). Now hit back to go back to the main album screen. Now touch on the picture of the currently playing song in the now playing box. It should bring up the now playing screen full screen. Now touch the large album cover to show a list of the songs on the album. You will notice that now all the songs are showing the artist like this album is a various artist album. If you have a song playing from a various artist album, and while it is playing, touch an album from the main album screen that isn't a various artist album, to bring up the track screen, then back out and touch the now playing cover on the now playing box, then touch the album cover on the now playing screen to bring up the track listing, now various artist album doesn't show the track artists. Seems like the switch you use to show if the album is various artists or not isn't being cleared properly when switching albums. I have noticed this before when searching for a song, not selecting any to play, then touching the now playing album cover. But never figured out what was going on till now.

This needs me to store the album type of the current playing song, will look at fixing only if doesn't involve too much work.

Ok I am starting to get my head around this and sort it out. Looks like some features were not quite finished regarding the second screen and now playing so i am coding that all in now.

NOTES FOR ME:

BUG: When showing now playing on second screen with crossfade second_media form not updating song info labels.

CHANGE: when using crossfade only load current song info into screen fading on.

I have my new machine set up. I am actually typing this on it, just waiting for the source code to copy across and then to see what i need to do to get it all functioning again. I will then look at your bugs.

Take your time. I appreciate all you do write the program. I'll keep playing with the jukebox and give you any more details on the above mentioned if I find them.

Thanks for taking the time to write this. I will look at these issues for you when I can get the dev machine set back up. Currently it has no screen and I need to source a replacement, however I am looking at replacing the whole machine with a touchscreen all in one. Hopefully by next week I will have done one or the other and be able to get on this.
