Support and Bug Reports / Jump to Letter Button
« Last post by Cary_B on August 30, 2020, 05:58:12 PM »
Sorry to bug you, but the Jump to Letter button on the Filter by Artist screen doesn't seem to be working for me.  Hope its not related to the non-standard character bug.  Will research further, but for now it's not working for me.

Ok, just tested the Strip Alphanumeric Character option in the config program.  It seems to not do anything.  So I guess that option is out.

Support and Bug Reports / Non alphabetic characters
« Last post by Cary_B on August 30, 2020, 04:53:24 PM »
OK, Barry, here is a small problem I just notice.  I have a few artists that use special characters for their names.  Such as Blue Öyster Cult and Céline Dion.  When I build the library, all seems to go fine.  They show on the main albums screen just fine.  But when I search for them, I can't find them.  That is to be expected, I guess, as Ö isn't the same as O.  Not sure what to do about that except to remove the special characters and replace them with the English ones.

The real problem comes when you filter by Artist.  All special characters are stripped from the artist names, so Blue Öyster Cult becomes Blue yster Cult and Céline Dion becomes Cline Dion.  This really messes things up as now the artists are out of order and spelled wrong.  Also, no artist image is shown unless you name them without the special characters. 

I know there is an option to remove special characters in the config program, but I haven't tried it yet.  Will this just leave me with Blue yster Cult and Cline Dion?  If so, I am thinking that the only solution is to rename all the artist with special characters to remove them.  I don't really see another option, unless you have an idea I haven't thought of ..

General Discussion / Genre and Artist Images
« Last post by Cary_B on August 29, 2020, 10:15:45 PM »
Barry, when you filter on Genre, Artist, and Year, the very first image that is show is All Albums.  This picture is always blank for me.  What do you name these images, and where do you place them for them to show up in the jukebox?

And I can't remember right now, but are the Year images .JPG or .PNG?  I am almost finished touching up all my artist and genre images and going to start on my year images next.

Shock horror, did you let real life, interfere with not replying, shame on you man lol

However, congrats on the new born  :beer

I have to agree with you, Barry has been a total idiot in a lot of respects and I have moaned about him before about sorting the bloody thing out.

He could do with a new website etc etc, however, touch screen software users are getting few and far between to be honest. Especially with Amazon Alexa and Google home. I have a 32 inch touchscreen jukebox on my wall, and being honest it has not been turned on for years now, at least two. It is a boys toy, and thanks to joining Vodafone I got a free google home max so I can ask that to play music, which is quiet handy, as when I get a song in my head, I either have to play that song, or it drives me crazy.

However, I will let you off for not replying in 80 odd hours, however, hopefully you can understand that we will go beyond the call of duty to help people out in the forum. Barry also has a family, a recent one, well past couple of years, so he is not as active as much as he used to be. However, he does occasionally show his ugly mug, and trust me it is ugly.

I used to work in sales, among a lot of other things. I would not be here, if I did not have trust in this software, as outdated as it is now, I have spent hundreds on buying different software, and if I could not sell this to my family, then I would not sell it to anyone else. My family are all dead now, both the really dead ones, and the dead ones.

However, if I could not sell this to my Nan or Grandad, then I would not sell it to anyone. I have been here for about three odd years, lurking, trying to help or sometimes, well usually give people the wrong information, and then Barry corrects me, but at least I try to help, even when I am wrong.

I have also done a few videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtOwHQKlpBMrqzkSDjvG6IkAeBukmqaa9 and bug fixing https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLtOwHQKlpBMqtlbo2O6dv0-X1zAjzNeRn

Trust me, I have been mighty pee'd off with this software, especially when I first got it on version 9, but Barry fixed a lot of bugs so although the software is not 100% perfect, but it is the closest thing to a real jukebox, especially if you can skin.

Once again, congrats on the newborn.

Regards

Mark

A lot faster than 72 bloody hours lol

Ps thanks for the suggestions, but it was none of those things and I had done everything you mentioned in setting it up, I believe I have fixed the issue by downloading and installing the lite codec pack. Firstly, I did some other stuff I forget but it got to the point of the lyrics showed on the screen, but no music played, I then installed the codecs and it fixed that So all working now.

The frustration comes from having no real manual to look at, so having to figure things out is somewhat of a pain in the arse.

I work for one of the largest software houses in the world, and trust me, before we sell anything, it has to be bullet proof and backed up with countless manuals. So maybe I expected similar when parting with my hard earned coin.

Oh typical, he moans about how long it takes to get a reply to his question, and yet I answered him almost twelve hours ago now.

Guess what no reply.

I am moaning like hell now, unless you have a letter from God, you taking almost twelve hours is not on.

Do you see where I am coming from judging by your post, and then another post shortly after, and then three more posts on the same issue?

It is called forum netiquette, we are always here to help people out.

Edit

I will also add, that I would not use Etouch for karaoke anyway, if you know anything about karaoke, people sing at different pitches, different speeds. The last time I done karaoke was in 90 I sang careless whisper and that was a professional karaoke set up, I could not sing to it, the pitch, the speed was all wrong for my voice.

I downloaded pro karaoke software years ago, I might still have somewhere, it allows you to have users, set their pitches and song lists up, the full works.

While I am thinking about that, I actually have my cinema pc on, so I will have a look.

No sorry, I cannot find it on these hard drives. I have a few hard drives around, but not hooked up to a PC, it might even be on my arcade PC as I had a lot of stuff on there. I will try and have a look tomorrow, but no promises, it might be two days.

To be honest, my son called to say his gf had given birth unexpectedly by Caesarian section, so that kind of took priority. I’m a grandad again so I’m sure you can appreciate that mundane things like software not working took somewhat of a back seat.

E-Touch User Guides and FAQ / Re: Karaoke file location and file types
« Last post by Mark Norville on August 26, 2020, 04:41:36 AM »
You need MP3's in one folder, karaoke in another and music videos in another.

In the three odd posts that I have tried to answer on the same subject, you make no mention of what operating system you are using.

I have already answered or tried to answer your posts so I do not want to repeat the same information again, so you will have to read those.

Did I mention that it is 05:41?

I would suggest not paying money for g-force the reason being is now you have to pay yearly for the software.

You used to have a lifetime license, I am not sure where but I have an old version of g force and serial, but I honestly do not know where I have the file.

I would suggest doing a search on a torrent site, and see if you can find a credible download,

As it is 05:36 I am not going to boot up my cinema PC but when I do, then I will see if I have the file on that computer. My jukebox PC is in bits at the moment, as I was robbing Peter to pay Paul taking my hard drives from one computer to the other, so I might have lost a few files.

Regards

Mark

Did I mention that it is 05:36 what other forum would you have support this early in the morning? ;)
