Title: latest version bugs
Post by: StLucifer on April 02, 2004, 04:16:38 PM
ok, i'm testing the reles&+um@Vlatest version bugs   StLucifercyberpunk@l33t.it81.116.164.1383br />
question/small bugs:

i've checked the option to autosave lyrics under original song name retrieved from player .. then i click apply, then ok ... when i re-open the options ... it's unchecked ... and EL obviously saves lyrics with the edited name

and what's the "cache style" dropdown men? it's disabled and greyed ... how does it works?

--------------------------------

Crashin bugs:

1) open EL, open the options, double clik on the trayicon to minimize ... it crashes and says:
run-time error '402':
must close or hide topmost modal from first

then you have to kill its process from taskmanager and restart it

2) after a couple of time i've crashed down EL with this metod, when i try to stat it it says:
run-time error '9':
subscript out of range

and i've had to reinstall el to made him work

-----------------------

tonight at home i will test harder, i've got a couple of new ideas to crash it  :twisted: but, of course, i want to try them first ... see ya later

ps: this new version rox ... it needs just a couple of fixes :P

ok ... there's a bug on the launch of el ...

*prologue*
  i'm using el with the winamp plugin, starting winamp will also start el
*end*

star winamp, right click on the el tray icon, click "exit"

sometimes, after el is closed, it restart itself and if you hit again "exit" on the tray icon men it says:
run-time error '364':
object was unloaded

but then it close el and you can restart it when you want ... so it isn't a very evil-bug :P

ok it seems to works great \o/
good work dude, i love you more every day :D

just a question:
some character like \ and * and ' and such that can't be written in the file names are just stripped out, can't them be replaced with something like an  underscore? well, just un idea to make the file names more similar to the song name, that's not really important :P

CDex implementation of this could be a fine example (it supports a different replaced character for any forbidden one), but I smell b..bl...bloat?!? Na....just kidding! :)

In oppose to CDex, since EL already have the advantage of having the MP3 file existing with its filename peacefully and harmlessly on the hosting FAT, it might use the same scheme itself? Of course, you'll might say that it's hard enough getting the title from the active player, but since I've seen programs that can list the open files on the system (like SysInternals' FileMon), then you can do the same, seek for the openned MP3/Ogg/whatever files on the background, compare their title to what you've retrieved from the player (also compare filename, coz sometimes players shows just these), and there you go!

Damn, I guess it sounds a little bit complicated, but hey, I think I've just came onto a way to support more players (by openned music files), no? What do you say? Am I just %!#@^!$ or did I really strike gold? :P

st - u didn't understand!
the above suggestion only talked about going through OPENNED music files, meaning files that are (probably) played in the background.

el doesn't know the path or filename of the mp3 played (if i've undestood what marek said to me) but it only takes the name shown in the player, so you have to scan all the media on the hd to find out what mp3 you are playing ... i guess :P

that's it. but we are able to get to the filename of song played in winamp 2/5 .. with some plugin we can get that info from foobar too ... and with plugin samrolken is working on we'll be able to fetch that info from WMP too i think ... then we can think of adding some file related features ... but i'm not much inclined to this idea as i explained couple of times
