couldnt get any crashes with the files you gave me, looks to be sweet atm, well until we find the next bugs ;) heheh

well hopefully not too many future bugs will mean time spent on new features, cool stuff Cliff :)

Excellent, Cheers for testing that SLoB. I will look into the loadinterface stuff ASAP.

Just tested this out, and it seems to work 100%, including the dontreposition flag.

i.e.

Code: Select All Code
loadinterface_over(TestFeatures01) dontreposition
loadinterface_normal(TestFeatures01) dontreposition
loadinterface_down(TestFeatures01) dontreposition


The Layers above were my 3 layers. Is that how you set it out?

ahh thnx for clearing the loadinterface thing out, its not clear from the declarations page that _over, _down states can be used on loadinterface and i didnt test for it, perhaps a few remarks in that page will help
i had mine setup as a normal button with loadinterface as a param which also works but not the states

found a couple more tho, small things these one's

add url of an mp3 to playlist, play track, stop track, delete from playlist
shutdown xion
on starting Xion..
if last track played was a url (and url was removed from playlist as above), there is nothing in pl (as expected) but...
songticker still displays url (expected behaviour as last song is saved in settings.dat)

the pause button shows rather than play (rebuffers the url track as expected but doesnt play it (autoplay on startup turned off))
songticker still needs more html encoding to add a space where %20 is used for example

This is correct behaviour and by design, although it seems to be confusing a lot of users.

Here's why it happens:

I always hated in Winamp how when I cleared the playlist, the currently playing song would stop. Instead I wanted it to keep playing the last song, while I loaded/created the next playlist.

So in Xion, I've created the concept where any song can be loaded into the player, no matter where it came from, or if it still exists in the playlist. This way I can switch about and change playlists to my hearts content while the current song is still playing, rather than interrupting the music I am listening to.

Thoughts?

yep i didnt have a problem with that logic, thats how i think most people would think of it

just the associated bugs that even tho autoplay is off and the song is not playing the pause button shows instead of play (i did check that if autoplay is on, it does play the track and pause is shown as expected so that bit of logic is ok, just need to show play if autoplay is off)
and the html encoding thing which is not a biggie but deffo an aesthetic thing which is what Xion is about

i think that is pretty much it now Cliff on the bugs, I'm sure with more usage the odd one might crop up but its looking fairly sweet imo, you've done a great job getting stuff in ther that we've all wanted and making Xion better and better

time to get that feature request list out again ;) heheh, it dont stop ;)

given that most of the sound stuff is out of your hands to a certain extent also lets you get more time in on enhacning Xion with even more feature requests and a bit more time for the gf for the future ;)

perhaps a bit more of a balance on the unskinned items is warranted now that the main player has a lot of stuff going for it already?

I've fixed this for build 68, which should be ready for download in a few short minutes!
