DWJukebox 3.4 Released
« on: February 18, 2010, 03:14:34 pm »
DWJukebox 3.4 has been released.  This version includes discrete command buttons (On/Off commands as opposed to simple toggles) for most toggleable features for ease of use with remote controls.  In addition, a new User Timers feature has been added for skins; look for upcoming development blog articles to describe how this new feature works.  In addition, new page change animations are available, and animation in general has been improved and is less likely to cause song stutters.  Finally, PNG is now supported in both skins and the Slide Show screensaver.

Here is the full changelist for 3.4:

  • Added User Timers feature for skins.
  • Added support for PNG files in skins.
  • Added support for PNG and BMP files to slideshow screensaver.
  • Added SlideInHorizontal, SlideOutHorizontal, SlideOverHorizontal, FlipHorizontal, RotateHorizontal, SlideVertical, SlideInVertical, SlideOutVertical, SlideOverVertical, FlipVertical, and RotateVertical animations.
  • Added SlideShowMaxImageSize to [ScreenSaver] section of JUKEBOX.INI.
  • Added DisplayOutputFile to [Settings] section of JUKEBOX.INI.
  • Added AnimationAcceleration to [Display] section of JUKEBOX.INI.
  • Added page change animations to vertical orientations.
  • Added additional song polls in animation process to make song play smoother during animations.
  • Added BTN_SCREENSAVER, BTN_SCREENSAVER_ON, and BTN_SCREENSAVER_OFF.
  • Added BTN_PAUSE_ON and BTN_PAUSE_OFF.
  • Added BTN_RADIO_ON and BTN_RADIO_OFF.
  • Added BTN_LOOP_ON and BTN_LOOP_OFF.
  • Added BTN_PLAYSTIMULATOR_ON and BTN_PLAYSTIMULATOR_OFF.
  • Added BTN_FREEPLAY_ON and BTN_FREEPLAY_OFF.
  • Added a CMD message for every BTN message.
  • Added MSG_SONGSELECTED when a song is selected by any user action rather than by radio mode or the play stimulator.
  • Added MSG_START_SKIN when a new skin is loaded.
  • Added LimitSkipLastToMostRecent setting to the [Settings] section of JUKEBOX.INI.
  • Changed MSG_START_SKIN to be the default icon action.
  • Changed default animation speed from 30 to 20 (making page change animations 33% faster).
  • Changed BTN_COMINGUPSCROLL to loop back to the first page after going past the last page.
  • Changed condensed font to left-align rather than center if the text is too large for the titlestrip.
  • Fixed animation smoothness issues for album skins.
  • Fixed song skip during a screen shot.

As usual, the latest version is available at the DWJukebox.com download page.

It's the same display.txt that has been there, the new setting just lets you relocate or disable the file, mostly for those on flash drives.

Well where the heck have I been then ?? 

Still looking forward to playing with it.  ;D
Hadn't gotten the display running yet on my juke, and that's all it's lacking functionality wise.

I tested it with LCD Smartie, so if you're using that you should be good to go.  :)

I have been running version 3.1.1 in my juke since I put it together and have been totally happy with it.
Guess I just missed the update when the DisplayOutputFile was incorporated.
Just glad to know now and maybe I'll get back to working on that part of it.

I tested it with LCD Smartie, so if you're using that you should be good to go.  :)

Cool..... now I just have to dig back through some of the readings abut the LCD Smartie and such to see how I can work that into an LED display versus and LCD display and all that jive. (I know I read something about it one time at least) The microcontroller principals seem about the same, just driving of the LED segments might have to be taken care of differently, etc. I dunno, been awhile since I looked into it.

Either way..... ought to be fun to play with.  :cheers:

I didn't want to lose all the changes I've made to the configuration file on my older version,  so I just copied the .EXE over.  It works fine,  but animations are non-existent even when I adjust them.  Any suggestions?

Just copying over the EXE is fine, you'll just get the default settings for any new options that aren't in your INI file.

If you set DebugLevel=3 in jukebox.ini, start the jukebox, change pages once, then exit, and attach the resulting jbdebug.log file, I should be able to figure out what's going on.

Thanks!
