Doscab/Wincab - Wheresit?

<< < (2/3) > >>

Chris:
The next version is going to be a hack to get multiple resolutions working... for any other features to be feasible, I'm pretty much going to have to rewrite the thing from scratch.  This version is just bad code; I wrote the initial version for my own cabinet in just a few hours, so a lot of assumptions were hardcoded in.

I'll see if there's something quick and dirty I can do for vertical resolution support, but odds are it'll be sluggish as heck and require more horsepower than it should....

Casn't wait for the id3 support.  That is the only reason im using arcade jukebox 7 instead of your program.. its great to just point the program at your mp3 directory and have all of your stuff indexed automatically.

Good work, keep it up!

WinCab will do that now, using the long filenames of the artist foldera and MP3 files; it's only DOSCab that requires a separate indexing step.  Of course, if your music isn't srted into separate folders by artist, that won't help...

I'll defnately need ID3 support when I add an album mode, as that's the only way I know of to get the track order.

Lave Laar:
I wrote a small utility to create index-files from the ID3 tags as I needed it for my setup for my jukebox.  It's a dos-program, but it should work fine in windows as well.  If you want it you can download it here :

When you have too much music, this kind of setup is a pain, because you scrool forever until you find the song you want, yet I don't like the "media player" feel for a cabinet jukebox.
One feature that I would love to see added to WinCab would be the ability to flip through albums (text and cover picture if it's available, kindof like front ends show game snaps), then you can either select the whole album or "open" the album and select a song inside it.
