I was going for a more kind of "constructive criticism" and not trying to flame the author of PC Jukebox (which I'm guessing is you, barcrest?).
**EDIT** maybe not, I have seen your jukebox software Barcrest. Haven't played with it yet, but it does look very promising. Note: I didn't say stuff CAN'T be written to be fast and responsive in VB6, it's just very difficult and time consuming sometimes **/edit**
I did definitely make it a point to say that a lot of work went into it and it did definitely have its uses. I think the reason why it's so apparent to me that it's a vb6 app is beacuse I've written in VB for years, and I'm well aware of the shortcomings of the language (and its strengths). It's just not for me, which is why I'm writing my own.
As far as the questions on the touchscreen jukebox of my own....
Life took over for a bit there, and I was forced to put the project on hold, however I did pick it back up recently. I just recently finished the libraries for ID3V1 and V2 tags (including embedded album art), and for scanning the computer for media. I've also created the design documents and database diagram for the rest of the program, so it's just a matter of implementing the code at this point.
I hope that by October I can release some kind of somewhat stable (although probably not feature complete) version. At least in the beginning however, I'm writing this for ME, so any releases made will be under the category of "If it doesn't work for you, on your computer or hardware or OS, too bad."
If I have more time to really get it beta tested and fix bugs that appear on different OS's, I will later.
I'll keep everyone updated.
