FoF - Song Manager 3.24

Postby TypusMensch » Fri Feb 08, 2008 6:15 pm

A standalone program to manage your FoF songs.

Available for Windows, Linux, Mac and (Open)Solaris...

### Download:

Share-Online: FoF - Song Manager 3.24
File-Upload: FoF - Song Manager 3.24
Brothersoft: FoF - Song Manager 3.24

### Information:

The program differ between "Song Directory Functions" and "Tracklist Functions". "Song Directory Functions" works over the complete selected song directory. "Tracklist Functions" work only over tracks these are display in the table. For example, you search for "red", the progam found tracks from "Red Hot Chilli Peppers". With "Tracklist Functions" you can now e.g. delete the highscore only over this tracks.

What is "Create Artist Collection"? First the function "Create Artist Collection" is a "Tracklist Function". Click on it and select a (new empty) directory. Now the program creates in this directory folders with the following names: "0-9", "A", "B", "C", "D" and so on. Now the program copys all tracks in the table in this selected directory under the special folder (e.g. "Red Hot Chilli Peppers" goes into folder "R"). Under it there was created a directory with the songname and here are your files (song.ini, song.ogg, guitar.ogg, ...) now. So you get a copy from all your music in your table sorted by artistnames. Maybe you want to hold beside your GH-, PH- and whatever packs also a folder with this structure. For instructions please read this tutorial.

I don't know if you wanted comments here or on the site but I have some in case you are looking here:

I thought it would be a cool program but I immediately found that it does not support song "collections" through subfolders. Looks like it has a lot of cool features, though. If you could make it support "collections" I will try it again and tell you what I think.

Updated to 1.10:

- works now recursive (collections/subfolders)
- new infos (frets, cassette-color, ...)
- new delete-options
- subtitle/lyrics-options

1.1 is much better. I will use it when I have more time.

One problem I noticed is the mouse cursor stays as an hourglass (busy) after you load the tracklist. It might have something to do with an error reading one of the PNG files.

very good program, I think I'm gonna use it a lot...
some sugestions:
When you delete scores the program dosen't delete scores_drum and scores_rhythm.
You could have some kind of color picker that you could pick cassettecolor from the label.png

Update to 1.2:
- tracklist loads really faster (!!!)
- program close faster
- automaticly save changes (need no more reload)
- deletes also scores_rhythm & scores_drum
- add a color picker (external program)

Direct Link now at the top of the thread here...

@NewCreature: maybe a corruped png? the programm now loads the png only when you clicked on a track, so the tracklist should load normal without an error.

Oh, i forget. Plz don't double-click on a track. it will be load/start the titel directly in FoF (perhabs only with RF-mod), but there is a bug... i don't know why.....

RF-mod-Examples.txt says:
start a track with command line:
fretsonfire.exe -p A\Anthrax\Anthrax - Madhouse

so it should be load... but however. i see only an error :(

THREAD: Start in Command Line

hint: sry for bad english ^^

EDIT:
error found. he don't like space (" "). i write a function to convert space into underline ("_") in all directories. so in the next version you can start FoF simple (normal start) or a selected song directly from song manager.

I haven't tried this yet, but I think it'd be nice if it had a song preview where when you have a song highlighted, you can press a button that says preview and it will play the first 20 secs of the song.

QFT!!!

Never thought of that,but that would be awesome. It would be even awesomer (it's a word now) if you could save that video file. Then you could add previews to all your songs on youtube!

For some reason I cannot extract the file. Could you upload it as a .rar on Media Fire, please?

Yeah, that play song.ogg was what I meant, but hey the ingame preview would be nice too, not saying you have to do it.
