  2. Thank you guys; hopefully eventually we can add proper audiobook support. It's probably a fair ways out though, as there's a bunch of things I'd like to add for music first.
  3. Apart from creating new views, playback isn't all that different, though you'd have to store the track and time position by default. There's also the .m4b format, which is an aac file with embedded chapter data. Then there's DAISY, which is a whole other kettle of fish. I'd kind of like audiobook support, too, at some point. Right now I use Audiobookedfor that, which is fine, but it's a bit buggy at times.
  4. i have some audiobooks i like to add but i like to keep it separate from my music i have dummyed up some pics for a nice setup https://imgur.com/a/W9EwvSI pic one would be how to keep the separated just a simple dropdown taging this folder as music or audio next one is a dummy audiobook page tabs needed are author title publisher and series i only made a author pic but i hope you like my moke up as you can see there is a pic of the author with their name a bit about them scraped from wikipedia along with the birth date and age (need to be programed in to convert) and if dead then death date as well as a quote from them if listed in wikipedia and alone side their pic would be books scarped in side mba showing some booked by them that are in the app as for how my audio books are they are just plane mp3s i have upload pics of some audio books folder setup as sample for you
  5. Hi Astrysa, unfortunately this means that those songs don't have titles in the file tags (which basically means that no one put the song names on the files when ripping them). I have a version coming out shortly that will let you modify the file tags, which should help.
  6. Thanks @quantock, all good stuff here. Much of it is definitely planned already, but I've noted all the new ideas.
  7. Hi there. I have been intrigued by Music Box Alpha since hearing about it as I love Launchbox and what it's done for my emulation experience. I recently decided to begin upgrading my entire music collection to Uncompressed FLAC as I finally have the storage capacity to make that reasonable. I figured what a great opportunity to load everything into Music Box Alpha as I upgrade/tag/organize everything. After using it for a bit now I wanted to share my thoughts.. I understand MBA is still very early in development and many suggestions have already been mentioned and added to the list, but I think there are some fresh new ideas here as well: - Would much rather have albums order chronologically... currently they seem to only display alphabetically . - When in song view, organizing by album should have tracks listed in track # order. Currently I can't even tell what secondary variable they are being ordered by.. Play Count? - Right clicking a file/album and have a "Go to folder" or "Open Folder location in Explorer" etc. option would be nice ! - Hovering over an album to give a floating Play/Pause option on top of the album art (maybe next & previous track as well) - A Total song/album count at bottom/somewhere would be nifty - Selecting a new song seems to be noticeably slow (2-3 full seconds). Not sure if this is due to me using FLAC files which are bigger to load/accessing them over my NAS but I don't seem to notice a delay when using any other media player Bonus Ideas: - Launchbox includes a way to explore tons of artwork & manuals for game releases.. MBA should include a way to view album art, inside & liner notes, the media itself (Vinyl/CD), alternative release artwork etc. - Loading screens have recently been added to Launchbox which include a spinning CD when the image is available. It would be amazing if there was an option to display a little CD player/Record player in the bottom corner (where album art is currently shown) which would spin with the scan of the physical media when available while the disc is playing. Something similar to the Dreamcast's CD player but from a top down view: Anyways, the ideas are generally listed in order of importance/estimated ease of implementing to more aesthetic/non essential but cool. Keep up the good work!
  8. It's fine and I'm glad to hear you're working on it. I can understand your situation. Thanks for the feedback.
  9. I have tag editing in the works and nearly completed and that will be out soon. After that the plan is to get playlists going. The sad fact of the matter is that my audience for MBA is much smaller than my audience for LaunchBox. I would love to devote more time to MBA, but as the audience is smaller, it's difficult to devote more time than I currently am. I'm sorry you're disappointed; I can offer you a refund if you'd rather just move on. Regardless, MBA development will continue at least at it's current rate; I use it for my own music collection (and I find it priceless), so my interest in it is not going away. We have a large enough audience to certainly make it worthwhile as well, but I have to be fair and devote a proportionate amount of time to each project.
  10. Has been almost an year since I've purchased MBA and I have to say that I'm somewhat disappointed with the overall experience. I guess I thought I'd have the same experience that I have with LaunchBox. Although I understand it's currently at Alpha stage, the gap between releases is very sparse, the amount of content that's implemented is very low and not as helpful as one would want/expect, and the lack of information regarding where it is heading and the forum is way too quiet. I'm currently not using MBA as my main player but I'm constantly checking the forums and the software for news and updates. Maybe if you would provide us a roadmap or something to look up to would ease our minds (mine at least). Thank you and I'm sorry about the rant.
  11. I actually have tag editing implemented, sans for a couple of bugs, so it'll be out soon.
  12. I joined the board to make this feature request but someone beat me to it.
  13. Hi Michelle, good to know. I'm not sure how feasible that is currently, but I'll look into it.
  14. Hey Jason =) I'm already a premium user on Launchbox, and this looks amazing! so... VST support is everything to me, I already know you'll make it look awesome! but yeah... I'm using foobar cause it's about the only music app that works with VST plugins.
  15. when you have it up and running an app for roku would be cool too where you can connect to your pc as a server

    Making THemes?

    Well then, I'll give it a try. How's the next release shaping up, anyway?

    Making THemes?

    It's essentially the same as making LaunchBox themes, but I don't have any real documentation on it yet. You can just copy the Default folder and then change stuff in the XAML files, and then select the new folder name in the options.

    Making THemes?

    I notice that MBA has a theme selector, but there's only the default one there. Do you have any documentation on how to build themes? I'd like to give it a go.
  19. Replying to this one again because I ran into another one. This time, no matter how many times I try I can't get past this step.

  20. no problem jason.... thank you for your effect and willingness to develop this. this will be my go to music app.
  21. Thank you Dan. Unfortunately there still isn't but it is high up on my list. I currently have metadata editing in the works and I'll probably have shuffle/repeat in there as well before the next version.
