Thanks for this update Audiosoft.

still not working for me the update server!?


Pirk - 2-22-2011 at 05:06 PM

well i don't know who have made the new ejukebox icon? ;) but in win7 it is not looking so great than expected! :o
PS: it seems it's still the old cached version(?) i will see later.


Audiosoft - 2-22-2011 at 05:10 PM

Just tested it and live update works good here.
Has it ever said it found a new version on yours?
also interesting about the icon....
does it look better on the ejukebox.exe in explorer thumbnail view?


Pirk - 2-22-2011 at 05:16 PM

you are right, since i use ejukebox it NEVER said it found a new version. weird!


Pirk - 2-22-2011 at 05:26 PM

the new icon works good in explorer:

Besides the shield..


Pirk - 2-22-2011 at 05:48 PM

well the only place i can see the new ejukebox.exe extra large icon is in my dock where i added a new item. it's the bigger one on this screenshot: unfortunately it seems the full resolution is not used(?)


Pirk - 2-22-2011 at 06:05 PM

i just tested your new exe, but still no success with the live update server. Thanks.


Pirk - 2-22-2011 at 06:25 PM

if i turn my windows 7 desktop to "large icons" the ejukebox icon is not fully enlarged:


Audiosoft - 2-22-2011 at 06:48 PM

does it show large when with a shortcut -> ejukebox.exe instead of ejukebox.exe??

new version check should work for all with this one ;)

well i still get: "error connecting to the update server, please try again later" Thanks.


Audiosoft - 2-23-2011 at 01:43 AM

with this exe does the ej icon appears at higher resolution on Win7?

let me know if it detects a new version and automatically downloads? also please copy the text from the debugger window and post it here.


crlove - 2-23-2011 at 02:12 AM

My auto update downloaded and updated to 5.53


Pirk - 2-23-2011 at 12:50 PM

"with this exe does the ej icon appears at higher resolution on Win7?"
well yes and no: when ejukebox.exe is renamed (any other name) the ej icon appears at higher resolution, but as soon as i name it normally "ejukebox.exe" the icon size is reduced instantaneously! weird.


Pirk - 2-23-2011 at 01:07 PM

"let me know if it detects a new version and automatically downloads? also please copy the text from the debugger window and post it here."
i think yes, this time when i go to Tools -> Check for new version, i get this:
then it downloaded and installed the update..


Pirk - 2-23-2011 at 01:15 PM

"does it show large when with a shortcut -> ejukebox.exe instead of ejukebox.exe??"
no:


Pirk - 2-23-2011 at 01:26 PM

now the new icon looks good in the win7 menu bar. :cool:
but it is still anormally pixelated in my "dock". enlarged from low res, probably..


Audiosoft - 2-23-2011 at 09:39 PM

ok thanks Pirk for the debug
your windows localization settings must use a comma instead of a decimal point for numbers so the isnumeric check was failing on the new version # "5.33"
anyways live update will work regardless of localization setting for your v5.54!


Pirk - 2-23-2011 at 10:47 PM

all right thank you Audiosoft.


Pirk - 2-24-2011 at 12:51 PM

Thanks Audiosoft for the final exe.. you avoided that i complain again about that for the next update! :)
so i can try to make a new icon for EJ? then i could replace the current icon myself, or only you can do that?

Many thanks for this icon editor. you've found what I was looking for. it looks very nice, "a la photoshop"! ;)


Audiosoft - 2-24-2011 at 12:57 PM

your welcome!
RE: so i can try to make a new icon for EJ? then i could replace the current icon myself, or only you can do that?

only i can change the exe icon. the good thing is now it only requires a change to 1 line of code. so if you want a special icon on your exe i can do it.


Pirk - 2-24-2011 at 01:16 PM

"so if you want a special icon on your exe i can do it": OK thanks. i hope that if my icon looks very good you will use it for the official download! or maybe you could make that a skinned icon can be included in user skins?


Pirk - 2-24-2011 at 01:22 PM

you have not solved why the full res icon is not used (on the win7 desktop in particular) for ejukebox.exe unless if renamed?


Audiosoft - 2-24-2011 at 01:23 PM

hmmm try temporarily renaming the C:EJukeboxejukebox.manifest file and then see if the exe icon shows big.


Fishy - 2-24-2011 at 10:40 PM

Pirk, fyi I have exact the same problems with the auto update.


Pirk - 2-25-2011 at 11:45 AM

Fishy, great! ;) if you download ejukebox.exe "v5.53 final" from this forum normally the auto update has been fixed. we will see for v5.54..

Audiosoft, i don't know if the Update should be really "auto" each time ej loads or only begins when we start it manually from ej?
otherwise my ejukebox.manifest is already renamed but the exe icon don't show big. thanks.
[EDIT] restarting my PC fixed the icon on the win7 desktop... so now the big icon is only degraded in my dock. probably it don't take the biggest icon, i don't know why?


Audiosoft - 2-25-2011 at 08:22 PM

Check this out! the PNG Stars on the main now playing and album popup now animate with the mouse position!
also the main stars now only detect a rating click over the top bar area. this prevents clicking the star's png shadow from changing the rating when you are really trying to click the now playing artist text.

if you have stars that go under the top 37 pixels and you want the non-transparent png pixels there still to set the rating when clicked...you can add this in nowstarslayout.ini
[UnderBarClick]
Allow=1


Pirk - 2-25-2011 at 09:46 PM

Wow excellent Audiosoft! i was dreaming of this feature since a long time... Thanks a lot. :)


Audiosoft - 2-26-2011 at 01:11 AM

thought you might like that! :D

trying to get back in the skinning mood...what do you think of the top bar in this screen? is it good color and lines? thinking about starting a new skin with this top or making this the new default vinyl top.


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 12:11 PM

maybe better with these colors?


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 12:15 PM

... or then like that:


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 05:25 PM

I've just made a new icon for EJ! Do you like it?


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 06:00 PM

...


Audiosoft - 2-26-2011 at 07:53 PM

:o cool reflection in the icon! it is better! does it scale down to smaller sizes well?

the blue seemed lonely at the top...so i decided to make a new full skin. below is a screen of how it looks on day 2. i do like those alternate colors for the top in your screens! maybe can make versions with those after i finish this...


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 08:56 PM

It's beautiful Audiosoft! i would like to be able to make skins so fast than you.. :cool:

Here is another version of the icon only:


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 09:16 PM

RE: does it scale down to smaller sizes well? not too bad
Here is the last one in size 32:


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 09:22 PM

the same icon in size 256:


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 09:30 PM

still the same icon, in the dock, at rest:


Pirk - 2-26-2011 at 10:08 PM

and now... the icon with the moon! :o


Audiosoft - 2-27-2011 at 06:03 PM

Day 3


Audiosoft - 2-27-2011 at 06:09 PM

above includes an artistlist.dis Artistrow span{} that overlays a png track. the png works without needing an advanced height: expression() so the artist list stays fast!

.Artistrow span
{
height:50px;
width: 316px;
margin-top:-8px;
left:0px;
background:transparent;
background-position:left top;
background-repeat:repeat;
background-image:url(artistrowspan.png);
padding-right:150px;
}


Pirk - 2-27-2011 at 07:48 PM

i like much your artistlist. quick well done! we immediately see the professional.. ;)

Regis est un con :D
