*if you use these put them under the existing [Shutdown] heading in ejukebox.ini. Make sure you only have only one [Shutdown] heading.

Well I hope you guys like Shelf3D. Rather than charge everyone extra for the advanced Shelf3D features as an addon I have decided to make them free for all eJukebox Pro users. I spent a ton of time on this so if you really like it and have cash to spare feel free to order an extra license or donate to payment@audiosoft.net with paypal. I would really appreciate it!

Have fun and let me know what you think!

Thanks Pirk! Have fun with all the new options!
BTW I have been using it with Crimson 2.1 and that background I suggested for a couple weeks now! One of these days we will get around to making some new skins right? I was thinking I would totally redo SilverTunez or EJ Remix with pngs like crimson 2.1 uses. It would require IE7 but most people have that now...right?

Have made like Audiosoft says?

To install: Shutdown eJukebox and download the attached file. Copy the downloaded file over your old C:\Program Files\eJukebox\ejukebox.exe

Grifling,

The attached file is not an installer. If you have not installed eJukebox yet you need to first download and run the eJukebox v4.9 Full Installer found here: http://www.audiosoft.net/download.htm

Then to install the beta you must manually copy over/replace the ejukebox.exe in C:\Program Files\eJukebox\ejukebox.exe with the file attached in the first post.

Wow! O.K. ... But wow! This looks great and has potential... and yes - i need to edit the blacklight-skin.

Here a quick-and-dirty-solution. ;-)

Keep up the good work, audiosoft...

And now excuse me... I have to play (with) something. :D

Thanks, pirk.

But I only used the nowplaying-background. If it is not "dirty" ... in any case it was "quick" :)

...and taking a good look in the screen-shot, I see some work on the details.

BTW: I just tested the Shelf3D at 800x600 pixels: Forget it! No chance. Absolutely not practical.
1024 x 786 is the minimum to use this feature.
I think, I don't look for a 800x600-Touchscreen at ebay anymore.

I agree, sure 800x600 that is now definitively too much cramped.. That was perfect for eJ 2.xx versions in 2003!

I disagree fellas!
Ok, I may be biased because I have an 800*600 touchscreen and don't want to spend the money upgrading - LOL!

But:
The coverflow display could be resized within the skin to around the same size as the carousel and work perfectly well.
Don't give up on the 800*600 yet please guys!!

Audiosft - love the new display - but I have some suggestions for the future:

1 - Tie the cover display to the album list instead of the artist list. The reason I say this, is that by pinning it to the artist list, there are a lot of compilations coming up before the true artist list - which I find undesirable. Maybe Compilations could be listed after "z"?

2 - At the moment, whatever letter is pressed will only display albums by the letter of that artist. Would it be possible to have the letter pressed as the starting point, but be able to actually scroll through the entire album list?

3 - The home view currently shows no albums at startup. A letter has to be pressed before any covers display. Could either the top 10, 20 or 40 albums show on home view - or even all albums as per request (2)?

4 - Lastly, and I guess probably difficult to program, could the album covers rotate after say 30 seconds of idling as per the carousel?

That's my 2 penneth - I don't ask much do I??!! - LOL!

But seriously, great work Audiosoft!!

SimonC, I think I can do all of your requests.
For sure beta 2 will have an option somewhere to set/change the height of Shelf3D to however many pixels you want. That way it can align good on 800x600.

Not sure if anybody else has problems but version 5 crashes like crazy for me. I can't even play a song or search for a song without Ejukebox crashing without an error. Went back to 4.9 and it works fine again.

OK, I understand that 800x600 is still used on touchscreens.. You are not the first to say that! ;)

Otherwise, all your suggestions are good, and necessary! Thanks.

memory usage

I haven't downloaded this yet as I need to set up my Jukebox PC, but a couple of quick questions -

1 - does the new carousel shelf use much more memory / processor? - I have it on a reasonably low powered PC.

2 - If it does take up more, can it be switched off?

Thanks! Screens look fantastic!!!

mchawk,

I am working on allowing shelf3d settings to be loaded from individual skins. I will let you know which file to edit when it is ready.

Well_Jaggy,

RE: does the new carousel shelf use much more memory / processor? - I have it on a reasonably low powered PC.

CPU usage should actually be less with Shelf3D since it does not rotate like the carousel.
If you uncheck "Run in Ram" consumption will be very low and it will use around the same amount as the carousel.
If you enable "Run in Ram" it will use about double the carousel because the images are twice as big.

RE: If it does take up more, can it be switched off?

Yes, just uncheck "Use Shelf3D" under the display options and it goes back to the old carousel.

Audiosoft,

eJukebox disappears (shuts down) whenever I try and perform a search. Running on XP machine.

Any progress with the zero song length or sorting of "the" artists bugs?

Can confirm what Blackcat says above, exits for me if you try and do a search.

Small problem -

when I load up v 5 beta1 (shows in the splash), the shelf 3d is enabled and I get a grey screen where the image should be. I have tried to right click on it to paste in the link, but it does not do anything, there is no response to right click). what I have noticed though is that when it loads, my task bar still has ejukebox 4.91 in showing. any ideas?

It's only a Beta version...

RE: eJukebox disappears (shuts down) whenever I try and perform a search. Running on XP machine.

I am on XP and am having trouble reproducing this. What skin are you guys using? Does this happen no matter the skin? Same when from the virtual keyboard and not? any search input does this only when shelf3D is enabled? help me track this down.

blackcat,
I believe the only thing that could cause zero song length in the playlist would be if your media files have the hidden file attribute or are in a hidden folder. Am I right? I am looking into the THE resort issue with the album list and shelf3d a-z. I should be able to get that working good for shelf3d but the Album list might be to complex to rework without tripling the time it takes to load. It is a pretty complex thing to ignore THE. I was able to pull it off with the artist list but on both artists and albums it may be too cpu/memory hungry. I will look it over again and see what can be done.

Well_Jaggy,
This is how the beta versions will show up....
splash - taskbar
v5 beta 1 - 4.91
v5 beta 2 - 4.92 (edit: still reads 4.91)
v5 beta 3 - 4.93
you get the idea...so only 5.0 final will say 5.0 on the exe and taskbar. This way the new version check can detect a difference when 5.0 final comes out.

RE: screenshot with grey screen
Hmm...Does it stay like that screenshot or do the albums come up after you list some songs?

yeah, I know its only beta. kind of why I thought I would highlight this.

Audiosoft, when I click on albums, the 3d shelf dissapears altogether and uses the whole right hand side for the album list(it also did this with carousel), and even when I go back to home, it does not re-appear and all the other info like top 10 songs, top 10 artest etc moves to the top of the screen. (also did this with carousel).

I kind of figured that the version numbering may be like that, but I thought I would mention it just in case.

I use win xp SP2.

Well_Jaggy,

Yes when you open the full album list it hides shelf3d. It is supposed to do that. You need to x close the album list to use shelf3d. BTW Beta 1 does not load any images in shelf3d on startup/home view yet. that will change soon. my question was do you always get that grey screen or does shelf3d start working when the album list is closed and you view a song list?

It seems that eJukebox 4.91 crash each time you search something that does'nt exist in the database. You can try to search for "3000" or "qwerty" for instance..

I also noticed that eJ starts a lot faster since this beta. That's great!
