Bug report

Thanks for this v5.40!

i noticed a few bugs remaining:
-when you start ej the now playing album image is not enlarged to the panel current size.

-it seems, since the latest versions, some skin fonts are not always loaded on skin change. in playlist.dis:
.pmnextsongtop {
font-family: bitsumishi, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
the arial font is loaded instead of bitsumishi.
in songlist.dis:
.artisthide {
font-family:LCD BOLD, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
this time the arial font is loaded instead of LCD BOLD.
weird!

otherwise the shelf3d seems quite fast. i not tried v5.39 with the trick you gave to see the speed improvement?

Audiosoft,

i tried more.. it seems the now playing size problem only occurs with my version of the A5 Vinyl skin. maybe it's related to the ie9 standards?

ok Pirk well that is good. i will test out startup on my next win7 boot.

sorry about putting up so many new versions #'s lately. i kept spotting issues after the speed improvements. they should be fixed now in v5.40 fonts redux ;)

RE: i not tried v5.39 with the trick you gave to see the speed improvement?

how i got the extra speed with the shelf image cache : the cached images are the same. it used to check if the image was square and under the resolution supported by the shelf 2800x2800...if not it created a re-sized image. then it detected the resized cached image so it didn't need to do the square image check.
That is all the same. The problem was when the image was already square and didn't need to make a re-sized image it would check again if the image was square every time those were loaded in the shelf. with v5.39 it logs these already square image locations to memory and saves a log of them on shutdowns and loads the log at startup. This allows EJ to always skip the square image checks after they already have been performed once for the image in v5.39+. This makes the shelf and the songlist/shelf load faster with less disk activity...it is the same slower speed for ONLY the Very First time the image is loaded in the shelf in v5.39+. no extra cached images are created.

in my case the now playing image is not enlarged each time i run ej using my ie9 skin. i think my problem is not related to the win7 boot.

thanks a lot for all these explanations, and for your continuous work on ejukebox!
a lot of images are cached for ejukebox. albumlist and now for the shelf! i suppose that all these cached images are still deletable if i clear the iexplorer cache? i don't want to delete the cached images, but sometimes it can be useful after i messed up my db...

Pirk,

nothing changed with the # of images cached.
it doesn't cache any images for the shelf unless the original full size image is over 2800x2800 or not square. otherwise it uses the same original art file. the speed difference now is EJ now only does the square image check 1 time instead of every time. The cache is really intelligent and should not be messed with. My advice is EJukebox will handle it so don't mess with it. The non-lookup image cache is cleared on database rebuild.

RE:

no but IE9 only works on Win7 for me :P
i will have to try it on IE9 myself.
-the only thing i changed recent in now playing was getting rid of default line-height: 14px; in the album title.

v5.41 is up! :o

there was a problem with cover art import in db setup with v5.36-v5.40. :(

If you see allot of repeating incorrect album covers and
you setup, rebuilt or added new files to the database with v5.36-v5.40 then do Tools->Update Music Database->Rebuild Database to fix it.

Audiosoft, could you add a way to center the TEXT vertically in [MainButtons] and [Songlist Title] adding offset values +/- (Top=) in colors.ini? Because the fonts are not always centered or even cut!

Thanks.

The album list and startup time in 5.43 seems pretty snappy.
So far I like it.
