I think "Sort by Filename" does that already. That was fixed in 2.7, IIRC.

Also, I'd like to bring this back to discussion:

Also, could Ian or someone else with the ability make a standalone .SVP for the built-in Spectrum and 3-D Spectrum? I like the way those look, and would love to include those in my Rappa list. :)

Oh! So it seems :idea:. But then there isn't a 'sort by filename' without the dir structure ???.

Perhaps a very tiny suggestion could still make it to the 2.8? When starting to play a random song, the view would move to where the song is in the list. This would be especially useful in bigger lists.

[edit]Oh, I just came up with another little suggestion: In the playlist right-click menu, a new item, "clear queue".

Hitting Scroll Lock (should) produces this effect. It's in the manual, IIRC.

Scroll Lock does it for the small playlist, and I remember Ian saying that the big playlist is meant to be used as a playlist manager, and it would get a tad annoying if the list scrolled up and down when song changes just while you're moving a huge heap of files and so on. =)

A few things which have been mostly mentioned before, but little refresh can't hurt ;)

- when encountering a dead file, pick another random song, not just stop playing on the dead file
- xmp should remember when the 'subfolders' is selected on the 'Add dir' window (have to check the box every time now, ecch :P)
- remember when the scroll lock has been on when xmplay closes, and switch it on when opening next time, if off? =)

I have few modules too which fail in a way or another in XMP (some crash, some just jam), but I can't apparently send any files from this comp.. =/
I'll be back on it when I can though.

Yes, I meant the big playlist, and I only meant it for random songs. Perhaps we should have an option to choose, if the playlist moves? Anyway, the "clear queue" option would be useful, no matter what ;).

Jacer, there is a right-click menu in 'loop list' button, where you can choose if the playback stops on a dead track :).

Hmm..

v Loop List

v Auto advance

   Unload final track

That's what I have.. I might be missing something or you have a betatesting version or similar ;)

Oh yes, I actually seem to have an early beta, 2.703. I have the same options, except I have "stop at dead track" included, so apparently it's already done :).
