I thought this would have popped up sooner or later anyway, and I had a few ideas in my mind too, so here it is
.I also collected some noteworthy ideas from some recent topics. Just slap me silly, if I missed something important
People who posted in "Tabbed playlist" thread seemed to be all go-go for this, and I've been brawling about it for way too long anyway
. "If you don't like 'em, don't use 'em!"
This is mainly to combat Foobar2000 obviously. I haven't had much use for it myself, though, but perhaps I'd start to use it if it was in my favourite player. Also, would be nice to be able to "replaygain" files then, like in fb2k.
-OR function support for Find Tracks.
Jace's little suggestion.
-Always a help bubble on song change in tray
Ralesk's idea. Could be optional too
-A separate streaming buffer setting
-More equalizer bands
Previously, this would have forced considerable changes to the GUI, but now that there's the new options dialog, some more bands could be added painlessly.
-Support for Protracker 3.61 mods
Requested by Fraggie.
-Ability to add user defined gaps between tracks
Guest Burn-X's suggestion. Would be useful in MD recordings for example.
-Option to auto-scroll the playlist to currently playing song
Alexsource's idea. With scroll lock on, this works in the small playlist, but it'd be nice to have it in the big playlist too, and also it to have its own switch in options dialog.
-Add a link for support site to the left frame of the page
Not really a suggestion for the player, but anyway.. I think it's a good idea, so that people would find their way there more easily - especially now that Keltic has made many improvements again
-Option to only show full seconds in timer
...which reminded me of
Several people have suggested this over time and I see no reason why it shouldn't be added.An "undo" button for list editing
Sometimes you wish you hadn't removed the bunch of tracks from the list
Now, let's just see how soon Ian gets off from developing BASS, and getting these done
. Comments about these and of course other new suggestions are welcome.
Already fulfilled suggestions
I think sometimes, especially with big playlists, it'd be nice to see what has been played recently. Showing something like 10-20 last played tracks would be nice.
I think Ian was going to add some more of them anyway, but oh well.
-Select all in playlist.
Would be nice. Ctrl+a is probably most logical, as it's that in Explorer too.
-Add the contents of "auto-load settings" button to options dialog too
-Fade on end of tracks
"Would work brilliantly with such modules that are meant to be looped, but you don't want to loop them more than once (Auto-loop + Only once). This used to be a feature in 1.x, now it's not.
-DSP plugin support
Almost forgot this one. Of course everyone would like to have support for Winamp's DSP plugins, no?
At the moment, XMPlay is always on top, only while in mini mode. A basic switch would be nice.
-A chance to see the length of selected tracks
By right-clicking a group of tracks, for example.
