Pattern Settings Problem

Post by emandell »

Hi

Xrecode appears to be ignoring my pattern when it saves files

My Output Path looks like

M:\Ed\Music

and my Pattern Settings look like this

%albumartist% \%album%\%track2% %title%

But when xrecode creates anything it appears to be ignoring the album artist and using a temporary directory name

for example
M:\Ed\Music\J8J10Q~O\Truth, Liberty & Soul

The Album Artist is populated and the xrecode status message is showing the album artist correctly but the actual files are written to the wrong directory

Any ideas?

I just release new beta version (you can get it like this - viewtopic.php?f=16&t=40). Elements like "% / %, etc. will now be removed from patterns when settings are saved, so that no folders ending or beginning with a space will be created.

Wouldn't it be better to just remove the spaces?
Or better still to just show an error message

It would confuse the hell out of me if you just delete the field

That's exactly what program will do - it will remove the spaces :)
So "%albumartist% \%album%\%track2% %title%" will become "%albumartist%\%album%\%track2% %title%" when saved.
