[SOLVED] Link files with the same name and reflect the name changes to them

Post by 1024mb »

I don't know how feasible this is but I really wanted to know if it could be done/implemented for quite some time.

Please, can you add a feature to link files and perform the same actions to them which basically is only the renaming.
I will explain. Lets say we have these files:

A Song Is Here.flac
A Song Is Here.lrc
A Song Is Also Here.flac
A Song Is Also Here.lrc

Now, after reencoding/copying you have set the files to be renamed to this pattern: %track%. %title% so the flac and lrc files would end up like this:

01. A Song Is Here.flac
02. A Song Is Also Here.flac
A Song Is Here.lrc
A Song Is Also Here.lrc

The lrc files keep their original filenames and are copied to the destination dir with those filenames. This is obviously implying we have set the lrc files to be copied to the destination folder on the XR settings.
It would be great if XR could have an option to also rename the files that originally had the same filenames as the audio files so we can end up with:

01. A Song Is Here.flac
01. A Song Is Here.lrc
02. A Song Is Also Here.flac
02. A Song Is Also Here.lrc

I don't know with what other file types this could apply so if an option to set specific file extensions to perform this is preferred I have no objections.

Thanks.

Here's the update to try - https://xrecode.com/test/setup_xrecode3 ... _1.103.exe
It is currently hard-coded to handle the .lrc files only.

Wow, thanks for working on this. I will test this as soon as I can and report back.

Finally I was able to test this, had a problem with one hard drive.
This is working great, thank you!
