Use English Please!!!

Not Blank (Leertaste), use Backspace (Lösch-Taste! <--)

Updates are only recognized, if there ARE any updates. You have the newest version, what should the program tell you? "I'm Up-To-Date!" or what ?

The Skin System is an other then this, that WE have used for the Mods. But Corvus told to that you can convert them within one minute.
@Corvus: Maybe you could explain, how to do that, please?

For Covers you have to use the Cover.ini (don't think, that this is a good idea. Just checking the JPG-Names would be easier and works too (look at our Mod). And if it would works for ALL Sorting types at the same time would be easier, too.)

So I'll have to have 10 copies of singstar.jpg to support all language versions of one singstar edition? That's no good.

No. Just check the Cover-Directory after the filenames. Then you have:

SingStar German.jpg
SingStar UK.jpg
SingStar Sweden.jpg
SingStar Rocks UK.jpg
SingStar Rocks Ger.jpg
Metal.jpg
English-Songs.jpg
Pop.jpg
...
(for example)

Now UltraStar just reads all JPG-Names and if there is ANY TAG (Edition or Folder or whatsoever) with the same name as the JPG, it uses this JPG.

So anyone can make his cover very flexible and individual.

for example: If someone has a folder NEW, and adds a cover named NEW.jpg. It will work.

With this method, the cover.ini wont be needed anymore (don't know what good this should be?) and noone will have problems with it. Just copy a JPG with the same Name of your Edition (or Folder or Language or Genre...) and it works. Very Easy ;-)

I hope this was understandable. You can see it at the Mod http://forum.ultra-star.de/viewtopic.php?t=2009 If you want, we could even send you the SourceCode for this...

Bye,
BG

Hi, another bug. The Midi-->TXT Converter doesnt work. I can see the "Convert Midi to TXT" text and "Exit". But no Background picture for this two writings. If I select one of them, I come to the "Open" "Save".. Dialog, but no Background Pictures and Midi-Tracks...

Skins are ready but not available for public yet.

I said what if want to have the same cover for Singstar, Singstar Spanish, Singstar German, Singstar Itialian, Singstar French, etc?

Aaaahhh!

Then you have to take the same cover 10 times... But I think, that it's better to use the JPG-Direct Ordering function instead of another ini-File that causes problems for the users...

(I've just installed Windows Vista Final. It seems like UltraStar works without any problems. I will test this out tomorrow ;-))

Maybe I´m too stupid, what I can´t belive, but on my machine an others too the covers for genres and folders don´t work. I also tried language and it also didn´t work.

Hope you fix it soon an add suport for language covers,
Marzel

I have problems with making covers for the sorting by genre and folders, too. Seems not to work.
But for sorting by edition it works well.

PS: Thanks for the new version.

I just checked the random-function ("r") some minutes ago and it seemed to me the songs appeared in the order as yesterday. It reminded me on the forgotten "Randomise;" when I used Dephi some years ago. Any others the same experience?

If the girl who isn´t my girlfriend wears two days in an row the same clothes I notice it. But if I remember the order of the songs created by the random function is arguable :lol: I´ll test it out and write you the result tomorrow ;)

Maybe it depends on the song/pesition at which you start the random function!?

Greetings,
Marzel

Just start the game, press "r" several times, exit the game, start it again, do the same and check the order.
