RadioDJ v1.7.7 Released!
« on: January 30, 2015, 05:10:22 PM »
The first version for this year is ready to be tested.  ;D

Changes:

- Added tabs order save [NEW];
- Added new rotation entry type "Tracks From SQL Query" which allows you to manually add rules to the rotation. The query must return the track ID(s) [NEW];
- Added option to set default image when no album art is set for tracks. Put a .jpg file in your album art folder and name it "no_cover_image.jpg". [NEW];
- Removed the tray info window.
- Updated the plugin interface. Added new sub procedure named "Closing()" to the plugins which is called when the program closes. [NEW];
- Updated to the newest BASS sound engine.
- Minor bug fixes.

HOW TO UPDATE FROM THE LATEST VERSION v1.7.6:

A. FILE UPDATE PROCEDURE:

    METHOD 1

    1. Replace ALL .dll files with the new ones (including bass ones);
    2. Replace RadioDJ.exe with the new one;
    3. Add "settings_tabs.xml" to the main folder of RadioDJ;

    METHOD 2

    1. Unzip the new version somewhere on your HDD;
    2. Delete from the new package the settings files (they are named like settings_XXXXX.xml);
    3. Copy all files from the new package over your old files in order to overwrite them;

    ALTERNATE METHOD 3

    1. Replace all the files with the new ones;
    2. Customize the settings for the program/plugins;
   
B. DATABASE UPDATE PROCEDURE

    Backup your database before anything!

    1. Open "Database Setup.exe" (located in Setup folder);
    2. Select "Database Utils" tab and press "SELECT UPDATE FILE" button;
    3. Select "1.7.7 UPDATE FROM  1.7.6.sql" from Sql folder. (Usually: RadioDJ\Setup\Sql);
    4. Confirm the action and you're done.

The database update step is very important, without it the program will crash!

IMPORTANT: Since this version is using newer bass version, old third party plugins (including some encoder) will not work until their authors will update them.

An alternative to the some encoder plugin for RadioDJ can be tested here.

When upgrading, I get this error on start (after the flash-screen):

\bass_plugins\bassflac.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try reinstalling the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

Apparently, this happens on ALL bass-DLL's. Running on Windows 7 x64.

Also, Auto-DJ isn't loading tracks in the queue.. Not sure if it has something to do with the bass-plugins not loading..

That's new :)

Did you replaced all the files?

If the bass plugin are not loading, it's normal that the tracks will not play.  As a test, download the archive as it is and test it with a new database and if everything is fine proceed to the update process.

Funny - installing a fresh install with the current database doesn't give me the bass-errors. Tracks dragged manually in the queue play (as they did with the other installation). But AutoDJ still doesn't load tracks into the queue. I have selected the proper rotation but nothing happens.

Well, apparently, the issue was with one ore more older plugins. After renaming the plugins-folder and copying a fresh one, RadioDJ doesn't crash.

A few questions:

1. Is it possible for a 1.7.6-version to fully operate on the 1.7.7-database?
2. What about the Teaser-plugin?  :hihi:

My default rotation was blank even though it was showing up in the upper right hand corner. I had to rebuild it. After that it started loading songs. All my other rotations are ok.

1. Yes, it should fully work.
2. The plugin is updated for this version (disabled plugins).

It is not available in auto update because it needs a database update also. Please follow the instructions from the first post.
