EAC V1.0 beta2 is out now for several months. Any chance REACT2 gets updated to work with the latest version of EAC?I am still happily using my prebeta5 from over 2 years ago, but some of the new EAC features look appealing to me like for example:
+ Cover support, can be drag’n'dropped from a file, a web page oder can be retrieved via a metadata plugin (support included in the freedb plugin). Cover can be written into tags or in the extraction directory
+ AccurateRip v2 support
I am just curious if I should be watching out for an REACT2 upgrade in the foreseeable future.
I believe that this program has been abandoned by Akkurat. Hr hasn't done anything since EAC1 was first released, but is still active on HA complaining about CueTools.
Quote from: Tronar on 20 September, 2011, 08:58:05 AM+ AccurateRip v2 supportCan be used with current REACT with CUETools. You need to edit the configs a bit but it works (I've had that for ages in my custom REACT script). I agree that it would be better to have it in the EAC itself. But you're not missing anything now.
I think that the Album Art Downloader XUI, which works with REACT, is far superior of getting cover art. And it (combination of XUI & REACT) writes cover art to tags and/or to the folder.

Last time I hinted that I could have time to tinker with REACT in the summer, but after my house move in the beginning of the year, my life has changed somewhat and I do not have the same time available for my computer hobby anymore as I did earlier. That said, I have NOT abandoned REACT, I really WANT to make the next version. All I can say now is that it's in the future. Not in this fall (at least not releasing anything.. I might slowly do something in the background). So don't wait up, but don't lose faith either.
[REACT is] an interim application that provides a scripting facility to call multiple encoders or pre-/post-encoding applications to process the WAVE files created by EAC, or the files created by the script itself. In short, REACT allows you to run multiple tasks on the audio extracted, instead of only one.REACT is designed to work only with whole album extraction/ripping.REACT integrates with Exact Audio Copy, adding some hotkeys combinations to access often used functions more quickly. It will also alter the default name for image files according to your INI settings, and close the extraction dialogue in order for the logfile to be created and used from within your script. It can auto-configure EAC, updating the external compression options so that EAC is ready to run REACT immediately. This feature is extremely useful for novice users.

Okay, so I'm generally not this stupid, but I just can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. Please forgive me for not reading through 70+ pages of posts, but I'm at the point where I'm going to break stuff!I'm running Windows Vista. I have installed both EAC 99 prebeta 5 & react2 & Akkurat's mod package. I have followed the instructions from the React 2, EAC plug in post.I can get EAC to rip (my legal) CD's to my hard drive, but I cannot figure out how to get React2 to also rip mp3's. I keep getting wav files instead. I tried playing with the ini file, but it did not help. I've got the EAC in it's own folder and React2 in it's own folder - should they be combined? I know that you need to add the react.exe to the EAC folder, but I don't know if all files should be there or just that one.Ready to tear my hair out and I'm sure it's something very simple.Also, when my flac is ripped, my computer shows it as a mp3 file type in the type column in the music folder - is that normal? It would not play until I installed a flac player, but I don't want to go through ripping my media collection to find out I've screwed something up.My next question is, when mp3's are ripped, is all data taken from the original cd, or do I have to make changes to the information I want attached to it. I know with EAC, you can customize how the tracks are ripped and that they do not hold too much information. Basically, I would like to see the rips from EAC + React2 extracted like you would get when you rip a cd to your computer via windows media player, but again, not sure how to do this either - although I admit that I haven't gotten that far on this as I can't get mp3's to begin with. And do both flac and mp3's rip to the same folder (when you get it working that is)?PLEASE, PLEASE HELP!!!![/s]
I have not been able to get EAC & React2 to work together.
IF @CreatePlaylist@==1 @tools@\tag.exe --playlist --sort track --plname "$artist$ - $album$.m3u" *.flac
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Exact Audio Copy\REACT2\Tools\tag.exe" "S:\FLAC\*\*\*.flac" --recursive --playlist --sort track --plname "artist - album.m3u" --overwrite
REACT works great on eac-0.99pb5.I am tried to get it work on eac-1.0beta3.Additional command-line options: REACT %original% %source% %dest% "%artist%" "%albumtitle%" "%title%" "%tracknr%" "%numtracks%" "%year%" "%genre%" "%comment%" "%cddbid%" "%trackcrc%" %bitrate%And i am modified .au3 new registery key places.Everything other works fine, but:- Album Art Downloader use Album name as Artist name and 1 as Album name- I have to rename *albumname*.cue -> 1.cue- Music files are just ok but without albumartCan anyone help?

There are a number of issues with REACT2 and the latest EAC. I now convert to flac with EAC and than use CueTools to batch convert to mp3. If you havent looked at CueTools, you should as it does so much more. It will even run you old flacs through AccurateRip and it own DB. It can even correct small errors on flac images. Look here:http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=66233http://www.cuetools.net/wiki/CUEToolsYour only other choice is to use react2 with an older version of EAC.
