There was a small problem with version 1.7 when using it as fresh install on a new computer. In that case, no email address was set and thus the metadata retrieval failed. Here comes version 1.8, which should fix this problem.

Can this support LOOPSTART, LOOPEND, and/or LOOPLENGTH meta fields (sometimes they have an underscore between the words)? Those are commonly used for game soundtracks and is supported by vgmstream. It doesn't loop like it's even supported in foobar, but this is also the only loop plugin that's still being updated every so often so I thought I'd ask.
Support - (fb2k) / Re: Tags not saving
Last post by Bogozo -
if you are using external tags, then your edits don't get saved into the track files at all and instead to a database or ghost files.  They won't get seen by another FB2K instance
No. "Folder tags" are saved as "folder.tags" files into folder where audio files are. And will be seen by another fb2k instance if it has component installed.

Hi, Hakan.
If those numbers are close to real life averages, then HALAC w/Rice  will be  on par with FLAC -4  :)  while still being faster enc/dec.

After -4 Flac doesn't bring groundbreaking compression gains (<1%).

Given that I see myself  (and likely other FLAC users) choosing HALAC w/Rice  if/when format will be solid.
Looking towards  HALAC release 0.3  :)
3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: NEW ESLyric v0.5 - an alternative lyric show component
Last post by ngs428 -
In ESLyrics you can hit "ctrl" and "left click" to drag and set the offset, Where is this offset saved to? I hit "ctrl" and "left click" to drag and set the offset, then right click, adjust offset, the offset is there, then I hit OK. The offset value is not saved to the top of the .lrc file and also the timestamps are not changed. Ideally the offset would be applied to the top of the file, then this new command (in Alpha) could be used to apply to the timestamps. Or the timestamps could be adjusted automatically per what that offset is.

Is there another way to do this or am I missing something?

Add panel - Toolbars - Playback Order ?

EDIT: Sorry, misread, not in status bar/windows title. In a Panel Stack Splitter you can use  %ps_playback_order% to display current state.
