[SOLVED] The 2 last characters of the resulting CUE file truncated

I have a CUE file named: (1982) Skin, Brains, and Guts (E.P.).cue

Linked to a full album FLAC named: (1982) Skin, Brains, and Guts (E.P.).flac

When I try to split per track, I use this template:

%directoryname%\'('%year%')' %album%[  '('%unique%')']

To my understanding the result must be a CUE and FLAC files located in the same directory and named:

(1982) Skin, Brains, and Guts (E.P.) (1).cue as the filename is already taken .

My issue is I the is last .) is truncated.

Result: (1982) Skin, Brains, and Guts (E.P.cue

It happens only when the album name contains .) at the end.

Where I am wrong in my template?

Here some info about original the CUE file

Code: [Select]
PERFORMER "7 Seconds"
TITLE "Skin, Brains, and Guts (E.P.)"
REM DATE 1982
REM GENRE Hardcore
FILE "(1982) Skin, Brains, and Guts (E.P.).flac" WAVE

CUETools CUE file generated:

FILE "1.01 - Skin, Brains, and Guts.flac" WAVE
Encoding tied: UTF-8, UTF-8 and ANSI

The MediaInfo from the original FLAC file:

Genre                                    : Hardcore
Recorded date                            : 1982

Resulting track MediaInfo result:

Performer                                : 7 Seconds
Genre                                    : Hardcore
Recorded date                            : 1982
CDTOC                                    : 9+96+F9A+1F8A+2DF3+3695+6283+77C2+8BD7+9895+C555

Version of CUETools tried: 2.1.6 and 2.1.7

The FLAC files are generated, named and tagged correctly,

The content of the CUE file is correct.

I am using Windows 10 64bit

Usually use UTF-8 BOM for more compatibility with non-latin characters.

I am sure this is a simple mistake in my template but I cannot see it.

TIA

? - did you mean .cue?

So you're using
%directoryname%\'('%year%')' %album%[  '('%unique%')'].cue
so you can modify the file name of the .cue
instead of using
%directoryname%\%filename%[  '('%unique%')'].cue

Yes, and tested both template 8)
I was sure the .cue was implied.

Thanks I now can process 1846 albums in batch

Just don't try to do everything at once. CUETools stores some data from each rip processed until the end of the run.

I do it per artist basis to be sure.
