New FLAC frontend beta Reply #25 – 2013-03-17 22:06:10 Quote from: korth on 2013-03-12 13:53:04Maybe making chcp an option (or an option to disable it) with a note in the readme that this feature doesn't work on XP?I'll use some code that removes chcp from the batch file if running on XP. Really, this chcp-stuff is giving me lots of headache.Quote from: agentk7 on 2013-03-15 20:20:45Wow, I was wondering if anyone would ever take up the mantle to improve/revamp Flac Frontend. I wanted to pass along my initial observations:- When configuring the frontend I checked the box for "Keep foreign metadata". My first test was to decode some flac files and was immediately greeted with the command prompt error "ERROR reading foreign metadata: no foreign metadata found (017)". Perhaps this is a flac.exe issue and is fixed with the new version?That's not a bug, it's a feature. Keep foreign metadata is an 'advanced' feature and should only be used if you know what you're doing, so enabling it for decoding while there's no foreign metadata indeed returns an error, that's by design.QuoteOne favorite feature of the old Flac Frontend was the fact that it preserved the file date of the input files. This version does not preserve the original file dateWeird, flac does this on linux by default as well. I'll take a look why this doesn't work on windows.Quote- Will the new Flac Frontend eventually have a config or ini file to save the settings?I don't think so.
