CDART bug - Maxwell47 - 2009-08-20 00:37

SVN 22275 Transparency! 1.03

When you try to play a track with a cdart file in it, if the name of the artist has "/" in it, ie AC/DC you do not get audio cd art spin.
Looks like load path is being obtained from the song tag and not the folder it is loaded in.

True path Music\ACDC\Black Ice\

as a workaround for artist and bands with a '/' in their name, you could create some extra subfolders like this: I:\Music\AC\DC\Black Ice\cdart.png and it should work.

In windows you cant even put a \ or / within a folder name. So Im not sure it would even read a folder called AC/DC.

Yes, thats why it will not load, my path is

Music\ACDC\Black Ice\
