Yes it is. I'd wait a day though. I discovered an issue in version 1.5.8, where albums don't show when an artist or genre only has 1 album. I'm working on a fix.

Thank you!

Cheers for the updates

 

Just reporting, Avast scanned the update installer for malware, but cleared it. No big deal.

Sadly, Avast does this on almost every release. I scan each release with NOD32 before publishing. Enjoy!

Thanks for loving it! There is currently no Twitter integration. I'm however working on a plugin system, which will allow plugging anything to playback events, including Twitter. I might create the Twitter plugin myself.

Albums showing up multiple times. ID3 tags look fine.

Please check the F.A.Q. https://www.digimezzo.com/software/dopamine-f-a-q/

Could it be a case of Why are some of my songs not grouped in one album?

 

I get this "issue" a lot. Next versions of Dopamine will ignore album artist and just group on album title.

HI all,

Dopamine 1.5.11 was just released. Mostly compatibility fixes in this one. I got a lot of reports of audio files not playing. This seemed caused by an incompatibility with 32 bits versions of Windows, and the infamous Windows N editions. I'd like to resolve some annoyances (like the album thingie above) in the next version.

 

This is the change log.

 

2018-03-21: Dopamine 1.5.11
 

- [Added] Added support for N editions of Windows (Even without Media Feature Pack)
- [Changed] Updated the Chinese (Simplified) translation
- [Changed] Updated the Croatian translation
- [Changed] Updated the Greek translation
- [Changed] Updated the Korean translation
- [Changed] Updated the Portuguese (Portugal) translation
- [Changed] Updated the Swedish translation
- [Fixed] Fixed a crash which happens just after startup on some editions of Windows 10
- [Fixed] Playback fails on 32 bit Windows versions

made an account just to tell you how great this app is! loving it! I've tried so many pc music players but most of them suck.

one suggestion : option to change the app colour to random whenever a new song is played?

It doesn't display the empty lines in the lyrics anymore. (edit: When there are time stamps)  Not a major issue, but this seems to change from release to release.  I guess I need to timestamp the empty lines.

Don't mess up your lyrics yet. I'll try to find out how it should work tonight.

I've never given it much thought. Are suffle and random defined by this? (found on the web):

 

Random: if you have a list of 100 songs, a random number is chosen in the range of (1..100) and then the song representing that number is played next. Each time a selection is made from 100 songs.
Shuffle: selects 1 song as the method above and removes it from the 100 list. So the next selection of a random song is made from 99 songs. Next, 98 songs and so on, until the list is empty.

 

So with random, a song can be repeated .With shuffle, it won't, until the complete list has been played.

Is that how you mean it? I yes, Dopamine uses "shuffle", not "random".

 

Which is usually preferred by users: shuffle or random?

 

When using random, and pressing "Previous" does one expect the previously played song to play, or just another random song? Because for shuffle, most players seem to remember the previously played song.

In WinAmp there's a problem with 'shuffle' enabled on randomized list. When turning it off I found many long time unheard songs. So it would be nice to hear random songs :)

I'm fixing this issue. The LRC format has given me some headaches. But I'm now improving the LRC parser and adding some automated tests which will prevent behavior to change between releases.

I'll soon release a 15.5.14 beta 1, with these fixes. Give me a day or 2, as I'd like to spend some time getting this right.
