It's good to see people excited about this program's return from obscurity.
Yes, for the moment, only one file at a time, but that will change. The biggest problem with batch conversion that I can see is loop points per file. Might either be too much of a hassle to implement or if I can implement batch conversion, I think it would only be for loopless ADX files, but I won't say for sure whether or not any of this is 100% at the moment. The program I am using to make the frontend is still kinda "new" to me in regards that I still don't know how to do certain things on it, but I am trying new things all the time with it and plan on getting my skills much better to make even better programs and the such.
MAYBE one day I'll make something that will let you tinker with the .DEF files that MUGEN uses, but I'm not sure on that either as that's still a ways away. Hell, by that time, I'll actually be using code instead of a program to create my stuff and thus it will be possible anyway.
Now, let me clarify in case anyone is confused.
At the moment, I am not a "programmer" per say. I am using a very powerful game maker/application designer called Multimedia Fusion 2 Developer to create the frontend with great results, but seeing as I am a bit limited in my skills with using the program, there are still some things I can't do with it. As I learn the program more and how you can do this and that to produce that and this, I'll be able to implement more features you guys would like.
Be that as it may, I am currently enrolled at DeVry to become a game programmer/application developer so either way, programming using code will come to me when I've finally gotten better with it and actually learned how. And when the time comes, I'll convert my current frontend to C++ (or whichever language is best for it) and it will be even better!
Final note, the reason I set the date for Nov. 1 is because I wanted to make sure that the program is bug-free, which in MaxBeta's case, there is something wrong.
@MaxBeta, it could very well be the anti-virus program, but one good way to tell would be to open a DOS prompt and run the encoder on it's own. If it gives you some error or it just doesn't work at all, then your anti-virus program has deemed it a hostile program and has probably wiped it making it inoperable.
Erm, funny thing that happens when you're thinking about the problem after you've had a few sleepless nights due to trying to get back into a good sleep schedule. Here's a question for you MaxBeta.
The folder that your music is in...does it happen to have spaces in the name?
Remember, spaces are the encoder's worst enemy. adxencd.exe is from the old DOS era so it doesn't like folders with spaces in the name. If that's he case, move your music to a different folder or replace the spaced area with an underscore and you SHOULD be set.
If that doesn't work, try these steps to determine if your anti-virus has messed up axdencd.exe:
1.) Open Command Prompt
2.) Navigate to the folder with the encoder
-Use cd foldername to open that folder and cd\ to make the command prompt take you to the front of the drive or [C:\] then
navigate using cd
3.) Run the encoder by typing adxencd.exe
You SHOULD see this:
|||||||||||| ADX Audio decompression tool Ver.4.61 ||||||||||
Software Audio Encoder for "CRI ADX FreeWare " 1999-07-16
Usage: adxencd <Input PCM File> [Output Dir] [Options]
Input PCM File : Input audio data file [.wav|.aif]
Output Dir|FIle : ADX output directory or file
'File' should be specified extention[.adx]
-sf<sfreq> : Sampling freq. for compression [Hz] def=same as input
-ch<mode> : Audio data channel def=not specified
0=Left 1=Right 2=L/R exchange 3=(L+R)/2(MONO)
-lmsec<msec> : Compression data size [msec] def=input data size
-lcof<freq> : CutOff freq. for down-sampling LPF [Hz] def=Auto
-ldim<dim> : Down-sampling LPF dimension
-lps<pos> : Loop start position [smpl]
-lpe<pos> : Loop end position [smpl]
If you don't, then your anti-virus has screwed with the encoder. If you do see this and your folder doesn't have any spaces in it, then I'll try testing this on my mothers PC when I hear back from you since hers is Windows XP Home with SP3.
