i am not sure, i never got usage feedback on this, but, did you know:
- design is loosely based on winamp
- (random) player that implements auto advance
- pressing space on the GP gfx will open your mind. oh and just press space again and again.
- joystick in port 2 moves the cursor to the left and right always, and as an exception up and down on the play button
- select a symbol and press fire (or up and down - can hold those - and then press fire on symbol 4)
- the 2nd sybmol, circled arrow = loop track forever
- the 3rd symbol, crossed arrows = play list randomly. bus noise randomizer, works better on real hw
- the 4th symbol, play arrow = (re)start track, blinking cursor on it indicates: you can scroll the list with joy 2. pressing fire will play selected track
- the 5th symbol = pause/unpause
- the 6th symbol = prev track (respects random, if selected)
- the 7th symbol = next track (respects random, if selected)
- the 8th symbol (?) = nfo + color change of GP (click multiple times, will ya) (and then press space, and click, and, press space again, and click and so on)
next tune loads automatically - next time i will implement end of track vs loading time estimation.
or something like that.

thanks for all the love. little behind the scenes: krill and i have found out that a certain config of his last loader wouldnt work with vice older than 2.3 . so this is also a first with a special loading protocol, and thats why the *excellent krill loader* is so hyper fast on this one. check it on a real 1541, its faster than in the emulator!

Dr. J, scroll one page down. VICE 2.2 is outdated, run on a real C64 or VICE 2.4.

This music-collection has a huge friendly touch, it welcomes you so friendly with the beautiful colors and very good tunes!

I was really surprised, because I enjoyed the "Intro" of this music-collection, I thought I wait a bit before I press space, than after some time I pressed space and woOOOoom than[SELF CENSORED BECAUSE THE PEOPLE THAT NOT SEE THAT YET, MUST HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE] rEAllY cOoL sTuFf! xD

You deserve the 10/10 because the tunes really beautiful and the whole interface rOx +1 rep because the tunes going to the next tune when a tune is finished.

Of course it runs perfect on real hw, but if you against all odds are forced to use a emulator (maybe you are at work or travelling light), use Vice v.2.4. The older versions seem to have problems with the loader or something.

in VICE you have to set drive 8 type to 1541 of course, to mount d64s =) and goes without saying, True Drive Emulation must be active.
