This is an idea I've been working on for a few days now, this is how I see it:
There's a lot of nice options people want easy access to by re-tagging their music.
Audiosurf doesn't support these extra options in game.
So I've written (most of) a program that will take the options you want, retag the music then send it to Audiosurf using a simple set of checkboxes instead of having to remember the options yourself. Then once the song has finished, will re-tag the music back to its original title.
Currently this only just works, only supports mp3s and only IDv2 (not sure why on that front, about to look into it).
However when finished I'm hoping it will ease the use of these options.
The main reason I'm making this post is to see what exactly people would want in this program in addition to the tagging.
Auto-fullscreening / returning to desktop after song?
Which formats should be a priority? I have a fair bit of OGG support in as well, but what else will people want?
Other options? Anything in the WM_COPYDATA list is addable.
Playlist support? How much is it wanted? Individual options per song? One set of options for the entire playlist?
I will be open sourcing this program once I have it ready for some basic release, so anyone wanting to look at the code can do so then.
Comments? Ideas? Criticisms?
