Looks good.
I've used checkboxes for a lot of the options instead of buttons (seemed more natural to me) with my app auto-sending the options when it first detects Audiosurf.

Have you had any issues with fullscreening/minimising at all?
This is the biggest thing delaying mine, whenever I drop it out of fullscreen things tend to go hideously wrong.
If my app does it, the wrong screen-mode is selected on the desktop until you click in a window (it actually goes from Audiosurf -> Desktop resolution -> Audiosurf resolution -> Desktop resolution -> Audiosurf resolution, waits for click -> Desktop resolution, which is pretty weird and more than a little annoying).
If I do it manually it drops back to the desktop then instantly back to audiosurf and loses the mouse cursor (so can't click on anything) and alt-F4 is needed to kill Audiosurf.

Following a quit like that, very often the next instance of Audiosurf I run refuses to return messages. It still accepts them but won't return any data. Very odd. Clears itself after about 10 minutes which is even stranger.

Anyway, will have a play with your app, see if I can reproduce the problems or whether it's something I've done.
Might just be this install of Windows, needs re-installing. :P

Several points:
1) Yes I have replicated the fullscreen bugs, so at least I know it's not something I'm doing. Might be 32-bit Vista, might be the Windows install, might be Audiosurf itself.

2) Being able to move songs up/down on the playlist to change their order would be handy.

3) It didn't detect Audiosurf when I first ran it until I moved to the character screen. I assume this is because you're not using quickstartregisterwindow but only registerwindow.

4) Minor point, but loading playlist files from WinAMP perhaps?

5) It jumps straight from one song into the next without stopping on the score screen. This might be personal preference on my part, but I'd like to check the scores in between songs. Maybe an option to switch between current behaviour and that?

Overall good work though. :)

Will implement ;)

Yes, I've done so because one of the times when I was testing quickstartregisterwindow, Audiosurf gave me a Questviewer.exe error, so I decided not to mess with Audiosurf when it's still loading...

4) Minor point, but loading playlist files from WinAMP perhaps?

Will try to implement...

Yeah, I was thinking that when I went to sleep xD

Overall good work though. :)

Thanks! And thanks for the feedback too ;)

Oh, and about the button thing, I just found them more original than normal checkboxes :P

Version 1.3 up!

And, unless there are any huge bugs, I don't think I'll update this anymore, I mean... It's kinda finished right now...

Few minor issues on the open songs thing:
You missed ogg files and ideally you want an "all audio types" that will open all Audiosurf's filetypes. Even if you can't read the tags, just display the filename or something.
You want to change the Filter to something like:
"Audiosurf Audio|*.mp3;*.ogg;*.flac;*.wma;*.wav|MPEG Layer 3|*.mp3|OGG VORBIS Audio|*.ogg|Free Lossless Audio Codec|*.flac|Windows Media Audio|*.wma|Wave|*.wav|All Files|*.*"
I suggest leaving the *.* in there as well, purely for user convenience.

Multiple selection within the playlist editor would be handy. Deleting multiple songs at once isn't easy and there's no way to change a song's position without removing it then rebuilding the entire playlist from that point on.
I guess editing the text file is a possibility for this, but it's a bit unwieldy imo.

Just some ideas anyway.

I'm not really aware if the ID3Lib can read OGG files, anyway I'll give it a try...

Yes, I'm aware that playlist could be much better, it's just that it's the first time I made program that is so listview dependant, anyway I had one failed attempt to make multiple selection on the playlist, so I'll try to resume that with a more general idea...

Oh and thanks for your ideas, they're really the only ones I'm receiving right now (apart from mines) ;)

I've used it quite a bit and it's pretty damn good, pitty won't play on 'enter' key press, but apparently it works on vista/7 just not XP
Australia is kinda awesome, but it's no Yorkshire.
