There is another reason (at least this is my excuse thus far) for it working on a single folder. Before the app starts, it scans the folder for modules and tries to determine the bpm of each module found.
If you're running on an unexpanded A500/A600, this is not fast, especially if you have a lot of mods in the folder. So imagine if you're doing a live set and you switch folders and it takes ages to re-load the list, your current tune might run out.
It's a bit like the exit function only works if the music has stopped and you hold the ESC key for 1/2 second. Features to try and ensure that you don't get caught out while doing a live gig.
There is also the fact that coding file selection and dos calls are boring as hell
On a side note: if you hit a key (A-Z) in the file selector, it jumps to the first file with that character (UK char only at the moment, sorry)
I've taken a break from development for the moment mainly because after Revision my day job turned into a shit tornado! (Most of the dev is done during my lunch break
) We will be back on it soon enough though, mainly to try and fix issues such as Kickstart 1.2 / 1.3 and an SPS issue which popped up.
BTW - Request if I may? If anyone has an A500 (ks 1.2 / 1.3) with a hard drive attached, can you try and run it from the HD? My WinUAE tests seem to suggest our kickstart issues are only floppy related..
