Clicking on the other album images will play the album, if you don't have the "do not add tracks to now playing list" option ticked. Personally I'd forgotten about this behaviour, does anyone use it? Maybe I should consider linking to the album artwork instead?
No, I don't use it. In fact, I think it is a bit of a trap.

By the way.
I have changed the default behaviour when you click on a track. Instead of "Clear & Play", I prefer "Play Last".
Maybe that could be an option in MonkeyRok extra settings.

I do use the "do not add tracks to now playing list" option.
Personally I don't mind it does nothing when I click on the picture.

I too have the feature to play tracks disabled. If it were possible to make it Play Next/Last, then I might consider using it. It doesn't really bother me that the Album cover doesn't do anything when this feature is disabled. Was merely an observation I made when trying to find the bug that was being talked about by... whoever reported it.

Hi Trixmoto,

V 5.0 does not correctly handle Automatic skin switching for these ones; (MR's skins have same names as MM's skins):
MonkeyRok picks "Spotify" whenever using "Spotify", "Spotify-B", "Spotify-Indie" and "Spotify-Wine" in MM.

Thank you

If MR5.0 crashes MM3 with a MSHTML.dll error related to a sharing violation you probably have IE8RC1 installed. Uninstall it and the error will go away

Crashes MM3 with a MSHTML error message

Could be a skin problem but I removed the Vision MR skin too. Still crashed

Any advice?
Back to 4.0 for now

@Nebbin - the tab issue is a known issue and I'm gonna try and sort it out in the next version. I can't replicate the video issue though, it works fine for me - can anyone else replicate this?

@fizzjob - the tracklist has never been built until the header is clicked on, so I'm not sure exactly what you've done in the past, but do you think a separate format function for the current album would be useful in a future version?

@dypsis - I'll add this to my list.

@Eyal - I'll take a look at the automatic skin mode.

@Sirandar888 - you really shouldn't be using IE8rc1, it has some serious bugs in it, one being a redraw/resize issue which throws IE into an infinite loop.

Yup .... didn't even know I was using it. Installed it a while back and because MS keeps trying to sneak "Genuine Advantage" in with my updates I check them before installing. Must have blocked when it tried to update IE8 to the final version.

IE8RC1 also causes Lyricator to crash

Sorry to be a downer, but I liked the simplicity of Monkeyrok4

Any chance of releasing a version of 4.1 with the bugs fixed .... ie apostrophe and special character problems

When I minimize or hide the top panel (with the player), the text panel below also disappears. Since this panel (which I use for Lyrics) has its own Minimize/Hide buttons, I suspect this is a bug...

I realize it is a matter of preference, but it seems to me that you can "downgrade" MR5 to MR4 functionality simply by deselecting many of the features and functions. Maybe I'm missing something.... Is there something in particular that MR5 has that you do not want? ...and that you can not get rid of? I haven't come across anything new that I can't just turn off.

@Sirandar888 - what about version 5 do you consider to be overly complicated? I've added extra options but there's no need for you to use them if you don't want.

@nojac - this is not a bug, if you look you'll see that the text panel is within the top section and therefore would logically be hidden with it. You'll be glad to hear that I've already added the text panel options to the external panel options in the next version, so you will be able to still see the lyrics as you require.

Was going to complain about Monkey Rok not updating when the song changed on my radio stream.

But, checked event log and On Play event is only posted for start of stream, not change in stream. :(

Send me an example and I'll take a look, but I've no idea if there'll be anything I can do.
