Latest version: 18.104.22.168 as of 07-29-2017
22.214.171.124 - 07-29-2017
- Mac-version only: Drag&Drop from the Finder to Fakin' The Funk? did not work; in addition, strange icons were drawn on the border
126.96.36.199 - 07-23-2017
- Batch-save frequency-spectrums by using the right-mouse key over selected files in the listview or entire nodes from the treeview
- Export selected files (or entire folder nodes) to a CSV or TEXT file (context popup menu for tree- and listview)
- Edit ID-tags for artist, album, title, genre and filename directly in the listview (works for multiselected files, too). The changes will be applied to the musicfiles immediately
- Options to enhance the replay-feature in the (refactored) settings dialog: You can define whether or not to use the crossfading feature, and if you want to play the next track automatically
- Shortcuts for Play/Pause (Ctrl+P), Stop (Ctrl+Space), Next song (Ctrl+N or Alt-Right), Previous song (Ctrl+L or Alt-Left)
- Adjusted colors for red/green/yellow when using a light theme
188.8.131.52 - 05-29-2017
Changes in this version:
- Reporting fakes above 256 kbps can be activated / deactivated in the settings dialog
(Detection of fakes above 256 kbps was deactivated by default in version 184.108.40.206)
- Playlists can be saved in MacOS / Linux format. In addition, you can define the encoding (UTF-8, UTF-16 or ANSI) --> see settings-dialog.
- Songs containing longer part of silence can be reported as "corrupted" (see settings dialog). It is required to activate the "analyze entire file" option in case you want to scan the whole file for such breaks. This will slow down the analysis process significantly.
- You can manually mark fakes or corrupted files as "OK" by using the right-mouse key in the listview (also possible by using the shortcut CTRL+O).
Resetting the state to default is possible by using the right-mouse-click again (or holding down the SHIFT-key when right-click in case you have selected a bunch of files) - or using the shortcut SHIFT+CTRL+O
Changes concerning Mac and Linux
- Switched the order of OK- and Cancel-button
- Improved styling
220.127.116.11 - 04-19-2017
Fakin' the Funk? runs now on Mac and Lunix (using WINE).
For Mac, we've created an installer package that installs all the necessary things in one batch.
In case that the Mac-security blocks it to open, just go to: Apple-icon > System preferences - Security & Privacy > Open anyway.
For Linux, there is an installer script that will help you to get it running with PlayOnLunix.
Changes in this version:
- When search is active, the displayed "number of files" will refer to the matching files (previously it showed always the number of existing files, disregarding the applied filter)
- Updated french translations
Changes to the analyis process (requires re-importing the files):
- If the actual bitrate is greater than 256, files will no longer be reported as fake
This is done because it is hard to spot the differences in the frequency-spectrum for those high-quality files.
Since even audiophile people cannot distinguish between 256 bps and 320 kbps, reporting such "fakes" will only confuse people but does not really help.
- If the actual bitrate is greater than 192, files will only be reoported as fake if the difference is > 30 kbps
This is done for the same purpose as stated above. Files with a bitrate > 192 are already high-quality ones.
So if there is only a slight difference, this is not noticeable to the users.
Changes concerning Mac and Linux
- Detect if "Fakin' The Funk?" is running under WINE and do some special handlings in this case
- Changed the player buttons so they look good in all platforms
- Detect the screen resolution on installation and set the default width and height for the precalculated frequency-spectrums accordingly
18.104.22.168 - 03/12/2017
Improved analysis: Detection of bitrate is more accurate:
- Some more files are identified as "fake"
- Some less false positives
- Detection for VBR encoded files is MUCH better
New columns in listview
- File type
New menu items in popupmenu for listview
- Refresh selected files: Possibility to re-read only the selected files (previously you could only refresh entire folders in the treeview)
- Save to playlist: The *selected* files will be exported to a playlist
- Remove from database (says it all)
- Show freqency-spectrum
- Open with windows explorer (opens the focused folder)
- The source folder is now a "dropdown" box so you can pick one of the last used folders easily
- New option to save the files to a playlist of your choice
- Right-Mouse context menu to
- Open the spectrum in external viewer
- Zoom the image to its original size
- Recalculate the spectrum (F5)
- Show bitrate informatiojn (see below)
- Select a different colorschema (see below)
- Doubleclick the image to open it in the external viewer
- Undock" icon in the upper-right corner to open it in external viewer
- Info"-Icon to toogle to show bitrate information or not (see below)
- Select colorschema: Use one of the predefined ones or create your own!
- The trigger-levels for 128, 160, 192, 256 and 320 kps can be shown in the spectrum as "circles" incl. label. A white line is drawn over the spectrum showing the "densitiy" of the frequencies.
- New option to selelect the resolution of the frequency spectrum
- New option "aggressive mode". As the name says, it is more aggressvie and might detect more files as fake, especially "Fraunhofer" encodes mp3 files as "fake"
- New options "clear database at startup" & "clear database on drag&drop" (similar to mp3tag)
- New button to select the colorschema
- New search-bar in the toolbar to search for tracks, filnames an so on, see http://forum.fakinthefunk.net/Tipps-for-optimizing-search-results-td6.html
- Support for searching in filenames only (prefix "filename:") and filenames incl. path (prefix "filepath:")
- "opus" files: The bitrate was not imported
- When refreshing the list (F5), the horizontal scrollbar was always resetted to "left"
- Refreshing folders sometimes did not refresh all files (also when using dnd to import files from different folders at once)
- Shortcut "Ctrl+F5" was always german
- Save dialog: Moving files to a folder only moved the first one
- Better exception handling
- Importing playlists will import all files contained in that playlist
- Import-files-dialog will automatically popup only once
