Mr.B. Posted August 31, 2014 Share Posted August 31, 2014 Hello,I have been using Poweramp for probably some 3.5 years now, firstly on Samsung Galaxy S1 and now on S3, currently on Android 4.3.I had few months break in using it lately during which probably more than single Poweramp update was installed on my S3 and I believe this could be the reason of significant change in Poweramp behavior. I am old school user - I still buy CDs and convert them to flac (mp3 previously) files putting all the necessary information such as artist name, record title and song number and name into folder and file names. The bottom line is that I do not use tags and I do not need and I really do not want Poweramp to even try to manage my music resources by means of functions or options such as library, playlist or queue. All I want is the possibility to go to given album folder (which I feel like listening to at the moment), tap on the song number one and have all the songs in this particular folder played in ascending order sorted by file names which always means song numbers because they are included as the beginning of each file name. This is my system which I have been happily using for nearly 20 years and I really not feel like changing it even slightly. Previously I could achieve this simply by having following options turned on: list options -> by file name, show file names in folders and view as hierarchy and that was it. Unfortunately today Poweramp drove me mad by skipping songs and even jumping to other folders just after first song. I have spent some time trying to figure out what is going on and I could not find pattern of new system of songs ordering (seems to be random) but I have found that the only way to force Poweramp to play all the songs in given folder by file name order is to use Enqueue -> select all -> enqueue which is just extremely annoying. Additionally if I like to listen to more than single album/folder I will be forced to add each next album/folder I want to listen to the queue thing. I am just pissed off. Previously Poweramp was automatically continuing playing files from the next folder (by folder names order which in my case usually means chronologically next record by given artist) and that is what I want. I just can not even imagine other way of listening to music than by artist and by full albums order, all the necessary information to achieve it I already have in my folder and file structure and names and I do not want to be forced to manage any queues or playlists because it is not necessary in my case, it is annoying and it is wast of time.Is there any possibility to regain previous behavior?Regards,Mr.B.
