A request: could you please allow for any variation of the "-Portable" name append to be able to turn LameXP portable -- even "-p", for instance? And thanks for all your great work. 8)

I'm not sure about wanting to even launch this App, a few years back I hated that rocket animation splash screen taking forever to show the GUI that I needed to make a simple audio conversion, sorry for my LAME sounding words.

If you see the startup screen for longer than a few seconds, something must be wrong with your system. Takes about ~2 seconds for me:

Looking forward to the final release, I use this thing constantly, keep up the great work.

Question, has the bug been fixed where if the name ends with a "." (period) the period gets removed in the name. I assume this is a bug unless it was some quickfix workaround to a security issue.

An example of this would be;
F.A.M.E..mp3 = F.A.M.E.mp3 so instead of F.A.M.E. it ends up being F.A.M.E

But, once it had been decided that the file's name and the file's type are both stored together in the "file name" field, and that a dot character is used as the separator between the name and the type, it was clear that dots have a special meaning within a file name and should not be used otherwise. This one time Apple actually did the right thing by using type codes instead - although deprecated now)


It seem this bug is back, it was fixed but I'm guessing it came back with the latest release, been noticing a lot of my music is missing the "periods".

Naughty By Nature - O.P.P.
Geto Boys - Do It Like It a G.O.
Jay-Z - The Story of O.J.
Prodigy - H.N.I.C.
Prodigy - Y.N.T.
Twista - Adrenaline Rush The Sage Continues...

I can go on and on, but anyway they are all missing periods.

    «Note: This demo (pre-release) version of LameXP will expire at 2017-07-11.»

    Nonetheless, apparently it's working, as the debug window displays «LameXP is running in "portable" mode -> config in application dir!» and the INI is effectively present there...

Not a bug, but merely a "side effect" of more strictly sanitizing the output filenames - so that encoding processes won't fail due to invalid output file names (e.g. after auto-rename from meta-tag).

Looks like we are at the point where it's close to impossible to fix one user's problem without pissing off another user. IMHO it's generally a bad idea to have dots in a filename for other purposes than separating the file extension from the rest :wink:

Also, to express an "ellipsis" (), there exists a corresponding Unicode characters (U+2026) that should be used instead of three "full stop" characters in a row.

Anyhow, here is another try:

Maybe an option in LameXP to please both camps then? It might not be worth the effort though, I'd consider it a bug personally though even though I understand why having a period next to an ".extension" might be bad to some. But if the input file is called "Do It Like It a G.O." then the output result should be the same 1:1.

Don't think it's a good idea to have an option that breaks (or disables) the file name sanitizer, causing encodes to potentially fail because of invalid output file names.

Instead, I tried tweaking the file name generation code, once again, so that multiple dot characters in front of the file extension can be preserved - even though it hurts my eyes.

Did you try the new build :?:

I just gave your test build a whirl, throwing just a few of the above songs I mentioned in and they all came out good (in my eyes :P).
