    Asset unwanted art in Menu icons

    - Asset unwanted art in Menu icons -

    when a mp3 (FLAC)has Genre set to Genre --> cover art pops up at the menu icon for genre.

    happens with music-filens With/Without cover inbedded in music-file tag, and Folder.jpg and Front.jpg in folder.
    have seen this behavor since version 5 (I belive)

    ----------------------------------
    setup:
    windows 10 version 1909
    asset 6.2 (running as service)
    folder structure:
    JACK_MEATBEAT___T.U.S._-_Misplaced_devotion__1994_mp3/17 I Walked With A Zombie.mp3
    JACK_MEATBEAT___T.U.S._-_Misplaced_devotion__1994_mp3/Folder.jpg
    JACK_MEATBEAT___T.U.S._-_Misplaced_devotion__1994_mp3/Front.jpg
    ----------------------------------


    test solution 1
    - running asset as a service
    - changed Genre tag for the mp3 file from Genre to Pop
    - detect changes
    - restart asset
    - some benefits down the tree, the art was gone in some places but still resident under Root menu tree genre.

    test solution 2
    - running asset as a service
    - changed Genre tag for the mp3 file from Genre to Pop
    - refresh all
    - restart asset
    - art gone in Root menu tree Genre -success-.

    Notes:
    seems that every time a file taged genre:genre sneaks in to the library, I have to do it all over again.
    if you have a big arcive with files and not so well organized , aka folder/filename dont correspond to tag .... set aside some hours and god hunting

    I bet some tag software puts in genre:genre as default, just for reminder to actually put in a god genre name

    wonder what if a put in Tag:
    Artist:Artist (formly know as Prince)
    Album:Album (as The Album)
    Genre:Genre (Prince dont want to categorize his music)

    You could search for and delete Genre.png and asset will not serve it. The matching is not simply for pre-defined menus, many people replace the name of their artist with a picture.

    Re: Asset unwanted art in Menu icons

    Got it but --> will check it out

    have to investigate it some more and learn.

    But aint:
    \Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages
    separated from
    AppData\Roaming\dBpoweramp\uMediaLibrary\AssetUser UpstreamImages

    that means:
    if I want to change PNG images in
    \Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages
    I can do that

    if I want to change/add PNG images in
    AppData\Roaming\dBpoweramp\uMediaLibrary\AssetUser UpstreamImages
    I can do that

    should I think globaly ?

    As it are now music file with art tagged with Genre:Genre overrides Genre.png automaticly.
    an unwanted function

    One is based on a library, so could have multiple instances with different images, the AssetImages apply to all asset instances.

    Re: Asset unwanted art in Menu icons

    Tried suggestion "You could search for and delete Genre.png and asset will not serve it"
    in folder \Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages
    actually just renamed "Genre.png" to "Genre.png_" guess its nearly the same as delete.

    Renamed Tag in JACK_MEATBEAT___T.U.S._-_Misplaced_devotion__1994_mp3/17 I Walked With A Zombie.mp3
    from
    Genre:Pop
    to
    Genre:Genre
    Asset: detect changes
    Asset: restart

    The same problem occur:
    I get the Art image for JACK_MEATBEAT___T.U.S._-_Misplaced_devotion__1994_mp3/17 I Walked With A Zombie.mp3
    represented in Top Tree Genre (That level as Artist, New Albums are) with Linn Kazoo control software running on windows 10

    As it are now music file with art tagged with Genre:Genre overrides Genre.png in in folder \Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages automaticly.
    an unwanted function !/?

    however: about that genre icon are now greyish, background of icon are now a littlebit offsett..
    that only seems to be related to Linn Kazoo 4.13.63 running on iPad iOS 10.3.3
    guess Linn Kazoo on iOS dont display control point icon "as is"
    some cache thing or that kazoo on iOS want to highlight latest used icon, i guess.

    Tried suggestion "You could search for and delete Genre.png and asset will not serve it"
    no success

    mp3 files tagged with Genre:Genre, Artist:Artist .... and Folder.jpg & Front.jpg in folder
    still overide icon (PNG) in \Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages
    Even if the file ***.PNG in \Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages exist or not.

    Is this by design ?

    if it is, I can make a ticket in the whislist forum.
    asset setting on/off
    for files tag overide "\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\AssetImages" folder

    I believe you would have to copy the genre.png to the 'AssetUserUpstreamImages' folder and this would override everything.

    Re: Asset unwanted art in Menu icons

    ok will try it .

    just for clarification:
    renamed "Genre.png" to "Genre.png_" guess its nearly the same as delete ?
    but who knows,
    sometimes clever programs act like .....
    - you think u can fool me by just renaming the file haha, dont you know I using
    advanced search algoritms and fingerprints
    to se its the same file, you just renamed it.
    some backup program behave like this.

    you would be better as .pn_ as it searches *.png and it could possibly find *.png_
