Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I was planning to use a pi zero. If I add the justboom amp hat, will I still have access to the GPIO pins to connect buttons? I expect this is a dumb question, but can somebody confirm with a yes or no? I’m itching to order the amp :) . Thanks Hi, Not sure as I haven't used one, but if you check ou...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi, If you run fruitbox first time it will create a database file with the MP3 songs it finds. You can then edit the fruitbox.db file manually to order the songs as you wish, and then make sure the SortSongsBy parameter in fruitbox.cfg is set to 'Unsorted' (without the quotes). That way the select c...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi, A beautiful new 'Modern' skin is available, designed by Alvaro. Thanks! Despite it's name, it's actually a really old looking classic, with flickering status and wonky pages. You can find it in the GitHub 'skins' repository... https://github.com/chundermike/rpi-fruitbox/tree/master/skins Mike

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Good stuff! Regarding buttons, for my jukebox I connected my switches to the GPIO pins and used Adafruit's "retrogame" utility to map these to simulated keyboard key presses. I will look into supporting USB controllers as requested in a previous post, but I've not used these before so will need to g...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi

Not sure...fruitbox doesn't use the libretro API but it may be possible to install it alongside retropie and call it from the EmulationStation frontend. I'm not the best person to ask....maybe someone else would know?

Cheers

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi, fruitbox doesn't support touchscreen at the moment. I will look into adding that (but I guess I'll need to get myself a touchscreen first!) mabscottsville - to answer your question; when the touchscreen support goes in, I will also add a way of re-defining the keyboard keys as well; this won't i...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

That error is expected - since fruitbox.cfg doesn't exist in the installation directory. You need to specify the fruitbox.cfg from one of the skins, i.e. ./fruitbox --cfg skins/WallJuke/fruitbox.cfg Before you run it, you need to put your MP3 files somewhere, and then edit the fruitbox.cfg file to p...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mark, What are you typing after 'chmod +x ./fruitbox'?. That command won't actually give you any response, it's just giving fruitbox program executable status so you can subsequently run it. The next thing to do is run fruitbox itself as described in the next step. To run fruitbox you must be in ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi

Fruitbox already has a coin mode; you can insert coins by pressing the INS key. You should be able to map this key to a GPIO pin and attach a coin mechanism to that I guess. I'm sure this has been done on home brew arcade cabinets...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Sure, can do. I will add another cfg parameter (CoverartMode say) which will allow you to manually select Embedded, Specified or Logo images (and also Auto and None). Hopefully this will meet your needs?

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

No problem. I will add that to the next release. I had already given some thought to that...you will be able to load/save playlist files from a new command line option.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Just refactoring some of the code at the moment; taking a little longer than I thought as life is getting in the way...but I hope to be able to release something in the next couple of weeks ;)

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I need to sort out a couple of bugs with it, but haven't been able to find the time to take a look at them. Hopefully in the next couple of weeks I'll sort them out and then it's good to go :)

Thanks for your interest...

fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi, Inspired by DWJukebox, I've developed some software to turn the Raspberry Pi into a retro MP3 Jukebox. It's completely skinnable using a simple text file. If you're interested, you can download it from Github... https://github.com/chundermike/rpi-fruitbox ...please read the README.md for install...
