Seperate Row Highlights for songs

Postby James_S » Tue Aug 18, 2015 9:10 pm

As in, lets say one song is in 3/4 and uses the row highlight of 1st = 4 and 2nd = 12, and the next song is 4/4 and standard 4/16 in the same module.
Could this data be saved in the song so that FT remembers the row highlights for the individual songs without making old versions obsolete?

Code for this already appears in the 0.4.6 source code:

Code: Select all

bool CFamiTrackerDoc::ReadBlock_Header(CDocumentFile *pDocFile)
   // ...
   else if (Version >= 2) {
      // ...
      if (Version >= 4) {
         // Read highlight settings for tracks
         for (unsigned int i = 0; i < m_iTrackCount; ++i) {
            CPatternData *pTrack = GetTrack(i);
            // TODO read highlight
            int FirstHighlight = m_iFirstHighlight;
            int SecondHighlight = m_iSecondHighlight;
            pTrack->SetHighlight(FirstHighlight, SecondHighlight);
Since 0.5.0 beta 1 and onward uses version 4 for the HEADER block, it means that this feature is already implemented in every 0.5.0 beta. It does not seem the OP of the 0.5.0 beta thread mentions this at all. There is no way to make this feature backward-compatible since the row highlight info is completely removed from the PARAMS block.

To be perfectly fair, now that the question has been answered and the feature is known to be implemented for the next build, there is no reason for this thread to stay open any longer.
