Hello radaday

Maybe the type of files you are using are in some way not compatible with G-Force. You can convert flac files to MP3 by clicking on the link below although I don't know if the quality of the audio remains the same.

If thats the case i take it it cant be done when playing Flac files which are the higher quality files.
May be a thing you might need to look at for next update.

Hello radaday

I appreciate that flac files are by far superior in quality to MP3 files. You could try using G-Force Standalone, have a read how to set this up by clicking on the link below:-

You could also contact Brandon (SoundSpectrum) by clicking on this link:-

It might be because the flac files arent tagged with the info like the mp3s are. check it out.

How do i tag the flac files thanks

if you are using just about any player you should be able to view and edit any tags. In winamp drop menu and see file info from there you can edit the tags as necessary.
