MorGoTH's MP3Releaser

MorGoTH's MP3Releaser v3.5.2, dated: Tue, 23.12.2014, get it as exe bundle (829 kB). originally created by MorGoTH in 1998 when only a few knew what this tool has a use for, he has given the sources to us awhile ago and we did some fixes and added some features in the meantime (since 2004, but distributed it in a very, very private way :)
so this tool has been developed to be actually a MP3/MPC/OGG/FLAC-Releaser. if you find bugs or need new features don't hesitate to contact us!




CMG was one of the few groups known less for their output and more for their contribution to the scene in other ways. Perhaps due to strong ties to traditional warez, many members were talented programmers who would share their self-created tools with the rest of the scene. Most famously, Morgoth - a CMG member from its inception - created his own scene-oriented mp3 tagging tool (Morgoth's MP3 Releaser) which became the most popular tagger within the mp3 scene. CMG/Council member Werner & Tardy (also the former leader of TDU-Jam, Pentagram & Genesis) famously created Dupecheck/Checkpoint in 1997 which quickly became an important resource for the scene.

v3.5.2.0:  [ 23.12.2014 ]
           # comment will be saved, not only when generating a release.

           * id3v2 was not reseted correctly.
             - reported by Bob.
           * capitalization.
             - reported by anunknowndj.
           # no sfv comments at all on release as an option.
             - requested by Daniel.

           * cover naming, now including groups extension like nfo/sfv/m3u.
           * selecting OST will you now still enable to insert an artist, so it
             should be easier  to make OST-FLICK-2012-OB84 as  well as  with an
             artist  like   OST-Alan_Silvester--FLICK-2012-OB84,   to  separate
             artist from title correctly.
           * _INT was set twice (at releasename as well as behind group).
             - all reported by TaZ.

             - reported by fucked.

             to maximize the form did result in misbehaviour.

             - both reported by anunknowndj.
           # "tag's charcase doesn't afflict #url" checkbox.
             - requested by anunknowndj.
           # new tags for time  format hh:nn:ss instead of nnn:ss (01:04:07 vs.
             64:07): #hhhPtit,  #hhhTpti and  #hhhCpti.  #hhLCpti and  #hhLTpti
             will be left aligned (total) time tags.
           # a leading zero within nnn:ss is now optional.
           # added #Format (MP3/FLAC etc.),  #Country, #2ndUrl and #Subgenre as
             new tags for .skl files (see  generic.skl). the subgenres  content
             has been taken from:
           # style combobox for filling nfo can be edited now (subgenres can be
             added manually).
           # removed some - in mp3 info (dual channel, joint stereo) and single
             channel has become mono, as well as many other cosmetics.
           # added tag #TptCTT# for displaying total cdtime, after tracklisting
             of single cd (see generic.skl as example).
           # multicd with totaltime in .nfo, as  well as releaseyear in case we
             have a multicd combo (boxset).
           # added CUEFIX, DIRFIX, PROOFFIX etc. as additional checkboxes.
           # 48kHz allowed too, due to new (web)rules.
           # releases bigger than 1gb of size will report GB for #Size tag.
           # countrylist sorted, no duplicates anymore.
           # new tag #RelWith for releaser version info.
           # not adding default url N/A to id3v2 link tag anymore.
             - all requested by Trance Force.
           * id3v2 tags like album  artist, original artist, composer, encoded,
             copyright, bpm are  not deleted  when  (re)tagging a  release with
             this kind of information already inside the file.
           * long month  names were still  localized, not english.  this means,
             that all regional  settings are  taken  from english  layout (e.g.
             decimalseparator. in case you want , instead of . you have to edit
             ini manually (section [Data], Decimalseparator=,).
             - reported by Trance Force.
           + "replace chars in  filenames" is now optional, too. comboboxes for
             all 3 tables available now, same style.
           # added #Ldate for  having the livedate  automatically inserted into
             nfo. if no livesetdate given the line with this tag will be
           # when choosing livedate then yearcombo is filled automatically, and
             releasename will be without additional yeartext then.
             - both requested by Howard.
           # "Change Umlauts" from popupmenu. you can use "replace special 
             characters" instead, since that function is now using the "ascii
             conversion for .nfo file"-table. so umlauts are already here, if
             you need other chars converted simply add them here.
             - requested by jozef.
           # additional vorbistags for FLAC, due to releaserules 2.0.
           # optional removement of FLAC pictures, due to releaserules 2.0.
           # no release of flacs possible if genre is empty.
           # extra flac vorbis tags are removed.
             - all requested by soehest, last two request optional ofcourse.

v3.4.9.0:  [ 23.05.2012 ]
           * manually edited releasename did not apply to *.nfo/*.sfv naming.
             - reported by fucked.
           * german umlauts were not converted in .nfo file for #Rnotes/#Gnews.
           * german umlauts for artist/album are always converted.
             - both reported by Stefan.
           # additional umlaut-changetable  (like for filename  conversion), to
             avoid irritations for other languages than german.
             - requested by Stefan.
          * due to the min. size of releaser's main window win7's right docking
            feature positioned the form at the middle of the screen leaving the
            min/close buttons in the invisible area. not our fault we're fixing
            the desired position in this case, though.
          + added all region code  language tags (instead  of 16 unsorted), .gb
            and .us  are "missing"  but  english  is on  top  of  the list  and
            default as before.
          * no warning anymore when an already tagged release is retagged again
            and there were no changes to the tags.
          * year's combobox is not allowing alpha chars anymore.
          ! possible additions checkboxes have been moved to a separate TPanel.
          * releasecounter didn't work anymore since switching to TTntEdit.
            - reported by diego.
          * flac ERROR_LOST_SYNC when tags are not already inside the file, and
            tagging them did result in a doubled MetadataBlock (FLACfile.pas by
            Silhwan Hyun needed to be edited).
            - reported by Anton.
          * problem with files  having APIC tags and covers included, resulting
            in a bad bitrate/freq. report.
            - reported by various people.
          * spaces in cover filenames were not converted.
            - reported by Jimmy.

v3.4.8.0:  [ 23.02.2012 ]
           # OST/MAG as special field content.
             - requested by juri.
           * multicues contained wrong filename inside.
             - detected by juri (these days. and by angelD already years ago :)
           * some unicode issues with multi-cds.
           * initialization from directoryname when having untagged files.
           * problem with  detecting multi-cds  when  not having  subdirs (e.g.
             when retagging a release).
           * shelltreeview updateproblem,  replaced  the control  with  the 3rd
             party one again.
             - last 3 issues reported by eskolaah, introduced in one of the two
               previous versions *sigh*.
           + tracknumbers of mp3's id3tag can start with 1 again in multicd re-
             leases now, optional setting (default: off, as working in previous
           + tracknumberstring of mp3's  id3v2 tag can be  track or track/total
           + searching for files can be cancelled by pressing ESC now.

v3.4.7.0:  [ 23.01.2012 ]
           ! unicode filenames can be read/written now,  but the main file- and
             foldername will be still ansi due to the rules.
           ! finished converting  all components  to  their corresponding  tnt-
             control, using mostly default components now.
           * fixed a problem with flacs w/o tracknumbers.
           * fixed a problem with centered releasename.
             - reported by zoran.
           * removing exif/iptc data even from hidden files now.
           * problem with short tags (eg #Hz),  sometimes shortened (due to the
             wrapline function feature).
             - wrapping is now optional, set or reset this flag.
           + supporting drag'drop  of folders,  so in case  you need  a unicode
             folder being processed simply  drop it, since  the standard delphi
             tshelltree doesn't support unicode.
           * cover naming didn't follow settting since ages (jpg's charcase was
             ignored when changing artist etc.)
             - reported by fucked.
           # additional 2nd artist (use checkbox in  lower part), and edit both
             separationstring and "feat."-string in your groupsettings.
             - requested by zoran.
           * *.jpg always additionally got the group's extension even if not
             wanted for *.sfv/*.nfo etc.
           # changing from  "title" vs. artist  - title" and  backwards doesn't
             focus the memo anymore, so you can  switch back, this was annoying
             and not really necessary.
           # (re)added MCD to the sources again.
             - requested by fucked.
           * some scheme  related  gui problems  with  clInactiveCaption, using
             clSkyBlue instead.  needed  fields  are colored,  white  ones  are
           * position of language string in flac releasenames according to flac
           * you can choose a new skl even if generic.skl doesn't exit, removed
             the focus on TEdit.
           + set paramstr(1) to a skl of your  choise to be able to switch bet-
             ween several *.skl files within the same application.
           + autodetecting covers can  now always ask/add/skip  instead of only
           + allowing both extensions *.jpg/.jpeg instead of only *.jpg.

v3.4.6.0:  [ 23.12.2011 ]
           * you could  still try  to choose a  splash image,  even if  it this
             feature was already removed. bringing back  the feature of you own
             splash image was  already requested again,  but imho it's  quite a
             nonsense one. so don't ask again ;)
           * some minor changes for selecting artist/title from untagged files.
           + replaced components to their corresponding tntcontrols, to be able
             to use unicode in later versions. mpgtools.pas converted from file
             to filestream for the  same purpose: being able  to handle unicode
             filenames in one of the future  releases. so unicode filenames are
             not working yet, bet we're preparing this.
           + even multicds are sortable by trackno now, and you can move tracks
             up/down in the list.
           + after editing the tracklist you can use "undo" now.
           * changed some bytes declarations  to integer for  being able to tag
             multi-cds with more than 255 tracks now.
           * no tracknumbers were  written on flacs.
           * wrong genrestring on flacs when doing "tagging all".
             - both reported by xxx.
           * wrong removing of id3v2 of flacs.
             - reported by eskolaah.
           + more detailed progress when reading the selected directory.
           * some of morgoth's typos (but might have added own ones).
           * morgoth's #size calculation was  a bit odd,  fixed. using a global
             variable instead of calculate while filling .nfo file, too.
           + updatecheck.
           + a lot of reorganization  of gui/code for a  better usage and read-
             ability of code.

v3.4.5.0:  [ 23.10.2011 ]
           * application might hang when starting ("naming engine startup ...")
             since there is a font registering routine - switched from Send- to
             PostMessage(HWND_BROADCAST, WM_FONTCHANGE here.
           - removed the ugly "ballon hints" style.
           * albumtype combo was not  reseted correctly when changing from type
             to nothing.
           # jpg's can be cleaned from exif/iptc data now.
             - requested by tc-.
           + basically ready for FLAC, so it's now a MP3/MPC/OGG/FLAC-Releaser.
             id3 of flacs will be ignored when reading the files, and be erased
             when writing the file(s) while generating a release.
           ! optional feature: the ShellTreeView  will not be automatically up-
             dated (use F5  to refresh manually  if needed)  - you can  use the
             contextmenu for this settings.
           * setting genre did reset type combo of the "fillout" tabsheet since
             ages, fixed now.
           + more detailed progress logging.
           ! some  kind of  refactoring,  little better  layout  for an  easier
           + automatically switching back to first tab after generating the re-

v3.4.4.0:  [ 23.09.2011 ]

           + more detailed progress logging.

v3.4.2.0:  [ 10.01.2010 ]
           ! usage of ID3V2 default ON now.
           * some source and types autoset changes.
           ! allow VBR default ON now.
           ! default filename length limit default "if longer than 128 chars"
           + shortcuts ctrl+1..5 to access all the tabsheets.
           + file's id3v2 trackstring now contains currno/totalno.

v3.4.1.0:  [ 05.01.2010 ]
           + the special strings now can be toggled in caps/capitalized.
           ! ctrl+a now does a "select all" in all memo/edit fields.
           * liveset date will be inserted before proper/trackfix stuff.
           * several minor fixes.

v3.4.0.0:  [ 02.01.2010 ]
           * sources/types reorganized, suggestions implemented.
           + you can choose a date to be inserted into the releasename.
             configure the format via "Settings > Release Naming Options". use
             the checkbox in the bottom to set it ON or OFF.
           + new checkbox to mark a release as PROPER, TRACKFIX, READNFO or

           + dircase now has "like u typed" setting as well.
           + new general source "Flash".
           * some source code "optimizations", i guess we introduced some new
             bugs here :)
           * single .cue file didn't contain correct filename when being

v3.3.8.0:  [ 03.08.2009 ]
           * changing label/catno on nfo tabsheet did change releasename
             in case the name was edited manually afterwards again.

v3.3.7.0:  [ 21.06.2009 ]
           * avg. bitrate string setting not stored correctly.
           + additional cat-no. string on first tab.
           + catno and label can be included into the releasename w/o
           ! refactorized parts of the spaghetti-code.

v3.3.6.0:  [ 15.10.2008 ]
           * group setting: language/abbreviation. setting was not stored,
             changes were not applied, seem to have never worked at all. the
             default for norwegian/dutch was switched, spanish was simply
             wrong - it's correct now. the spellfix is for free this time :P

v3.3.5.0:  [ 03.10.2008 ]
           ! enlarged "Brkps" message, so you can react now.
           # "convert all ASCII > 126 for .nfo files" option. if unchecked
             (which i dont suggest, and should not be used at all since only
             ascii chars 33..126 should be used) there won't be any change
             of chars in title/label etc. in the .nfo file. use at own risk!
           * no loss of company/label and url when going back on tabs.

v3.3.4.4:  [ 24.02.2007 ]
           # if no year in id3tag, then current year is selected as default.
           # removed entries with dots in "Special" and "VA/OST" comboboxes.
           * correct naming of the .cue file in single-cue mode.

v3.3.4.3:  [ 01.02.2007 ]
           + support of #RName tags in skl, will add releasename to your .nfo
           * 2 or more .cue files with same count of mp3 files. new bugs might
             appear here (the code is WEIRD: don't wonder).
           + add your own "Additions", e.g. WEB (uh? ;), and next time you
             start those additions are available again.

v3.3.4.2:  [ 28.01.2007 ]
           * vbr bitrate was not calculated exactly, fixed.
           * nfo/sfv/m3u charcase wasn't set at all correctly (since ages).

v3.3.4.1:  [ 20.01.2007 ]
           # vbr avg. bitrate instead of only "VBR".
           # new sources, you may add your own now, new items will be saved.
           # id3v1.1 ON as default (new releasing rules), you will be warned
             when disabling this.
           # "avg." string for vbr bitrate can be changed now, see group
             settings tab. and save the changes before you continue ;)

v3.3.3.0:  [ 17.03.2006 ]
           # "Release Naming Options > Misc > add Labeltag to files only,
             NOT to directory", this will skip labeltag from directories,
