Difference: ShuffleExplained (r2 vs. r1)
When we designed and created the Rockbox shuffle concept, we had a few goals:
All song playing in Rockbox works on a list of songs. When you play a dir, it builds a list of song internally and plays that. If you play a playlist, it loads that list and plays it. (Playlists are stored internally as a long list of indexes into a file on disk where the actual song name is stored.)
Rockbox generates a random seed and re-orders the internal list with the random function (Mersenne ( Twister). When storing resume info, the random seed is stored and thus later re-used again when the same random order is wanted. Mersenne Twister). When storing resume info, the random seed is stored and thus later re-used again when the same random order is wanted.
