Re: new extension for talkbox directory clip: ".dirname.tbx"

 I installed build of 10 april, regenerated the clips naming .dirname.tbx
but they dont work: folders are spelled with numbers but in general
settings>voice the setting is "arrowing"; tbx files are not played when
arrowing, neither on enter.
what am i missing?

To minimize the inconvenience, here's a version of the script that will
rename any existing .dirname.mp3 files to the new .tbx extension if such
a file does not already exist. If you've got the OverwriteTBX flag set
to true (it is false by default), or a .tbx file already exists, it'll
just delete the old .dirname.mp3 file to help you clean up. For most
people and most cases, you won't need to change any of the default
settings. You may want to wait and see if Jörg wants to change any of
the Lame options before generating new clips (as opposed to just
renaming old ones), just in case.
