here is my album mod patch that basically adds features that i really love to Rockbox, which i am beginning to love :) it uses the Double Click patch ( FS#7555 ) that i already submitted. Here is the functionality described more fully:

While in WPS screen, Double-clicking the OK button will queue the entire album of the currently playing track. it will then start playing the album from track 1.

While in WPS screen, double-clicking the right (ffwd) button will skip all track in the current album, and start playing on the first track of the playlist that is not the current album.

While in WPS screen, double-clicking the left (rewind) button will start playing the first track of the album currently playing... that it finds previous to the current track. in other words, it backs up one by one until it finds a track that isn't on the current album, and then plays the next track.

this is only enabled for Ipod Video currently. If you wish to enable this functionality for other players, then modify the Double Click patch to work with your player, as described in the Double Click patch post. Then modify this patch to work with your player, by adding the double click commands to the player's keymap c file, in the wps section. follow the same format and placement as in keymap-ipod.c.

please let me know of any problems found.

i have noticed a few graphical glitches when queueing a new album, and have tried to fix them, but haven't succeeded very well. if anyone knows how to force a redraw of the wps screen, then let me know, or post your own patch.

have fun!
