After tagging the front cover in advanced tag editior it seems that the pictures are doubled.
Great to hear that the fix worked Martin.
FYI: We have changed the name of the setting to "Save album artist with full external compatibility" to make it more clear what it does.
Also great to hear that the general usage flow now works, thanks for all testing assistance!
doubled pictures seems to be solved. But related to doubled pictures it seems that tagging is still somewhat strange. When tagging because of doubled pictures Helium only the first track at album from New Dubby Conquerors [MP3] to New Dubby Conquerors. (I think I told Helium to rename it all).
Any the album to shown as New Dubby Conquerors [MP3] while the first track under New Dubby Conquerors but in tags it says New Dubby Conquerors [MP3]. (MP3tag displays it correctly)
Additional I can't get away Seeed Seeed in album artist too. MP3tag shows Seeed = onetime correctly!
Through tagging with each track it says Seeed on each entry but after tagging it is still Seeed Seeed.
Somehow the tagging process is not updating the files correctly.
I tried to reproduce this the following way:
1) Added your original file with doubled pictures, Seeed - 05 - Dickes B _28feat. Black Kappa_29.mp3, to a new database
2) Opened it in the Advanced Tag Editor > Album artist = Seed, Album = New Dubby Conquerors [Mp3]
3) Changed album to "New Dubby Conquerors"
4) Removed the pictures and added the correct one, the same way as in your earlier screenshots
5) Saved the changed
I then opened the file from Properties:
Album is correctly updated to "New Dubby Conquerors".(TALB)
Open the file with the Advanced Tag Editor shows also the updated album as well as in the Releases view.
Maybe I need to test this with some other file which contains album artist set to "Seeed seeed" , so that we use the same files for testing?
I will try to find out the best way to do a setting "Save in compatible ID3v2 mode" which will disable band/orchestra (term not used in other applications), but save album artist for this field and not duplicate it to a TXXX field, if set.
Please avoid use build 14320 for testing since I will change the logic.
Ok, here's a new build with changed logic:
A new option (set to true by default) is now available "Save in compatible ID3v2" mode.
When this option is set, the following will happen:
When reading album artist, TPE2 will be prioritized, if not set, TXXX will be used
When set, the Band/Orchestra field will be disabled.
Album artist is enabled. (Applies to the Tag editor and the Advanced tag editor)
When set, only the TPE2 field will be written with the contents from the album artist field to mimic the behavior of MP3Tag.
If any AlbumArtist TXXX tags exists, they will be removed to avoid duplicated data.
I have tested this with MP3Tag where it works correct as well as in Foobar where it also works correct.
I avoided to test it with Tag & Rename since Windows Defender flagged their installer as untrusted ;)
When this setting is not active, it will work as before, allowing the end-user to use both Band/orchestra and Album artist.
So, please test this now logic, I hope it will work for you.
