Thank a lot for such wonderful program!

There are two suggestions which hopefully can help make TC better. Both of them are related to CRC creation.

1) Ability to save "Create separate SFV files for each file" last state in wincmd.ini.

2) CRC filename should be constructed as filename + extension + crc-extension.
Suppose we have two files: Lion.avi and Lion.srt.
Checksums for them should be named Lion.avi.sha and Lion.srt.sha.
I know that this can be achieved by using *.*.sha mask instead of the default *.sha, but the mask is not saved for the future use, and it is annoying to put it by hands every time.

Thank you!

Is it possible to implement this small feature in TC 8.0?

Does anyone use TC for checksum generation?

Still wonder if nobody use TC for SHA and MD5 generation.

Well, this suggestions have been posted before (more than once).
I think board members are tired of discussing this items again and again.

Please use board search to find the answer ...

Well searching for e.g. "Create separate SFV files for each file" has just 2 hits, one of them is TC Behaviour which will not be changed - CRC-Creation on directory of Sep 20, 2011 covering point 2)

If you check my first you will see that I am requesting ability to save state in ini file. This will completely solve the problem. And I wonder why Christian have not added this before and have not posted anything in this thread.

Could anyone point the topic where Christian has told that this problem will never be fixed?

TC 8.0 beta 8.

Niether "Create separate SFV files for each file" state nor checksum mask are saved.

That's probably because no one promised this change for beta 8. ;)

But I must agree with your suggestion. If fact, the whole checksum dialog deserves update. Starting with that famous confusing way how to select algorithm (MD5 and SHA1 checkboxes behaving like radio buttons and SFV not really mentioned anywhere, but selected by unchecking both).

If selected checksum type is saved, then why not also save the state of checkbox for using separate files? Selecting it over and over again is not any less annoying than selecting checksum type over and over again would be. They are equally important, but one is saved, while the other isn't. Strange.

Saving of mask is a little more complicated. It's not possible to automatically save the string from file name field (e.g. c:\path\to\some.md5), because it would not make sense elsewhere. It would probably require separate option for default file mask. I once thought using *.*.ext would be good idea for myself, but it's simply not feasible to rewrite it every single time. Perhaps the best solution could be some simple template/profile system which would allow to define several favourite settings like:

- create md5 checksums and save them into one file "my favorite checksums name.md5"
- create md5 checksums and save them into one file "<parent dir name>.md5"
- create md5 checksums and save them into separate files "<file name>.<file extension>.md5"
- create sfv checksums and save them info one file "%any_variable%.sfv"
- etc...

I mean something really flexible (the above is only quick thought). Because currently if user wants anything other than defaults (e.g. I often like to save per-directory checksums in file "crc.sfv"), it means endless retyping or the same thing.

Sob, thank you for the detailed answer.

I will try to summarize:

1) "Separate files" option should be saved.
2) Checksum type options should be turned to radio buttons or the ability to select more than one checksum type should be added.
3) SVF type should be shown.

Currently used checksum file name creation way is quite logical except of file extension is ignored. Therefore I think that it will be enough add the ability to include file extension. This can be implemented as option for backward compatibility. So,

4) Ability to include file extension.

Hope Christian will read the last post and tell us his decision.

Christian, are there any chances to see the requested feature implemented in 8.1?

I will add it to my wish list. I think that a switch similar to the AppendLnk switch would do.
