Why do we need 2 lines per song when parsing?

[2019/02/22 19:02:55]:  - Parsing song data from: ...\Rocksmith2014\dlc\The Agonist_Business Suits and Combat Boots_NA_p.psarc
[2019/02/22 19:02:55]:  - The Agonist_Business Suits and Combat Boots_NA_p.psarc parsing took: 11 (msec)


Log file is twice as long.


Both lines repeat the song name.

"Parsing song data from:" is redundant info as we know they are being parsed.

When reading the lines as they are read, "Parsing song data from:" doesnt allow to read the alphabetical order. It only used to show 1 line in previous versions and it was helpful as user could see where the parsing progress was alphabetically.

Line 1 only says name.

Line 2 says name and time.


I would only use line 2!

The first one says the file being is being parsed and the second one says when its finished. Say it crashes during this process and you only have the first line you can assume it was that songs fault.


As for parsing alphabetically I guess it does it by filename not by song name 


Although I'm no dev and I'm just guessing here.

OK at Everything but not good at anything, well its OK I guess. This is just another thing I'm having a go at.

My todo list (although I mostly just make whatever)

Parsing info is logged for debugging use.  Click on 'Hide Log' in the lower left corner if you would rather not see the Log.

If you only have 1 line and it stops there, you know it was that song. There is no need to say Finish this song and then say Start next song. Again, its redundant.


I was happy seeing the log when it was 1 line, as I could see the scan progress.
