Bug Fixes
Major New Features Buttons! Instead of old and bland reactions, we now use buttons for most things! These are better in terms of visuals and give a better user experience. Example:
Context Menus! Ever want to add tracks to the queue or search for lyrics without the need of typing in with a command? With these context menus, all you need to do is right-click the mesage, click Apps, and click on the button you want!
Player Control Channel System!
Allows members to go to a specific channel that the server has set and play tracks from there by simply sending the track name, link, file, etc. The channel is kept clean and all messages are deleted!
Dropdown Menus! We now utilize dropdown menus in commands like ;search, allowing you to choose from the top 10 songs. Try it out for yourself to see! Example:
Autoplay! Something we've been trying to figure out and work on for a very long time! Premium servers have the option to enable this setting which will continue to queue similar songs of the same type/genre/artist, even after the queue has ended. This way, you don't have to search for more similar songs yourself! Personalized!
You can now enjoy a personalized experience with StormBeatz, tailored entirely to YOU! Get your top songs, artists, genres, and Premium users can even get a song recommendations playlist based on their music taste! Soundboard System! You can now play saved files/links using the ;soundboard command. Great to troll your friends with hilarious sounds. Regular servers may save up to 5 sounds, premium servers may have up to 20.
Autopause Setting! The bot will automatically pause if all listeners leave, and automatically resume when a listener joins!
Voice Channels Setting! Restrict StormBeatz to specific voice channels!
Rejoin Command!
The bot will rejoin the voice channel without deleting the queue!
Queue History! View previously queued tracks with the ;queue history command! Autocomplete! Slash commands like play will automatically give you search suggetions as you type!
Command Additions/Changes! Some commands have gotten some slight additions or improvements. For example, the ;back command now accepts an optional argument for how many songs to go back by. You can also use the command even when nothing is playing now. Slash Commands Revamp! No more subcommands integrated into messy slash commands! All of our bot commands are now synced with our slash commands, so for example, ;forceskip and /forceskip are both valid now, rather than ;forceskip and /skip force like you would usually need to do. Not only does this give more consistency in general, but also gives our users a more friendly user-friendly experience and reduces confusion. Instantaneous Track & Playlist Load Time! We know that the load time for tracks in v4 and previous versions were very slow and inconvenient especially for large playlists. Say goodbye to that hassle now because the bot can now load hundreds of tracks in a playlist instantly now! Announce Songs Setting! Instead of choosing specific channel(s) for the bot to announce whenever a new song gets played, it will now send it directly to the channel the command was used in. Queue size limit increased!
10000 tracks for premium servers and 1000 tracks for regular servers!
Bug fixes include the volume not saving properly when the bot plays a new track, some commands returning errors, slash commands not working randomly, the music player returning 403, 503, age-restricted errors, etc. have now been fixed. No more annoying and pesky bugs!
