Anybody using Musicbee to edit tags - either through autotag or manually?

I've got MB3.2 installed using basically the same instructions as in the previous post, but when I try to save any tag changes I get a "file already exists" type error with just options to retry or cancel. I can't figure out how to allow a rewrite

I've tried everything, from almost all winetricks, to making different bottles with different wine versions (or staging), changing registry settings, things like language envs, nothing works.

I just realized all .png files are 0b at /drive_c/MusicBee/AppData/InternalCache/AlbumCovers/NUMBER/B1234_5678.png and if I replace them with some random image, MusicBee shows them without a problem.

So the problem is when the embedded artwork is getting cached (thumbnail generator?) or something like that.

When I used Windows I used the option "Search Internet for Picture" and I used the iTunes and Fanart.tv images but when I starting using Linux it said that it was an invalid picture on both of them

With this version of MB, set the Preferences/Player/output selection to DirectSound and it will retain compatibility with the old DirectSound API using newer versions of bass.dll

unzip and replace the existing MusicBee files
New version 3.3 of MusicBee suffers the same problem on wine. If I don't ask too much, could you make a patch for it?

the instruction remains the same and is still supported - just change the output API in the Player preferences to DirectSound

Nevermind! It was a problem of mine missing some wine libraries since I'm on a fresh install.
New version works out of the box with WASAPI.
If everyone is wondering, you also need to install Net Framework 4.6.1 or the new version of MusicBee won't start.

Anyway, thanks for the reply as always  :)
