The syntax has changed in WinFF v1.4.2.
The new Additional Command Line Parameter is "map_metadata 0" (without the quotes).

But with WinFF v1.4.2 the file tags are preserved automatically, so there's no need to use the additional parameter.

If, for some reason, you DON'T want to preserve the file tags the Additional Command Line Parameter is "map_metadata -1" (without the quotes).
