I have a few files in my library which foobar refuses to split tags in.

What's going on here?
Files are MP3 CBR, I'm using the splitting function.

Who knows? You haven’t really provided enough information.

What version of ID3v2 are you using? If it’s v2.3, this is by design.

Edit: Nope, maybe not; it says TPE1 should be supported, and that is indeed artist, whereas I thought it was album artist.

Yep, those files were indeed 2.3. Tags are split correctly in 2.4.

Thereís still the issue of why artist isnít split. And I would have guessed genre would also be included in the acceptable list for ID3v2.3, at least if that were generally a sensible standardÖ!

Out of interest, are all fields you wish to split set as multi-value fields in foobar2000ís Preferences? If not, does enabling them make any difference to ID3v2.3?

Someone with more experience of this than me can hopefully shed some light on why artist wasnít split, etc.

Artist is split, or am I misunderstanding you?

Oh, sorry, so itís just the genre that isnít splitting. I find conflicting information online about whether multi-value genres are supported at all, or if so, whether they should be implemented in one or multiple TCON frames. Anyway, Iím just thinking aloud, really. If genre is already in fb2kís list of multi-value fields, I donít know what else to suggest; perhaps someone else does.

Interesting screenshot in that the genre appears to be shown as being split in the "now playing" area but as being not split in the "library tree".

EDIT:
It looks to me as though foobar is splitting the genre but the library tree isn't detecting it for some reason. You could verify that the genre is split by $meta_num(genre). If it returns the correct number of genres for that file then you know the genre is indeed being split.

The genre is not shown split anywhere. The artist is shown split everywhere.
Notice the space between the values for artist and no space on the genre.

I converted the tags to 2.4 and now everything is working as it should.

//Edit
Oh you mean that NowPlaying area. That sure is weird.
So the tag is split but the LibraryTree and PlaylistView cant handle it. Interesting.
