201  Developments / XMPlay / Re: Alpha Support for the Skinning engine on: 22 Jan '13 - 19:08
Are you sure that you are running the latest executable? No corruptions here, neither with the default skin, nor with Neutron.

Are you running Win 8?

I double checked the exact version by looking at the bottom of the Options and stuff page.  It says 3.7.0.7.

Just because I have too much time on my hands:
3.7.0.1 - seems OK on all skins except Rated alpha where the background of the skin is a big black square with a small white square in the upper right corner and a white bar on the lower right corner.
3.7.0.2 - don't have it.
3.7.0.3 - same as 3.7.0.1.
3.7.0.4 - Rated alpha does not show on the desktop at all, even when running.  Can only control by right clicking the system tray icon and picking Options and stuff and manually changing the skin to something else.  Other skins show no ill effects.
3.7.0.5 - don't have it.
3.7.0.6 - same as 3.7.0.4.
3.7.0.7 - As originally described.  Rated alpha crashes XMPlay when auto changing from mini to regular mode with mouseover.  All other skins have the mini-mode corrupted (but no crashes).  Many other skins have bright green bits in the corners or elsewhere which are probably remnants of transparent color that didn't matter when they were used with previous versions.

Skins that I have on hand:
Default
Aiwa
MMD3 (three different colors)
Neutron medium
Royale Vista
WAModern (three different colors)
~\Rated\


Edit:  I also have a laptop running Windows 8.  I'll give it a try later this evening.

Got some strange behavior on Win 8 x64 with this new alpha Rated skin and issues with all other skins.  Using XMPlay 3.7.0.7.

Reproducible: With this new alpha Rated skin selected, double-click to trigger mini-mode.  Mousing-over the mini skin corrupts the layout and crashes XMPlay hard.

All other skins, even default: Put into mini-mode.  Layout is corrupted with a bright-green spots in various places (maybe vestigal transparent color?) and a good portion of the elements aren't in the right places.  Mouse-over moves the skin and changes layout, but it does not become big.  Double-clicking return the skin to normal.  No crashes.

What about a NoMini option?

Not much has been going on in skinning for a while, and now we are seeing the evolutionary process that a skinning idea takes.

IMHO, you are reviving interest in the skinning of XMPlay.  Bravo to you!

Your minimalist skin idea has brought back a thought I had a quite a while back.  I was looking for a skin to use for internet radio streams.  There are a variety of skin elements that are superfluous, such as position in a track.  There are other elements that are of more interest, such as URL, name, and IP that could appear on the normal skin but could be left off of the mini-mode.  I am horrible at graphical stuff so I won't subject everybody here to any attempts, but maybe you or someone else could take a shot at it sometime?

Again, thanks for your skinning efforts.

While that's true Jace, I think that robertcollier4 would like to have strange little work-arounds like this one and the code for the escape key more up front and intuitive for new and/or ordinary users. 

It moves it from "stuff you have to already know" to "stuff you can see."  (And as an aside, that's the reason for Windows GUI popularity over DOS.)

Stuff is the beta version.  The 3.7 version is the latest, and doesn't have a beta beyond the release version (yet).

I second the request for a middle-click alternative.  It is hard using the scroll-wheel on a two-button mouse to send a middle-click without scrolling and messing things up.  I gave up long ago.  I never did figure out what I could do when I was forced into using the trackpad on a laptop.

Something to keep in mind is that "browse~1.dll" is a shortened name in Windows old-style 8.3 naming convention.  The file could actually be browserfortheheckofit.dll or something like that.

This reminds me of an issue I had with SHN files a while back.

The file would play the entire length but would not convert or write to disk using XMPlay (or any other tool) beyond 5:41.

http://www.un4seen.com/forum/?topic=12648.msg87803#msg87803

I gave up on the issue and figured it wasn't meant to be.  Don't know know if this could be related.  The time is different, but maybe there's a header or memory issue somewhere or something.

Works fine here with 3.6.0.70, tested with several skins.

Sounds like a corrupted ini file.  You can try putting xmplay.exe into an otherwise empty directory and try running it from there.  It will build a new ini and you can test from there.

If it works OK there, then you know that the old ini file is the issue.

219  Developments / XMPlay / Re: Problem with 7zip plugin ? on: 10 Sep '12 - 15:23
At one point, I was downloading live concerts.  I made a txt file in the directory so I could record background data such as date, venue, and special notes such as replacement musicians, cameo appearances, etc.  That file would stop the folder from playing until I specifically excluded the txt extension in the XMPlay options.  I suspect the same thing is happening with the folder holding the extracted archive if it includes a txt file.

Under Options and stuff, Playlist, Ignore filetypes - make sure it shows txt as an extension.
