If you do still have the problem, to narrow down the cause, does it only ever happen when switching between normal and mini modes, never when switching skins? Also, does it occur even if you have not used an alpha channel skin (eg. Cypress's test skin) at any point since XMPlay was loaded? One thing you could try is adding a "Layered=1" line to your XMPLAY.INI file to enable layered mode windows for all skins.

I'll check those things after I get a root canal this morning.  I'm trying to stay optimistic, you know?

If I switch on the equalizer or reverb, the sound can even disappear completely.

Must be that new transparent setting!

The fact that the device manager lists the hard drive as "ST9320325AS" looks suspicious to me, but it could be just a serial code. Still, if the owners don't credit themselves for what they did, then I guess it isn't that a great product, right?

Uh, an "ST9320325AS" is a Seagate Momentus 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache 2.5" SATA 3.0Gb/s Internal Notebook Hard Drive.  Seems like a logical device manager entry in the hard drive category.  Here's a link to the drive at NewEgg (currently priced at $55):

On the laptop now.  Got the same transparent effect on the Neutron skin, but didn't see any other issues with any other skins.

Lenovo i5 laptop S510, purchased with Windows 8 x64 installed, Intel HD Graphics 4000 with igdumd64 driver.

Oh, skin stayed this way until I pushed it into mini and back.

Turning off automini helped a lot, but there's still a bit of strangeness (note the missing slider handle in the screen cap).

Desktop computer, Win 8 x64 (upgrade from Windows 7), Intel G45 Graphics 1 Card (onboard), igdumd64 driver, 1920x1080 resolution.

I'll try the laptop later... don't have time right now.

Edit: Just noticed that the loop and random buttons are transparent in the screen cap.

Here's default skin with no handles.

Edit: These caps are running radio, so there's no progress bar, in case you noticed it was "missing'.

Better, but still not 100% right.

Things seem to work correctly eventually, but sometimes the mini mode shows up briefly with some corruption.  Also, even on the normal mode strange things happened.  Hard to explain, but the spots in my previous caps which showed the brightly colored "transparent" spots end up showing as transparent even though things were supposed to be there.  For instance, on the default skin, the screen cap showed bright green spots on either side, which is where the slider handles live, and for a short time the handles weren't there and then they filled in.  

When switching to the Euphoria skin, in normal mode, the panels are ALWAYS open, and the controls require two clicks to retract them.  Then going into mini showed the corruption for a split second before showing the correct mini.

And on occasion, Neutron starts up looking like the cap below.  I had to take full screen and crop the cap because taking active window only didn't show this same effect (odd).

Oh.... as I'm playing with this, AutoMini does not work in 3.7.0.7.

I figured it out.

I put XMPlay 3.7.0.7 into its own directory, ran it to build the startup ini, and copied the Euphoria skin, Rated skin, and the Rated alpha source folder into that directory.

Then I gradually started copying various dlls into the directory, testing along the way, until I had everything from my old installation copied to the new one.  It kept working fine, both in normal size and mini size. 

I realized that the virgin ini didn't have automini set.  As soon as I added that line, the effects happened just like the screen caps I posted earlier.  Removing automini from xmplay.ini made everything work fine again.

That didn't trigger ALL of the same problems, so maybe there is something else in the ini that is affecting the screen drawing (maybe automini delay)?

Firebrand, what version of XMPlay are you using?

Edit: The issue is most apparent with version 3.7.0.7.  If you are using any other version, it probably all looks OK.

XMPlay 3.7.0.7 on Win 8 x64 on the desktop (not that awful blocky Metro tile stuff).  I'll be bringing out the Win 8 laptop in a few hours to get it ready for travel, and I'll test it on that platform to eliminate video card/driver weirdness issues.

On the Windows 8 laptop now.  Tried 3.7.0.1 (that's what was on the laptop) and things worked pretty well.  The Rated alpha has the same blocky black background as on the desktop computer.  Downloaded 3.7.0.7, and got the exactly the same behavior as documented previously.  The mini-mode of every skin I tried is corrupted.  They all returned to normal on return to normal mode (hah!  that's funny).  The Rated alpha skin crashed XMPlay on mouseover of the mini-mode.

So, that eliminates the computer, video card, and driver as culprits.

What did you find, Firebrand?

ohhhhh the alpha channel really makes the interface nicer ... and yes adding the alpha channel to the knobs, buttons, slider, works as expected Smiley

regarding bitmap corruptions with other skins everything looks just fine, i'm also running win7

Rated Alpha test2 attached:

Yes, the alpha does look nice.  Unfortunate that Windows 8 has eliminated that visual in their efforts to force consistency with tablets and smartphones, with touch-screens and running all apps maximized, full-screen.  Idiots!  But in forcing that consistency, they are setting the stage for Windows 8 domination of the tablet and smartphone OS wars that they are presently losing to Android.

I had high hopes for this Rated version since it ran in normal mode nicely.  It even went into mini-mode with no issues.  On mouseover, it drew a large rectangular grey box the width of the mini-GUI, and then crashed.  Offered to send error report.  Bah!

Interesting that the regular Rated skin (and most others) get corrupted in mini-mode, but the alpha one did not.  Other skins will return to normal mode without crashing.

XMPlay 3.7.0.7 on Win 8 x64 on the desktop (not that awful blocky Metro tile stuff).  I'll be bringing out the Win 8 laptop in a few hours to get it ready for travel, and I'll test it on that platform to eliminate video card/driver weirdness issues.

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.
