I remembered seeing a setting some time ago that would suppress the pause button flashing.  In my forum searches, I came across some old threads for previous versions of XMPlay calling these manual .ini entries "secret settings".

I didn't find a list of such settings for the current version, so I began compiling one.  I'm sure that I've got the usage/intent wrong on some, missed some, or included some that are obsolete.

Anyway, here's what I've got:
  • NoFlashPause - Disable pause button flashing
  • NoREG - Disable Windows registry use (still needed?)
  • NoHistory - Disable URL/folder/search history
  • NoLameRG - Disable lame replay gain
  • Boost - Increase Windows priority
  • NoCheckDead - Disable folder scanning for dead tracks
  • NoListExt - Remove extension column from extended playlist
  • SingleClickTray - Restoring to/from tray icon with single click
  • NoWheelVol - Disable mouse wheel volume control (still works?)
  • NoScanList - Disable scanning of playlist entries
  • NoFlashTotal - Disable flashing list time between total and selected tracks

I still didn't find a setting to disable flashing of the elapsed time when pause is activated.  NoFlashPause doesn't cover that.

A forum search should reveal what each of them does Smiley

I just tested stuff 136, and NoHistory apparently still works as intended.

Right-click any track in the playlist > Display columns > untick 'Type'. This was added in 3.5.0.1.

Oh.

Thanks.

(Would make more sense to have that context menu pop up when clicking the playlist background, and not a track, though)

You're welcome.  I do the same here, even if many of them aren't activated.

I'll try to keep the list updated for reference purposes.

Yes it is indeed. In this case, the number is equivalent to the adjustment being made in the mouse wheel. Therefore, if you set it to VolStep=1, it will adjust the volume on a one by one basis, and if you set it to VolStep=0, the program XMPlay will exit.

Its seems as though VolStep=0 should be the equivalent of (and could replace) NoWheelVol.

Edit: And rename the setting "WheelVol".

NoWheelVol determines whether the wheel controls volume when mouse is not over a scrollable control. It's unrelated to wheel step size.

The two options are not the same. NoWheelVol=1 disables scroll wheel volume control when hovering for example the title area, but still allows you to control the volume when hovering the volume bar. VolStep=0 would disable both.

I can't seem to be able to get the "NoWheelVol" setting to work. I've tried adding lines "NoWheelVol", "NoWheelVol=1" and "VolStep=0" in xmplay.ini, under "[XMPlay]", but still the volume keeps changing whenever I move the wheel anywhere except the list and other parts of the GUI where the wheel has another function.

I've closed the player in between and so on, but nothing seems to change... what am I doing wrong?  Huh

NoWheelVol=0 (Default)
VolStep=3 (Default)

NoWheelVol=1 You're going to disable the wheel volume.

Hope this helps Smiley

The wheel controls volume when the volume slider has focus.  I believe NoWheelVol determines if the wheel will control volume regardless of focus.

Yes, only one "[XMPlay]" section. I've had that "NoWheelVol=1" line there for quite a while already (closing and opening the player many times in between), but as said the mousewheel changes the volume as before.

Nope, that doesn't do anything either, with or without the "NoWheelVol" line.

Trying your XMPLAY.INI file here, its "NoWheelVol" and "VolStep" settings are working fine. One possibility that comes to mind is that you could be editing an unused XMPLAY.INI file, eg. perhaps per-user config is enabled but you're editing the XMPLAY.INI file in the XMPlay installation directory rather than the per-user XMPlay directory? Are other XMPLAY.INI changes having effect, eg. does "Mini=1" cause XMPlay to start in mini-mode?

The "Store per-user config/etc" is unticked, and I have never used the setting - I've always dealt with the file(s) in XMPlay's own directory. Other "ini settings" don't have an effect either.

One strange thing I noticed, is that I can't directly edit xmplay.ini - Windows won't let me save it after making changes, but just tells me "Access denied". However, making the changes somewhere else than "Program Files", then moving and replacing the existing file works ok. I wonder if it's related to this one Roll Eyes.

I'm always using the latest version of XMPlay. Oh, and Win 7 too.

That's UAC (User Account Control) causing your problems. Smiley

Take a look in:
c:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\XMPlay (the italic is just an assumption; after you get to the VirtualStore, you should be able to figure it out Smiley )

And there I have a feeling you will find an xmplay.ini (and maybe even other files, such as the playlist, library, and so on). Try changing that file and see if it works.

I've switched to Win 7 quite recently, and I don't know all the gimmicks of this thing yet. Is this really needed though? It's not a big trouble using the other folder for stuff like this, but I'd still prefer the good old way of doing things Smiley.

Programs are launched under standard user privileges by default, so they can't write to C:\Program Files\. If they try to write there anyway, Win7 puts that in the Virtualization folder, so the changes don't get lost but apply for the current user only.

[edit]
Ian, how about forcing 'Store per-user config/etc' to be ticked on Win7 when XMPlay is launched without elevated privileges?

Please, no forcing per-user config.  That would give problems to people who expect XMPlay to run in "portable" (local ini) mode, regardless of the underlying operating system.

Ok, then check for Win7 & xmplay.exe in a system folder & regular privileges.

The alternatives for that would be:
- either force XMPlay to run with Admin privileges (Properties -> Compatibility -> Always run as Administrator). But then you'll have to deal with an UAC alert every time you run XMPlay

- or just "install" (move) XMPlay to another location, not in Program Files. I personally have a completely separate partition where I install all applications. Even though UAC is enabled with default settings, all applications can write as they wish their own files. My VirtualStore is empty (except two ini files, from the Windows folder, which I have no idea how they got there Tongue ).


About Dotpitch's suggestion: And Vista. Don't forget Vista. It also has it's own UAC system. Grin
However, for a one-user system, I don't see the big difference between having the settings/playlist in the user folder and having them in the VirtualStore. It's the same thing: a location where XMPlay is not installed, but only writes it's files. So it could very well remain like this. Tongue
Or, if it's any detection going to be involved, the default setting should be "ProgramData", not "per-user config". It will still be a global location (for all users), and XMPlay will be able to write to it without UAC interfering. Otherwise, on Vista/7 there won't be any solution for global settings in XMPlay. It will be either "per-user config", either virtualized by UAC (and will also get to a per-user location, because the VirtualStore is, well... per-user Smiley )

There are some programs that determine if they are "portable" (need to use a local ini file) or "installed" (and use the registry, etc) by seeing if they are installed in the Program Files folder.

Others will publish an exe installer which assumes registry and per-user ini, and a simple zip file that is configured to unpack and run defaulted to portable settings.

Still others will have the exe installer ask if the install is intended to be portable or local, and proceeds accordingly.

No matter what else, I like to know what to expect when I handle a distribution package.

Dotpitch's string of tests is pretty good.

Edit:  Some will determine "portable" if they see an ini file in the same directory as the main exe file.

Manually edit xmplay.ini with a text editor of some kind like Notepad (do not use a word processor).

Under the [XMPlay] section, insert a line that says:
NoFlashPause=1

I think this and the Single click icon should be made default!!

But thanks for the help.
