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

Dunno... seems like zero step is saying "don't do this" or "don't listen to the wheel".

Much better than the program actually exiting unexpectedly  Huh

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.

Ah, I see the difference now.

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

Sorry to say, but no, it doesn't help Sad.

As I said, I tried "NoWheelVol=1", but still the wheel changes volume as before.

Here it works fine as intended. I am using "stuff" version 3.6.0.8, WinXP SP3. Have you tried a fresh copy of XMPlay with a new xmplay.ini?

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

Just to be sure, you have only one [XMPlay] section in your xmplay.ini?

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.

Ok, if you now add a VolStep=10 line right under the NoWheelVol line, does XMPlay use that value?

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

I guess I'll just send the file to Ian to have a look at. I've tried all the "basic" stuff that comes to mind at least Roll Eyes. (Sent)

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?

Honestly not trying to be rude or anything, but what is the version of XMPlay.exe?  (Is it new enough to support the desired features?)

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.
