Secret settings
« on: 20 Nov '09 - 16:43 »
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.

Thanks for the listing.  Do you mind if I elaborate each one to help other users?

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

I can't get NoListExt=1 to work. Does nothing. v3.5.0.5

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.

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  ???

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.
