Hi, I Just found XMPlay the other day. I absolutely love it! I will never be forced to use that bloated winamp again! Hooray! (And All of my favorite plug-ins work too! Double Yay!)
All It needed was a new skin. (The default was a little overwhelming at first....)
Anyway, the real reason I made an account here was to tell you of the problems I've been having. I'm using Windows 7 Pro x64 by the way.
The Issue of extreme sluggishness is present on my machine too. Just OPENING the program instantly latches on to 25% of my cpu, but whatever it's trying to do makes it seem more like 110% because everything else is practically unresponsive... Everything in XMPlay seems to be fine though...But I would like to listen to music AND work/play
Just closing XMPlay doesn't close completely either! It makes it even slower (the "System" entry in the task manager flies up to 25% as well as xmplay!) and I have to manually end the process every time.
I haven't tried an older build yet, but I will later to see if the problem goes away...
I'll Attach a dxdiag and stuff below if it helps...
