I was just reading some veeery old threads, and noticed this thread by KelticDanor. The first post goes like this:
All I can say is this is the best and smallest, fastest player I have ever seen. I can see nothing wrong, anything more could only be a bonus.
And unlike some, I think the interface (Or GUI if you like) is pretty much perfect. I despise skins for the waste of space and useless glossy hogs that they are. Please, whatever you do, don't use skins. Or at the very least keep a default built in skin, so it can still be one small file.
Basically there three things in a player I can't stand.
- Huge program size
- Visualizations (Your spectrum analyser kicks butt though)
p.s. How did you keep it so small (127Kb).
Long live XMplay
Now that you think about it, XMPlay has just about everything he can't stand: it has both
visualizations. It is almost double the size of the one back in those days, so Keltic just has to
consider it huge
. And that's not all - before I found XMPlay, I was a Winamp user and I didn't think (and I actually don't even now, except Winamp3 of course) it much sucked. So I took many of my ideas on how to improve XMPlay straight from there, and many got implemented too.
Now, what can you conclude? Perhaps here's the reason why Keltic hasn't posted much lately :idea:.
