Hello, I have a really nit-picky request for a secret setting.
As of 3.6, the "rating" stars became much larger than the * asterisks used before.
In the default XMPlay skin, when using the mini-panel on the right and having ratings showing, the giant stars take up a decent chunk of the limited room, reducing the amount of space left for titles. Could it be secret setting to re-enable the small stars?

That change was one of 2 that discouraged me from upgrading from 3.5.1.1, and I now see that Volstep can now be set back to 5 by .ini.

Bonus: a 3 way option in the ini: either all rating stars are small, all are large, or the mini panel is small and the playlist is large.

Thanks much! XMPlay is such an awesome player, in part due to the fact that the users have a voice and improvements are implemented, and quickly.

P.S. I would totally give $ if there were a paypal donate button.

That is a skin issue, not a core application issue.

Zarggg: Perhaps. But it is the default included skin. While hardly a "make or break" issue, it would still be nice to have the option somewhere.

Also, new issue, the "NoFlashPause" ini setting no longer works. In the current stuff build, NoFlashPause seems to be turned on in the program regardless of the ini setting; setting to 0 does not re-enable flash pause. Again, a rather small issue, but I did like flash pause.

I just checked NoFlashPause, and it still works. Note that it only controls the flashing of the play/pause-button, the time field won't blink anymore.

Thanks for looking Dotpitch.

Ohhh. I was thinking it controlled the time field blink, thats what I was talking about previously, sorry for the confusion.

... is the time field blink no longer an option anywhere?

PlayDelay - Delay (in seconds) until start of play to enable sorting, set to 0 to disable  (default: PlayDelay=1)
RandomList - Pre-shuffle multiple file drops for WinXP and above

I forgot to mention that the "RandomList" option was removed when the "PlayDelay" option was extended to begin playback with a random track (when random playback is enabled). That option was for added people that wanted playback to begin with a random track when adding a bunch of new tracks, so it became redundant.

This is not quite correct. It should be something along these lines:
Amount (in seconds) of a ShoutCast stream that is kept im memory for being written to disk. This way, audio that has been sent before "Write to Disk" has been enabled can be written to disk as well.

Yep, the "NetBufferOld" option sets an amount of old (already decoded/played) data to keep buffered from Shoutcast streams, in addition to the normal buffering (as set in the Miscellaneous options page). When file writing is activated, the contents of both buffers will be written to the file.

Ah, guilty of trying to over-simplify the "short" description.  Does this do the trick?

NetBufferOld - [3.6.0.74 and later] Amount (in seconds) to buffer output of a ShoutCast stream (in addition to the incoming stream buffer set in Miscellaneous options.)

These Secret INI settings should be in XMPlay.ini that comes with the program (but they can be commented out). Would save some time for new users to have to find the settings on the internet and add them manually.

You'd still have to look up the exact meaning of each setting. Or would you know what "NetBufferOld =5" means in the INI without looking it up here?
