Use the Launch Winamp after installer closes, click through the registration and then try and drag and drop an .mp3 onto the window. You won't be able to! Seems they've got the same problem. (NOTE: This is Vista/Windows7 issue)

I'll keep chipping away and see what else I can do.


About 8 hours of coding and research later, I've finally cracked it! :)

I now execute Xion at the end of the install as a standard user instead of an administrator!

Your dedication is awesome!

Are you tweaking the VU meters too, Cliff? I know I'm nuts but they seem a little more responsive in 113...

Ok for build 114 I've tweaked the algorithm so that it uses logarithmic, accumulate and average bins instead of just FFT peaks.

I tested it out on a Bass/Mid/Treble test song and its now responding much better. I then tried out some normal songs and all over there is a much better response.

So be sure to check out build 114 as the Bass/Mid/Treble objects should now be much more lively, including the treble ranges.

Yeah, along with the 50+ other requests :P

Now that the Skinnable playlist is practically done, I can concentrate on improving the other things.

Btw your "The VU Tester.xsf" skin now works as you'd originally intended, with full range on the bars ;)

I did notice that if you resize the playlist small, there are artifacts that stay on the screen still. I don't really bother pulling the playlist around the screen resizing, either.

They are always generated bottom right of playlist, they are always 6 or 8 white dots, they seem to be text. :) xonenine.
