LCD STUDIO PLUGIN for HTPC LCD
« on: July 30, 2020, 01:07:26 PM »
Hello, i have a matrix orbital   LCD screen for my HTPC  that shows song info and  spectrum analyser which runs on LCD studio with a plugin for winamp that works perfectly with song info and spectrum analyser.
On this version however, the spectrum analyser does not work.
I do have the dll file which  i have noticed that it shows up in original winamp visualisation plugin section but not this version.

What's the name of the dll file? As only vis_*.dll will be loaded as a vis plug-in.

I know older Winamp versions would generically look at any dll in the plug-ins folder to try to find vis plug-ins but Winamp iirc changed that in the 5.6x era (can't remember the specific version where I'd made that change) & WACUP will also only look for vis_*.dll files to list/use as a valid vis plug-in.

Winamp changed that behaviour as it was causing crashes from some plug-ins / dlls not liking being dynamically loaded & unloaded as the vis checking would do & I think WACUP doing also that is the approach.

[edit]
I'd missed https://getwacup.com/community/index.php/topic,858.msg5294.html#msg5294 & from a look at the WinampNative.dll it should work if you rename it to vis_WinampNative.dll
