Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19320 (June 5th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19320 (June 5th 2024) (x86 only)

NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Thanks for fixing this (as of 
Personally speaking, I like this better than how it is done in mp3tag/5.666, showing the custom genre in the list.

I think that was the last thing that prevented me to move primarily to wacup, so glad to finally make the switch.

Thanks dro for looking into this. 

Yes, the behavior of mp3tag and winamp 5.666 is normally what I would expect, where the genre text is unaltered and is unselected until the dropdown box is selected.

Check the preferences - advanced - options page 2 tab. If the "Only show genres from the genres.txt ..." option is enabled, try disabling it.

checked and it is disabled

It's most likely down to how the find in the dropdown is done which can be either be an exact match or a first part that matches approach (this being what I assume is happening until I check things out).


Let me know if it is indeed a bug or an issue on my end.  Like I mentioned, it seems the genre is automatically selected and changed just by opening the file info which is a concerning issue for me as I sometimes do edit info that way.

I tried opening other genre songs and it seems that if it is an original unmatching genre (i.e. the genre lists 'chillout' but I labeled the genre as 'Chill Out') then the file info opens normally with no change in genre nor is the genre highlighted.
If I tried opening the file info on a song that has a genre that is in the genre list (i.e. Trance), then the genre field is highlighted right when opening.

My guess is it seems that the drop down matches the genre (or attempts to match) right when opening the file info which is causing the issue.  I would think it shouldn't be doing that until the dropdown is actually selected, but you would know best dro.

Thanks Mark for checking.

No, right when I go into the the view file info it changes instantly without even clicking into it.  Even tried in safe mode and still the same issue.

see the attached gif

When opening the file info on a song, the genre tag will automatically select a nearest genre if the current saved tag is not in the default genre list.

For example, I nave a number of tracks that I have labeled genre "Symphonic".  If I open the file info on one of them, the genre changes to "Symphonic Rock".  This would mess up tags if, for example, someone was to open the file info to view or make other edits and clicked OK without noticing the genre.

This is on the latest preview ( and was present in the prior preview.  This is also with the ID3v1 disabled (mp3 file).

Non-issue in winamp 5.666

Thanks DrO.

I don't think it's really needed.  It's used for a Logitech G15 keyboard's LCD, a keyboard that is 14 years old, and used for a nice spectrum analyzer, but even then half the time it doesn't load right.

Yep, disabled it and looks like the crash is gone.  Thanks.

I have a feeling it is related to the twitter hack, as there might have been a link to the beta in the DMs, if not then that's some interesting timing haha
