Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #13286 (October 21st 2022) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #7236 (March 11th 2021) (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.

Use this new BentoX WinAmp/WACUP skin to give your WinAmp/WACUP a modern make-over.
The old Bento skin was developed by Martin Pöhlmann, Ben Allison and Taber Buhl.
The new BentoX skin has these modifications:
  • Flat title bar
  • Flat grey window minimize, maximize and close buttons
  • Dark player buttons
  • Flat dark scroll bars and handles
  • Flat rectangular notification window
  • Darker text fonts

The BentoX skin is freeware and can be downloaded at https://vanbarel.eu.org/tools/bentox/index.html.

Open WinAmp/WACUP and select BentoX skin from Menu/Skins

Feedback welcome!

Version 1.2.3 released.

What's new:
  • Set fonts in player and info display slightly bold and anti-aliased
  • Added instructions in readme file to set "Tahoma" font consistently through interface (could not change it via .xml only)

Instructions to set "Tahoma" font:
  • Preferences/Skins/Modern Skins/Font Rendering/: check "Use Skin Font Mapper" and "Configure ...": Map Font "Arial" into "Tahoma" (New+Close)
  • Preferences/Playlist/: Uncheck "Use skin or language pack font" and Use font: "Tahoma"

Hi,

The second preference option in reply #3 above is for Winamp. In WACUP, this option is in Preferences/General/Appearance.
