New side project: Winamp 1.00 as a Modern Skin
« on: March 20, 2022, 09:34:12 PM »

https://github.com/0x5066/winamp1

A new side project that should help me get back into modern skinning, which is to recreate Winamp 1.00's main window almost 1:1 as much as possible.
It's been a bit since I pushed a commit to the Winamp Modern repo (those in the discord know what's up), so this should help me get back into this whole thing again.

I'll happily take feedback on this whole thing, but I probably won't keep this thread updated as much.

Some UI stuff done to have it be more usable, was annoying having to use the keyboard or other windows just to get things done.

And there it is, it's first release!
All it does is display the Main Window in its intended form, everything else isn't done nor do I really have any plans to.

Nice setup!
And just in time to announce v1.3...

This adjusts the spectrum analyzer to appear somewhat louder and closer to Winamp 1.00's "Spectrum Analysis" feature, may still be janky but it's the best I can do. :)

Got the EQ to work just like in the original Winamp, remembering your unmodified state when pressing "Reset".

1.4 has been released that adds the Equalizer I teased in my previous post.

Good job so far. You have left out a way for the skin to display the ', ", &, [, ], and , characters in ATF title strings. I assume this is coming in the next version or two.

Well... it's intentional ;D
This is just to stay true to it's origins as I'm reusing the original bitmap images from Winamp 1.00 where possible (had to edit the numbers and analyzer image but everything else is as original as can be), maybe I'll consider reusing the bitmapped text from later Winamp Classic versions, we'll see.

And that's v1.5 out!

I think this version gets almost all of the major things emulated as best as possible, anything else after this is just going to be fixes and probably some other additions if they're possible to do.

Trying out the version 1.5 of the skin and I noticed the up and down movement buttons don't align with the arrows on them.  Perhaps you already know.  If not, does this on my system anyway. 


Thought you'd like to know.  Or not.. :)
Oh, another thing I noticed.. the song time on the main window doesn't seem to read what's already been set as far as counting up or counting down.  I always have it set to count down and other skins pick it up.   When I toggle it to count down on this one, it starts to count up on the other skins. 

Thanks for all you work on this.

Oops, entirely misread the first issue, yeah I know of them being misplaced, that's due to me re-using the Winamp3 styled things for everything, and the pre-made buttons have their text not properly aligned, which causes some weird stuff like with the arrow buttons.
I could make my own button implementation, but that'd be too much for something so simple (as I do intend on keeping the skin size small)

I'm already aware of the playlist item moving issue as it only ever seems to do the currently playing title (there also doesn't seem an API that moves the selected items, only the currently playing one), as for the other issue, I'd need a screen recording to fully know what's going on as I don't really understand what's up.

I made a video describing the main window song timer not matching other skins.  In Bento it's counting the time left in the song and in this one it's counting the time elapsed in the song.  If I toggle it to count down, then it counts up in other skins.

Fascinating, I'll see if I can somehow work around this issue.
