Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19516 (June 27th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19516 (June 27th 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.

Winamp skinning resources
« on: April 07, 2018, 10:34:53 PM »
I know Winamp skinning is a dying/dead art but from time to time there are people asking questions about how to skin. Hopefully the files and links I'm putting on this thread can help.

This is my personal collection of stuff, references and resources I use when skinning. The order may be a bit random or scattered, sorry, I don't have the time to put it all into a step by step guide, so use with.. patience XD. Also, if you have a useful link I'm missing, don't hesitate to add it on this thread too.

Great Links Victhor!  Thank you for sharing all of your information.
Is there a way to download or backup all of these pages before they "disappear forever"?

Good question.. If the entire Winamp.com was backed up back in 2013 I'm sure there are several methods but I don't know of a proper way to do it.. Mr. Google probably has the answer XD.

Oops! Completely missed that! I'll fix it in a (long) moment. Thanks for pointing it out.

It was wise of you to archive all this because forums.winamp.com is down.

Either they don't want to keep running it & cba to just acknowledge it or it's a side-effect of the sale of targetspot/shoutcast at the end of 2022 & they don't know how to split things cleanly or something went wrong at OVH (again) & it's hosed the database & they won't admit it or it's avoid any backlash about the "new winamp" that they're trying to push (the online thing) or <insert_other_option>.

I'm more surprised it was kept going for how long it was post-sale as they wanted to kill it early on plus they're only really interested about "the future" rather than what's come before to get them whatever remains of the integrity of the brand & all of the user content, etc that that place held which has likely been lost if it's not restored (as the 2013 internet archive scape was massively incomplete). Either way it's down to the "llama group" to sort it out or at least just acknowledge they don't want to deal with it than keeping some people hanging on to the hope it'll be restored.
