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.

Now I remember why I have to do display="time" for the song timer, as it applies some special formatting to how the digits are rendered, without that, it looks like this (digits are more separated):


When it should look like this (digits are closer together):


I do have a rough idea on how to combat this particular problem, which makes me wonder if I should apply the same "hack" to Winamp Modern... guess this is what I get for making my own song timer implementation ;D

v1.5.1 should now address this issue, please confirm.

That seems to have done it.  The setting on this skin now does not affect the other skins.  So now when I set this one to count down, the others remain unchanged and still count down instead of up.

Hi,

I'm still using v1.4, not sure if I want the new version of the playlist editor window.

Anyway, I also prefer the timer count down mode. In v1.4, the seconds in the timer separate (move right) when counting in the teens. Is this still the case in v1.5.1?

Not sure what you mean exactly, but should still apply.

Just watch the timer (counting up or down) while playing a song. When the seconds being displayed are 10 to 19 they seem to shift 1 space to the right, away from the symbol dividing the minutes and seconds. I could provide an animated screenshot if needed.

After watching more closely, I see that the numbers being used are 5 pixels wide, except for the number "1" (which is only 1 pixel wide). This makes it seem that the number "1" has moved when it really hasn't. The fonts used for numbers in the other skins I use (I don't think bitmaps are used) somehow compensate for this so that the number "1" doesn't appear to move right.

Hmm... a screen recording would be useful, as I don't see anything like this in the skin right now...

Nothing is wrong with the numbers being used, it is just the way I was looking at them. The numbers in the bit-map you use are all 5 dots wide except for the number "1". It uses a single vertical column of dots on the right side. Since the 4 dots to the left (that are used by the other numbers) are not used, it made it appear to me that the number "1" had shifted, when it really hadn't.

I do use another skin that uses bit-map numbers. The number "1" in that skin is shaped so that all 5 dots are used and it doesn't appear to shift in relationship to the other numbers.

I'll install v1.5.1 and see if what I'm badly trying to explain is still present.

P.S.
The shape of the bit-map numbers in v1.5.1 is the same as in v1.4. This still looks a little odd to me, but now I know what I'm seeing and why.

I think I can see what you mean, however...

Winamp 1.00:


Winamp Classic:


Winamp Modern:


This is the number font Winamp 1.00 uses:


And this is the number font Winamp Modern uses:


So... it all checks out.

I agree. I mostly use other modern skins and hadn't noticed this before (especially after scaling the window up). Sorry for the tempest in a tea cup.  ;)
