Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #19100 (May 10th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #19100 (May 10th 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 Modern Updated for WACUP
« on: May 05, 2021, 08:25:31 AM »
Inspired in part by Ariszló's thread of old skins updated for WACUP, I wanted to show off a work in progress of updating Winamp Modern:


This is the latest I've done, fixing the bitrate display to not decrease the width of it's surrounding box when it happens to be below 100kbps.

There are also a slew of other things, namely the newer and improved timer which now flashes the timer instead of displaying dashes, there's also the realignment of UI elements which looked too off when taking a deeper look at the main window and other tiny stuff that no one else would really see... well, except for me.

The git repository can be found here: https://github.com/0x5066/WinampModernForked

Maybe this'll find itself in a new WACUP build, but I can't say for certain. :)

Well, I have never noticed before that the width of the bitrate box decreases below 100 kbps. So I reduced the bitrate of one my mp3 files to 64 kbps just to see it. You really see things that no one else does.

If you do a 1:1 comparison of just the Main Window between this and 5.666's Winamp Modern, you'll begin to dislike how some of the UI parts were slapped on, and how left aligned the title bar text is.



If you can see what's wrong here and check it out yourself, you'll never unsee it.
But luckily for all of us, I fixed this too, something they could've done over the years...

Do you really mean the title bar? Not the PE_Info box?

The PE_Info box is what got screwed up once the window itself becomes wider, it shifts a few pixels to the right instead of staying to the left, like the thinner/smaller state
