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.

Defix - Yukon
« on: January 29, 2024, 11:10:17 AM »
Hi all. New skin. Yukon.
I wanted to create a modern skin that would look organically in the Windows 11 interface and at the same time support 4K resolution to help Winamp live a little longer.

This is still a beta version 0.80
_________________
Relatively finished:
- Player window.
(Although we need to add the possibility of classic sliders for volume and seek, for those who don’t like knob. We also need to add more display screen options.)

- Coverflow.
___________________
What else remains to be done:
"Mini-component" That's what I call those places where Coverflow and Big Clock are located.

- Playback tab in which there will be:
seek slider, track or playlist repeat switching, menu, classic volume slider, AB repeat block. There may also be a timer, shutdown.

- File info tab with detailed information about the track, similar to the one in the Big Bento Modern skin.

- Add a version of waveform seeker and Big Clock to Wacup.

- Compact mode.

- maximize.maki, pledit.maki and other component management scripts need to be replaced with one large script. Everything must work quickly and smoothly so that variability in the position of components can be created.

- Windowshade mod
_______________
Optimization:
Since scaling a skin is a very resource-intensive process, optimization plays a very important role. Since there will be many elements that will not be displayed until they are active, they must be stopped, for example texts that show the time or other random data.
You can create a setting that limits the number of illuminated buttons, for example up to 5 illuminated buttons at a time.

Rebuild SUICORE.maki, for example, now Big Bento cannot switch visualization windows on the fly; in order to change a window, you usually need to start the visualizations again after the change. There are quite a lot of such moments.

In general, there is a lot to do!)

But one way or another, if you use it or just test it, then I would like to know with what scaling and what resolution, whether everything works correctly and stably, perhaps you will have ideas and wishes.

And one more request. Since my English is not that good, I need help naming terms and texts. If you think that some description or text is incorrect or not logical, or there is a better version, then please let me know.
This will help a lot in the future. I think that if there are a lot of negative reviews about performance, then most likely I will make a small version that will run natively on FullHD.

Now about the sad stuff. I don’t yet know when I will be able to continue actively developing the skin, I had several free weeks which, unfortunately, was not enough for me to finish the skin, during which time I only came to understand what the skin should be.
And serious changes are planned in my life, perhaps not for the better. Therefore, if everything goes really badly, I will post all the sources and developments that I created, and perhaps someone using them will continue to create this skin.

Completed Volume (I took the idea from one of the Ariszlo skins) and Coverflow scripts.

Since I took the Big Bento skin as a basis, I don’t see any point in posting the rest of the skippts, they either haven’t changed yet or require improvement.

...

I would like to test it, but I don't see a way to download it.

Hi Denis,

I really like what you have so far. The color theme is easy on my old eyes.

I pray your life changes do not turn out as bad as you fear and you get the chance to finish this skin.

I don't have a 4K monitor yet (still using 1920 x 1080), so I down-scaled it to 50%. So far, it is performing as well as the other modern skins I'm using. I'll provide some specifics after I play with it for awhile.

@dro
Thank you for pointing out the download link. Don't understand how I missed it, when it was right in front of me.

I also don’t have a 4K monitor yet, but if I get one, I’ll already have a skin for it) Moreover, the scaling works better than expected, I recently launched a skin for 1366x768 with a scaling of 40%, it works quite stable.

Version 0.83
Main changes:
I optimized all active objects, and now the performance of the skin allows you to place a block with mini components back under the playlist, the problem with the lower right corner is still relevant.

Coverflow:
-now the album art of the albums that are present in the coverflow and reproduced in the timelist disappear first, moving to the center.
- added the ability to change animation speed from 0.3 to 0.6
-some bugs fixed. Perhaps added new ones.

Hi Denis,

I hope you're doing well. I'm enjoying using your Defix - Yukon skin. I prefer it over the Bento skins provided with the WACUP installer.

Ariszlo (a skin developer who frequents this forum) has developed maki scripts that provide a 'fix' for the rounding error with the Winamp/WACUP timing calculations code that causes the sum of the displayed remaining + elapsed playback time to be 1 second less than the playlist item's total playback time. These scripts can be used as work-arounds until such time when dro is able to introduce a proper fix to WACUP. I think I can use the 'fix' for Defix - Yukon's Big Clock mini component, but I need the source files for your related scripts.

Thank you, if you can provide them. PM them to me if you want, no worries if you prefer to keep them private.
