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.

Waveform Seeker exists as it should


And the option to use the integrated Waveform Seeker is also here as well
Maker of Plugins, I suppose.

I could fix the problem!

Because it's a potable install I have to "Allow WACUP to use the OS registry as required" (in Preferences|Advanced|Portabe Mode).

That doesn't make sense as there's nothing that should be needing to touch the OS registry when it comes to a skin specific option. As trying with the option enabled & disabled, toggling the skin provided option has the window going from being integrated to external & back again with it following the expected state. Only thing I can otherwise think of is that there's a conflict from another plug-in present but that should still exist irrespective of that option being set *confused*

OK. I couldn't reproduce the "use OS registry" method.  :-\

So, I made a backup of my WACUP_portable folder. Then I deleted it and reinstalled latest WACUP as portable (full install). But again, no "Integrated Waveform Seeker (IWS)" option!  :o
Then I copied bit by bit from the backup to the new install.
That way I found out what was the problem:
There has to be a file
WACUP_portable\Settings\WACUP_Tools\koopa.ini

It doesn't matter what's in the file - even a 0 byte file does it.
If that file is missing (or renamed) then there is no IWS. If I recreate a file with that path and name, the IWS reappears.
100% reproducible on my system.

Ah, I see what's going on. I'll need to edit the patching that's done on the skin version checks to avoid that (really can't remember why that file got picked with this skin for "winamp" vs wacup version detection).

I could provide a patch for BBM with the version check I do for DeClassified (as seen here), only with Victhor's OK

It's not just BBM that has this issue & there's old versions of the skins that I know are being used which are still affected. So even with a better implementation for the skin, I've still got to make changes on the core side to deal with this.

Really I need to find a way to provide a proper skin script call to use to check than all of these file existence checks as they don't work 100% but that still involves the skins being updated & means the old ways need to be dealt with.

There's now a generic patch in place for the next beta build to deal with the file existence checks that'll do what's needed irrespective of the file existing or not.

Or maybe I'd not seen the question & as modifying the skin is something anyone can technically do unless what you've still to ask is a gen_ff / core implementation aspect & then who knows what can or cannot be done, rather than asking if it's ok to ask, just ask for it.
