Ah that is fantastic! Thanks so much for looking into this. I'll keep my eyes peeled here for future builds.

BIG UP!

I've just had a look & I could have done with a bright screen warning when first enabling that mode but I was then able to replicate the issue.

Digging into it, the magic window that's meant to be created by the OS in response to something I have to send to the main desktop window wasn't creating it & so it set the menu item to be disabled. I've since found some different message parameters that seem to work with both normal & high contrast modes so I'll need to do a bit more testing but I think that'll do it & will be included in a future build.

Hi Dro! Thanks for the quick reply, I really appreciate the work you've done on this project, WACUP is awesome!

So it's just the high contrast theme in Windows 10 that is built-in (which you can turn on and off with SHIFT+ALT+prntscrn - save your theme first though as this can mess up your wallpaper on multiple displays), when I switch it off high contrast and go back to Aero theme the desktop mode re-enables again, then when high contrast is turned back on desktop mode goes back to 'unavailable.'

As I've tried to explain, it isn't a supported mode from my side so it not working properly or it doing weird things is to be expected. This is the 'fun' that comes from a public preview release (which in hindsight I should just have called it a beta & the betas be called alpha builds).

I've also re-read things & I got the order of things the wrong way around but it doesn't make much of a difference as either way using the command-line aspects with WACUP is not supported & won't be fully implemented until I'm no longer having to use bits of Winamp for WACUP to run.

Bur what i not understand is why it open winamp in foreground and not start playing it the first time...

Bur second time just reload and start play it in the background, it's a totally different behavior and i don't see that as logical at all...

No one has pointed me to a simple nicely licensed implementation that could be used to even attempt to implement this request (I'm not going to hack up VLC source code, etc especially as I think it's then at odds on code licensing). So until there's some nice way to do it from a traditional DESKTOP program it's not going to happen & I doubt Google have done anything to help either as it's all about Chrome/mobile when I last looked.

People do crappy things for numerous reasons even if it's at odds with valid reasons for limiting access but it's all about FOMO or just being a c**t.

I'm somewhat confused how such a theme would even be getting involved with how WACUP's build of Milkdrop works vs desktop mode unless the theme (is it the built-in OS one or something 3rd party?) is somehow messing up things in a manner I've not yet experienced from testing.

The WACUP build of WACUP checks for a specific window existing & if that's not found then it'll disable the desktop mode (is the only thing I do check) which is why I'm curious about what you're using to get the high contrast theme.

Preview Build Discussion / Re: Wacup, Visualizations, on Windows 11

From a quick read of things, it honestly sounds like it's a plug-in specific issue vs Win11 rather than something that I can really affect under WACUP.

What specific version of the plug-in are you trying to use as there's a number of versions out in the world that I'd need to know that before trying to look into what you're mentioned though I'll note it's a lower priority for now as I've still not gotten around to even attempting to setup a Win11 test VM.
