Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #15538 (May 27th 2023) (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.

Skins / Re: Quinto v3.7 now compatible with WACUP :)

I dropped PeterK a note and he said it is not possible for him to have the Quinto Black CT installer clean up the studio.xnf file. He also explained that using new names for stuff would not prevent old entries from causing errors in new versions, without a complete rewrite of the skin.

In my case, I've gotten pretty good at replacing entries for my other skins, but there is always the chance of errors that cause me to skip new Quinto versions unless really interesting features are added. After-all, from the ui control side of things, WACUP provides alternate ways to control everything that Quinto provides controls for.

PeterK will soon be releasing v3.8 that will have compelling new features, imo.

I doubt he would & it's likely too much hassle to try to do it especially from an installer or without a custom tool to do it. At least the installer doesn't seem like it's doing it (not tried so might be wrong on that assumption).

I still don't get why it's a requirement since if it's due to config changes within the quinto skin then just using different names for the config attributes would suffice without the brute force option that messes up all other skins which I suspect is more down to not being bothered about anyone not using the quinto skin (not that it's great for anyone who might've been using prior quinto skin installs either).

I use the mute button from time to time for various reasons and would miss it if it wasn't there. I activate it in the gen_win7shell plug-in to use with the skins I use that don't have one.

Maybe they still need it to keep playing even if not needing the audio to be heard if taking a call, etc due to the visualisation aspect still running.

Honestly there's so many things within a lot of the skins & also the plug-ins that don't make sense for most people to have exist but as I've found over too many years that sometimes it's just how people are wired that makes a certain different way of doing things make more sense to them vs doing it via another action (e.g. click a mute button in the modern skins that implement it vs click & drag the volume slider or fast scroll the mouse wheel if applicable).

Whether it's useful to have it around is debatable & isn't something I've ever really thought about as the skins that do implement it don't seem to make it be massively in the way of doing other things.

While it might make sense to mute the sound while watching a subtitled movie, I don't see the point of having a mute button in a music player. If I'm interrupted while listening to music, I just pause the playback.

I know that Winamp/WACUP can play videos and I occasionally watch some music clips with it but I never use it for movies.

Is it just me who never uses the mute button in Winamp/WACUP?

Yes, it still does.

I like Quinto Black, but this is a major stumbling point. PeterK needs to have the installer remove all Quinto related stuff from studio.xnf instead of requiring a new studio.xnf for each version upgrade.

Does it still have the requirement to wipe the studio.xnf file at the cost of losing customisations for all other modern skins ?

The previous version of Quinto was broken through and through in WACUP unless you kept a copy of its scripts folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp\Skins\Quinto Black CT v3.6. You no longer need to do so.

Quinto Black CT v3.7.exe, Quinto's installer still will not install the skin into WACUP's skins directory. You still need a file with the name winamp.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Winamp to make the installer believe you have Winamp on your machine. (The file does not really need to be a real exe file, a plain text file with an exe extension will do as well.)

Once Quinto is installed into Winamp's skins directory, you can move Quinto's folder into WACUP. And that's it.

Get Quinto Black CT v3.7 here.

Version 3.6 of Quinto hard-coded Quinto's path in its makis but now it uses @SKINPATH@ instead.

Is that an intentional naming of the albums by different artists or just a means of trying to help identify badly tagged metadata ?

There isn't a way to change the behaviour with the preview build nor the current beta build but it's something I could add (just would prefer to know the intent of the need to do things case sensitively before I look to make the changes).
