Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #14278/14282 (January 23rd/24th 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.

I'm not sure what is meant with "a copy of the settings in options in the winamp/wacup menu" and "The browser might have something, as it appears there already"...

The main context menu (right-click on any window's title bar) lists things that can be selected which affect how the app works. When you point to "Options" in that list, you get another sub-menu listing more things. Pointing to the "Browser" item in that sub-menu lets you list another sub-menu of items related to the browser.

Winamp/WACUP is full of context menus. You can right-click anywhere on anything and you often get a menu of choices related to what you right-checked on. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your point of view. I like having more than 1 path to get things done. However, it does take a while to learn where all the context menus are and what they do.

My configuration of WACUP beta version 1.8.18.14278 crashes as soon as I try to use Refugee-Declassified v1.30. I get a message telling me the x86 version (#14278) is not current and offering to update to the x64 version (#14282) of WACUP. That version is too incomplete for my needs.

Refugee-Declassified v1.30 worked fine with the previous WACUP x86 beta version configured the same way the current version is.

Latest seems to have problems with the more demanding modern skins. Classic Modern had crashing issues too, from what I heard on the Discord server.

I'd just use either classic skins or a less 'demanding' modern skin like Bento until the next build is released.

Wow, thanx for the quick reply. Who's Classic Modern and which version? The one I use doesn't cause a crash, but the window locations are not saved between sessions.

All the other modern skins I use don't have these issues. I'll wait to see what happens with the next beta release before reporting this to dro.

Build #14282 is an x86 only update & not an x64 build (which is still only at #14278). Build #14282 specifically fixes the modern skin related loading issues that #14278 had. If it's trying to install the x64 build then I'd need more details as I don't see that happening from the versioning details that the build is provided to download & it prompting to update to a newer build after a crash is intended to avoid me seeing a load of crashes from a build that's already been fixed.

I swear the one installed by default in Wacup was having issues, atleast it was for DrO. 🤔

That mightve been a while ago though, i dont pay attention to how long its been on things tbh.

Edit: oh I think it was only 14278 that had that issue. 14282 had fixed that.

Refugee AmpDeck v5.0

It's been a while since I've updated the Classic Skin variants of Refugee, and while I was updating it for parity with Refugee DeClassified, I found a way I could combine both Winamp and WACUP variants into one. :D

What I did was, if I wanted WACUP specific elements, I'd have them in .png format while the rest of the skin would be in .bmp for Winamp compatibility.



Oh and the Linux variants got updates aswell. :)
You can find them all right here in this new DL link

I downloaded Refugee AmpDeck v5.0.wsz. It only has .bmp graphic files and the double size option is not replaced with a mute option. So which skin should I download to use with WACUP that has the updates to match the latest Refugee-Declassified modern skin.

I can only do so much with Classic skins, as such there is no mute button, and it's all in .bmp format (except for the Wacup specific graphics used for the Main Window) for Winamp compatibility.

If you want the mute button and other features of the DeClassified port, you'll have to use Refugee-DeClassified instead, there's just no way I can include the mute button and speakers (atleast, not without writing my own vis plugin, and that sounds like a bit too much work for me rn) in a classic skin.

You can still find Refugee-DeClassified on my github here  :)

Ok, I understand. I was expecting too much when you stated you were updating the classic versions for parity with Refugee DeClassified. I'm content to wait for dro to resolve why the modern version is crashing WACUP build #14278.

EDIT:
I guess due to cross posting, I just noticed that x86 build #14282 was released to fix the modern skin crashing issue. I'll install it now and report back on if it fixes things.

It's alright, I probably should've said something like visual parity instead of just parity so there wasn't any confusion.  :P

Hi Samey and dro,

Sorry for my disconnect on the current state of things. I can verify that WACUP v1.8.18. 14282 does fix the issues with modern skins (in the previous x86 build).

I misread this statement; "Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #14278/14282 (January 23rd/24th 2023) (x86 & x64 changelogs)", at the top of the forum. I was thinking that build #14278 was for x86 and build #14282 was for x64.

Refugee-DeClassified v1.30 is again working correctly on WACUP. Refugee AmpDeck v5.0 is also working correctly on Winamp.
