Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #14638 (February 23rd 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.

Ouch, I guess it was for a reason (instability?).
Sadly, although having much confidence using a good amount of pieces of software and the Windows environment, I have no programming skills by my side, which makes me rather hesitant at the idea of diving into skin modification (although I guess it might be not as hard as feared). At the time I'll keep going with the current (and definitely bearable) limitations mentioned above, but I don't exclude trying some braver deed in the coming future!
In the meantime, thanks for updating me.

Afaict everything that was done for that mod & related aspects to it has been removed. Maybe there's a copy of things floating around &/or someone else might be up for modifying the file info script for the skin. Alternatively the Winamp Skin Developer Pack (WaSDP) from 5.666 is what you'd need to get & use to try to modify the skin.

Hi everyone (my debut post in the forum),
I was wondering whether this modification has been withdrawn, not being accessible anymore.
I'm a fond user of the (Big) Bento interface, due to some fifteen years spent in "her" company with great fulfillment of my functional (and aesthetical) needs, and I sill prefer her over Modern alternatives, especially due to the different working of the Switch to Shade on Titlebar Doubleclick option in the latter (something I constantly use to toggle between the Shade and Main mode just "throwing" the mouse cursor upwards and clicking, without having to aim where to exactly click).
The only thing I really miss in the Bento skin (as well as in others) is the chance of displaying the filename and file path among the File Info Components (something I found only in the ClassicPro skin, which however suffers from the same limitations of the Bento Modern skins around the Switch to Shade on Titlebar Doubleclick function), so I thought this Big Bento U+ -might- come in handy at the purpose...

I want to use the 2nd instance for some very lengthy media (a/v lectures, tutorials, seminars, etc.) that need to be paused at end-of-day pc power off and have the paused locations restored at the next pc power-up.

What are you doing to try to spawn a new instance? As Ctrl+Alt+N is the only keyboard action to do it unless you're using a skin / plug-in(s) that are some how messing with the shortcut handling.

The action should work irrespective of that prefs option which ideally should be left unchecked as you'll have a bunch of other issues if you do check it.

When you do a Ctrl+Alt+N it's meant to have prompted if you wanted to have it duplicate the settings which is a middle ground between making another install or keeping the same install but its using it's own settings folder to avoid the data corruption issue that multiple instances running can otherwise cause.

Now knowing what your config paths are, the simplest option would be to see if there's a %appdata%\wacup_m folder (am assuming the default paths) & if there is, once all wacup instances have been stopped, removed it & then in a newly started instance do the Ctrl+Alt+N & that should then give you a prompt on what to do about the settings. One thing with doing that is it can take a while for the copy to complete.

Otherwise make a portable install using the installer & that'll give you the equivalent & you can run as many portable installs as you want to.

You can run multiple beta instances like you can do with the preview build (would be a bit silly to restrict that in betas but not preview builds ;) ).
OK - well, when I tried to invoke a new instance nothing happened. I then reasoned that perhaps there is a box or something in the options dialogue that needs to be checked. In Main Menu > Options > Preferences > General > I saw a unchecked box labeled "Allow multiple instances (this can cause data corruption)", checked it and closed the dialogue. The attached image of a popup appeared. I was in no mood for taking this 'leap' and cliked "No".

If there is another way, I am all ears. Maybe doing a separate beta install in another directory (is this what the popup suggestion refers to and is it safe?)? I will defer to your advice.

re: that spammy looking message prompt (they have the means to do the nicer way of reporting updates to users but seems they cba to do it right), preferences -> general preferences page -> uncheck "Check for new versions of Winamp at startup" to avoid it reappearing if they do other 5.9.x releases.

It has been awhile but when I need 2 media players to run at once, in addition to WACUP, I will fire up my original Winamp5.666 install. I have stopped using WACUP's preview build because there are too many fixes to it in the beta version and I exclusively use the beta. I know not if it can run more than one beta instance. Anyways, as I said, I fired up the 5.666 and the attached image popped up.

Just curious and I did dismiss it.
