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'll keep it on a to-do list for Refugee. Thinking of replacing it with Winamp3's scaling menu button in some form.
Though I am aware that menu is prone to crashes, unfortunately.

Please don't add anything that is known to lead to crashes. It's a minor thing to change the main player window scale from 100% or 200% after the skin loads.

Alright, I won't add the Winamp3 scale menu inplace of the double size button.

I'll still look into making it a bit better though.

🤔 Maybe a custom right-click menu for it to change the size between 100% and 200% instead..

Isn't that the point of the window settings -> scaling menu so the skin doesn't really have to contend with any of this? Sure I get it's trying to do the classic thing but iirc modern skins normally just left it to the user selection so it's then kept consistent for what it actually is (really it should be feasible for it to all just work the same but that's not simple to do for now vs the core & gen_ff).

Yeah idrk to be honest. I want to keep the double-size mode button, but I also want to give people the option of the other scaling sizes too.

And also if I remove the double-size mode in the skin, idrk what I'd put in place of it atm.

How about a mute volume feature (which I've seen in other skins)?

I could add that as an R-click option on the volume slider, itd be strange to have it as part of the clutterbar imo

Edit: Actually on second thought, it wouldnt be that strange.

I'll look into it. :)

it would be a rather interesting replacement for the D button as it seems to only cause problems here (not that i am going to remove it from the base any time soon)

It's been a while since I've updated this. Been busy with loads of other projects and just haven't been able to work on this.

Finally got around to it though and it's finally up to date with the DeClassified base skin once more.
I've also added the original Fusion AmpDeck speakers (with some modifications visually) as a maki script! :D


Here's the release on Github. :)

Thank you for the new version. I especially like the animated speakers and their separate woofer, midrange, and tweeter responses.

Finally finished up that Mute button replacement and also made the Winamp3 info optional. It defaults to the Classic Winamp2 info.
Also fixed a number of bugs related to the Speakers' mini-mode.  ;D

Thank you for the mute button replacement of the double size button. I hadn't tried the speakers mini-mode yet, so also thank you for fixing the bugs before I found them. :)

I did try up-scaling the speakers (by editing their configuration info in the studio.xnf file), but they look best at their default size.

I upscale the main player window to 125%. With all the previous versions, I had to redo the up-scaling between sessions. This version maintains the scaling between sessions. That is also a welcome change.

Somewhere along the way I missed the explanation of the differences between Winamp3 info and Winamp2 info. How do I switch between them?

Happy New Year!

oh to switch between the mix/bitrate stuffs, you right click the vis and select the Winamp3 mode.
DeClassified likes to keep all the modes there (like the title-bar font change option) so I wanted to keep it that way with Refugee.

I do think we should have a copy of the settings in options in the winamp/wacup menu though.

I'll look into adding that as part of the DeClassified base sometime in the future. Gotta figure out how that's done though. The browser might have something, as it appears there already.

Happy New Years to you tooo!!

Here's a visual to show the differences:

For all windows to follow the scaling, you can tick this box in the Modern Skins settings:

Never ever edit the studio.xnf to do it manually, even if you know what you're doing, you may still break it.

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"...
