Seems like, when Shpeck is embedded in UI and has focus, it interferes "mouse wheel: scroll object below pointer" option
Is this known?
Can be resolved?

I was thinking also, is windowed mode preferred over UI embedding? Because when foobar is minimized and then restored Shpeck element reinitializes, loosing info displays and chosen preset for example

Foobar 1.1 beta breaks Shpeck.

It seems that using a relative path (.) to the plugins directory
no longer works on foobar 1.1

In my case, the Winamp plugins like AVS and Milkdrop 2 gets detected,
but when I open a Shpeck window or 'configure' the plugins, it says that
it could not load the DLL.

- Using an absolute path to the directory fixes it.
- I have tested it on a fresh install of foobar w/ only shpeck installed
as a 3rd party component.
- And yes, the latest version of Milkdrop 2 that comes w/ Winamp 5.58
does not work. Older Milkdrop 2 versions work fine.
- Some AVS presets namely the ones made by 'NemoOrange' crashes
Shpeck/AVS/foobar when 'Pixel Doubling' is enabled on the AVS preferences.

I'm currently using the modified Milkdrop 2 package that was uploaded here, with foobar2000 1.1 beta 2.  No problems.

I'm using a portable foobar install, with a fake winamp.exe in the main directory, and a plugins subdirectory containing Milkdrop 2.

Link to modded Milkdrop 2?

Awesome! Thanks for re-posting it!  Milkdrop is about the only visualization I run on a regular basis.  Desktop mode rocks!  (Now if only I could figure out a way of making milkdrop display properly on both screens of a dual head set-up, instead of just one or the other...)

Everything was working great, then suddenly today as soon as I run foobar2000 it crashes. I've narrowed it down to shpeck plugin. When I don't have shpeck setup in the options foobar2000 works fine. As soon as I setup shpeck and restart foobar2000, shpeck is causing foobar2000 to crash. I then tried the modified milkdrop 2.1 files and foobar2000 minimizes to the tray and won't crash but as soon as I bring up the foobar2000 window, foobar2000 crashes. I tried my previous 1.0 setup and both my 1.1 setup and a fresh install. I am using the xchange theme but that shouldn't be causing the problem should it? Any ideas?

guess I can't edit my own post, but I loaded up my laptop and ran the same foobar2000 config and it also gave the same error something about not being able to load more than 1 instance of the shpeck plugin or something like that. Only difference is that it didn't crash on my laptop, shpeck when white then loaded itself like normal. My computer in my post above I installed directx and its partially working, when foobar2000 starts the shpeck plugin takes the entire screen and I have to hit esc key to get it to be normal. I'm too tired to look for the option to not make it run like that but maybe someone will tell me so when I look tomorrow it will make things easier. Thanks.

I am unable to get IPC_SETVOLUME working while using shpeck.  The following is in c#:
SendMessage(hwnd, WM_WA_IPC, iVolume, IPC_SETVOLUME);

Now, before you go asking me questions about the code itself, I must point out that my function works correctly with both the official version of Winamp and with both the other emulation plugins (foo_winamp_ipc and foo_winamp_spam).  I am using foobar v1.1 and foo_vis_shpeck 0.3.7.  I enjoy the increased functionality of Shpeck in comparison to the other two (both being outdated) plugins; however, IPC_SETVOLUME is a deal breaker for me.  My program needs it to function properly and I would appreciate if I could get a response/fix.

Yeah, it's broken, thanks for pointing out.

Unfortunately the old 0.3.7 codebase is long lost and the next version code is in a completely messy state and waiting for my time - so I can't just roll out a new version.

What's your use case? Would a simple binary patch be enough for you for the time being?
Code: [Select]

I just switched back to foobar from Aimp. First thing I looked for was a way to get better visualizations into foobar. I found foo_vis_shpeck and wow, it's really amazing. Nice to have milkdrop in foobar.

Still, I miss some of the Aimp visualizations, especially Rabbit Hole 1.1. I thought this might be a good place to ask. Is there anyway to play Aimp visualizations (.svp Sonique files) through shpeck? If not, then is there any other foobar plugin that can do this?

I'm not seeing Milkdrop in the plugins list in prefs, only AVS. Wiki says to check for NSCRT.DLL but this DLL does not exist in my winamp install dir.. Anyone got any ideas? What's the most recent version of winamp that has a working Milkdrop2? I'm trying an older version of winamp (5.35) to see if it helps.. It's just installed Milkdrop 1 tho..

After some trial and error, the latest version of winamp i can find to work with shpeck is 556, from:
http://www.oldapps.com/winamp.php?old_winamp=249

Copying the NSCRT.DLL from this to the latest 558 version doesnt seem to help

note that even though the 556 installer reports youre installing 555, it is truly 556 youre installing

Since I was the one who complained last time, I think it's my responsibility to post. My point/suggestion/overreaction was made at that time; I don't need to get into it again. If that's your preferred filehost, then that is your prerogative. Apologies for making a larger deal about it than it probably is.

Downloaded the file twice and both times I get several errors with unpacking saying something like "Unknown method in Winamp\plugins\....
Is the file corrupted or am I doing something wrong ?

I downloaded the file again and tried it with PowerArchiver and 7zip as well and get the errors again.
7zip says "unsuppported compression method".
I don't understand what is wrong.

I got that error too using 7 zip.  It looks like everything unzipped.

I just downloaded it again, and still no problems with PowerArchiver.  It not only extracted fine, but it also tested with no errors.  I don't know what to tell you.

I see in 7-Zip's compression method column = ID 21 which means LZMA2. This method is supported since 7-Zip v9.04 beta, so trying to extract this archive with earlier versions (as 4.65 for example) would provide the error messages as mentioned I assume.
This is HA. Not the Jerry Springer Show.

That did the trick. Many thanks !
