Last post by jvaler -
Don't you find MS Sans Serif? (You have to select the "Bold" for yourself.)

Fans of the fixedsys also made versions with tons of unicode support:
Edit: forgot about if that looks like something you want.
MS Sans Serif doesn't look anything like that font though.

Unable to open item for playback (Tag not found):
"C:\JoeMusic\mSegaGenesisGYM\Shining in the Darkness\01 - Welcome to Storm.vgm"

Files attached,

 I just noticed I could not edit those files tags..
if i changed anything for .vgm or .gym for those games...
it would not apply.. and the [apply] button and [ok] button were not working..

foobar2000_v1.6.8_beta 02 = same issue, tag not found...
will try beta 01 next

ok even beta 01 of v1.6.8 didn't work..
but downgrading back to v1.6.7 from a RAR backup worked..

tag edited .vgm .gym files are playing again...
General Audio / Re: Order: Changing sampling format and sampling rate of Audio.
Last post by j7n -
I made the highlighted comment about MP3 decoding. Maybe that behavior has since changed. Izotope does promote the file to 32-bit before resampling.

It was reasonable to list all the steps in order without knowing what the precise intent of the OP was. Maybe he wanted to write a program and do perform those actions manually. I've heard that some people reduce the bit depth first, and the sound editor can't guess if that is wrong.
Support - (fb2k) / Default UI - Spectrum visualization - 120 Band - View is truncated at bottom
Last post by TobiasSekan -

When i want to use the "120 Band" setting of the "Spectrum visualization" the bottom of the Window is truncated.
The view of all other bands are okay and not truncated.
You can see it at the attached picture, the "-60 dB" is only visible halfway through.

Hope you can fix it
Best wishes

My environment:
* foobar2000 v1.6.8 beta 3
