3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: NEW ESLyric v0.5 - an alternative lyric show component
Last post by ngs428 -
I am looking to remove the following lines at the beginning of lyric files and it does not seem to work..  the [ti;, [ar:, etc always start the lines I want to remove.

[ti:Duck and Run (Live)]
[ar:3 Doors Down]
[al:Away From the Sun (Special Edition)]
ESLyric does not support the ability to remove these four lines.

Thank you for confirming.  I appreciate it.

Only one suggestion for this component so far: An option to skip conversion to 8-bit samples (thus skipping mapping from 0...255 to -1...+1 values since floating-point samples already have -1...+1 range to begin with)

Since foobar2000 obviously gives an array of 64-bit floating point samples to visualizations, which contains some samples outside -1...+1 range (aka. above 0dBFS samples) and aren't clipped nor wrapped-over, and AFAIK the effects of directly using floating-point samples rather than a downconverted one (especially where it is ported to a player that gives floating-point samples to visualizations rather than 8-bit integers) are noticeable on some presets (e.g. waveform visualizations that are very sensitive like high "size" value for simple waveform and/or extreme "scaling" value for custom waves) and in case of highly-amplified or extreme bass boosted audio input (exceeding +6dBFS), the waveform no longer clips nor wraps around

Oh right, I had no idea about any .dat file. This seems unique to this component. I was thrown off by the configuration folder being mentioned. I guess writing there is fair game.

edit: the obvious thing with any component problem is install a completely brand new portable fb2k install and the component. See if it works as expected. If it does work, you can assume the configuration in your main install is somehow broken. But if the "new" install misbehaves in the same way, it has to could be a component bug.

edit2: i really have no idea about read only. IIRC fb2k itself grumbles at you via popup dialogs on shutdown but components writing their own files will have their own ways of handling it.

But would it hurt to delete the foo_vbookmark.dll.dat file that is in the profile/configuration folder, as a test?

Also, if that foo_vbookmark.dll.dat file happens to be set to read only could that cause the disappearing problem?

Asking about the read only because if I want my portable fb2k to have the same bookmarks as my regular system install fb2k, I copy the above mentioned foo_vbookmark.dll.dat file to the portable installation's profile/configuration folder.
