3rd Party Plugins - (fb2k) / Re: Columns UI
Last post by Sergey77 -
Hello Dear musicmusic,
I'm happy to use Columns UI, I really like it, thanks for your work!
And I would like to offer one improvement.
Could you realize the possibility of viewing the full contents of the MOD/XM sample list in the window "Item properties" of CUI as in XMPlay (See attach XMP pic).
Now all the sample text is not visible in the window only if you select the function properties (See attach Foobar CUI).

Thank You.
Best Regards.

Hi, I made an account to reply to this thread.

I was also having issues with running milkdrop through shpeck on Windows 10 Pro x64, getting crashes after clicking the Configure button in Shpeck's Preferences.
It's working now, and the issue appeared to be the install location. Try changing the directory from the %appdata% subdirectory, as recommended by most guides, to another folder (e.g. Program Files x86/foobar2000/winamp).

Since Viktor's guide is 404'd at the time of posting, I recommend following this guide. It has the relevant links for the latest milkdrop package too.

I did not get the errors the author got in his guide. In any case, I think this will solve the issue for a lot of people.

Also, I installed the DirectX 9.0c runtime I acquired from filehippo, but I'm not sure if that's needed.

Good luck and enjoy them pretty colours.

Ugh, I messed up and forgot to copy my Foobar install before I wiped and re-installed 10 on this newly built PC I have. I have done everything here, and MilkDrop runs, but it crashes Foobar when I hit configure. Doesn't matter where I stick the winamp dir. FML

How to add a checksum in the program settings?

GoaLitiuM, if you wish to give a shot to my modfied version of Minibar its latest version has configurable frame rate and it stops screen updates when playback is paused or stopped.
This is much better! How fast did it used to update before the change? It stutters much less now than before (about the same as foo_wave_seekbar in GDI mode), but there doesn't seem to be any difference with 5fps vs 60fps for the stuttering. Both plugins still stutter when the playback is paused though, and sometimes the minibar doesn't refresh the view when transitioning from paused to stopped state.
Support - (fb2k) / [Q] Releasing Snap Package on Linux
Last post by mmtrt -
Hi I've been running this alright, so I have created various Linux packages like [ .deb .AppImage .snap ] of foobar2000 working good and this has some issues of sound cracking some times but not that bad.
So I am asking for permission if I can distribute it to public if not that's OK I can understand.

Anyway thanks.

What? I thought it was the other way around: your .wav files sound better if played back as administrator? :-p

Perhaps there is. The DAC does have a tube rectifier as you mention.

You have a few others, , maybe there is one in the Related whitespace characters without Unicode character property "WSpace=Y" section that does not show as box.

Yet another alternative: fill up the end with a lot of ordinary spaces, so the horizontal line to the right will be gone, for every entry - making them all "look the same".
Hm, Is it possible to simply read headers, and then go to the very end of the file and read it from the back? And make the seekbar works backwards? Of course for all those emulated formats still full decode and caching would be necessary...

Thats not how input services in fb2k's ecosystem work. The reverse decoder is simply a proxy which decodes files with the input services registered, reverses the samples, and then plays that temp file back.

Theres no way to force input decoders to go backwards.
