Support - (fb2k) / Re: FB2K v2/v2.1 cannot support Monkey's Audio 4.11 version APE file
Last post by Case -
No reply from the format author so I took a look myself.

I'm curious how the file was created. The file header has marked the file to be version 4.11 but Monkey's Audio 4.11 and even the latest 10.16 mark files as version 3.99.
Old Monkey's Audio decoder only checked file version field and resumed processing if the file was new enough. New Monkey's Audio checks in addition that version is 3.99 or older.

New decoder happily decompresses the file if I remove the <= 3.99 version check, but that might cause unexpected issues. I won't dare to suggest such change to Peter without understanding what this nonsense is about.
General - (fb2k) / Re: foobar2000 v2.0 bugs
Last post by Case -
The 64-bit foobar2000 installer intentionally doesn't touch the 32-bit installation. Though shortcut icons obviously get overwritten by the latest installation.

It would be best to uninstall the 32-bit version before installing the 64-bit player. But you can still do it later. Unfortunately I learned too late that the modern side "Apps and Features" doesn't list both bitness variants, but the "Programs and Features" option in Control Panel can do it just fine.
Alternatively you can enter the old directory under Program Files and manually launch the uninstall.exe from there.
Do not just delete the directory, otherwise the registry will be left with unwanted and invalid entries.
Support - (fb2k) / Surprise Crash! F2k not booting up
Last post by isaiah36 -

Foobar suffered a fatal crash while I was making a new playlist. It is not booting up normally, nor in safe mode. Crash report attached in TXT and DMP formats. I upgraded to version 2.0 from 1.6.7 but it crashes while importing the library.

Less than a week ago I started streaming vintage jazz to an online community, using Foobar of course. I'll fail to stream today. This is very disappointing. Foobar is stable and reliable usually.

Any help is appreciated.

Automatic updating doesn't work because your component doesn't use the filename you have marked in the repository.
I think the best solution would be that the ownership of foo_midi component page is transferred to you.

i don't know if this is a bug or intentional but updating to 2.0 64 bit stable appears to leave the old 1.6.x version folders/shortcuts/etc. intact though you can no longer uninstall it from windows' app list. is it safe to delete the old folders or best to just leave them alone? i guess future releases will clear them eventually?

I've been maintaining Falstaff's scripts for years now. He's no longer around.

I've fixed some Smooth font size bugs for the next release.

Once upon a time, Smooth Browser did have a background wallpaper option but I nuked it because it was cluttered and looked crap. I have no intention of restoring it.

And if you really want transparency, you'll have to use the same trick I gave you for other scripts - comment out the line that fills the panel with a solid colour. Smooth Browser can be found here...

I installed the foo_dyndec plugin.
And it works now 👍.
@s3n0:  it is no longer necessary to use foo_dyndec or the "d" prefix on search tags to search dynamic radio stream metadata if you are using the latest foo_run plugin version (0.4.5) for the search.  Florian updated foo_run in September of last year to make dynamic searches possible as-is, in both 64-bit and 32-bit versions.

Go ahead and remove foo_dyndec, update foo_run, then just delete the leading "d" in all your search terms and you'll get results from streams just fine!
