i've been using litestep for about a month now...works great.
one thing i'm not overjoyed about though...some of the controls on my skin (nonstep), don't work w/ litestep.
i installed the winamp plugin manager, and the advanced controls for winamp...and that got the play, stop, pause, and next track buttons to work. but nothing else would.
i just installed geekamp.dll and dynamp.dll, and it got the previous track button to work.
however, both the Open button, and the position slider bar still don't work :(
is there some code i need to change in dynamp/geekamp to make these work? is there something else i should download?
any help would be very appreciated.
have you set the
winamppath "path_to_Winamp.exe, or $audioplayer$"
in your theme\step.rc?
i've done that now, and no changes. both position and open button still don't work :(
just to clear things up, it's the Open button for the files that doesn't work...not open button to run winamp.
do you have both installed at the same time if so don't.
what version of winamp 2,3 i personally like foobar2k better.
could you copy your settings please in here for check out what it could be? :)
what settings should i copy in here?
i have winamp 3.
the settings where you call winamp like
*shortcut "" 234 32 image.png .none .none #1T !amp_power
sorry, like i said, i'm not that experienced with this sort of stuff.
in what file could i find the settings like that?
ElseIf ResolutionX = 1024
*shortcut "" 232 -40 amp_power.bmp amp_power2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_Power
*shortcut "" 262 -40 amp_show.bmp amp_show2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_Show
*shortcut "" 292 -40 amp_file.bmp amp_file2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_loadfile
*shortcut "" 322 -40 amp_prev.bmp amp_prev2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_prev
*shortcut "" 352 -40 amp_play.bmp amp_play2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_play
*shortcut "" 382 -40 amp_stop.bmp amp_stop2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_stop
*shortcut "" 412 -40 amp_pause.bmp amp_pause2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_pause
*shortcut "" 442 -40 amp_next.bmp amp_next2.bmp .none #5TSHo !Amp_next
*shortcut "" 471 -40 possliderbox.bmp .none .none #5TSH !none
*slider "" 479 -34 0 "sliderbar.bmp" "sliderhandle.bmp" BAHI#5 [WINAMP]
hmmm.... they look like they have to work, but I don't know what the S in #5TSHo should mean.
an idea is, that you delete the SH in the lines and try again, cause H stands for "start hidden", now try again, and we'll see what will happen.
oh, another dumb question from me is.... is your resolutionx 1024??? ;)
yea, my resolution is 1024x768
i removed the SH in the lines, and still nothing. :(
now it looks like:
ElseIf ResolutionX = 1024
*shortcut "" 232 26 amp_power.bmp amp_power2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_Power
*shortcut "" 262 26 amp_show.bmp amp_show2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_Show
*shortcut "" 292 26 amp_file.bmp amp_file2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_loadfile
*shortcut "" 322 26 amp_prev.bmp amp_prev2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_prev
*shortcut "" 352 26 amp_play.bmp amp_play2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_play
*shortcut "" 382 26 amp_stop.bmp amp_stop2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_stop
*shortcut "" 412 26 amp_pause.bmp amp_pause2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_pause
*shortcut "" 442 26 amp_next.bmp amp_next2.bmp .none #5To !Amp_next
*shortcut "" 471 26 possliderbox.bmp .none .none #5T !none
*slider "" 479 32 0 "sliderbar.bmp" "sliderhandle.bmp" BAHI#5 [WINAMP]
just thought i'd rule something out.
i tried getting it to work w/ other themes, with no luck.
do you have LoadModule for it?
yea, in the step.rc file, under loadmodules, i have:
that's what it said to do under the Winamp Advanced Controls readme.
no, you have to load dynamp or geekamp.dll in the right directory
so you have to take care the dynamp.dll IS in the thme modules folder!!!!
yep, i have that in there too.
and dynamp.dll is in the modules folder.
do i need to edit anything in the dynamp folder to make it work?
no, dynamp and geekamp only works with bang commands (!amp_power, !amp_show......) only thing, load this moduleset the winammpath the bangs (they are already set, so now it has to work)
it's wierd, because the litestep theme, and the winamp skin were made by the same person. and the winamp theme is made for winamp3, not 2. so it doesn't make sense why it wouldn't work after installing dynamp. (geekamp came w/ the theme)
