Displaying in ATF a value from unusual tag field - in various file formats

I have this problem with Advanced Title Formatting. It seems that I cannot make it display in my Winamp 5.666 a made-up tag field; or any other tag field than a basic one


When the file is in WV format, then there is no problem: I can see what [and if anything] was written in my made up field which I named TEST. But when the file is in FLAC, MP3 or TTA format- then I see nothing. Because apparently these three formats display via ATF only values that are placed in basic fields:
- TITLE
- ARTIST
- YEAR
- COMMENT
- GENRE
- FILENAME [which is not really a tag field to be precise]


So my questions would be:

A] Is it really true that only WV can display for example also a made up field; or a field like ORIGARTIST- and not only ARTIST? I use three different lossless formats and those specific formats for a reason. And so I cannot just simply switch to let's say WMA, assuming it also works just like WV. But in a worse case scenario I could eliminate TTA [because there are some other problems with it], thus being left with only FLAC [and MP3] to deal with. Is there some way to activated a full "ATF readability" for FLACs [and MP3s]?


B] Is there a way [with a rather complicated code like the one here http://forums.winamp.com/showpost.ph...7&postcount=9] to display something if there is something in a made up field or less popular field like ORIGARTIST? You know, a code that would

if there is "X" in field TEST show in ATF "X"
if there is "Y" in field TEST show in ATF "Y"
if there is "Z" in field TEST show in ATF "Z"

or alternatively

if there is "X" in field TEST show in ATF "X"
if there is "Y" in field TEST show in ATF "XX"
if there is "Z" in field TEST show in ATF "XXX"
if there is "Q" in field TEST show in ATF "XXXX"


?


C] Is there a way to add to already existing in ATF [and working A-OK] code, some small insert that would

take the last two characters [preferably also ignoring the white spaces that might be at the very end] from a field like GENRE and display them as two first characters in that field

or alternatively

take the last string [that would have to preceded by white spaces] from a field like GENRE and display it the very beginning of that field

?



Any of these three above questions resolved in a positive matter would make my problem with ATF go away
