Easter egg

The nul[esc]l[esc]soft easter egg has returned to rc8 using the winamp modern skin. This time it makes the main window change opacity according to the bass beats in the song(the more bass the more winamp disapears)

make sure winamp's main window is your foreground app, then type n-u-l [esc] l [esc] s-o-f-t

Already found (discussed somewhere in WA5 Wishlist i think), but yah, it's quite cool. Though... I wouldn't want it activated all the time. would be rather annoying.

And yes, you do have to have Win 2000 or XP to support the Alpha blending.

That's what the [esc]'s are for

No one can be told what the easter egg does, you must experience it yourself
ok, sorry for the bad matrix reference, but it's a visual effect and the description doesn't do the effect justice. It fades in/out on the beat.

I was away for a while.
But I'm feeling much better now.

At first when I tried it, I thought it just faded in and out, I didn't realise it was a form of beat detection, but in any case, it's pretty cool

Oh yes... Quite so.

Just wish they would figure out how to make the beatdetection work for something other than dance music. My llamas are getting a headache.

I'd like to be able to invert the behaviour of this Easter Egg - so that it gets more solid for harder beats instead of more transparent...

it awesome though

I just tried it, and it worked, but when I switched from the default skin to anexia it crashed.

/edit

switched to anexia without it and it crashed. Must be a script error in the skin, not with the egg.

I'd keep it on all the time if it would turn opaque on a mouse over, b/c it's frustrating when you need to hit a button

Yeh... I wud keep it on all the time too. Only problem is that it keeps detecting the beat when I play movie files too! Also, anyway to have it work without pressing keys each time it WA is started?

Cheers

Okay, I'm drinkin' right now... but that's a freakin' cool little extra. About as good as the headbangin' llamas! At first I thought it would be there to, well, just to be there... but it actually works pretty good. Doesn't seem to take much of the CPU either. Nice. Now... they need to have an option to keep the headbangin' llamas stay on, even after closing winamp (you know, not reset back to standard).

the nullsoft easteregg also works in the classic skin... it puts "it really whips the llama's ass!" in place of winamp on the main window

Whoops...

Hi there rogerwaters247,

Be careful when replying to threads. This one is several months old and it is usually frowned upon to revive old threads.

The "Nullsoft" e-egg for classic has been around long time. Different classic skins have different messages depending on if the skin developer put the e-egg into the skin.
