Still kicking?

Here i was thinking AVS was dead and gone.
How many of you guys are still crafting presets?

Good to be back.

Hi nudge, been a long time.

I still think about it now and then and I get inspired from ads etc..

But I always used to make my presets in one 'sitting', otherwise I lose track of what I'm aiming at and other loose ideas. Now that I have a family and a full-time job, I only get an hour or maybe two max once in a few days and that's just not enough.
In the past I had a PC hooked up to my TV and audio set with winamp and AVS but I use kodi in the livingroom on a raspberry pi (openelec) and AVS isn't supported. So I don't even use AVS myself anymore. I still use winamp on my desktop upstairs but WA usually runs in the background.
And to do it just for others, well there's hardly anybody downloading it since there are no more addons on winamp.com. dA ever only had a fraction of the downloads wa.com had and that was mainly targeted at the community of other artists. It just feels like I'd be doing a lot of work for nothing.

Maybe things could get livelier again if radionomy would get that new version out and bring back the addons section of the site... (crosses fingers) and I can get the time and inspiration.

(A stable AVS would help too )

that's never going to happen. plus AVS was not going to be part of Winamp anymore when I was involved and instead just provided as an external plug-in download for those still wanting it. whether that will still happen i've no idea now as I'm not involved. though I still hold that it's pointless to ship a buggy plug-in as AVS is and if generally the only way to get it to build 'vaguely correctly is under VC6 and that's just a pain to maintain nowadays).

I'm well aware of the sorry state AVS is in . It was just wishful thinking.
If I wasn't so bad at programming I'd gladly try to do something but this is just not for me...

I still make quite a few presets, and I'm aware of a few other people who do the same. You should add me on Skype or something so we can talk about it
