Presets using Global Variables which I have fixed

As many of you may know, presets using global variables are known to instantly crash Winamp when switching to a new preset. This occurs on all pcs running Windows 7. I have read that this phenomena only affects 64 bit operating systems but mine is a 32 bit os and I suffer the same problem. I have searched my hard drive for as many presets that I could find, that use global variables. On the advice of WoTl, I copied and pasted the code from the global variables into a superscope, and then disabled the ape plugin "globmgr.ape". This wasn't as easy as it sounds, because in the process I would have to close Winamp twice and disable and re-enable globmgr.ape for every preset. If I didn't do things in the right order, Winamp would crash instantly. Fixing each preset took me several minutes.

None of these presets are my work. I take no credit for the time and effort put forth by the original artists.

I post these presets knowing that they now work fine on my Windows 7 pc. I hope they work on yours. Please let me know.

I have included 3unfixed but renamed-to-make-inert copies of the following presets - synth-c - fallbot, synth-c - cool down in hell, and synth-c - dancebot, with the hope that somebody who knows what they're doing can fix them. If there are any more presets out there that I have missed, let me know, I'd like to try to fix them!

One last thing - you either need to delete or disable the plugin globmgr.ape in order to not crash Winamp.

don't forget gvm is able to read from .gvm files. usually a load of assign(gmegabuf(index),something); if a preset uses a .gvm file (i.e. for a 3d model) paste that in a separate ssc's init part. that has a character limit though so if the .gvm is too long the gmegabuf assigments can be separated through as many ssc's as you want.

how does convo filter worked?...

it doesnt seem to work at win10(2016-7)

also, i made some more fixes from forums compilation 1 and WOtL's Abandonware 3Ds..

i even made a wfc1 intro remix as the intro of the pack.

"Global Fixes Pack 1"

P.S. is it possible to fix presets with eeltrans?

None of my presets are in this, so I can only come to the conclusion that everything I do is perfect.
