PimpBot 1.3 to support MilkDrop

not sure if you milkdrop people are aware of PimpBot.

PimpBot is taking care of compiling a NSIS installer for your Winamp AVS pack. Its graphical user interface allows you to fill in all requirements and it takes only a few mouse-clicks to compile an executable.

however, the latest version allows the creation of installers for milkdrop presets. i don't know if that's common, required or even wanted. since it was not much work to do, i simply did it. i tested its basic features and it worked for me (using the default presets coming with winamp 5).

i must admit i'm not a milkdrop user myself, so i might need your help to get this right.

* does md support videos of any kind?
* is milkdrop available for winamp 3?
* do you miss any feature in pimpbot?

you can download the beta and give me the feedback in this very forum.

thanks in advance!

not specifically - it will run throught the classic Vis plugin though.

Haven't used it, but I can't imagine anything you'd need to add. MD presets are single files. Very simple.

Fonts- Not that I'm aware of. Fonts aren’t used in presets individually. The only things I can think of are the individual preset files, maybe VJ sprites but I've never messed with the sprites myself.
Hey I will probably use this for my upcoming pack compiled of the best of the best MD presets I could find. (if pimpbot works Making it mainly for myself and a few friends who like to sit and stare at a nice 42" plasma driven by a badass machine while highly inebriated on various substances. Better living through chemicals! Sweet, apparently now I don’t have to script my own NSIS to distribute to friends easily.

Like music? Like milkdrop? You need a BLTC sandwich.

I'd liek to be able to use pimpbot to package up any files.
specify files, extract to directory, and title, and off we go.

and milkdroip support would pwn.

supporting all files would be kinda pointless, since my default script is made to work with winamp. however, if you want a basic installer use zip2exe, which comes with nsis.

had to fix the script a little, since it still used the word "avs" instead of "milkdrop" in some cases. get it with pimpbot 2.

unless any problems are being reported, i won't announce future versions of pimpbot anymore, since i don't plan to change the default milkdrop script.
