Removing "showlen" or setting it to "="0"" does nothing

I'm trying to remove the appended songlength from the regular Winamp Modern skin songticker; I've gone into player-normal-group and player-shade-group and tried both removing and editing "showlen"; it does nothing. I've tried restarting Winamp, changing skins back and forth. Nada. Do I have to recompile? If so, how?

delete your studio.xnf file, it gets rebuilt but is probably storing it as 1 regardless.

Didn't fix; deleted studio.xnf, ran Winamp, still showing "showlen"; tried putting "showlen" back into the player files and setting it to false, then deleted studio.xnf again, also didn't fix.

do you try this on the <songticker/> object or the <text/> object?

<Songticker/>. There is no reference to showlen under <text/>, and I don't see a "display=" under <text/>.

afaik showlen does only work if you have a <text display="songname"/> object.
Maybe we can add a param for showlen="0" to Songticker for winamp 5.58

So, at the moment, this is a lesson in futility?

I did wonder.

So, how would I go about EDITING the basic Modern skin in order to make this work?

All I ask is eventually; sure, it's a little thing, but it's still something you CAN'T do with a program that's really big on its modability.
