It's been a long time since I made that last post and alot has changed. Now I use WinAmp 5.5, PaceMaker 2.1 and mp3+g plug-in 1.4. A second mp3+g plug-in has been available for some time now that allows playing a CDG directly from the drive. This plug-in is the ideal solution but it never worked right on my PC after many attempts and working with the author. To play a cdg directly from the drive I use PlayCD+G PE from CAVS. I have alot trouble lately playing other peoples CDG's which may be due to:
1. the drive which is less forgiving than a CDG Player
2. Window XP and/or all the security crap
3. scratched CDGs and some CDG protection schemes
4. interaction between players and/or resources
My basic use of WinAmp, PaceMaker and the CDG plug-in is very stable over 4-6 hours with dual screen operation. Some the the problems mentioned above somethimes appear when opening multiple windows and using more resources.
