BUG: Main Window disapearance

Let me explain the status and sequence of what i've done

Before the bug appears:
- Standard skins
- Playlist is showed
- No icon in sytray nor taskbar, only the icon of the agent

What i'm doing:
- I minimize winamp
- Then i close Winamp (in the rightclic menu of the agent)
- I restart Winamp

The Bug:
- Only the Playlist is showed, the main window isn't displayed, however i feel the snaping system
- However in the right click menu the main window is checked as the playlist window, and uncheck/recheck ing don't changes anything

The bug continues
- Then i switch to other standard skins, but the main window is still invisible
- When i swith to *any* FreeForm skin, the main window is still invisible, through checked. And on some skins the playlist is problematic, on MMD3 the playlist became also invisible, on Modern the playlist is totally black (impossible to select any title).
- however after this if i uncheck/recheck the windows appear

The Bug still continues
- still after all this sequence, when finally the modern (or MMD3, maybe other freeform skin) skin is correctly displayed
- if i click on the main window to minimize then winamp dosn't minimize at all, but it displays in the bottom-left corner a portion of the standard skin main window
- and if i reselect any standard skin, this portion comes at the right place, but this is still a small portion of the main window, and the snap system is screwed up depending on the move of the the playlist or the main window



I hope I was clear and precise enough

I haven't done any screenshot, but i can do some if they are wabted or needed

Can reproduce here. I noticed this a while back and put it down to my system.

Just click on the Winamp button in the task bar to get it back.

I think the playlist is appearing when it shouldn't, rather than the main window not showing up.

Do you have any third party plug-ins? I have had a very similar problem. After reading your post, I trace it down to the NT Pitch DSP/Effect plug-in.

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

strange never noticed when you click again on the agent icon thet the main window finally appear.
But i also noticed this, if i'm not wrong i remeber a similar bug on the unoficial 2.92 and the following versions.

All plugins are from the nullsoft installer, exept
- AudioCoding MPEG4 General AudiPlayer 1.2 beta
- Valex AC3 decoder v0.5b
- VQF Plugin v0.91

- Smoke 1.04
- Keyboard Lights 2

but i really don't think this bug was caused by any plugin

You think correctly sir.
I've reported this bug at least 5 times.
The bug still exists in Winamp 5 rc8

1. Classic skin with main, pledit, ml, eq, vid windows open & docked.
2. Doesn't matter if Winamp is set to show in Systray or Taskbar (or none if using Agent)
3. Minimize Winamp
4. Right click icon -> close
5. Restart Winamp

See how the library and eq windows briefly appear,
then they minimize to the tray
and then the playlist and video windows erroneously maximize & appear.

The bug is that if Winamp is closed in a minimized state,
then it should still be minimized when reopened - applies to all windows.


So, basically, all you do is click the taskbar/tray icon,
and then Winamp maximizes and all is well.
It's just that the playlist window was already (erroneously) maximized...

If it bothers you that much, either close the playlist window before closing winamp
(right click icon -> uncheck "playlist", right click icon -> close), or maximize winamp before closing it.

Well, your system is more than powerful enough to run modern skins in Winamp 5
so you'll never even see the bug...
unless you prefer classic skins or something?

sure, even if i really like the modern skni, i still love some old standard skin, especially an old one from fli7e named pixelifier, or even beacon. For i like the spectrum anlyzer fire effect etc...

anyway a bug is bug, and must be hunted till it's corrected

Yeah, I'm sure the extra spectrum/oscilloscope options will eventually be implemented in the modern skin for v5.02 or later release... (edit: umm, yeah, much later, heh)

And yes, a bug is a bug . . . so let's hope it does get fixed.
Like I said, I've reported it to the devs on countless occasions...
but hey, who am I anyway?

ROTFLMAO!!!
Nunzio thinks back to all the emails from The Egg to Beta Testing concerning this

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

nor rc11 (not public)

I've a sneaky feeling that priority for 5.0 release is being given to modern skin related bugs...

Yeah well, whatever happens, we'll be compiling a list of known bugs after 5.0F is released . . . and I plan to add a section something along the lines of:

Bugs repeatedly reported which have never been acknowledged or addressed

1. Classic skins: playlist and video windows are maximized on reopening after closing Winamp in minimized state.

2. Classic skins: EQ window (and sometimes pledit) position is not remembered when coming out of fullscreen vis plugin / dvd / game in different resolution to desktop (bug introduced in 2.90)

3. mms:// streaming support is broken
Initially appeared in 2.90 where extensionless mms:// streams weren't recognized by in_dshow.dll (ones that previously worked with in_wm.dll in 2.81 and earlier by adding /.wma to the end of the url), but now, in Winamp 5.0, no mms:// streams work whatsoever. If the stream specifies a filename.ext then the stream is recognized and begins to buffer, but never plays (just seems to enter an endless buffer loop)

4. ID3v2 streaming title support is still broken (or not implemented)

5. oh there's more...

Good idea Egg
Maybe start working up such a thread either backstage or in the EL now and then you'll have it ready for the "new" forums upon Final release.

When 5.0F is released, Dazog will make a new thread in Winamp Bug Reports.
I'll just add to it, like I already have been doing with all his previous 'known bugs' threads.

We know about it. The Devs know about it. Just have patience. When it's fixed, it will be posted in the Fixed Winamp 5.0x Bugs Sticky thread. So just keep checking there.

I noticed the playlist maximized, main window minimized a few days ago. A simple click gets it back. Going to try some of the other skins.
But folks - have patience - it's a "new release" - and it works well.
DJ Egg - we know you are a GURU -

And Nunzio - glad that sense of humor is still around -

Good job to the 5.0 developers - it makes 3.0 look positively lame!

Annoying bug, but nce to find that the window is maximized when you click the Winamp pane in the taskbar. Who uses the modern skin annyway? I've yet to see a skin better than the classic one.

Would we honestly forget a thing like this?
I don't think so.

Here's your temp fix
(will be built-in to winamp.exe in 5.03)

main window disappearance?

if the main window doesnt show up anymore, this fixed it for me (wa2.91):

edit Winamp.ini, find 'minimized=2' and change it to 'minimized=0', then start winamp & problem=solved.


[Edit --> DJ Egg]
4yr-old thread revived for no reason. Whacked.
