    hi there,

    do you have your original milk_img.ini and milk_msg.ini files?
    (i guess so)

    rename them to: milk2_img.ini and milk2_msg.ini
    an put them in the plugins directory.
    should be something like: "C:\Program Files\Winamp\plugins"

    there are actualy milk2_img.ini and milk2_msg.ini files in there after the installation. maybe the buttons havn't been updated to the new names.
    the syntax in the files hasn't been changes as far as I can tell. mean: evereythin that has worked with 1.04 does work with 2.0.
    except for this little issue:
    please, if you can, verify this issue or tell me, that it works for you.

    there is another thing...
    images specified in the milk2_img.ini file are relative to the winamp\plugins\milkdrop2\ directory.
    (an explanation is in the original milk2_img.ini)

    PS: I've just checked: the buttons try to open the old files, without the 2 in the name.

      Milkdrop2 msg or sprites arent working for me

      Hi, I have thes ame problem. Windows XP SP2. Winamp 5.5.
      The milk2_img.ini and milk2_msg.ini are not installed and i click on 'Edit Sprite' and 'Edit Custom Message' (in MilkDrop 2 Configuration) but got messages

      error in ShellExecute

      I have tried renaming the milk2_img.ini to milk_img.ini with no success.

      What is strange is that I have edited the text in the ini and the msg is still diplayed with the old text!
      for instance 03 will show "Cheese" unedited. when I change Cheese to Hello.. and press F7 to reread. It STILL says cheese. Ive rebooted, looked for other milk*_msg.ini, REMOVED milk*_msg.ini but it STILL shows tha tsame text.. is this Hardcoded?
      Please help, this is driving me nuts.

        please ignore the edit-bla buttons, they refer to the wrong file. in the initial 2.0 version. (is there a fix yet?)

        where are you looking for the files?
        they should bei in:
        c:/program files/winamp/plugins/
        at least in the same directory where the vis_milk2.dll is.
        try searching for the dll on your harddrive, maybe you find the ini-files along with it.
        I've checked it: when the msg.ini file is not present, there are no messages.
        so, yours has to be someware.

            very well.
            please do me a favour and verify this issue:
            This forum is for discussing troubleshooting and bugs about the MilkDrop plug-in for Winamp. Rules: 1) keep to the topic! 2) scan the forum before posting a message, to make sure no one else just posted the same thing; 3) make sure the title of yo

            just try any windings or other symbol font and check if you see symbols or letters.

              Hey guys, sorry, that was a dumb bug - the two buttons on the config panel (edit sprites, edit custom images) were linked to the old (milkdrop 1) ini files, milk_msg and milk_img.ini.

              The next release of winamp will have MilkDrop 2.0a which fixes this - they'll open milk2_img and milk2_msg.ini.

              The version you have now, though, will work fine, just manually edit the milk2 files, they are there.

              ** NOTE that in milkdrop 2, the files are stored in your 'personal' plugins folder, not in the main one!:

              c:\documents and settings\<yourusername>\Local Settings\Application Data\winamp\plugins\

                  The advance user (es. Milkdrop) work fine only with administrator user.
                  Install inside an administrator user and run inside the some user.

                    The advance settings (not user) (es. Milkdrop) work fine only with administrator user.
