v1.0.4 build 1 - 2010-02-04
    * Revamped Trout's upper GUI.  (Thanks, Lesmo16)
        1) Larger, multi-line title text area.  Right-clicking on this area will allow you to copy the text to your clipboard.
        2) Larger album art.
        3) Volume control moved horizontally under the control buttons.
    + Under Tools, Options, String formatting tab, you can now preview any and all formatting changes easily.


Hopefully, I didn't break anything.  =]  However, if I did, you can download the older version here:

http://skwire.dcmemb...out_portable_old.zip
http://skwire.dcmemb.../trout_setup_old.exe

Here's how the new changes turned out.

Hi skwire
Maybe a bug under Tools\Options\Audio notification on new track\Enable--TTS $title as token

On playing new song it gives the last song played.

An old issue here - apologies if I repeat myself: since I disabled second monitor in Display Properties (doesn't exist physically anymore), Trout's main window remained at coordinates outside the now only monitor. The Options window also opens at old coordinates, far from reach.
Would it possible to add code that checks if saved window position matches the virtual screen boundaries and if not, move it somewhere inside? I know it's easy to edit the config file, but for the sake of professionalism... ;)

Also, after I made the corrections, I noticed the recent changes do not apply correctly on my Win98SE machine: the seekbar overlaps the info window and the volume gets overlapped by the latter; most likely you forgot to apply the changes to the Win9x part of the respective controls.  :-[

Have you thought again about making the info area a RichEdit control? I've tested the cRichEdit wrapper some time ago and it works fine in 9x - I've even posted a test script at the AHK forums, in the BASS thread [link]; should work without problems in XP+ too, I guess...

Thanks for keeping it up!  :Thmbsup:

v1.0.4 build 6 - 2010-02-20
    ! Fixed graphical screwups under Win9x that were introduced in version 1.0.4 build 1.  (Thanks, Drugwash)

It's been on the ToDo forever.   :D

Doh!  I actually DID have this adjusted under Win9x but I must've reverted those changes before compiling the build.  They should be fixed in the above version.  Sorry about that.

Extremely unlikely that this will happen.

Recently i've come across a "bug".

If "allow internet access" is not checked, but "Enable last.fm support" is checked and credentials are entered, it still connects to last.fm when closing the options screen.
Even when it says <<"Allow internet access" must be enabled >> on the last.fm tab

Just a minor thing, because trout is unresponsive unless it times out probably, but keeps playing :-)

    ! Lyrics window wasn't reporting properly when no results were found.
    ! Some of the Last.fm feature weren't obeying the 'Allow internet
      access' settings.  (Thanks, DeVamp)

Very nice player  :) Are there any plans for an equalizer ? It sounds nice and clean overall but it would be nice. Nice work  8) I'll be using this as my audio player for awhile thx.

Oh yeah I found it at http://www.softpedia...s/Trout-Skwire.shtml

I sent them an updated link for the latest build.

Thanks for the kind words.  As for an EQ, it's been on the ToDo since the start but I just haven't gotten around to adding my test code into the main code.  If I do add one, it'll be a very simple one...maybe five bands or so.  Definitely not a huge EQ since I'm not fond of the CPU hit that they bring.

Thanks, again.  They've been methodically adding all my apps over the past few weeks.  http://www.softpedia...re-Empire-65728.html

Np  :) Sweet a 5 band would be perfect I'm not a big fan of big EQ's either.If they are more than 5 it seems like you have to mess with them a lot and you never really get a decent sound.I used Jaangle for awhile which is a 3 band I think.Decent player along with Foobar as my main music app. but I'm liking yours a lot :D

You have a lot of good features that so many players lack.Global keys are huge if you play PC games and I like the way it removes the track from the playlist after you play it  :Thmbsup: Thx for the quick reply.

Skwire, please have another look at the diplay of the $year tag.
It seems to work porperly for ID3v2.3 but not for ID3v2.4 type.

Solution: ID3v2.3 uses TYER but ID3v2.4 uses TDRC frame.
Perhaps Trout could look for both frames and then display the right one?

Just a heads up: AVG Free just flagged trout.exe as being a threat (some generic downloader).  It gave me this link for more information:

http://free.avg.com/...IxY2Q5Zjc2Njc1NTAwMA

Is it just me or is this link worthless? It just takes me to the Virus Encyclopedia search page but doesn't actually perform a search or tell me what I should be searching for to get more information.
