Yep  8) this is it  :Thmbsup: Works perfectly; Thank you.

2 more questions: Is it possible to rip CDs with Trout? Can you recommend any good SW to make FLAC-files from my CDs?

Thanx

You're welcome.  Thanks for testing.

No, it's not.  I recommend and use Exact Audio Copy (commonly called EAC).

Can you recommend any good SW to make FLAC-files from my CDs?

You can configure EAC to encode to FLAC.  Otherwise, rip to WAV and then use any of the myriad of audio converters out there to encode your WAV files to FLAC.

Control c willl not copy text while trout is running.  Control x works as does a right click and selecting copy.  I'm guessing this has something to do with the Add URL function.  It may or may not matter that i'm running Windows 98se.  I am using v1.0.6 build 41 - 2011-11-01.

One other oddity - unless I'm missing the obvious - is that upon a clean install of Trout, the VU-meter will display solid bars following the audio level; using the above configuration file, the bars are segmented as if the theme were enabled under XP (but we're still talking about Win98SE). One thing I know for sure is that the current version of the Uberskin engine installed by Revolutions Pack does not skin the vertical progressbars, so they should display as MS originally intended them to.

Unfortunately, I've only tested the CTRL+C issue after reading the post above mine from dave1, so can't offer a useful answer (I'm more of a mouse user).

As for the VU-meter, the last version I've had running before upgrading to 1.0.6 was one of the 1.0.5 series without VU-meter, so there's no comparison. First 1.0.6 version I ran was build 24 which exhibited the segmentation straight away (since the config file was already present).

Hopefully dave1 could offer some really useful information.

I have only used trout since this most recent release  of 11-01-11.  I noticed this only today.

i installed the portable version from the zip file.  Just now I installed a second copy from zip and tested and the same problem occurs.  All I have are guesses.  Perhaps the Add URL function or the hotkeys option might be the source of the problem.

Set "Seekbar_Themed=1" to "Seekbar_Themed=0" in your config.ini (or remove the setting entirely).  Did you copy this config.ini from an XP/7 box?

Perhaps the Add URL function or the hotkeys option might be the source of the problem.

I'm at a loss as to why it's doing as it doesn't exhibit the issue under XP and Win7.  Trout sets very few hotkeys by default and none of them are Ctrl+C.

Wanted to thank you for the nice app and certainly considering that there is no problem on more modern OS's I would not feel put off in any way if you decide not to pursue the problem.

One other possible clue though is the global and the local option in under hotkeys.  They do not work as I would expect.  For instance, choosing volume up for local with numpadadd as the key functions for volume only when trout is in focus; expected behavior.  However, focusing notepad and pressing numpadadd results in nothing being typed.

I can understand this may be very difficult to solve.  So please don't spend too much time on this.

I tracked that bastige down.  It was hardset in one of the third-party libraries that Trout uses.  Sheesh.  :-\ The interesting thing is why it didn't affect Win2000 and above in the same manner.

Now, as to the other hotkey issue, that is something I can look into.  As you can imagine, Win98 testing for Trout has been extremely minimal on my part but Drugwash has kept me honest over the years.   ;D  Anyway, try this latest build and see if it solves the Ctrl+C problem.  You're immortalised in the changelog forever now.   ;)

    ! Under Win98, the Ctrl+C hotkey was being erroneously set.  (Thanks, dave1)

Whew!!  That was quick.  Works fine.  TYVM.  I'll keep an eye out for the other issue and thanks again.

Thanks for the report.  In the meantime, just treat all Trout hotkeys under Win98 as global.  I may end up disabling the "Local" feature for Win98.  It just depends on how big of a PITA this will be to fix.

Did you copy this config.ini from an XP/7 box?
Come to think about it, I may have moved the entire folder around, between machines with different operating systems, for testing purposes, some time ago. Used to be serious about testing but in the mean time, life happened. *sigh*

Nevertheless, a bug could turn into a feature - if this "theme" option would be available under both 9x and NT+, one could safely copy config files between setups and still have a place to tweak things down to personal preferences and OS capabilities. ;)

Still, there must be some nasty code in there, because the seekbar's properties should normally not interfere with VU-meter's; it was probably a shortcut to avoid adding VU-meter specific settings in the Options dialog. But you won't get away with it that easy, while I'm around. :P

Seriously now, I'm very grateful to you for having been so kind as to keep up with 9x when everybody else even forgot this OS family ever existed. And - as you can see and already knew - there are others who have a place for you in their own "Kind and dedicated people" hall of fame.

Thank you very much!  :Thmbsup:

P.S. Forgot to mention: please check the portable folder where you pack the archive; there's another archive inside the main one, with an executable dated October 30. I guess it started to happen around build 40. No biggie, just that it doubles the size of the archive, which may unnecessarily impact on your bandwidth.

Welcome PinoyBoy  :Thmbsup:

I just want to say I get a huge kick out of seeing new members make their first post saying that they like a program that came from the site.

And no one is responsible for more such posts that Skwire.  I don't know why but his apps just make people feel happy and feel like posting a thank you.  It's nice to see.  :-*

THANKS! This is the first player in Windows that is really comfortable in a long time!!

And just a small note: With the latest build there are some missing covers yet (Yes I've checked and I can see them with another players).

Thanks in advance!

Could you make one of these files available to me so I can test with it?
