Blight, let me welcome you to the forum and again, thank you for your donations to the site. I appreciate your posting here and would like to say I do agree with you on what makes a piece of software "perfect" and it being relative to the users need.
In my opinion, I consider ZP to be the best for the sheer fact that it works and it does what it does well.
Also, in regards to the saving bug, yes, there was a problem on my pc. I have been losing settings for various apps due to a registry issue (powerarchiver, putty, ps tray factory are a few of the programs affected). But it has been resolved and that is no longer an issue.
I also intended to post that nvidia's drivers were responsible, however i guess i forgot to.
Anyways, good to see you here and thanks again for making such a versatile player!
