Title: winamp display freedom gone????????????????
Post by: ClintJCL on January 25, 2004, 10:15:31 AM
Hello.  I have a bug.  M ýç3‰@+winamp display freedom gone????????????????ClintJCL216.200.103.195ut;Arist - Song - Album - original artist - comments".

This seems to confuse EvilLyrics.

For example, mine will say "Agent Orange - Bloodstains - Living In Darkness", where BAND=Agent Orange, SONG=Bloodstains, ALBUM=Living In Darkness.  This causes EvilLyrics to mistakenly display the lyrics to the SONG Living In Darkness.  Thus, EvilLyrics downloads the wrong lyrics for almost every song in this situation.  It came up on the very second song I ever played with EvilLyrics running.

I am guessing if I reverted back to my original titlebar (Artist - Song), that the bug would go away.  However, I have used this display format for at least 5 years and am quite accustomed to it.

I know there are mIRC plugins that fetch the song name and album name from a running winamp.  So I know it's possible to gather these two values discretely.  IMNSHO, this is how EvilLyrics should be doing it rather than just lifting the titlebar.

Thanks for listening.

Indeed, it will be great if it used the right fields...
I said it in this forums before, that I use "Artist - Album - Title"
which show up in EL as "Artist - Album Title".....

Why indeed can't it's just catch the right fields ?
