Staff review

Somewhat buggy (tested on a Win2000 system)

Installs ok, but, the Configuration menu is very buggy. First off, if physically move the config menu across the screen, Winamp crashes. Also, if you select either 'Joystick Options' or 'Button Labels' in the menu, Winamp will crash. The hotkey setup is somewhat confusing, and the 'clear all hotkeys' link doesn't exactly work. Again, this was tested on a Win2000 system. Hopefully, others have better luck on a different OS.


notes from the programmer: - After some trials, I have found that it is necessary for the same VB run times that MS Office uses to be installed for this plugin to work properly. In these cases it has worked properly on all XP machines tested (a dozen or so), and 2 of 3 win2k machines. This plugin was just a fun way to learn to program, so I admit I don't know how to program for major compatibility. - December 10, 2005 by Josh Kostelecky
