RateAmp / News: Recent posts

RateAmp released

The plugin grows up and up - a big "thank you" to all the users!

The new release maintainly improves the config dialog. Even the LoadDatabase function and the fontsize for highresolution displays were improved.

Additionally the is a new feature: if you move a mass of files, you can use a new kind of "find and replace" function info the database-field "filename". So you have now the possibility to manage and update your RateAmp-database after simple mass file movements.

This is a new step for this small plugin.

RateAmp - 64/32 Bit compatible

now some more people tested the new version. I think its official 64 Bit and 32 Bit compatible.

Download and check it out!

Posted by ideec 2007-03-09


Sorry! The 64bit problem is still present.
The last release only generates a simple error message and unload the plugin, so Winamp should be useable as normal.

Rateamp - New Release - 32/64bit

now I hope the plugin is compatible to 64bit systems.

The MS Platform SDK say the used one are the right functions to "...write code that is compatible with both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Microsoft® Windows®..." I hope this will do so.

Additional there are a minor change: If you move files an empty directory will now be deleted.
