    Change appearance of 6.3 buffer fullness screenie?

    I am ok with the new "progress bar" graphic showing buffer fullness, but I don't want the dancing background lights. How can I tweak that acreensaver to not show the dancing lights?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    by dancing lights, I'm assuming you mean the visualiser. pressing NOW
    PLAYING button will change the display mode. Not all modes show the
    same visualiser, or buffer fullness. Options are available in player
    settings.

    KDF,

    I have examined all the "now playing" screensavers. Of all the variations provided, only one includes the buffer fullness. It is called "Show Buffer Fullness"

    In 6.2.x, "Show Buffer Fullness" showed only the buffer percentage, i.e. nothing additional was displayed beyond the song info you have specified.

    In 6.3, the display has been altered. Adding the "progress bar" graphic along the top - which graphically represents buffer fullness. In addition, the "Spectrum" is running in the background. I would like to disable the Spectrum element of the "Show Buffer Fullness" screensaver.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    This change was made 3 months ago (March 12), and you can see why from
    the note for Change 6562. I can't link directly to that change since
    viewcvs doesn't seem to like showing changes that far back directly.

    This change was included in the 6.2.2 release on April 25.

    That can be done by modifying the line that you see changed if you
    click on the diff link. However, this won't affect the Windows EXE
    install, as the code is already packaged there.
