AqualungPortable

ok Guys this is my test release of AqualungPortable
when exiting the app you'll find that the music still plays. it is because there is an empty space in the tray menu where an icon should be but isn't there so just right click the empty spot. if you get it right you can open a menu where you select quit

needs some cleanup

There's a AqualungPortable\App\Aqualung\upx2.exe file that does nothing and I assume it can be removed. You UPX compressed all the files you could, except for all the files in the AqualungPortable\App\Aqualung\ladspa directory and subdirs. Is there a reason for not including that directory and it's files?

No icon shows in the systray, just a blank area where it should be which you can hover over to see the menu.

Oops

thats a modified upx tool I made I have seem to have forgotten to remove. and the compression is only for .dll and exe's and I believe the report I got from compressing the files there where already compressed.

UPX will compress .sys files

UPX will compress .sys files too.

The files in the directory I mentioned are not compressed as I said. I have a script which uses UPX to compress all .exe, .dll, and .sys files in a directory and all subdirs.

Results for compressing just the following directory:

AqualungPortable\App\Aqualung\ladspa

Before: 413KB
After: 195KB

Remove this file: \AqualungPortable\App\Aqualung\images\Thumbs.db

And turn off thumbnails in Explorer so it doesn't happen again.

The program can't detect my soundcard so my testing of this app is done.

Clarification

The program can't detect my soundcard so my testing of this app is done.

After some pain and suffering and then more pain...I've discovered my computer's sound card is jacked up so the fact that Aqualung can't detect it isn't the fault of the app.

???

Does it still save there. on my tests it copies the xml files to the settings dir and deletes the folder .aqualung from the users profile

music_store.xml is

music_store.xml is definitely there, .aqualung is not. The only problem is that the GTK filechooser interprets ~ as %USERDIR% (or what the hell that variable is).
