Schmendrick is an unknown quantity at this point

Same here. Win98SE, Celeron 466, TNT2, DirectX 8.1.

Right after the install and a few times right after booting my computer BSplayer 0.85.492 worked just fine, but most of the time it looks as if the program doesn't start. However, Task Manager shows a running (?) process called "bplay.exe", which can be killed easily without any further error message.
The debug vesion, on the other hand, works _always_, but it takes very long to start and load files (playback is just fine).

Maybe this will be of any help for the programmers: I've used ATM ("Another Task Manager") on the hanging bplay.exe-process to see what modules are opened: It shows only advapi32.dll, bplay.exe, gdi32.dll, kernel32.dll and user32.dll, while with the debug version it shows 26 more modules right after startup (i.e. without loading/playing any file).

In "Jim Beam" wrote on the same topic:

>- all 0.84 releases (builds 460-843) played movies correctly (with subtitles). Last functioning version was 0.84.843
>- all 0.85 releases (builds 844-892) had the same behavior - they were only in Task List

Does anybody know where I can download these older versions to try them out on my system?
