  • Visualizations

    Am i doing something wrong with the Visualizations in the latest ME.

    I've downloaded several dll vis's and placed them into the Plugin directory under MediaEngine2.0.

    I then go to the Vis tab in setup and select the dll. I then play some music and click on the vis button but I just get a black screen. This happens with everysingle vis I have tried.

    Any suggestions?

      Try launching the vis first with just winamp. Then use m.e to launch it.
      Get MediaEngine !!!

        milkdrop - did run fine with winamp, however with m.e it does the black screen thing.

        could this be due to the new version of winamp? (5.x i believe) should we just run older versions for simplicity? (maybe 2.x, or 3.x?)

            ok, whilst attempting milkdrop, during when the screen is black, i alt-tab'd it and indeed milkdrop is running (windowed, not fullscreen). if you click anything, m.e. comes back foreground with the black screen.

            ?

              ?

              when you first ran milkdrop was it with the winamp in the c:\mediaengine20 dir?

                Use the version of winamp thats included with mediaengine. Winamp 5.0 is nice and all, but m.e is not designed to work with it. Try using the original winamp. I've used Tripex, R2 Extreme, Geiss, and Milkdrop successfully with the included version of winamp.

                    BTW, whenever you delete your winamp.ini file, all of your plugins get "un-set". MediaEngine WILL automatically re-set these to the defaults by creating a winamp.ini file itself (winamp will do this if you open it without opening m.e AND there is no file in the dir already) so watch out.

                    If you have winamp troubles with any specific plugin, or winamp working with m.e in general, do this...

                    1. Make sure you use the version of winamp that comes with MediaEngine.
                    2. Delete your winamp.ini file.
                    3. Launch MediaEngine
                    4. Close Mediaengine. Open winamp. Right click the taskbar and go to Winamp/Preferences. (Don't use Show main window or you will see it all the time in m.e)
                    5. Set up your plugins.
                    6. Close Winamp.
                    7. Launch MediaEngine
                    Get MediaEngine !!!

                      i followed these steps exactly and i am still getting the issue described where the screen goes black when the plugin is started. im using the g-force plugin, available from soundspectrum.org.

                      one note about your steps - when you say to close media engine and start winamp, media engine does not set winamp to have a taskbar icon apparently, and you cant access the program. to fix this i added "taskbar=1" to the winamp.ini file that media engine created. other than that, i followed the steps exactly.

                        Winamp is just not "seeing" the plugin dll. Just make sure that ALL the plugins are configured right.

                          well, i just tried geiss and geiss works but g-force has that problem mentioned. i copied over every file, i just moved the entire plugins directory...

                          it appears the plugin IS being started, it just is not coming to the foreground when full screen?

                            well, i figured out the problem. the plugin being used has to support full screen on startup automatically. if it wants to start windowed, it will stay hidden. anyone having this problem be sure to configure your plugin to start in fullscreen mode.

                            i had to edit the gforce script to do this, and all works well now.
