    Help! - Cant get Media Engine Working?

    Hi Guys,

    I have installed Media Engine 1.7.7F onto my windows xp machine.

    It seemed to install fine then when I go into it it asks me to show it to some folders and set up some default keys and then i click 'Done'.

    Once I have done this it wont do anything! - Seems to be running when i ctrl-alt-delete and look at what is running. But it doesent seem to load up so I can see it?.

    Any one got any sugestions?

    Cheers

    Chris

    Ok here is the deal. I am sorry but mediaengine was not meant to actually be run on any non-current industry standard resolutions. Those include 640x480, 800x600, and 1024x768. The reason for this is because I have coded "standards" into the program to make it very stable when switching between different winamp visuals (you can remember the 1/2 screen menu problem). The main reason for just using small resolutions was b/c a lot of people don't use VGA monitors in their car. They use low-res TFT television LCDs which wont handle high res fonts very nicely. Sorry if this is an inconvenience, but M.E. was made to operate in a vehicle environment at low-res so its easy to read / see.
