    where to get a spectrum avs visualization, or how to get

    where can i download a basic spectrum analyzer visualization that will work with the avs plugin. i want to be able to embed it and have it be transparent, and i think avs is the only plugin that can be made transparent (based on the rrconfig). also, i found other plugins that have nice spectrum analyzers, but how do i get the window name to set in the config file??

    Guino just added support for the more plugins / visualizations to be able to be made transparent. As long as they are not DirectX based, and the Milkdrop plugin, is directX based.

    As far as an AVS spectrum analyzer and having it embed, you can download my skin, and in the skins/helper files, there are 5 different spectrum analyzers in different colors. You can use these in your skin, or any other skin. Just copy them to your AVS plugins folder.

    Milkdrop is DirectX based -- it can't be made transparent.. but other plugins that are not DX based can be made transparent...

    Good to know Guino, I edited my post above to reflect that as well.

    thanks! i appreciate the help. i guess because the rrconfig program said 'transparent settings for avs' i assumed it would only work for that. there is a really nice vis_satan plugin for winamp that has nice looking spectrums, however it doesnt appear in its own window, and only stays attached to winamp or to the top or bottom of the screen. i guess there is no way to embed something like that. just for future knowledge, how can one determine whether a visualization is dx based or not, and is there a reliable way to get the exact name of any window? and thanks for the avs spectrums!!

    edit: it seems that the visualizations will not work in winamp 2, but i downloaded 5.13 and they started working fine. still trying to figure out how to get the vis to embed properly. i got one called 'classic spectrum analyzers' and input the window name into rr.ini. it correctly recognizes the window and places it in the correct location, but the border is still there and its not transparent (i cant seem to find any transparency settings in rr.ini). like i said, i dont know how to tell if the plugin uses dx or not. here is a pic of what it looks like :

    The new winamp doesn't work well with RR. You have to save somewhere the new avs plugin (vis_avs.* and the presets) and uninstall winamp 5.xx reinstall the 2.95 version and put the vis_avs.* and the avs directory with the presets in the plugin directory. The spectrum analyzer will work.

    But I have a problem. If I have the VIS on and go to the GPS screen then return to the music screen, when i click everywhere the GPS program come back in front of RR covering the skin. This appens only when the VIS is on. I tried with different skin and the behavior is allways the same.

    Which GPS software ? this should not be related to RR itself as it can only manage one app at a time.. so it would either handle the GPS or the VIS, but not both at once..

    If the GPS comes up in the music screen and you hit the VIS button, what happens ?

    Also, check how similar/different are the GPS and VIS window names..

    Sorry for the late reply!
    The gps program is PCnavigator 7, but the problem seem solved by himself. Now it works well with anything changed.

    But I have another question for you. I'm trying to do a skin. I have a setup screen with the choice of the gps prg to use and the code is something like this:

    L,1,341,79,10,,,,9,"Franklin Gothic Medium","BYVAR;GPSCHOICE;=Sygic<<=PCNavigator<<=Au tomapa<<=iGuidance","CENTER"
    B,194,514,240,80,"SAVETOINI;GPATH;C:\DRIVE_XP\Driv e.exe|-no-safety -r719x485 -p81x115||SAVETOINI;GNAME;!Sygic DRIVE||SAVETOINI;GPSCHOICE;0||SETVAR;GPSCHOICE;0|| SETVAR;GPATH;C:\DRIVE_XP\Drive.exe|-no-safety -r719x485 -p81x115||SETVAR;gname;!Sygic DRIVE"
    B,454,514,240,80,"SAVETOINI;GPATH;C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance Europe\iguidance.exe||SAVETOINI;GNAME;iGuidance||S AVETOINI;GPSCHOICE;3||SETVAR;GPATH;C:\Program Files\iNav\iGuidance Europe\iguidance.exe||SETVAR;GPSCHOICE;3||SETVAR;g name;iGuidance"
    B,454,427,240,80,"SAVETOINI;GPATH;C:\Program Files\AutoMapa EU\tpcAm.exe||SAVETOINI;GNAME;AutoMapa TPC (v4.1.2.426) (C:\PROGRAM FILES\AUTOMAPA EU\EUROPE\)||SAVETOINI;GPSCHOICE;2||SETVAR;GPATH;C :\Program Files\AutoMapa EU\tpcAm.exe||SETVAR;GPSCHOICE;2||SETVAR;gname;Aut oMapa TPC (v4.1.2.426) (C:\PROGRAM FILES\AUTOMAPA EU\EUROPE\)"
    B,194,427,240,80,"SAVETOINI;GPATH;C:\Program files\Navigator7\PC_Navigator\loader.exe||SAVETOIN I;GNAME;!BarneyMainWndCls!Navigator||SAVETOINI;GPS CHOICE;1||SETVAR;GPSCHOICE;1||SETVAR;GPATH;C:\Prog ram files\Navigator7\PC_Navigator\loader.exe||SETVAR;g name;!BarneyMainWndCls!Navigator"

    and the button that load the gps screen is this:
    B,0,277,80,80,"LOAD;EXTERNAL_GPS.SKIN;$gname$;$gpa th$;||ACTIVATE;$gname$"

    the external_gps screen has:
    A,81,115,719,485,
    C,81,115,719,485

    The clipping works for all the prg but iguidance, i had to set the ignative support off.
    But there is a problem with iguidance, it loads but it doesn't come in front allways with the ACTIVATE command, sometimes works, sometimes don't at random.
