    Streetdeck Visualizations

    Just put together about 20 or so modified .milk files that will run in Streetdeck (they were tested on 1.1.1.0). A few really nice ones! Most are "Geiss".

    To use them, go to c:\program files\streetdeck and rename your streetdeck.milk file (I think you have to be running at least 1.1.1.0 to have this file). Select one of these and rename them streetdeck.milk and enjoy!

    Definitely found my new one in there.

    If you don't know how to set up streetdeck to have visualization background, open streetdeck, go to settings, adjust application colors and background, then uncheck "use static wallpaper".

    On a similar note, download TwistedPixel here....

    http://www.visolu.com/TwistedPixel/

    And it will allow for "winamp" milkdrop visuals to show up in Streetdeck when playing tunes. After loading it, go into settings/music, and under visualization, you now have the choice of twistedpixel. It also displays the song inside the visualization like winamp does. Kinda neat. You can also convert your favorite visual to .vbs.

    This is a very nice collection!
    I organized the files, so you can copy-paste all of them without renaming, and I also gave them names, so when we discuss any of them, we know witch one we are talking about.

    I noticed some of them didn't work in Dev environment. They appear as if the background was solid color. I named those Just_Blue, or Just_Yellow. And the one i named sun glare was very laggy. I don't think they are all as they should be. I haven't tested in my car yet.

    Just to make it clear: These are the same visualizations as in danielhks post, but with better file structure. Visualizations.rar also has screenshots attached, Visualizations_Only.rar are without screenshots for those with slower internet connection.

    What I did was downloaded and installed that twistedpixel program. In the folder, there was a large group of .milk files. I just started at the top, deleted the stuff GOC suggested in the other thread, and then tried it. If it worked, I just added whatever to the end of streetdeck in the streetdeck.milk file. A lot would not run, but I found that if 1 of a group (geiss for example), most in a group would work. Some of those, if you watch them in WMP, are fantastic! But I'm not sure what you would have to do to get them to work with SD.

    Hey, it's a start! And if more people start looking and playing, we could get one heck of a collection here!

    Something to keep in mind. When I put that file together, there were no blue only or yellow only. My screensize for the computer I am working on (laptop) is 1440x900, so there may be something in the file that makes it scalable. That would make A LOT more work right. I would say half of the files I worked with (and didn't include) were all blue or all some other color.

    Edit: Your first "just blue.....you have to get the apps color right in between 2 colors and you will see it. Pretty good one actually. (I'll add here what I find)

    Same with the second blue. They are both like a wormhole effect.

    The wierd snowstorm is my new one. If you go into the file and at the bottom, there is a stereoredblue something or other. Change that to 0 and you can make it any color you want!

    i really appreciate the fact that someone is still making stuff for SD.... but for those of us who aren't really computer savvy, can you explain what this is? screenshot maybe? I'm interested but don't know what we're talking about here.

    thanks!

    It's a visualization for the background of StreetDeck.
    It is visible behind the menus if you aren't using a static image as part of your skin.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    in the .rar you will find streetdeck.milk files. You just copy this to your streetdeck folder (C:\Program Files\Streetdeck\) and thats it. In my rar i included screenshots, so you can see how it looks.
    If you want to enable background visualizations you have to uncheck "Use static wallpaper" under "Adjust Application Colors and Background" in Settings.

    If you don't have decent video capabilities on your motherboard or video card, you won't see them. I had terrible onboard video originally, then saw the backgrounds on my laptop.......I went and BOUGHT a PCI video card just so I could have them in the car.

    Artificial....I took that snowstorm one, turned off the redbluestereo whatever, moved the color to the deep blue, then turned my framerate down to 30-45. Looks like a wicked lava lamp!

    What do you think? Looks like small changes in the files can make HUGE changes in the pattern. Darque.....why aren't you getting into this? You were one of the first to ask about changing them when they came out, weren't you?
