View Full Version : Someone have pitty on me (a frustrated newbie)
28th January 2003, 23:06
I have searched the FAQ's high and low, found advice, suggested plug-ins, and I am about at the end of my rope. I am trying to get my visualizations to work. Everytime I try to start one, I get "no mmx support found-cannot run avs get the non mmx version". I installed the program from this (http://forums.winamp.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=122340&highlight=MMX) thread, and I "still" get the same error message. Would someone please help me or point me in the right direction?
I've been trying to fix this myself because I know the answer has to be out there already, but I am not finding it, so I am apologizing in advance. If anyone can save me from my misery, I will be your slave for life!

What kind of computer do you have?
28th January 2003, 23:27
I am running Win. 98.
I have both WinAMP 2 & 3 on my system also.
Thank you for your trouble.

Not the OS. The processor(pentium, etc.)

Oh, I'm sorry...
Genuinelntel Pentium Processor

Yeah, I would reccommend getting a newer computer. I don't know why that program didn't work; I have no personal experience of it. Any computers after the early Pentium I's will have MMX.

=( was afraid of that. Thanks anyway for your time.

It'd probably be cheaper and much more worthwhile just to get a new processor and install it yourself...that and getting a new computer with a decent OS (read: NOT winxp) costs even more money nowadays.
But I don't see why you couldn't run AVS with the non-MMX AVS version... :/

well, after a few more hours of trying everything I could think of, I finally got the avs to work in the winamp 2 version, but couldn't get the full screen to work, which means I just have to sit really close to get hypnotized I guess. Better than nothing I suppose though. =/

You can stretch the window so that it takes up more space and turn on pixel doubling if it slows down too much.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try that.
