View Full Version : Geiss II Fullscreen Problem
30th August 2003, 22:47
When I run the fullscreenmode, the visualisation runs normally, but I experience white 3 pixels blinking at the firast pixel row.
What causes this problem?
Windows XP Prof.
WinAMP 2.91 Full
Geiss II Plugin
TransparentFX plugin http://www.draconpern.com/TransparentFX/index.html
MP3Pro Decoder plugin
nVidia GF4 Ti 4400 Multimonitor (1st-1200*1024*85Hz 2nd-1024-768-75Hz)
Thank you for ANY response

Does this happen with those other plugins off and/or removed. I dunno what the transparentFX one might do?

...the whole first pixel row (up) is blinking between black color and visualization backgroud (so nearly all pixels there are black, but three or four somewhere in the midle are white or other colored sometimes).
The unwanted artefact don't start immediatelly after fullcreen mode started but after some type of effect (I think that the "spray" effect with dots causes problem.)
Thanx for your time...

Yes, it also happens when others plugins removed (I just did directory clean and fresh install)...
nVidia Detonators FX 184.108.40.206 Installed
Winamp "always on top feature enabled"
Winamp shows "in system tray only"

Does it happen in windowed and desktop mode.
I saw a similar problem with another plugin Ben's Tripex 3 when was beta testing it back in the day and that turned out to be alignment problem for all machine. Here I do not get the problem so it is not that as it doesn't effect tthis machine I am using atm.
You could try you texel alignment properties for you card.
I am not on my computer at them moment (this it's a a crappy P700, Matrox G400) so it is from memory. There should be 8 setting 0-7 either odd or even. Probably by defualt on 4 try seting it to 3. (or it might be vice-versa any change it + or - 1). Ryan has been know to have a problem with texel alignment in the past so maybe thi sis case again although it is a long shot.

The problem doesn't appeard in the window mode...

WHat about fake fullscreen and try playing with the option. Other than that I dunno. ANd Ryan isn't doing any more stuff on the Geiss II plugin so I guess you will be stuck with it.

...actually you have an invention I haven't :))
Fake mode will be probably less powerfull, but at least it is working and it gives peace to other monitors at multimonitor config.
