don't get me wrong, AVS 0wnz on my geForce2 GTS at home, even at 1024x768 @ 32bpp. but here at work, it's slow as fuck.

i'm running an Athlon Classic 600MHz with 128MB RAM, a 17GB hard drive, Win2K Pro SP2, Winamp 2.76, and whatever version of AVS comes with that. my video card might be the problem, though -- it's a "Matrox Graphics Millenium PCI" (that's what the driver says, so i'll trust it).

in fullscreen mode, at 640x480, with pixel doubling and the slider-bar set at "Higher Framerate", AVS is very choppy and slow. do i have a problem with the vid card, or is there a setting i can tweak in AVS? how do i get decent framerates so we can watch fullscreen AVS lovin' at work without bitching about crappy framerates?

You have to remember that fullscreen AVS is incredibly demanding on your system.

Try some of the visualisations designed for fullscreen mode...

nevermind ...

i got AVS to work at 512x384, 16bpp. it looks like ass, but it works. even with the shitty vid card.

also -- i was trying to get AVS to do that funky desktop thing -- you know, where AVS actually takes over your desktop background and the vis is rendered as your desktop? that didn't work. i made sure the color of the desktop and the color setting in AVS matched exactly (HSL=160,0,0; RGB=0,0,0) and both checkboxes were selected, but no dice. any word on that?
