View Full Version : 99g
12th September 2001, 12:44
Geiss, I have a dual boot machine, win2000 and me and never had any problems with milkdrop from the beginning till now. 99g in win2000 works fine, but in me when I hit P for the playlist the whole pc freezes and I need a reboot and scan disk. Inspiron 8000 256ram 32meg ati vid card, all updated drivers, nothing running at bootup but the needed. I will go back to 99f for now and wait for H. Thanks, StudioMusic

Same here. Win98, Celeron 466, 96MB, Voodoo3 PCI, Winamp 2.76. Hit "P", very hard crash.
Other than that, it's still great ;)
Edit: oh, running in fullscreen mode.

I also have the same problem - that is, the whole computer seizes up when you press the "P" key. I'm running a Celeron 667, 128MB RAM, Win98 with a 8MB Intel i710 video card.
The checkbox to "fix slow text" has improved my framerate dramatically... up to 10 fps for some presets, which is pretty amazing.... I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw how smooth it was running. :-)
How come this makes such a difference? I had never had any problems that Krash & others had reported about a slowdown when any text was on screen, so I was very surprised (and impressed) to see the speed rise so significantly.
Also, could you explain why MilkDrop completely misses the beat when running with a crossfader? I think it has to do with the way that a crossfader buffers the music before it plays, and thus MilkDrop can't be accurate in picking up the beat. Is there any way to fix this, or does anyone know of a crossfader (I use SQR v1.72) which won't have this problem? All I really want is to kill the gaps at the end of songs, but even running the SQR crossfader with only the gap killer on and no other settings, MilkDrop still appears to be completely be out of sync with the beat, as well as having problems cycling through the presets at the beginning / presets not picking up any beat for the first 15 sec or so (the length of the mixing buffer on the crossfader).
If you could recommend any way to have MilkDrop working in conjunction with a "gap killer" while keeping it in sync, that would be great.. would be an even better tool for parties :-)
Oh yeah, and the animated titles are cool, but are there any other options planned for how to bring them in (eg. come up every 30 sec, there's other suggestions on the boards too), that would be awesome!

Same problem here, press "p" and it crashes very hard.
Win98, P3 667, 128MB, ATI Rage Magnum (32MB), Winamp3 Alpha L8R
[EDIT]It crashes quite nicely in all three modes

This is getting repetitive but:
PIII 450 nVidia Vanta 32MB
64MB ram, Win98SE, Winamp 2.76
I hope that this problem will be able to be fixed, as the idea of a playlist in MilkDrop is awesome!
Keep up the excellent coding!

Same problem as the others above, when I try to playlist browse with 'p' I get a hard lockup. Don't think my system info will be any help since the problem seems to be across the board but its a 450 PIII , 128MB RAM, Windows 98, Latest winamp and GeForce 2 Pro:eek:

Definitely sounds like a win9x problem - I'm running Win2k Adv Srv, and it works a treat. I imagine Geiss is looking into this as we speak.
