Lightbulb can we use vbscript ? in winamp?

i think its strange because it's xml based player; why can't we use c++, or other programming languages in a direct x based avs?

i am not normal, no really.

If you can't say something nice, say something surrealistic.

1) Avs is NOT xml based in any possible way. Avs is coded highly in assembler.
2) AVS is NOT directX based, avs is ONLY cpu based
3) its very complex to make avs parse c++ to asm (what avs currently does with its script, parses it to asm and then runs it...basic compiler, theres where the speed of avs comes)
4) winamp 5 is not xml based anymore and winamp 3 sucks

Maybe you should try R4, i hear you can use bunch of weird-ass scripting and coding languanges in it

But for the future, here are some keywords AVS does not interact with.

AVS & 3D Acceleration = X
AVS & High Resolutions = X
AVS & High Framerates = X
AVS & Direct X = X (ooh sorry, you already said that. My bad)
AVS & other scripting/coding languanges = X

Texer Resources

Im retarded... err i mean retired!
Probably both...

hmm, if you cant code in directX, maybe its a problem with your flash internet DSL. Remember that you have to keep your scripts under 1.32ghz, or it causes a buffer overflow in winamp's meta-kernel.

If that doesnt work, then you'll probably just need to switch over to a non-lossy GPS, That way the subpixels should be able to interplex with the extra R-flops that DX will have in the register node.

Hope that helps.

hey sidd i didnt know you were so well-versed in extended APS graphics stuff
oh btw you forgot to tell him to use a TB mask for the subpixels

The only way people are going to get avs to run better is to get a faster cpu, that way not only avs runs faster but your whole system!

do you see somebody complaining about speed here? anyways: CPU speed getting faster has slowed down, and now keyword is parallelism, and avs doesnt take much advantage of parallel computing (only dm and movement effects i think). Tho' faster memory and larger chache can speed avs up quite a bit if im correct

Or simply optimize your code, and don't use it if it's not needed. That helps the most I guess.

Give the guy a break. You can find info on how to interplex the AVS/DirectX library with the subwave visual modulator on this page:

ok to clear things up:

why would anyone want to use vbscript for anything? it's incompatible, limited and a pain to write
Quote:

wrong, winamp is NOT xml based
Quote:
why can't we use c++, or other programming languages
use them for what?
Quote:
in a direct x based avs?
avs is not direct x based and will never be
