Milkdrop Guide

Can someone give me a basic guide to MilkDrop?

Can you say stuff like how to download and install presets, and any presets, options or other stuff you would recommend or not recommend?

Cheers

All that stuff is in the readme I believe. Look on Ryan GEiss's site for the readme online www.geisswerks.com.

Hopefully teh downlaoding of presets should be self explaintory. I did try and make my install pack as idiot proof as I could (no pun intented young Ryan). It tell you in the installer to press L to navigate to list of presets.

If you think of anything to add let me know.

Oh yeah, I have thought of two more questions. Does the latest install of MilkDrop include all the previous preset packages or do I need to download these seperately? And I assume that when I install a newer version of MilkDrop all the previous presets remain installed?

Cheers

Humbug, remembered another two questions. What is the difference between the Regular and Beginner presets? Do the regular packs include the beginner presets or do I need to download both?

Regulars are ones by people who post their presets here quite often, beginner ones are from newbies.

If you want all the presets, get both. Some people prefer just to have the regulars ones, as theyre generally better, but i say get em all and rate down to 0 the aweful ones...

Okay, thanks for all that! I just have one final question (honest!).

When selecting the directory from which to read the plugins (the default is ....winamp\plugins\milkdrop) does MilkDrop also read the plugins from all the subdirectories? The presets packs install to ....winamp\plugins\milkdrop\all presets, so does MilkDrop read and use all these as well, when the directory selected is the main milkdrop directory?

Thanks!
