Good to see my code! :)

Hi there all!

I haven't visited here in *AGES*.

I just downloaded winamp 5.11, and I still don't see any more of my presets other than Phoenix (don't worry about it, but I don't think Phoenix is my best yet, see this thread).

But I am very glad to see even though none of my presets made it to the later versions of Winamp, that some of my code got used in (the random polygons) some of the new presets.

Eo.S. - Heater Core C_Phat's_class + sparks_max

(and maybe others too).

I've only spent about 20m checking the new stuff out. And I must admit the things that gets done with the custom waves these days are amazing.

Some of my favourites I've seen so far is definately

Cat Scan
Cubtrace v2 (AMAZING!)
Single cel Angel Birth
Glowsticks music minimal



Then obviously there is a good mix of the old stuff with the new. But I just want to say I am amazed at the new stuff that is coming out, and keep up the great work!

Regards
Reenen

Is that you're code for the random transparent blue outlined shape? Because I thought it was fishbrains, I think..

?

Yes.

In the thread I point to there are comments about the "geometric" shapes being negative, though I liked it.

(I just clicked it and it didn't work... so here goes another try this thread

But the last preset where the shape's diameter changes is also pretty impressive (IMO), because it uses some logs to alter the size with different polygon sizes.

code:

rad = rad-log(poly)/100;
rad_add = (1-beat2)*(rad_add*rate2 + vol/25) + beat2*(rad_add*rate2+vol/8);
rad = rad + rad_add;

I am glad I inspired some people. And Eo.S seems to be pretty good.

Phoenix was a result of how I think a lot of presets gets made - trying to do something, and failing.

I was trying to give my "fire" preset (I dunno if it's still available here somewhere) more realistic smoke... A failed attempt, but I saw this heart/phoenix shape coming out. And I prefered the phoenix name because it came from my fire preset.

But almost everyone I asked saw the heart more than they saw the phoenix.

Hehehe.

I personally think Eo.S. is one of the best authors. But I'm kinda partial to her, being she's my wife.

Have you seen our fire skys preset?

I've been trying to fix the diagonal lines on CubeTrace v2 (do you also see that sometimes the diagonal lines takes the "long route" of the triangle, and other times it just take the hypotenuse? This gives those lines a kind of a shimmer effect).

Anyway, here is a fix that I found.

In the normal per frame code:
was
q1 = mtime*0.9;

fix
q1 = int(mtime*10)/10 * 0.9;


There are still diagonal lines (which is fine), but they do not shimmer.

PS: What I *LOVE* about milkdrop is that it's where math "comes alive".

I think then it looks slightly better if the mtime var. is turned up like so.

And the fire preset is slightly older, but still kinda cool.
