not too sure as to how this plugin works, but does it have effects files (like Sonique does) if so can i add or remove some of them??
(not that whats there isnt good im thinking of the future if i find some addons..)

scott, Im finally got V8 working with the Hercules...nobody is responding ...the milkdrops are not working..I downloaded you new one and its in the visualizations folder but....then I moved the soniques folder to visualizations and works...there could be something to do with vdj connecting to my nVidia Geforce GTX 460m cards? that worked fine..shoot! have'nt tried a video yet...wait up....

Tracker - chill out!! There are hundreds of users posting and we are trying to help everyone.

Slow down. Where is Milkdrop currently sitting within the effects section? VideoEffect? Visualisation?

I had moved it all to visualizations.now I'm moving the presets back to the plugins folder as scott mentioned..but what about the dll? Im getting a "seems that milkdrop is imcompatible" message when trying to open within the plugins slot.but I also selected it in conf and nothing happens.yet sonique works couse I dropped the sonique folder into visualiztion as well..why is scotts install sending the milkdrops to the plugins folder? then says to move it to the visualization?

Ok here's where everything is for me and it's working....

Presets in a folder called "MilkDrop Presets" located inside the Plugins folder.
milkdrop.dll and milkdrop are located in the Visualisations folder


The reason it's good (but not essential) to move the two files to visualisations is you can then use them to cover audioOnly tracks on a video set.

thanx dan...knew I could count on you.btw seen your creations at skins download..wayyyy before you posted..ha! sayd yeah dan its on it...oops I misread that dude at the top..he,he

Inviato Tue 13 May 14 @ 5:07 pm
jeez..still nothing...I get a popup saying "incompatible" when chosing from the video effect slot on mixer pannel? and no picture when selected at Audio config....also...I think they need to add enter buttons for selections in configurations.same applies for the new "mapper".we cannot confirm the new selection...agreed?

Incompatible will be returned if the plugin failed to initialise. The only reason that would be is if your folders aren't where it installed them.

As for why it goes into VideoEffect - well it's a v7 effect too and that doesn't understand that folder. So I install it there for now, and 8 users can use it there or move it if they wish.

No idea why that would be I'm afraid. Does it work for you in v7?

Inviato Tue 13 May 14 @ 6:53 pm
ok scott,u know this has worked for me in v7,which btw I still have installed.now u mentioned the problem been the folders location but dan told me that he's got them like this:milkdrop presets under plugins,milkdrop folder & dll under visualizations.that would not work.you sayd that it shpuld be where originally installed.remember btw I was running your betta for a while now.so now I moved everything back to the plugins,open vdj after yet another computer restart...and click on video screen,its blank until i select a sonique file,then I noticed the milkdrop dll in the dropdown list showing up again (it wouldnt before,and if you see and click on the visualization folder at the plugin slot select it will give a error of something like cant select subfolder and lockup and vdj losks up.but this time i got the message milkdrop incompatible but and a sonique activated.when i clicked on the slot button to turnoff the present sonique...the milkdrop seemed to be running behind it..I sayd "cool" but then VDJ crashed and this time it wont restart.here is a major "Beef" now.we cant use a regestry fix while vdj is down? I think they better get busy and get real...there will be situations like these and we need more...I will try this once more..and see..
