Hi there. First of all: Thanx for the great software. Really love it - gotta use an older version tho, as the latest doesent run on my i7 9700k with gtx 1080 - nor on my ryzen (vega graphics) notebook. All i get is a white screen on both machines (latest Windows 10).

Oh no! Thanks for letting me know, I'll look into it

I've made the previous release downloadable again.

Please can you check if the following works:

  • Download and extract 2031-02-26a
  • Download 2021-02-27 and replace the previous Visualistar.exe with the new one

I'm not able to check the build myself right now, but I'll have a proper look tomorrow.

Idiotic mistake on my part - I left the shaders folder out of the last two releases. Very sorry for the inconvenience! I've reuploaded it with the shaders again.

Thanx a lot :) Great piece of software btw. - any chance to implement some new visualz? maybe from good old "geiss v2" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MilkDrop)

I just downloaded the latest version and the image is displayed for a few seconds, and then it looks like the screen is covered by a black frame, as I can notice that it keeps rendering the animation on the edges, I can't move the window, but I can see the options and if I enable transparency it disappears completely, activating the singularity effect I can see a little on the screen, but it looks choppy, and sometimes the application crashes and closes.

Thanks for the comment, from your screencap it looks to me like there's no sound coming from the input you've selected. Most of the visualisers will be blank unless there's sound being played through them.

Have you enabled your sound card's playthrough device? It will be in the recording devices (you may need to right click and choose "Show disabled devices" to see it), and if you've got a realtek sound card it'll be called "Stereo Mix".

With some music playing, try going through the list of input devices in visualistar and see what happens?

Installing VBCABLE I could make it work, but I can't find a way to move the window, the application starts like this.

You can move the window around by dragging with the middle mouse button.

Alternatively you can click and drag the white boxes in the corners to move them separately.

I use a notebook, and about resizing the window is impractical and even if I tried, there is no way to reach the edges that are outside the visible area of the desktop monitor.

That's a very good point. I'll add a way of moving the window without the middle mouse button, sorry about that.

In the meantime, the config XML in the Visualistar directory has window position and size values you can modify.  At the top you should see the "Common" element looking something like this:

  <Common startMaximised="false" lastWidth="1080" lastHeight="1080" lastX="24" lastY="-9" alwaysOnTop="false" lastAudioDevice="1"/> 

You can close the program, change the lastX and lastY values, and when you restart the window position will be what you set.

Thank you very much for your time and your kind disposition.
