Current version: 0.97.6.2 (updated 2005-06-24 @ 15:30 UTC)

Description: Visualization using the projectM library. It's like Milkdrop, except the transitions between effects aren't very smooth and the fonts are on the ugly side.

Download location: http://msu.edu/~singergr/foo_vis_projectm/ for now. Once the plugin has stabilized, I'll see if the projectM developers would be interested in storing it at http://xmms-projectm.sourceforge.net/ with the rest of the projectM plugins.


This post will be kept as current as the forum software allows me. Feedback and other stuff will follow in the posts below.

One issue seems to be the inability to change the font. I may have missed something, but there doesn't seem to be a way to do so. Also it restarts the visualiaztion when you change tracks. Not sure if that just the way it works or a bug. Either way it's great for a first version. Hope to see it improved.

Eventually. I'd like to get the non-panel version stable first.

The font is hard-coded into projectM. I probably could make it possible to select a different font file without much trouble, but then you'd still be limited to using GLF fonts, of which I don't believe there are many. It might be possible to replace GLF in projectM with an OpenGL FreeType library, but that'd take more work and hence is something I'm likely to put off for a while...

It's a consequence of the way foobar2000 works if you implement things in the easiest-possible way. The next release will probably have some options to deal with this like in foo_vis_bacon.

Wow, finally a native Fb2k Milkdrop VIS!

We'll see what is the future of Milkdrop, ProjectM or the official source...but this is a great step forward!

Keep up the good work!

Btw, this doesn't work with 0.9 beta, right?

Version bump; not much new from a user perspective other than configurable flush handling. I'll start looking at the Columns UI API soon and should have a panel version done within the next few days unless something goes terribly wrong.

I'm looking forward to it! I'm actually waiting for the panel version before I test it out tongue.gif

In fullscreen the mouse is still "on top" for some reason. It was like this in the last version also. Also worth noting is that there doesn't seem to be anyway to switch from windowed to fullscreen or back again unless I've missed something. Also, nice job on making it no reload on a track change. But when the track changes it doesn't display the info on the screen with that setting. Great work so far.

Hrmmm, sorry for missing your post earlier.

I wasn't sure if I liked having it do that or not. Since you're the only person who's expressed an opinion on the issue and you don't like it, I'll see about making it go away in the next release (probably after a short period without any mouse movement).

Pressing the 'f' key should do it.

It'll constantly display the title in a really ugly font in the bottom-left-hand corner of the screen if you press F2. For some reason, projectM doesn't default to showing an animation in the visualization when the track title changes like Milkdrop does; I've been missing this a little and I'll probably put it in the next version as well.


Also, there's an alpha panel version available. Since I haven't been able to figure out how to get them to work, keypresses are not handled by the panel; it's look, but don't touch. If someone knowledgeable about the workings of the extension API could tell me if I need to do a little extra work to get keypress messages, if there must be something wrong since I should be getting keypress messages without doing anything hard, or if I should give up on keypresses and actually make a context menu, I'd appreciate it. I'd also appreciate it if someone with a multi-monitor setup on a spare system could tell me if fullscreen works on displays other than the primary one, since I have no way of testing it and for all I know, it sets your Windows theme to bright pink.

People are advised to update even if they don't care about the panel, since it turns out that there's a bug in the font-rendering library used by projectM that causes crashes if a song uses characters with ANSI values greater than 127. I feel really dumb right now for bundling the several hundred kilobytes of projectM fonts and presets into all three downloads, but I think I'm going to put off reorganizing things until the morning since I don't trust myself to build links correctly at the moment. People with slow connections may want to wait a while...

I also would like it to act this way

If think it would be nice if we could toggle fullscreen mode by double clicking inside the window/panel

That would be very welcome , especially since the animated text looks so much better than the text at the bottom of the window

For me , it doesn t work , it always displays the fullscreen on the primary monitor, but i don t have the "bright pink windows theme " problem.
I also tried to drag the window on the 2nd monitor and then go into fullscreen but the result was the same.


Some suggestions now smile.gif
-I d like to be able to set a minimum time before preset change
-Possibility to load a preset like in milkdrop instead of having to go through 30 presets before finding "the one"
-The possibility to make the animated title text pop up randomly during the song
-And of course the ability to change the fonts wink.gif


I can t test the panel version right now , i ll do it later
Thanks a lot for your job smile.gif

Would indeed be cool to set a minimum time before preset change.

keep up the ever increasing great work smile.gif

edit: in the panel version it seems to stop switching presets and sticks with the 2 red lines or the big blur. And since my keys don't work in the panel version it is just stuck there. Only remedy is restarting foobar...

New version released. It's very, very similar to the previous version except that it doesn't suffer from a serious but embarrassingly simple overflow bug that I spent entirely too long fixing. Anyone using 0.97.2 is advised to upgrade. .1 and .0 aren't be affected.

You can insert multiple instances of the pannel stack by holding "shift" while clicking it.
