Latest restricted WACUP beta release is build #18980 (April 24th 2024) (x86 & x64 changelogs) | Latest WACUP public preview is build #18980 (April 24th 2024) (x86 only)


NOTE: Beta testers are added in a limited & subjective manner as I can only support so many people as part of the beta test program to keep it useful for my needs.

Unless I think you're going to be helpful, not all requests will be accepted but might still be later on. Remember that beta testing is to help me & the limitations currently works for my needs for this project.

Milkdrop full screen sound dropping out
« on: May 01, 2022, 01:18:41 AM »
Hi all, I have WACUP 1.0.21.7236 running on my new AMD 5950x with a RTX 308ti.

When I start milkdrop fullscreen, my screen turns black and the audio drops out.  it takes about 4 seconds for the audio to come back.  This also happens when I exit fullscreen.  I have tried changing the content type reported to the display in the NVIDIA control panel, that didn't help. Anyone else experience this problem?

Thanks all.

I assume you're using the public preview build. I don't have this issue with the current beta build. A number of updates related to Milkdrop have been made since the version you're using. A new preview will probably be released in a month or 2.

Yeah, that due to too many who asked to be beta testers abused the privilege and gave the betas to others and/or didn't provide feedback as to their experiences.

Does it end up showing anything after the wait for things when starting to run it?

Also are you using native fullscreen & if so is it set to the native screen resolution or are you using the fake fullscreen option? Plus what OS is this being done on & is it just a single monitor or a multi-monitor setup (plus what resolutions are involved) ?

It's not an issue I'm aware off & such a setup probably shouldn't be having such a delay as my lowly 1050ti gets milkdrop fully up & running in around a second unless it's maybe related to some weird driver interaction &/or the initial enumeration of the milkdrop presets (just dumping a thought as I write this).

I doubt the beta version is going to make a difference as most of the changes have been related to desktop mode or trying to get it building as an x64 compatible plug-in with fullscreen mode not having been intentionally touched.

Yes it shows up, but after about 4 seconds, the music and visualisation run.  I am running at Native screen resolution on a single monitor, running Windows 11.
