Hi, I made an account to reply to this thread.

I was also having issues with running milkdrop through shpeck on Windows 10 Pro x64, getting crashes after clicking the Configure button in Shpeck's Preferences.
It's working now, and the issue appeared to be the install location. Try changing the directory from the %appdata% subdirectory, as recommended by most guides, to another folder (e.g. Program Files x86/foobar2000/winamp).

Since Viktor's guide is 404'd at the time of posting, I recommend following this guide. It has the relevant links for the latest milkdrop package too.

I did not get the errors the author got in his guide. In any case, I think this will solve the issue for a lot of people.

Also, I installed the DirectX 9.0c runtime I acquired from filehippo, but I'm not sure if that's needed.

Good luck and enjoy them pretty colours.

Guys, what other high-q/high-res visualizers out there but MilkDrop? I mean high-quality ones, not the basic ones.

PS. I believe that this info should also be in the head post.

I gathered some archives from this milkdrop contest thread on winamp forum and put everything into a single archive. Some of the presets are nice and quite original, but most of them are variations. The ones that seemed nice to me I copied and added exclamation mark to their names.

Hello,
I have just finished installing shpeck and Milkdrop2 after upgrade to Windows 10 Home x64.
My experience:
1. You definitely need DirectX 9.0c runtime. Milkdrop was not starting without it and clicking configure button caused foobar2000 to crash. I got it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/de...ls.aspx?id=8109
2. I have placed foo_vis_shpeck.dll in the components folder.
3. I have placed milkdrop package downloaded from http://files.ilab.me/bin/foobar2000/milkdrop2.24_win5623.zip straight into foobar2000 directory (C:\Program Files (x86)\foobar2000), just like momothewizard. You need winamp.exe file (it can be just a text file, only the file name is important) in this folder so shpeck can identify it as the one with visualization plugins.
During the process I had to restart system and foobar few times but now everything is working like a charm.
Thanks and good luck!

I was wondering about  stereoscopic 3D mode which is hidden in milkdrop 2 dialog settings, unlike milkdrop 1 (i.e.: https://github.com/Doormatty/MilkDrop2/blob/master/vis_milk2/plugin.rc#L81) but can be apparently set manually in initialization file:

Code: [Select]
bAlways3D=1
nLeftEye3DColorR=0
nLeftEye3DColorG=255
nLeftEye3DColorB=255
nRightEye3DColorR=255
nRightEye3DColorG=0
nRightEye3DColorB=0

Still I don't see any change in rendering, while I would expect anaglyphic 3D effect.

Does anyone have experience with this, or some hints?

Experimenting with AVS Alpha Bending option , created a functional layout with a AVS visualization background.

https://youtu.be/Q5KqC0EzbMY

My problem is that the slider for the amount resets itself to 50% on every foobar2000 restart, and I cannot find an entry in winamp.ini [AVS] section that controls it.



Any help appreciated.
or any advice if such option in milkdrop2 exists.

Edit: And of course after I necro it decides to work. If I could delete this, I would. I'm sorry.

I found that, when you load the winamp directory into foobar's program directory, you cannot save changes in the settings. Placing the winamp in a writable location, I used my user directory, the setting changes stick.

That is handy for setting the frame rate to unlimited. :) As well as other visual settings. :)

It's good to have shpeck back again. :D

Ugh, I messed up and forgot to copy my Foobar install before I wiped and re-installed 10 on this newly built PC I have. I have done everything here, and MilkDrop runs, but it crashes Foobar when I hit configure. Doesn't matter where I stick the winamp dir. FML

You just have to right-click foobar exe and run as an administrator for the changes to stick. So you just have to do it once when setting it up.

Hello,

I used the manifest hack on the MilkDrop 2.25c DLL but it crashes when I try to configure it. Is there any way to fix it or is it impossible?

Thanks!

I've been successfully using Milkdrop in FB2k with Shpeck for years, full screen or windowed. However, I've recently started experimenting with "Layout Editing Mode" in FB2k, and when I split a panel and add the Shpeck component, then right-click, Autostart Milkdrop, Milkdrop opens in its own window and the panel window stays blank with [SHPECK] in bold letters.

How do I get Milkdrop to run in the panel connected to the rest of the main GUI, and not in its own window?

Thanks in advance!

Same here. The issue boils down to "vis_milk2.dll". Some versions threw an error when clicking "Refresh". Others, managed to refresh successfully and displayed the "Milkdrop 2.25c" option, but crashed upon hitting "Configure". Haven't compiled my own because stupid/lazy.

I've attached the vis_milk2.dll file that works with F2K and the recent versions of milkdrop. No more errors of crashing.

Thank you so much for these tips, guys!  :D  ;)
