    Pulse 1.02 - c:/Program Files (x86)/Team MediaPortal/MediaPortal/MusicPlayer/plugins/visualizations/Sonique/Pulse
    I must have been blind ;) I couldn't see it in the list (probably was looking for a capital P :cautious:) but found it now ;)

    According to your logs pulse should have been started properly:
    Code:
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,078] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [INFO ] - BASS: Creating visualization...
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,081] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [INFO ] - Visualization Manager: Closing current visualization plugin...
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,082] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [INFO ] - Visualization Manager: Visualization plugin close not required - nothing loaded
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,082] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [INFO ] - Visualization Manager: Creating new Sonique visualization...
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,085] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [INFO ] - Visualization Manager: Initializing pulse v1.02 visualization...
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,098] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [INFO ] - GUIMusicPlaylist: Default Playlist loaded
    [2014-07-12 13:24:41,131] [Log    ] [MPMain   ] [DEBUG] - BASS: Create visualization succeeded
    The problem with the visualizations is that i can't figure out if the correct vis is started, since i don't have names of the visualization shown.
    When i set pulse to be the default, this is what i see:
    VisualizationPulse..JPG
    But no clue if that's really pulse (but my logs show the same as yours).

    So i started testing several Bass visualizations, since those display the name on the bottom, and every time i enable fullscreen vis (after changing the default vis in config), it starts with the correct visualization. This confirms it's working for BASS visualizations at least, so maybe the Sonique vis isn't 100% correct, and therefor fails?

    But... if you both are 100% sure this worked prior to 1.7.1 then we have might regression from a change longer ago. :(

    I'm fairly sure - sorry, that is a good as the grey matter gets these days - sorry Homey:)

    It's certainly the case from my other testing only Sonique is impacted and it's not just the specific visualization - I've set it to others within the Sonique set and same.

    Work around is to copy the Sonique vis directory you want to start to ZZZZ, then it will start correctly - which if fine IF you always want same one, otherwise it's a bit of bugger:).

    Cheers - J.

    Hi,
    i was in contact with BassFan and the reason for the cober not to be shown is in this change:
    https://github.com/MediaPortal/MediaPortal-1/commit/55167ae3b3787a1533117ccc369c65db2de4111a

    Because of the Flickering the window size was set to 1 pixel

    the logic needs to be changed to checkl, if Viz or Cover should be shown.
    something like this:

    if cover is to be shown then
    VizWindow.Size = new Size(_VideoWidth, _VideoHeight);
    else
    VizWindow.Size = new Size(1, 1);

    i am just a few hours away from leaving to my 3 weeks vacation and was just coming back to check a last time the threads.
    Won't have time to fix it now, but will do so, when coming back from vacation in August, if no one else looked into it in the meantime.

    regards,

    Helmut

    Hi,

    Just installed 1.9pre and this issue is not resolved. Exactly the same issues.

    Cheers,
    Colin

    Edit: Sorry, didn't think logs were needed as I reported same issue in original post, with logs. Anyway here they are from a recent open, go to music, play song, go to now playing, press fullscreen, exit. Note that wrong vis is used and no cover art is preset in small preview area in now playing. This used to cycle between vis and cover art as explained earlier. Also wrong vis when I go to full screen.

    Hi,

    Thanks for update. I've used the rabbit hole V1.1 and replaced the MP system files with the ones you attached. Do I need to do anything with the patch?

    These files have improved things slightly, in that when I go to fullscreen vis, it now plays the correct rabbit hole vis. However, I still have nothing displayed in the mini preview window. Neither cover art or vis. Just the generic audio logo. This always used to cycle between vis and cover art. Please could this feature be returned? I have not changed my music collection or ever had each file having an album art. I've only ever had a folder.jpg in each album directory and this has always worked before. The option circled in the screengrab shows that MP should display vis in now playing. This cycled between vis and album art when selected. Its not doing any of these at the moment.

    EDIT: What's interesting is that when I exit now playing and go back into it, the vis appears in the mini preview in now playing. So it seems its an issue when first entering now playing. However it still does not cycle between vis and album art.


    Cheers,
    Colin
