      Installer bug,
      The Universal Binary Installer says: "You cannont install Jitter16 on this volume. MaxMSP 4.6 or greater is required...."
      I have max 4.6.2 and have been using the jitter 1.6.3b2 for quite some time.

      What's the location of your Max folder? Is it /"Applications/MaxMSP 4.6"?

      If you in fact have have Max located in the correct place, as EJ mentioned is required, I would suggest you try installing MaxMSP 4.6.3 (recommended), and let us know if that solves your issues.
      Thank you, Joshua

      Installed with no issues here on 10.4.9 Intel with 4.6.3, just FYI.

      Sorry, been offline for awhile. I thought 4.6.2 was most current. It all works now.

      Thanks. In theory, it should install over 4.6.3, but perhaps something's going wrong. If anyone hasn't installed 4.6.3 on OS X and could verify Christopher's problem ("MaxMSP 4.6 or greater required"), I'd appreciate it.
      Thanks, Joshua

      i'm running 4.6.2 on OSX 10.4.8 on mbp, and this rc1 installed fine. no problems on XP either, running 4.62.
      previous issues with "gl.slab eatin' cpu" seem much better. also, gl.multiple errors are cleared up, as indicated in release notes. built some fairly involved standalones on xp and mac yesterday w/ rc1+4.6.2 and nothing really mysterious popped up yet.
      no news is good news :)

      i'm having a problem with shaders on a 2nd monitor. WinXP SP2 2GB RAM AMD Athlon X2 3800++ XFX Nvidia 6200LE "supporting 512 MB" (if 1GB system Ram installed) nvidia drivers 9.1.4.7 max 4.63 jitter 1.63 rc1
      for example, open the shader-helper for cc.brcosa.jxs make window floating drag to 2nd monitor play a movie
      i just get a black screen
      if i drag the window back to the main monitor, it works fine.
      sadly, I can't say if i was having this problem before. I haven't done any 2nd monitor work on this XP for a while, ever since I downgraded to this 6200 from a 6800GS. Even then, I'm not sure I ever tried shaders on a 2nd monitor.

      also, i just updated my nVidia drivers to the most recent on their site, which the properties panel calls version 6.14.10.9371
    • May 23 2007 | 9:30 am
      i know this problem,its pre-1.63. i have an nvidia 9700 and get the same blank on second monitor, solution for me is to switch from dual view to horizontal span and specify a [rect 1024 0 2048 768] instead of full screen.

      Hello,
      Here is my workaround (Jitter 1.6.3b2) to get shaders working on a second monitor in dualview mode. (will upgrade to 1.6.3 after my tour :))
      I have changed the 3D parameter settings within the Nvidia Control panel to :
      "many graphic card acceleration" : "one display performance" instead of "multi display performance" (I'm not sure about the exact terms in english).
      And select the second monitor as your main windows monitor (within something like "display settings").
      It works, exept that ONLY the main windows monitor got the graphic acceleration, and you have to move the windows task bar to the appropriate place.

      ugh! well, i hope C74 can get this working for 1.63! Josh, lemme know if you want any testing help for this issue.

      Sorry. Not likely that this will be fixed on our end for 1.6.3. I just started what I hoped to be the final build scripts, and this should be the last 1.6.X release, with all further Jitter work this year going towards the version compatible with Max 5.
      Unfortunately, I have never been able to reproduce this issue on either of my NVidia XP machines, which leads me to believe that there's something subtle about the driver settings or HW combination, or ???. There might be other driver settings you can employ to solve this, but I'd be stabbing in the dark speculating on this. Another stab in the dark would be to make sure is that the display is set to millions of colors.
      Here's another suggestion for diagnostic purposes, if you move the window to the other display first, and then start rendering, does it work?
      Here's a hack that has worked for some people: make it so that there's a hair of the window still on the main display.
      Thanks for your feedback.

      Seems like it might be a general driver issue, since I found the following in my online search, and some similar recommendations for other OpenGL based software:
      "Autodesk recommends the use of "Span Mode" for Dual Monitor configurations using Nvidia cards."
      To the general list, a few questions:
      1. Anyone else have similar setup to Peter and *not* having issues with shaders on a second display? Any monitor/driver settings you think might be relevant?
      2. Anyone experiencing this problem on similar HW running Vista?
      Thanks, Joshua

      No, we have the same problems as Peter. Using PC with a 7950 GX2 graphics card.

      This worked for us.

      "Here's another suggestion for diagnostic purposes, if you move the window to the other display first, and then start rendering, does it work?"
      no. i'll give these other things a try and see what happens.
    • May 23 2007 | 8:00 pm
      ok, the "leave a hair on the main monitor" method works (is the "clarence thomas" method? yeah, I know, I'm bad...) without any drastic change in performance, it seems. whew!

That didn't work for me, unfortunately - the second the window is moved completely on to the second display the rendering stops.

Funny thing is that it hasn't always been a problem. I am not at all sure why, but I had it working for a long time on the Jitter beta.

Unfortunately this means that I get broken frame-grabs when grabbing the openGL window to disk (with Fraps). In other words I think I have to try to find a way to fix this, since I use Fraps grabs religiously.
