A little bit of important info

This wallpaper is just an experimental project that I updated for the first time in years. It still definitely has bugs, and if I have free time I might expand on this technology in the future.


Here's some advice from me if you're looking to download this wallpaper

• If it's not doing anything, make sure you're playing music using a different application. This wallpaper doesn't make any noise, it just listens to it. If you're playing something and it still isn't working, make sure it's playing on your default audio output device and restart the wallpaper. If none of that works, navigate to "[AppData]LocalLow\Technoguyfication\Techno's Wallpapers Genesis" and open "output_log.txt". This will tell you the audio device that the wallpaper is listening on.

• Refrain from unplugging your audio devices or otherwise switching them around when the wallpaper is running. This will cause it to hard crash and you'll have to restart the wallpaper. This is an internal engine bug that has to do with the library I'm using to capture audio data. I'm experimenting with alternative libraries to fix this issue.

• Changing the sensitivity causes the spectrum to "flicker" for some reason. No clue why this is happening. I'll maybe try and fix it.

• I know you can't type into the Frequency Range boxes right now. To fix this, right click on the wallpaper from inside Wallpaper Engine, click "Open in Explorer", and launch "Techno's Wallpapers Genesis.exe" and play it. You can change the values there and they'll persist when you close it.

It's definitely not a virus, run it in a sandbox with a memory watcher and see for yourself.

is there a way to move the settings windows so that my icons arent in the way?
Technoguyfication  [author] Apr 12, 2018 @ 6:39pm 
Yeah, that's a known bug. Unfortunately it's an issue with the library and I don't have the time or (currently) the knowledge to fix it myself. I've talked with the developer of the library causing the issue and it was inconclusive. I'm keeping an eye out for a remedy in the meantime.

Crashes if you switch audio profiles in Windows.
