As you can see through old posts/comments of me below, I already mentioned what you're asking from. What you can try is Rainmeter visualizers (which I recommend, an example can be seen here: https://twitter.com/Wesley1000070/status/1028681076590477312 ) and/or changing the audio volume in the general Wallpaper Engine settings.

If done correctly it should look like in the second YouTube video (with the song).

Hi, this wallpaper it's amazing, but ¿Could you please add a Audio Responsiveness Bar? With full volume there is barely any effect. Sorry for bothering, i would do it myself but i can't access the scene files so i have to ask

Also: thank you all for the support and kind words! Make sure to check out the work of AxiomDesign on e.g. Instagram.

Sidenote: Wallpaper Engine gives the option to use one wallpaper scene for two (or more) monitors at the same time (streched). What you could try (depending on your personal setup) is to use the 4K Version of RetroLake and use it for e.g. 2x FullHD monitors. The results can vary though so keep that in mind.

While Wallpaper Engine itself does not support something like this, I could actually release an mirrored version of RetroLake. First I thought the idea might not turn out that good, but it could work fine enough for multiple monitor setup.

I might do an WQHD Mirror version of RetroLake (adding more options for resolution and layout in one step) in the future, thank you for your input :104::eaglegrin:

Love this wall paper! I was wondering if there was a way for this to have a flip option or a seperate flipped file. I thought it would be pretty neat to kind of do that with a dual monitor setup.

The audio responsive effect can be indeed subtle which is intended. The lines on the mountain get highlighted, depending on the sound levels. While the example song (the second YouTube video) shows what RetroLake is supposed to look like in the end things like monitor settings and knowing what is supposed to highlight can change the observations.

Also keep in mind that you can increase the audio volume in Wallpaper Engine's settings to a maximum of 200, which can help. If you don't like the audio responsive part you could of course always turn it off or change the audio volume to e.g. 50.

Audio Responsive on this doesn't really seem to work.
