Processing Sketch (standalone application) - Black Screen

Postby GothiCello » Fri Feb 13, 2015 7:20 am

I cannot get the stand-alone app to work once it is unzipped to my local C$ drive (application.windows64.zip). It is a black screen and shows no colors or movement while I have the AUUG setup and working with Reaktor just fine. Clicking "Esc" button doesn't close it. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64 Bit, with latest MS patches. I have the latest updated Java, via http://java.com/en/download/installed8.jsp?detect=jre. ("You have the recommended Java installed (Version 8 Update 31). ")

Does the code need to be in a specific path? Thought I would try to make this work as a user test case before installing the Processing environment. :ugeek:

Sorry it is not working on windows for you. We have not been able to test on windows machines.

I recommend installing processing and opening the .pde file. It is more likely to work that way plus you will be able to create your own standalone very easily via the processing program.

Let us know how you go!

Ok, I ran it from Processing directly and it worked. The code is looking for "Session 1" specifically through rtpMIDI. Although I changed it back to "Session 1" in rtpMIDI, the original exe still didn't work. Later, I'll experiment and compile my own then through Processing. Thanks :ugeek:

Well spotted GothiCello!

The Processing sketch and standalone does indeed have the MIDI Network session 'Session 1' hard-coded, and if users create non-default session names there will be no response from the visual.

We have updated the wiki now to notify the rest of the community about this:

Thanks again for spotting that!!!
