Quote from: тғc on August 10, 2019, 05:48:41 PMUnfortunately for me it seems like MaXHUD thinks I'm running a higher resolution than I am. Half of it is off the screen and the rumble doesn't work.
Hi all,

yes an update is needed as PiBoSo has done a change in MXB that impcts the screen coordinates.
Sorry I'm a bit late on this: holidays + I no longer receive notifications from PiBoSo forums.

And my adsl box at home has been fried by a storm so it may take another week or two.

Alternative (but annoying) solution: manually editing the MaxHUD.ini file you can see the X and Y position of each widget.

Quote from: PizzaChet on July 25, 2019, 05:16:57 PMOh man! Thanks! Where do find this? Is there a readme I didn't read?
I think there's a readme.txt file somewhere in the installtion folder.
The only other shortcuts I recall are Ctrl-F (for an FPS counter), F12 (or F11) for a screenshot and F11 (or F12) for an high-res screenshot.
There may be others (inclufing one to show/hide the dash, probably).

Ctrl-V :)

Quote from: PiBoSo on July 17, 2019, 12:43:58 PMThe code has been changed to support user interfaces with aspect ratio other than the 4:3 one.
It was then possible to edit the user interface to use the 16:9 ratio.
However, the user interface doesn't dynamically adapt to the screen ratio.
Thanks ! But what happens then if you run on a 4:3 screen ?

Quote from: PiBoSo on July 17, 2019, 12:43:58 PMCould it be useful for plugins to receive the screen ratio as a parameter?
I'd say yes. At the moment I try to figure it out getting the screen resolution with windows functions (which likely is not the right way all the time).

Even better would probably be if you could provide a couple of functions to map x and y coords from the "UI" space (0..1, but not necessarily covering the whole screen) to the whole screen and viceversa.

No big deal anyway.

@PiBoSo: I guess the below made it into MXB beta 11/11b, right ?

Quote* GPB / WRS / KRP / MXB: added support for widescreen user interface

I had some magic in my plugins to map your 0.0-1.0 X coord to full screen width and I was hoping your change would allow me to get rid of that.
But if I just use (0.0, 0.0) for a quad position, it doesn't go to top-left corner of the screen (y is OK, X is off, not fully left).

I have a 21:9 screen if that matters.

What did change exactly ?

General Discussion / Re: Binaural Audio?
December 02, 2018, 04:13:45 PM
As far as I know, it's already in MXB. MXB (and GPB, KRP, WRS) all have openAL that renders the sound in the 3d space according to the position of each sound source and the position/orientation of the "ears".

Side note: if you have a system that does its own virtualization (e.g. someting like the Sennheiser GSX 1000, or headphones with their USB thingy) then that's not optiomal: MXB will see what windows say, typically that you have a 5.1 or 7.1 system, even when headphones are connected. So MXB will output sound accordingly and your device will "transform the 5/7.1 sound to headphone stereo (binaural). In general, the Sennheiser stuff does a good job, but the whole path is a bit useless, it would be better top MXB to output directly to the headphones.

Creative soundcard may be a little better, as they provide their own implementation of openAL and may take advantage of that (but to be honest, I'm not 100% sure they avoid the 5.1 -> headphones conversion step).

A while ago I did some test using OpenALSoft: it's a (free) software implementation of openAL that also allow to use differet HRTF. it worked fine after some tweaking, out of memory you have to drop the openALsoft dll and some config files in the right place and then you're set.

I have both a creative soundcard and the Sennheiser GSX 1200 pro :)

Another quirk I just noticed: in MXB m_iSessionNumLaps in SPluginsRaceSession_t dopesn't seem to be set, it's always zero.
Seems to work fine in GPB however.

Thanks MaX..

I'm sure enough people use this it's a shame not many have replied and thanked.
Thanks !

I'm a lazy dog myself so I can't complain :)

One bug I noticed in this latest build - Not sure if it's MXB or MaX hud - If you're riding with rumble on and the session ends taking you to the pit, the rumble doesn't stop and just runs continuously.
Hmm that definitely shouldn't happen, I'll have look.

Temporary workarounds (bad ones, I know): go to track again and it should  stop, or use the .exe that comes with the plugin to stop the rumble (it's included in case MXB crashes while rumbling, happened to me once with GPB and only solution was reboot, hence the .exe).
