Hello guys, I have come here to tell you that the guest has uploaded many Starshatter Mods on spacesimcentral.com and I failed to download the mod. Also the picture is needed so we can see if the mods are pretty good or not. And guest cannot upload mods to that site too! Is there any more mods for downloading from the Spacesimcentral? Thank you.

Re: Starshatter Downloads Page
I'd like to go ahead and remove the new starshatter exe from fsmods. It seems like the google code page will probably have the latest and greatest.

Acceptable?

Re: Starshatter Downloads Page
Perhaps you could link the FS Mods page to the Google Code page? This would keep everything, or links to everything, in one conveniant location.

Please ensure that you have the latest DirectX installed on your PC. A quick Google search should find it on the Microsoft website.
I think there's a command you can type into the "Start" -> "Run" box called 'dxdiag' that will bring up details of any DirectX installed.

In case you didn't catch on from Echelon's reply, if a program ever complains about missing d3d9 or d3dx9 or anything like that - your direct X is out of date.

Re: Starshatter Downloads Page
Hi there... late to the party but I thought I would give this a try. A couple questions.

First does anyone know how to "Disable Desktop Composition" under Windows 8

Second I am not sure about this "New Starshatter Executable" as to if it is still needed.

Thanks

Not sure if it's needed with the new exec, but if it is, Google is your friend:

https://www.google.com/search?q=disable+desktop+composition+for+a+program+in+windows+8

First three results:

Microsoft says that DWM is always on in Windows 8 but that's not true. WinPE4 (tiny Windows 8) has no DWM. Actually, DWM is on because of Metro so if you disable DWM the Start Screen will turn black and you can't see anything. Winlogon.exe spawns a new DWM.exe process so if you kill DWM.exe it restarts.

Solution?

Use PSSuspend.exe or Process Explorer from sysinterals.com
Follow the command line instructions for PSSuspend
If you're using GUI Process Explorer than right click on the winlogon.exe process and click Suspend. Then, kill DWM.exe.

This is to disable desktop composition in windows 8 and 8.1.

This does not apply to:
Fullscreen users (not windowed borderless)
Other operating systems (Desktop composition is a lot easier to disable in other operating systems)

Use Process Explorer and run it as Administrator

Do the following steps in order:

KILL explorer.exe

SUSPEND winlogon.exe
[This is so you can do the next step without it re-opening automatically]

KILL dwm.exe
[This is what you don't want to be running, it's the desktop windows manager and has desktop composition. this gets in the way]

RUN explorer.exe
[File > Run... in Process Explorer, allows opengl to be used and basic OS navigations excluding metro start menu]

RESUME winlogon.exe when you want dwm.exe back (or restart)
[You may have to kill explorer again and suspend winlogon.exe again to get it to be resumeable]

The benefit to doing this is a dramatic reduction in cursor latency.
The downfall is the start menu goes to black and can't be used at all.

This has actually become very safe and easier to do. Now I really do recommend it to anyone on Windows 8 / 8.1

A humble animator reaches out to XDA..

Switching to Windows 8 destroys the ability to use one of the most streamlined and dynamic animation programs ever made.
Macromedia's Flash MX ( Version 6 ) Why this version? It's the version before Adobe bought it, and messed with the brush engine. Pressure
sensitive brush lines are amazing, sharp, and precise compared to later Adobe versions. Many cartoonists prefer drawing in it.

Flash's vector engine clashes with Windows "glass" and DWM composition though. The program works fine, but in Windows 7, one must
disable desktop composition in compatibility settings, or navigating through to edit a symbol is incredibly slowed down. ( by about 500%! )

So, in switching to Windows 8, disabling DWM is not possible any longer, and thus - working in Flash 6 is broken forever.

Has anyone managed to turn off DWM in Win 8 through any kind of hack, or using old DWM code?
Help! Flash isn't the only app affected by this!

BTW, you will have to replace dwm.exe before rebooting or logging off, or you will have bricked your installation
Don't run explorer, or else bad things will happen. Ex7 for windows 8 will work fine.

Wow! This does in fact work.. without rebooting.
That last step of deleting / moving dwm.exe not necessary.

I used process explorer to:
open cmd.exe
kill explorer.exe
SUSPEND winlogon.exe
kill dwm.exe
in cmd: run flash.exe

when done: unsuspend winlogon.exe - everything returns to normal.

Now if I can only automate this. Hmm.. maybe I can try and whip something up in autoit or autohotkey so that this can all be done on the fly for any
particular app..

Thanks!

Bad things might happen if you leave winlogon suspended for too long, that's why the move dwm step exists

 
Re: Starshatter Downloads Page
So. I'm running WinXP SP3 and I'm having an issue. I followed the instructions, but I keep getting an error. I'm missing d3dx_43.dll. Any suggestions on what I should do?

Re: Starshatter Downloads Page
Find an old direct x redistributable package and install it  -  to save download size, newer versions of direct x didn't have all of the old. Dll files.

Try 8.1 iirc,  and  9.0c
Or  (better idea)  Google which direct x package you will need to install to get that file.

Re: Starshatter Downloads Page
Just tested all 3 files in the OP; all come back clean -- so the corruption was during download; try re-downloading, and, if it's still corrupting, try using a download manager like Free Download Manager and see if that helps (that's what I use).
