Hey all, I actually don't own this program yet, I'm hoping to buy my copy in the next few months. The thing I had noticed was that the GUI normally looks a little plain.
The reason this is, is because r8brain / r8brain PRO do not use WinXP styles. You can create a file called r8brainpro.exe.manifest and put it in the same directory as the program with the following contents...
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
This will enable Windows XP themes, the program looks a lot nicer like this. Also, a little note to Aleksey, it might not be a bad idea to switch from Courier New font for the file list, to something like Arial, Vernada or Tahoma. Also, this manifest file can actually be compiled into the exe itself if you add it as a resource in the r8brain project. This will mean the manifest file will not be required.
Just a little something I thought I'd share :D
Ahh, this sounds good Aleksey. I am running Vista RC2 right here and I don't believe that supports scaling either.
Thanks for your help :D
Skins and colour themes are the last thing a VST needs. Either put all your effort into making 1 good, usable skin or let XP/Vista theme it.
I think Vista is hardware rendered, so it does support upscaling
I'm thinking of investing in R8Brain Pro at some stage. I was wondering if you have an idea as to when the version with the new GUI might become available please?
