This looks awesome! I'd love to try it, but I'm a bit weary of installing stuff like this. Nothing against it, but I don't usually like installing software that is still in development. Could you offer a zip file for download? I'd love to try it!

Thank you all for your positive comments!! Heart-warming!

I'll be posting a short feature list and "how-to" soon. This is probably a good idea seeing that the UI is not your regular Windows UI ;)

@TechnoBulldog: MMiX.Me currently is only distributed as an installer, sorry. I understand you want to minimize any risks you might be taking from installing buggy software 8) I think the current setup requires the Media Player to be installed rather than just unpacked somewhere, I don't think that will work. Please check back later to see how the development is going, and maybe you'll find it trustworthy enough :)

Good. However I cannot run the program after the installation. The shortcut fails as well as the program.

Hello jamesbear,

Thanks for reporting this error!

What system are you running, and what kind of error messages (if any) are you getting? The minimum system requirement is Windows XP, SP2.

I just bumped into this thanks to the news. Nice! It's coverflow on steroids!
It might also be cool to have this as a plugin for various music players like amaroK, so you can integrate it with your existing music collection.

Thanks duststorm for your thoughts! Always appreciated :)

So, a few releases have passed, more or less under the radar.
Focusing on stability, and with a few graphics layout changes,
we are proud to announce MMiX.Me version 0.1.5!

Questions to the community:
  • How do you imagine a media player with a 3D interface working?
  • What feature/usability/idea would you like/expect to have?
  • Changes we should do to MMiX.Me?
  • Finally, on redistributing DirectX as MMiX.Me currently does, do you consider this important/necessary for a generic 3D app?
Thanks for all feedback and support :)

Beautiful ! Great job on the 0.2 release! I love the browsing feature :D

Also, since you're using FMOD, this will be extremely easy to implement and it would look extremely awesome - analyze the spectrum and do something cool with it. Maybe add bloom and modify it's intensity by the beat, or add a bouncing line in the background, or something within those lines. IMO it's essential for a 3D music player.

Thanks Mind Calamity!

YES!! Way back in the days (ie., when MMiX.Me was pre-Ogre :!:) we DID have a 3D equalizer. About time we dusted off that old code 8)
