Text (EX9) Not Working

Hello. I’m having this problem,

the Text (EX9) it’s not working. I’ve tried reinstalling VVVV and reinstalling the Gui plugins, but still doesnt work.

This is how the help patch looks(attachment):

I’ve also tried changing all the values in Text (EX9), but nothing changes. Not even the BG color.

Text (EX9) help-DirectX Renderer_2009.05.31-04.34.33.jpg (3.0 kB)

Correction: The background color DOES change, but not the Text (EX9) values.

Have you installed the SlimDX End User Runtime (March 2009 SP1)?

great, that was the problem, no bug. thank you

hi,

Before formatting my system i had
Windows XP sp2
directx 9.0c
last slim dx
net framework 2.0
and text (EX9) worked

Now i have
Windows XP sp3
directx 9.0c
last slim dx (tried with and without)
net framework 2.0 (tried with and without)
and text (EX9) doesn’t work

Any idea?

hi,
i used to have this kind of problem with text(ex9)

to fix it i removed all the subfolders in the plugin directory
except the licences one…

hope it helps

charles

already done :-(
i do see the text(EX9) node but it does not work…

if the plugin turns up in vvvv i suspect a wrong slimdx version. are you sure you installed the latest one ?

In some of my windows installations I have weird plugin issues.
eg some plugins load but give no output, in my case particles, others simply don’t appear if you try and create them, still others don;t appear in the list.
.net2 (and 3 in one case) slimdx all installed…
Others, they work fine, and I have no idea why!
A while ago I posted about a clean install in which none worked, there are some issues with plugins but I haven’t got a clue why they should work on some pc’s and not on others…

as an example structure synth doesn’t appear in the node list, and timeliner (beta8) give this on this laptop

thank you

hi,
i have encountered a problem with the Text node, and can not resolve it.

i’ve tried the patch from this thread. Renderer (TTY) only complains about “couldn’t connect pins of nodes :PLUGINS:\DrawText.dll|VVVV.Nodes.DrawText and Renderer (EX9)”, which makes sense if you look at the image and see what the Text node looks like, to me:

the weird thing is that it worked perfectly, and i can’t think of anything that could have broken it.

things i have tried:

  • reinstalling SlimDX feb2010, jun2010 and aug2009
  • installing the latest graphics drivers
  • reinstalling the node from the addonpack
  • reinstalling the node from an old install of beta22, where the Text node still looks normal (all pins there), but does not work, either (?!)
    update: i tried replacing _PluginInterfaces.dll and _Utils.dll with the ones in the addonpack, and it worked!

i’m compiling from source right now, but if that fails, i’m out of ideas for what to try next :?

dEp from your answer it is not clear to me if you still have troubles…
