Tried to run the DirectX patch, no luck.


Should have been written for the Mac. That way it would actually work.

I'm running XP sp3.

I'm trying to get the 1.02c version to run on my computer, I kept getting this error "missing D3DX9_32.DLL", so afte reading here

downloading the below now.

The December 2006 SDK includes D3DX9_32.DLL. This DLL includes the Direct3D 10 HLSL compiler enabled for Direct3D 9 targets (shader models 2.0 and later). The new compiler has no support for 1.x pixel shader targets. This new compiler is the default for Direct3D 9. As a result, all developers are encouraged to author their shaders in HLSL and use shader models 2.0 and higher. The legacy compiler is available using the /LD switch.

UPDATE!

The above works, and I'm doing this on my iMac27" under VMWARE emulation running WinXP!

I'm using it for my front height speakers now......

Got the app running on XP. biggrin.gif

Does each cube represent 1 square foot? it appears that it does, but I entered the height of my front L/R at 36in from ground (plus speaker height 10") and it graphs them at about 30 - 40" in height from ground against the front wall - according to the cubed grid. I would think the L/R's would show 36-46" precisely against the front wall grid

My room height is 6.5ft.....not sure if that's throwing it off a little.

Just want to be sure that the height of the refection points on the side walls are an accurate representation. Thanks

Download in post #246 works. Getting it to actually run is entirely a different matter.


Edit: I also installed the Direct-X package mentioned up a few posts on Windows 7 x64, and now the app launches.

Great Program

I got the .rar file to open using Unpacker (found in Windows store as a freebie) in Windows 8.1. File still works fine using inches and feet as units of measure. Superimposed grids on walls, ceiling and floor assumed as one square foot in order to better locate your reflection points. Now on to the mid to high frequency trap builds. Good program...Very easy to use and understand. Side note: I always knew the reflection points described by this program would be problematic in my home theater: Now with this program I can visually see their locations - given my input data - to better deal with them using DIY acoustical traps. Thank you!!
