Is anybody else getting what looks like Arabic language when launching the installer? I don't want to click on any buttons because I have no idea what they mean.

Several other audio extraction tools I used to rely upon failed on me, but this one worked great. I got exactly the format I was hoping for (Opus) and it downloaded very fast. Wonderfully simple and easy.

Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.

@loin2kolpotoru: Any reference for this? The official website and a couple of places I search seems to indicate that it still supports WinXP.

loin2kolpotoru on 2023-07-09 14:58

I have personally tried to install latest version of PotPlayer on xp but it displayed error message PotPlayer only supports vista or later os.

Plus here we can see what is the last xp supported version -

The update to 1.4.0.0 applies only for the x86-version - interestingly the x64-version remains at 1.3.0.0 (last update 06.12.2016!)

@zorro - Looks like the Wavosaur team updated the x64 version after you mentioned it :)

Great software! The real time effects support is what sets it apart from Audacity. I wish it was open source though...

Yes, it's portable, but it's only the classic 32-bit version. Nice find and let's hope they'll let the link up once they see it getting many hits.

hamasaki on 2020-05-03 20:56

{userappdata}\BearWare.dk folder doesn't exist, the files are in the root of the extraction with a .default extension. They just need renaming. So, info here out of date.

hamasaki on 2020-05-03 21:01

Sorry, forgot to say, in the {app} folder, not the root.

What's new?
  • Dropped support for old GNU/Linux distributions.
  • All processor architectures are supported again.
  • Added detection for all draw conditions:
  • threefold repetition
  • insufficient material
  • fifty-move rule
  • stalemate was already detected
  • Added undo and redo.
  • Added options to change piece colors.
  • Added an option to make knights face sideways.
  • Added support for the XBoard protocol commands "?", "undo" and "remove".
  • Now changed settings are applied instantly even when the engine is thinking.
  • Now the status labels indicate if the game has ended and the reason, if any.
  • Now the engine can use results from partial searches.
  • Significantly improved engine performance.
  • Improved exit time when the engine is thinking.
  • Added repaints to fix some cases where nothing seems to happen until you move the mouse.
  • In XBoard mode, now Project Invincible stops thinking when it receives the command "new", "force", "white", "black" or "result".
  • Improved responsiveness in XBoard mode when a process with higher priority has high CPU usage.
  • When the engine finds that it can be mated no matter what, now it makes the move that leads to the slowest mate. Previously it made a random legal move.
  • Improved startup time in XBoard mode.
  • In XBoard mode, now Project Invincible rejects clearly invalid positions.
  • Fixed a deadlock when changing the number of threads when the engine is thinking.
  • Fixed: the process didn't terminate if you attempted to exit the game when the game showed a dialog that asked something.
  • Fixed an use-after-free on exit if a dialog that asks something has been shown.
  • Fixed theoretical race conditions.
  • Fixed minor memory leaks.
  • Windows: fixed crash on exit with QeffectsGL.
  • Unix: fixed an error message on exit with the closed source "fglrx" AMD graphics drivers.
  • Unix: improved performance by enabling more compiler optimizations.
  • Unix: made the binary smaller by stripping information that you don't need to run Project Invincible.
  • Unix: when Project Invincible is installed, now it stores its settings in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME or $HOME/.config as required by the XDG Base Directory Specification.
  • Minor changes.
