Fffh, so we finished our project on Chaotic Audio Synthesis, and the application itself turned out pretty fucking nice. Not only is it really fun to play around with, but it actually turns out sounds that aren’t too bad. Chaotic, but not that bad.
The real problem was giving the presentation (still sitting watching other people present their projects right now). I don’t fucking know what happened, but I couldn’t get the application to run on the projector. All the builds I did were hardcoded to 1280×800 fullscreen, and for some reason I couldn’t get my fucking computer to mirror the desktop on both video devices (laptop LCD and the projector).
So I quickly apologize to the audience and do a build with 800×600 windowed resolution, run it, and drag the window to the other monitor. Which worked. The problem was, for some fucking arbitrary reason the GUI decided to kill itself in that configuration. I have no idea why, probably something weird and arbitrary (it works fine on my machine now).
Despite our fucking fail presentation skills, I think everyone was fairly impressed with our application. It’s a fucking awesome thing, makes pretty pictures and not too bad randomly-generated “music”. I’ll package it up in a couple of days (going to hack the config file to include resolution information) and post it here, but for now just pictures.
