Hi
it is here
it always try Borderless irrespective of what I set in .ini or command line
I have a feeling it always set Borderless here
FullScreen := ReadArrayIndex(IFullScreen, IniFile, 'Graphics', 'FullScreen', IGNORE_INDEX, 'Borderless');
s09bQ5
@s09bQ5
@djstkg, and you are changing the settings in /home/pi/.ultrastardx/config.ini? It defaults to Borderless if no ini can be found and then creates an ini with that setting where it expects the file to be.
djstkg
@djstkg
tried both. .ini and from command line. for some reason, file gets overwritten with default setting. it actually writes new file on top of the old one, as if it werent there. file ownership is ok, and i had to set permissions to write-only so it doesnt get overwritten.
this u can see here: https://pastebin.pl/view/0291098c
ERROR: Config-file is read-only [TIni.Save]
djstkg
@djstkg
Actually, there are 2 problems:
1) It defaults to Borderless, with no apparent reason
2) Once it defaults to Borderless, it fails to create window without explanation
s09bQ5
@s09bQ5
@djstkg, for 1 please run ultrastardx in strace and provide the log
For 2 you can try to extend the 'Creating window failed' message with a + SDL_GetError()
s09bQ5
@s09bQ5
You also still haven't told us about the environment you are trying to run ultrastardx in. Is it X11, Wayland, or something else?
djstkg
@djstkg
Oh, sorry. It is xserver
Jup. Just thought of doing GetError. Actually, on it already.
Not familiar with strace. Will have to take a look

@s09bQ5
@djstkg which Linux distribution are you using? Download Link? Did you compile any packages (Xorg, Mesa, ...) yourself?
I think you might be using the closed source Mali driver. On https://wiki.debian.org/MaliGraphics it says "ARM dropped support for X in their releases after r16 (Jan 2017)."

Hey all! Is anybody in touch with the admins of usdb.animux.de?

The fact that duet tags have never been supported have been a pain in the butt for many, but now increasingly songs with rap notes („R“) are being uploaded and the upload code simply throws out the respective lines which effectively renders the song file to be unusable.

I would assume that this requires only minor changes to the upload (PHP?) code to support duets and rap notes, but I was unable to reach any one of the admins directly.

Any help/suggestions appreciated.

Hi, I'd like to change the text color of the lyrics (line 1 + 2) for Single player and 2 Player duet...which would be the correct line I'd have to edit in the theme ini file? :)
s09bQ5
@s09bQ5
@DasDeX sorry, but so far these color values are hardcoded in the source code (src/base/UThemes.pas)
basisbit
@basisbit
actually they are not hard coded.
I think they are the player 1 and player 2 colors
let me verify that quickly
basisbit
@basisbit
@DasDeX for single player mode, you can set the color in Jukebox options. For the colors of Duet songs it will instead just use the user colors of the first and second player.
DasDeX
@DasDeX
Great, thank you very much! :)

Hi, I was wondering if I can buy a Behringer Qx1202USB and if Ultrastar will be able to recognize the interfaz as 8 differents microphones (in case I connect 8 of it) 4 as XLR and 2 as ¼ plug ?
s09bQ5
@s09bQ5
@LittleTale, I doubt it. To me it looks like the QX1202USB mixes all channels into a stereo signal before it hits the ADC.
LittleTale
@LittleTale
I have a friend play music and record with Reaper, he can select all 6 channels as separated chanel with the QX1202USB the software create soundcard for each input. Only dont know if Ultrastar will recognize it like that too . . .

Hi does anyone know why there is a delay when using microphone while singing in the game, I'll sing but then it'll sound a couple seconds after

Hey y’all.

I know this has been discussed several times before…

In a line of lyrics, does a space between two words belong at the end of the first word or before the second word? If it is after, should the last syllable in the line end with a space or not?

I remember that I had this discussion with brunzel years ago and the consensus was that they go BEFORE the next syllable (which sounds counterintuitive now…). That’s why the corresponding task in UltraStar Manager shifted spaces from the end of one syllable to the beginning of the next syllable.

Now from what I remember discussing with @basisbit, it is the other way round (which to me makes more sense, as the start of a note/syllable should start with the syllable and not with its leading space, otherwise the highlighting and the scoring will be slightly wrong) and I changed the task in UltraStar Manager to carry out the opposite, that is to shift spaces in front of syllables to the end of the previous syllable.

So far so good. Now I was wondering how USDX (and Play, for that matter) handles the fact that songs of both types are out there? Wouldn’t songs with spaces in front of syllables be slightly off and should that be compensated in the timing (or better: corrected, at least when editing and saving the song)?

basisbit
@basisbit
@bohning spaces are not read/sung by people, thus it doesn't really matter regarding the syllable start/end timing. Imho this is just a question of what you are used to. The biggest public continuous song creation community afaik is MyLittleKaraoke, and they use spaces at the beginning of the word. Space after the word feels more "natural"/expected, but space at the beginning usually is easier to see in text input fields
Would be nice if all the usual tools just use one standard, so yes, it would be good to check what USDX and US Play song editors do.
I might be able to help there this weekend.
@mrodrig19 USDX itself does not really support playing the microphone input, because of the high latency which is caused by the game waiting for a quarter of a song beat for some audio data to be collected for pitch analysis, and only then continues doing other stuff with that audio data (like playback). So instead, you best use the microphone playback feature of your soundcard/microphone.
basisbit
@basisbit
@LittleTale you'll probably just have to get the device, test it yourself with the current version of UltraStar Deluxe and then hope for the best - if it doesn't work, send back the hardware. We have no such hardware and thus can't test how it behaves and how well it is supported by your operating system or portaudio.
Markus Böhning
@bohning
@basisbit yes, of course spaces are not sung, but that’s not what I meant. I mean the timing of the lyric helper/highlighting of the currently syllable. Say you have a space in front, but the timing for the syllable is of course whenever the word starts, but not when the space before the word starts (not sure if is clear what I mean). Let me know if I should eloborate further
basisbit
@basisbit
sure, the space will be part of the "syllable". Whoever creates the song will put the syllable start at the beginning of the sung part and it should end when the syllable ends. the space should not make any difference for that. I doubt it makes a difference
the highlighting being 2 pixel early/late won't really matter for those who sing the song. Within the syllable, the progress is only a rough relative estimate of how much time of the syllable has already passed anyways

Does anyone know how the Spanish version of UltraStar Worldparty solved the task of singing against each other online?

The other day, I had a zoom call with a friend (who is not experienced with UltraStar, but enjoys singing) and she proposed to sing karaoke together via zoom. So I shared my UltraStar screen, she took her smartphone to look up the lyrics and we sang together (sound went via my microphone via zoom to her speakers, but obviously my screen much so much delayed that she read the lyrics from her smartphone). All in all not very satisfactory, but as a first start, we did have much fun.

I know this „online singing challenge“ has been discussed many times and that the exchange of songs is more or less the (legal) problem. So far I did not have the use case for it, because I enjoyed having my friends over in person, but with the Corona pandemic still around for a while, my interest in online competition/singing together is rising….

@s09bQ5
@bohning, are you sure it can do that? In their master branch it looks like they just support uploading of scores using a separate DLL like we do.
Markus Böhning
@bohning
@s09bQ5 not entirely sure, maybe I’m wrong. I thought that was the „big thing“ in UltraStar Worldparty. I will investigate further and see what I can find
Markus Böhning
@bohning
@s09bQ5 I guess you are right. I just installed the world party mod in my virtual machine (I’m on Mac, no Mac version of world party) and it looks like it’s not possible to (concurrently) sing against each other online.
s09bQ5
@s09bQ5
I think a good way to implement playing online is to connect USDX to Jitsi Meet. They perform the audio mixing inside the clients so that we would have one incoming audio stream per participant. The information to synchronize audio and video is transmitted as well, although some browsers have problems to render it correctly (google LipSyncHack). If only they had proper protocol documentation or a library for *nix/Windows...
Markus Böhning
@bohning
that sounds quite interesting!
