Developed: since August of 2008
Summary: Windows effects engine and customization tool. It offers various visual windows effects for such events like minimize, moving window and other.
Description: Adds eye-candy effects to windows (and start menu) like deformations (e.g: jelly windows - that makes moved window wiggle like being made from jelly; or fold - which hides windows by folding up horizontally, and unfolds when showing), physics (e.g.: keep momentum - making window to conserve move momentum; or bounce - that makes windows bounce upon receving focus ) and other SFX (e.g.: pixie dust - which makes moved window to leave a trail of twinkling pixie dust; or close puff - which displays puff cloud below cursor when closing window).

List of features

NOTE: there is online help available here

If by "eat" You mean memory usage, then it depends what would You classify as "a lot"
and secondly what allocation aspects You are taking under consideration when measuring it :)

P.s.: Oh and those can be faked :meow:

Everything should - except for effects requiring thumbnails support (transitions could be working - if secondary thumbnail service mode was not voted out).

Most likely Your IP was in banned range, nevertheless ban was outvoted - You should be able to open it without problems.

On version - depends on installed operational system (x64 or x86).

Ban was lifted, so if it was a case - any IP should be fine now.

Will try to, but first I need to know if "nv_x86.exe" (x86 bridge for x64) is present when You launch x64 version and from what location (e.g. Program Files - and doesn't have to be exact coordinates)

If by following question You mean: does it use documented Microsoft DWM API - yes, and no it does not use undocumented API of User32.dll as well as Microsoft DirectX API proxies [hooks] for obtaining surfaces.

Secondly, upcoming version will be faster and with fixes to on creation etc. effects (Microsoft Windows 8 still is not fully supported)

Kindest regards,
Sami

Re-download updated Nimi Visuals package and try again.

Explanation:
Package distributed via official website is SFX archive. As new Nimi Visuals was expected to be released in April (yes there is a delay) it was decided not to update SFX extractor to newest (with fixed extraction bug that some Users experienced) alone. Nevertheless, considering that new version of Nimi Visuals won't be (unless some technical implementation boost) released in next 2 weeks - today SFX extractor was updated alone overall.

White page with "Not found" :rofl:

Man, I just want a link to a zip, thats all. No sessions, no idīs, no tickets.
Reply
:iconsamiwieciekto:
samiwieciekto Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012
Seems that that ticket was set as an expired when download system went available again after update. (download Nimi Visuals)

Regarding Your request on distribution as plain zip archive - Nimi Visuals is officially distributed in SFX package, not in any other way/format.

Also speaking privately - when complaining on lack of direct download, consider that bandwidth ain't free and direct download was abused in past. Maybe current is not perfect solution, but every has some drawback.

In order:

  1. First of all - Nimi website.

  2. Multiple reasons.

  3. No it's not - however, if there is one person that consider it as such, it's enough to have that overlooked.

  4. No idea what You mean, but from sounds of it I guess answer is no?

  5. 2 days ago download script got quick fix to work during migration to new download system - most likely something went wrong in the middle of the process. On bright side - new system will be available later today, and it's way better than current one from what I've seen.
    • There are trade off's between performance, privacy and security. I can only say that as far as I know new script brings some improvements on that field.

    • Taste issue - some prefer such, some don't. I agree that it might require a second or two to get used to, but in matter of ergonomics it's positive - as there is single static navigation bar. Although I agree, that noticeability could be improved, like by few tweaks, but that would have to be voted over (as background: last year NV had same menu, NP still has - NWC other hand brought few changes to those)



Oh and as cheer up - soon as page update rolls out, and new NP released - NV will get new components.

Best regards,
Sami

Sad to hear that - however, it is not non-Nimi-side related issue. For resolve please follow Your operational system documentation.

My private suggestion is that You might want to check links below for issue origin understanding:

Thanks for the suggestions

I removed .Net Framework with the cleanup tool

And reinstalled it though windows updates but to no Advil

I get this error when it tries to run nv_x86.dll but i'm on x64 though
Reply
:iconsamiwieciekto:
samiwieciekto Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2011
nv_x86.dll You say - then that's actually what has to be checked, as there shouldn't be any errors displayed and fallback to passive event detection instead. (not to count that there shouldn't be need to in the first place)

As resolve for now You can check how to forcibly enable passive event detection (assuming it didn't automatically enable), while we will check this issue.

"Soft-window"? Could You name the effect according to [link] ?

Besides, if this will help - there will be projects updates released around end of November. (including Nimi Visuals)

hmm will try to fix that, but could You check whether:
:bulletpink:is NV running in emergency mode?
:bulletblue:does other effects work?
:bulletpink:is NV running as x32 or x64 (if You are using x64 system version)
:bulletblue:does Your system support Microsoft DWM Thumbnails (or simply asking can You see window thumbnails when hovering over taskbar task etc.)
also does effect doesn't work at all - or there any symptoms it does something (blinking, disappearing windows etc.)
