Download djDecks DX beta
djDecks DX is a version of djDecks that makes use of DirectX 9 to draw the graphics.
Besides that, this build is also the first version of djDecks that is completely written in C++, where the regular version still has a part of Visual Basic code.Advantages of djDecks DX
-The code for djDecks DX is almost entirely shared with the code for djDecks For Mac, so there will be less code to maintain
-By using DirectX, the graphics card can do some of the work. Especially for skins that use transparency a lot, this will significantly reduce the cpu power required to run djDecks.
-Because a lot of things are re-written, they perform better, and are better suited for future features.
-Multi-soundcard support is a lot better, so you can mix an ASIO output with a WASAPI output and waveIn inputs if you want.
-Audio CD support is a lot better, with caching of cddb track data, reading of CD-Text when available and supported, and cd insertion detection to automatically update track data
-Video and Karaoke playback
-Options window can also be customized in skins, and any part of it can also be included in scripts, midi controllers or other parts of the skin
-Playlist window is a regular window now, so all features available on regular windows can be used on the playlist window, and all playlist objects can be used on other windows as well (including resizable windows)
-Better logging: Playcount and last play time are stored in the database for each song, and the logs by date also include the time the song was playedDisadvantages
-Some features available in regular djDecks may not be available yet in djDecks DX
Since I am planning to make the DX version the default download soon with a public release, I would like everyone to report here if you find something still missing in DX that was in the regular build.
