  1. No... can't enter Registration key in my Standard Edition. Unlocked DVS is on my backup-PC, so will check that one later.
  2. OK.... so this wil NOT become a general issue. Luckily for many (?) of you. No, I do not just enter my registration number. For what I recall it went something like this: First I had to generate some request file from within DD2. This I had to upload into a personal account on the Cakewalk site, which generated a registration file. I downloaded the registration file and imported it into DD2. Done! But since quite some time Cakewalk does not support this registration method anymore, so I'm blocked for new installs. Even reinstalling Windows on my DJ PC has become a dangerous thing. I never realized that there was an easy registration method. Are we all talking version 2.73 beta? Are there different 2.73 versions then? I'm even not sure if there's a way to enter such a number in DD, can't verify that right now. It's Luis who had sent me the unlocked version. I will see one of these days if I can enter my registration key (showing in DD) in it. With a bit of luck this might render it fully functional. On the other hand... it's a DVS version and my registration was for the Standard Edition. So I have no clue if it can work at all.
  3. Indeed, and alas........ 😥 Best would be in fact -as Scoox mentioned- that the source code becomes available and continues as an Open Source Project. Mostly because next to some possible nice additions, a number of corrections or ameliorations need to be applied. I've got another major concern however! I'm thinking of replacing my DJ-laptop and currently there is NO WAY TO ACTIVATE Deckadance 2 on another PC. OK, there is an unlocked version available, but alas it appears to be not fully functional. For instance, Automix seems not to work in that version. The activation issue may be a hard reality for everyone heading towards a laptop replacement.
  4. I totally agree. Thanks to the scripting language one can accomplish incredible things. Me too, I fully customize my controller mappings. But I suppose that most of you don't invest in this scripting facility, and therefor don't see what Scoox is talking about. This is not just about different behaviour when pressing a button or shift-pressing it. This is about a button reacting in different manners depending on different settings. For example, the PLAY button reacting differently whether AUTOMIX is set or not. This is also about performing multiple actions when pressing a button. For instance, the LOAD button not only loading the track, but also turning off FX mode and looping, and resetting the EQ's. This is also about your LED's lighting in a fully personalized way, including blink, slow blink, fast blink, ... depending on current states. Or getting ALL of your LED's flashing when you reach the end of a track, for instance. This is also about your mapping being available as a script, which makes developing and modifying extremely transparant. And if ever your controller breaks down, you don't have to spend days to correctly link all buttons to there respective actions again. There is the Mixxx DJ software that allows similar scripting. Sadly, this is an open source project that -though it does quite a good job- has a number of disadvantages that make it little useful for professional and semi-professional use. Next to Mixxx and Deckadance I am not aware of any other similar software. I have looked at Traktor. It seems to offer a lot of possibilities for mapping, but I do not see the easy script method that Deckadance uses. And most of all ... I just really like Deckadance. So me too, I would much like to see it continued.
  5. Luis, I already asked by replying to similar topics, probably you missed them. It's getting quite urgent by now. I would like to set up a backup PC and also reinstall my DJ PC. Please send me activation keys for 2.72/2.73 Standard Edition for both PCs. Thanks, Raf
  6. Thanks for your reply, but I'm a bit too lazy to go for trial and error. I could write a script to easily find out (already did similar to get all midi values for LEDs), but I prefer to wait for Luis. I guess he'll soon provide the necessary values. (valueS of course, 'cuz A-B-C-D ) All depends in which degree he has the time to follow this up lately.
  7. Don't see a TAP-command in the dd_commands.h. Do I have the wrong 2.73? Reinstalled it from the link above, still none. Or which command value do I use?

    Luis, I am setting up a backup PC, so I need activation for DD 2.73. Would be best that I also reinstall my DJ PC, so I actually need 2 activations. Thank you, Raf
  9. I am a bit into the Flanger and Reverb issues again as I am writing a script for the Numark Mixtrack 3 Pro that I got myself. I noticed something that could help, and could also explain why not everyone has this issue. First note that when I say Administrator Account, I do not mean THE Administrator account, I did not try that one. I mean the initial account that was created on initial install of Windows, the first user that you create with Administrator rights. I generally run everything as a standard user, no administrator rights. When I run DD as a standard user, DD crashes as soon as the Flanger effect is started. But when I run it on my Administrator account, it appears to go well! I have tried this multiple times, up to now there's no crash and it Flangles perfectly. Then -just to try- I changed the standard account to an administrator account, and tried the Flanger. Bam.... crash! I changed the standard account back to standard, then ran DD with right click and "Run as Administrator". Works great! I have DD set up now to run on my standard user with compatibility settings "Always run as Administrator". I have used it on a few occasions like that by now, I'm still good. Hope this helps any one also suffering from the same issue, and of course helps Luis to get to a solution. What is a bit strange is that the crash does not occur on all of my PC's, although they are all set up in the same way: 1 Administrator, all others standard users. Reverb also works fine, but I did not test if it crashes DD on my PC when ran without Administrator rights. Maybe some one else can give that one a go?
  10. Hi Luis,

    I've written scripts for a Mixtrack 3 Pro which I plan to use tomorrow.

    I'm setting up a backup PC just in case, but I can't activate DD on it, invalid Cakewalk password.

    I've requested a new password but never get the Cakewalk mail and to get in touch with the support team, I must sign in first???

    Some pages "Under Construction" so probably ...

  11. The "secret" shortcut on 2.73 works great. And I still think that there is no need for even better solutions. This is already a very big improvement for script writers. Thank you.
  12. Hi Luis, Sorry, I have been "out of business" for a while. I should be back now. About the Flanger crashing DD ... I have reinstalled all audio related drivers on my Windows 7. On the rare occasions where I could allow myself to test the Flanger and other FX while risking to crash DD ... ALL WENT WELL! Nor the Flanger nor any other FX crashed DD. This was with 2.61 and twice with 2.72. So it seems it was indeed a driver issue, confirming your statement that there should be no problem with the Flanger. Alas, as I refreshed all suspected drivers at once, I have no idea which one was broken. If ever it happens again, of course I will let you know.
  13. Don't tell me ... You can always try to blame "the computer", some people still get fooled by that one! Just came to mind ... Updates are disabled on my DJ partition. One forced reboot in the middle of a gig was enough! So maybe this is simply related to something outdated like a driver. I'll keep you posted.
  14. Luis, My DJ laptop has 2 bootable partitions: DJ partition runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit with DD 2.62. Flanger mostly crashes DD 2.62 there. General partition runs Windows 10 Home 64-bit. I had tested 2.72 on this one, I can't remember if I ever tried 2.61 here. Anyway, Flanger never crashed DD 2.72 there on the Windows 10. I have tried 2.72 on the Windows 7 partition and Flanger crashed DD at first use. Could it be related to Windows 7? I will try out all 4 combinations one of these days. Unless you tell me that's not necessary?
