Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #6! (Hopefully final)Okay. A few more TINY problems were addressed here:
+ Fixed author/language name loading code. Was still trying to read ANSI-characters which scrambled the display in non-ANSI languages (actually a not-so-tiny problem)
+ Added chinese localization contributed by fengda2870 - available from apophysis.xyrus-worx.org
+ Fixed a few strings which were not localized
I really hope this is the last hotfix release and it's perfect now Enjoy!

A few common Apo7X15C problems and their fixesI get an error about Apophysis7X.rand and/or Apophysis.undo when I start ApophysisMore Like This
It's a Vista/7-issue which spawned after using Delphi XE2 as the main compiler (since 15C) You have multiple possibilities:
1. Right click the Apophysis shortcut or EXE-file and select "Properties". Go to the "Compatibility" tab and check "Run as administrator". Try again.
2. Copy your Apophysis folder to the desktop (or "My Documents") and try running it from that location.
3. Go to the control panel and disable UAC ("User account control")
A permanent fix is on the way.
I get a crap ton of access violations when I open Apophysis and/or the Editor window
My assumption is that there is an incompatibility in your settings. Reset them the following way:
1. Exit Apo, hold the Windows-Key and hit "R" on your keyboard. Enter "regedit" and hit return.
2. On the left side, browse to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software" and find the folder "Apophysis 7X".
3. Right click that folder and click "Delete".
Apophysis' diet progressingHello again guys!More Like This
As I've been announcing in the previous journal (here), my work on Apophysis currently focuses on removing features which do not have a wide range of uses or users anymore. Many people gave me their feedback and from what I could hear, random batches are the most missed thing.
While I understand that, I still think that sacrifices must be made. And if you are indeed one of those who use random batches (or smooth palettes or whatsoever), you can still do that in older versions of Apophysis. May it be a different branch (such as Apophysis 2.09 or 2.08_3D) or an older version of Apophysis 7X. I have you reminded that all the older versions of Apophysis 7X can be found here!
Now let's talk a bit about the progress. The cleanup allowed me to get rid of many things, which were intented to be
A smaller ApophysisHello and waddup guys!More Like This
I'm writing here because of a poll I made yesterday which you can find here: http://xyrus-02.deviantart.com/journal/poll/4471782/ - and I simply want to take the time to talk to you what the shit I'm talking about
So basically, Apophysis will receive some cleanup cuts. Why? Because Apophysis' code is, frankly said, a monster and almost impossible to maintain. This goes on the account of both, speed and stability. It's simple as that. Any system needs to lose legacy things at some point to remain maintainable. You have to understand that every feature which remains in Apophysis is prone to break with a change. The less maintained the system is, the more likely it breaks.
But what does this mean? First, let me say, I was already assuming that you guys will vote for a sleeker Apophysis (the "yes" option) and so you shall have it. But everything at its time. Now you have to see that the way the fractal community uses Apophysis changed drastically over time. P
Apophysis 7X (Public Domain)Hey guys, it's GeorgeMore Like This
I've been building the latest PD code on SourceForge.net and just call it an update since there have been a few changes:
+ Added keyboard shortcuts to zoom the editor panel (Numpad Multiply and Numpad Divide to zoom in or out)
* Changed versioning labels: this version does not carry a version number
- Removed donate button
- Removed trace log option in menu
Since the scripting component is a little problematic - legally and technically -I've set the "DisableScripting" flag in the source code by default. This means you can't use scripts in this version which has been build directly from the source. The scripting feature of Apophysis is based on a component named "TMS Scripter Studio" which is commercial. I can't provide it on SourceForge and if I would enable it in the code, nobody else who didn't buy the component would be able to build Apophysis. I didn't want to change it locally because I wanted you to give you an exact build of the
More infos about Apophysis 7XHello guys, George againMore Like This
I've been talking about how the development of Apophysis continues lately. I've got some updated info for you. I'll keep it short and brief:
1. Apophysis 7X is in the hands of the Apophysis Dev Group which everybody can join. It's on Google Groups.
2. This group is currently maintained by me and cyberxaos
3. The 7X code is back on SourceForge
4. The project on SourceForge is maintained by me and cyberxaos - if you need a dev invite, contact either of us
5. The 7X code is publicly readable but since anon commit might be a bad idea, write-access is invite-based
I personally will not commit to 7X on SourceForge in the near future (if at all) - I've got some experimental things going on ("DirectOpacity", dynamic plugin loading/unloading, an enhanced copy/paste-feature). I might or might not commit them to the public c
Why I was deactivated and a small announcementHey guys. It's George speaking,More Like This
If you watched my profile closely, you might have noticed that I was deactivated for a few days. I've got some "why"s about that and obviously, I'm back now. Well here is why: after some thinking about what I'm still doing here, I made the decision to close my account. Sounds harsh but hey, you all know where to get Apophysis, the plugins and whatever you need. And you also have a support e-mail if you need help and last but not least, you find a fractal coding discussion platform at the mailing list, no problem. You can also follow my art on RedBubble if you're not here to get help with Apophysis. And this website is stuck in the early 2010's, still doesn
Plugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminderHi guysMore Like This
Since I obviously don't have anything better to do this fine day, I sat down and made 94 (!) existing plugins for Apophysis readable for the 64-bit-version of Apophysis 7X (commonly known as 7x64) - I'm talking about almost all of the plugins available as source code on SourceForge.net including my own. I just skipped some odd non-standard ones, those which are built-into Apo7x15 and dc_image. I don't know what else is floating around in outer space so if you note me the source code (*.c), I'd convert some more too.
It cost me an imaginary pack of cigarettes and 90% of my remaining sanity. So here is the download link:
Please make sure you read the file README.TXT before you send me messages and comments whining about that it doesn't work for you
Also, be advised that I just compiled them. I did not test each single one of them. That'll be u
Final-Transform fix for 15DHey guysMore Like This
I know it's been some time but I'm having hell of a release going on here. So I just didn't came to check on what's wrong with the saving of final transforms. I finally made it so that I'm not there 7am to 10pm every day. This means: it's fixing time.
To provide you with an acceptable solution, I just reverted the behavior of FXes to the one of 15C. So that you at least get to use 64 bit plugins / scripts AND final xforms
Here it is: http://download.xyrus-worx.org/apophysis/apo7x-15d_hf1.zip
It's a patch so just replace the EXE files in your installation. If you didn't update yet, you can with this. In this case, you also just replace the EXE files. Remember the release notes from the original 15D package, though. It contains valuable information on how to use 64 bit plugins and compile multi-architecture plugins (32/64) from existing and new plugin code.
See you soon

Where do I get Apophysis? Is it expensive?
Apophysis is free, open-source software. That means, it does not cost you a cent. In addition, everyone is able to change the software using
the available source code. This is also why there are different
versions of Apophysis:
The "official" or "main" version of Apophysis. You can download it from Apophysis.org

The new location is http://apophysis-7x.org; you can see the main page there. Downloads, history, etc.
Then there is http://code.apophysis-7x.org; you can read the current source code online at this location. Live. As I commit it (for example when I fixed a single bug)
And finally (for now) there is http://code.apophysis-7x.org; this is the new main bug tracker for Apophysis 7X.

+ Fixed two strings regarding the Chaotica integration. They were always english. The language files have been adjusted accordingly.
+ Fixed the "dot"-bug with the waves2-, noise- and crop-variations (and possibly more) occuring when you use multithreaded rendering. The origin was a structural misconception with the opacity handling. It now works smooth & fine! No corrupted renders in my own tests. If you have some after this release, please report!
