An updated version of Apophysis 7X15C is hitting the servers right now. The changes are:

+ Added possibility to specify a custom plugin path for the 32 bit version
+ Fixed bipolar variation (wrong constant used in preparation routine - M_2_PI is not 2 * PI. Thanks, Fred!)
+ Fixed "X"-button next to the search field
+ Fixed a memory leak in the renderer
+ Changed the 32 bit version to use 32 bit-floats (instead of double precision = 64 bit floats) which results in less memory use in the 32 bit version and higher image quality in the 64 bit version
+ Changed Chaotica integration so that 64 bit Chaotica is enforced if 64 bit Apophysis is running

I'm sorry for the update frequency but that's how it is in the first days after a new major release! People are actively tracking bugs and report the results to me. And I fix them and release hotfixes :) Once we - as a community - tracked down all the (not so hidden) bugs, the update frequency will drop to normal again :nod:

As usual, the download links for the latest files:

Download binaries (32 and 64 bit)


Download source code



Attention: I strongly suggest that anyone who updates to 15C uses the script "Reset settings.cmd" by just double clicking it in the Windows Explorer. This will ensure that you have no incompatible settings from old versions of 7X. There a lot of problems including Access Violation rages if something is wrong in your settings. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE reset them using the script BEFORE you come to me and report bugs. Kay? :)

I'm having similar problems to those that *zweeZwyy's finding: despite wiping the registry key, I still get access violations when trying to open the editor :cries: XP pro, SP2

~morphapoph went on the hunt and found out, that plugins are loaded despite there is a built-in variation with the same name now :O Could you try removing all plugins please? Thanks!

Works with ALL plugins removed :thumbsup: Previously, I had removed all duplicates that are now built in. With 15B, there were 40 built-in variations and I had 113 plugins. 15C has 75 built-in variations, but I only had to remove 25 so maybe the total number of variations has something to do with it? It had no trouble handling my reinstated registry settings with no plugins! Just added 20 plugins back and still working. Curiously, it displays these before the built-in off-white variations :confused:

The problem has been circled in and eliminated with HF3 :) The "does the variation exist"-check broke and loaded variations wildly which caused the errors. Maybe now with HF3 you can try set up your plugins as they were befoe and try again?

The loading sequence is a bit off honestly and I don't know why. Maybe I find a fix for that too! The heap of changes brings a heap of new problems too, it seems ;)

Indeed! But I have the same trouble as *AmorinaAshton with regard to colours. Seems it's an issue with both display and the internal rendering, yet chaotica renders as normal. Something to do with those new curves, perhaps?
