What filters are listed during playback in the Filters menu in MPC-HC? (see below)

ffdshow shows up in your system log which is not something that CCCP installs.

What is your graphics card and which video renderer are you using in MPC-HC?

Hi all. When watching dark scenes in videos, a lot of the time the dark parts are so dark it's impossible to see anything. If I manually crank my graphics drivers gamma settings up, I can see the detail but it gets washed out.

Is there any way I can fix this? I apologise for the vague question as I'm not sure how to properly describe it.

Good stuff. Thank you. :)

JEEB, hold off releasing that latest build. I've just discovered that Plorkyeran's "Rewrite CTextFile::ReadString" commit breaks foreign language ANSI-encoded SRT scripts, which I guess should have been obvious since the commit message mentions dropping ANSI support... I'll need to talk to him later and request he patch such support back in.

Essentially, any family name with the first 31 characters identical to some other unique family name, would likely result in breakage.

This behavior is probably just something we are stuck will as long as we use the default Windows APIs and GDI font system. I'm sure making it more resilient is possible if we manually enumerated, cached, and requested every font similar to fontconfig, but it would be at the expense of added complexity and you would lose things like automatic fallback and font linking. At that point, someone may as well put in the effort to port VSFilter to DirectWrite API or similar. Likely not something we are going to implement ourselves.

For scripts, it should work if you just specified whatever name is shown in VSFilter's font selection dialog, which in this case is "Heisei Maru Gothic Std-NakaImo W4", even though its too long. Why Aegisub doesn't match VSFilter in this instance could be done intentionally to prevent the conflicts I mentioned above from occurring.

Best practice, when embedding all fonts in existence from a linked font family:

Use the TrueType Family name (displayed by VSFilter/Aegisub font selection).

Best practice, when not embedding all existing fonts from a linked font family and/or using system fonts:

Use the TrueType Fullname, otherwise you cannot ensure the correct font will be rendered on a wide range of systems. By specifying the TrueType Fullname, you disable font family linking of alternative styles and weights.

Note: Use of the Postscript Fontname should be avoid, since it will not work if if doesn't match TrueType Fullname.

So, what do you regard as best practice? I'm kinda baffled of how complicated and incompatible this is.
Use "Postscript family name" in ASS?
Make sure it's not longer than 31 (better 27) chars?

Is there any way XySubFilter could be smarter or is Windows not verbose enough in this regard?

The TrueType Fullname is "HeiseiMaruGoStd-NakaImo-W4", while the TrueType Family name is "Heisei Maru Gothic Std-NakaImo W4".

The reason why Aegisub suggests "Heisei Maru Gothic Std-NakaImo " and it works, is because the Windows API is restricted to the first 31 characters only.

Having names longer than 31 characters (27 on Mac) is overall bad for compatibility, so you should never see this occur in professionally authored fonts. The font in question appears to have been edited by a fansubber, likely with custom glyph, who then appended "NakaImo " into the font and family names without paying attention to length.

VLC probably used the OpenType family name which the Windows API completely ignores.

System: Windows 7 Pro
Processor: Intel Core 2.20GHz
Graphic Card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4300

Not sure why but as of two days ago MPC-HC has been crashing like crazy with no apparent reason as to why.

The log for installation has Killing Floor from Steam and the newest Adobe Flash Player.

Heres the result of using CCCP insurgent scan.

You mean sound from the subwoofer channel cannot be heard when downmixing to 2.0? That's normal, it's not used for downmixing by default (that's also the recommended setting).
