Now, here is how you get the best out of your Software CineMaster:
- Make sure you have the most up-to-date decoding engine (at least v2.3.6158).
- Try getting both the older 1.5.xxxx player and the newer 2.0.xxxx player, as the 1.9 and 2.0 are
not fully stable on all systems and you may want a fall-back position. And frankly, I haven't really
figured out what's new in these player versions.
- Get the latest version of DVD Genie.
Certain distributions of Software Cinemaster come with a control panel applet. DVD Genie has long incorporated
all of the features supported by this control panel (and more). And you should note that this control panel
tends to interfere with Regional support.
After either installing the player, or extracting the player files into a separate directory, copy/install the
engine files directly into your windows system directory (e.g. c:\windows\system\).
Once installed, run the player ONCE, then quit, and run DVD Genie. Now try using the DVD Genie Cinemaster Preset
button to set it for your card. Make sure to read any notes that may pop-up.
DVD Genie - Card Notes:
If you have an NVIDIA TNT or GeForce based card, you may need to manually set the DVD Genie "Surface Flip Mode"
to "DDFLIP_EVEN - Interleaved (RivaTNT)" mode. You may also need to disable the "Ignore downscale caps"
If you have a 3dfx Voodoo3 card, depending on the Cinemaster engine you are using, you may need to set the
"Surface Flip Mode" to "Voodoo 3" or to "Overlay (Riva128/Matrox) *Default*" if that doesn't
