[FIXED] Jeskola Buzz refuses to open.

Post by wauterboi »

I tried loading up OldBuzz (directory C:/Buzz/Buzz.exe) and later on NuBuzz (directory C:/Buzz/Newbuzz/buzz.exe) and since that point Buzz doesn't open - period. I've tried reinstalling and nothing's working.

It just sits there doing a whole lot of nothing. It's been ten minutes now.

EDIT: Fixed. Renamed the NuBuzz directory to /Newbuzz2, installed NuBuzz into /Newbuzz, and then renamed /Newbuzz2 to /Newbuzz with merging but no overwriting.

you could have just deleted the registry settings under

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Jeskola\

i don't think it's a good idea to install nubuzz into a subfolder of old buzz ...
it's actually even problematic to run them both, because they share the same registry branch.

i am running both from the same directory but have to edit some settings before i can start either old or nu buzz.exe because
overloader does not work in nubuzz, some files that belong to overloader also do not load, some machines were updated for nubuzz
and i am using two different index text files for old and nu buzz.

there are two bat files, one to start buzz00 and one to start buzz08. i'm using them to enable or disable the special files.

start buzz00.bat

Code: Select all

copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Buzz00.exe" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Buzz.exe"
rename "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\WaveEditors\KeybRoll.dxx" "KeybRoll.dll"
rename "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\HD ScreamWaver.dxx" "HD ScreamWaver.dll"
rename "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\CyanPhase Buzz Overloader.dxx" "CyanPhase Buzz Overloader.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\index.00" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\index.txt"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys LiveJumpHACK 00.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys LiveJumpHACK.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys Peer LFO 00.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys Peer LFO.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerChord 00.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerChord.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerCtrl 00.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerCtrl.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerState 00.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerState.dll"

start /ABOVENORMAL buzz.exe  "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\InitBmx.bmx"
Start Buzz08:

Code: Select all

copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Buzz08.exe" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Buzz.exe"
rename "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\WaveEditors\KeybRoll.dll" "KeybRoll.dxx"
rename "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\HD ScreamWaver.dll" "HD ScreamWaver.dxx"
rename "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\CyanPhase Buzz Overloader.dll" "CyanPhase Buzz Overloader.dxx"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\index.08" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\index.txt"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys LiveJumpHACK 08.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys LiveJumpHACK.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys Peer LFO 08.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys Peer LFO.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerChord 08.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerChord.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerCtrl 08.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerCtrl.dll"
copy "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerState 08.dll" "D:\Audio\Studios\Buzz\Gear\Generators\BTDSys PeerState.dll"

start /ABOVENORMAL buzz.exe
another very important thing is to kill dockstate-summary entries from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Jeskola\Buzz before you want
to run old buzz after nu buzz. some-e made a little tool to do this easily. i can upload it for you, if you want to try this method.

same here. it works when all machines are up to date as far as i can tell.
i also merged the old buzz dir with the new one.
however i still use seperate old and new buzz folders which works too.

@thoke: your solution is probably the best. i got rid of Overloader and ScreamWaver stuff anyway so i only rename the old/new buzz.exe using a single batchfile when they are in the same directory.

I have similar problem with open old Buzz.
Normally I can use old Buzz ,until I open Buzz Build 1503
When I open Buzz (build 1503 32bit) and close,after this I would like open old Buzz,but it shows message:´´ Buzz has stopped working´´.I have to close it.
This issue I have in Windows 8.1 and in Windows 10(64bit both). I try compatibility Windows XP SP1,SP2 ,,etc. but nothing.
There is no problem in Windows 7 it´s OK.

Thank You

Hi thOke,

Thank You very much for this explanation.I´would like to try this method.I have not new build Buzz in the same directory with old Buzz.
It is separate,but it´s not working.In Win10 and in Win 8.1.I´m not going to use Win10 ,it has issues to play 44.1 kHz sound.
Thank you again.
Best regards

EDIT: Fixed. Thank you very much for this explanation.I just delete something in registry,now I can run old Buzz again.Perfect!
thOke,UNZ: excellent .

I am hardly running old Buzz these days, but i remember i always had to "kill dockstate-summary" with this
little tool before i could open Buzz from 2000 after using Buzz from 2008!
