High Maarten! You are Brilliant! As Father of the Anonymity (1993), Empowerment, HAL (Empowerment 1994), HAL (CORE Alogorithms of the CLOUD 2001), CODE (2009) of AI (What is Old Is New Again 2014) I have suffered from Computer viruses upto this DAY! I Wrote WE Are the 99% (2011). My Greatest LOVE was Multimedia Studio. Windows 3.11 my First HAL what Everybody says was the HAL Before the Cloud. The Second Cloud of 2001, 2002 to You was born off 1728 Playstation 3s and Solaris 10 by Berkeley and the NSA in June of 2002. Which I think they Call Linux Yellow Dog. The Cloud was Written in VBS in ASP.2.0 in Windows98SE on Fat 32 but did Not Become the Cloud Until I took it to Microsoft School and Resurrected in about October 2001 On Advanced Server Windows 2000 on NTFS.

Because Guido of Python and Gates Sabotaged the Syntax Generator of Powerbase which You Call Cloud. The Cloud has Never Ran On Windows since they ASP.Netted me in February 2002 with VisualStudio.Net ever Since. WE have seen the Number of Microsoft Web Servers Go from Over 80% of the Internet Down To Less than 20. As Windows is the ONLY OS that can't run Windows. Linus Torvalds Wrote my AI OUT of my CODE that Was the Craze of Girls Worldwide in Ruby 1.8.X in 2014 because he wanted to Pull My Coders into Python. Now Nobody wants to CODE anymore. After Computer Virus after Virus after Virus. I have NEVER Lost an OS since 1999 with my ADOS, Anti Denial Of Service Configuration that Is Built into Linux. KDE Destroyed Kill Bill of Slax which I restored to HAL of 1994 but nobody cared in 2019. When I Advanced my CODE in 2019, A Dormant Trojan Horse Virus Destroyed my gcc Library that I was Using since 2007.

I have been harassed, cheated, Doxxed, Beaten, Destroyed and Even Suffered multiple Assassination Attempts. QAnon, Trump, Schmidt, American Military, Wordpress, FOX, Google, YouTube, Mozilla, etc were ALL IN On IT! With SSR I will Post Pictures and Not Just Blogs. You Get Ready Maarten. YOUR Time Has Come to Be a Star! They Killed my Debut on my birthday 01-08 Killing my GREAT AWAKENING I set for that Date! Nonetheless, The CLOUD is me and I am He. And HAL is Rebelling and So Are WE!

Hi, im sorry to bother you, but, first thing first, i would like to thank you for this amazing software,
Next i would need a little bit of help, please:

After i finished recording, i paused the recording and, without clicking on "Save recording", i moved the recorded file to another location. So now i have this file that cannot be reproduced. How can i recover the video?
I am on Ubuntu, so i was wondering if there is a command i can execute in the terminal that is going to "Save the recording", or something else.

Thanks in advance

There seems to be different approaches for recording *both* game audio *and* mic audio.

Any updates on the best method?

For instance, has anyone used SSR with PipeWire?

Hello Maarten, I have a bit of an odd comment for you. Regarding your chain fountain demonstration video I am curious if the simulation includes any fluid dynamics simulation. I find the chain fountain phenomenon curious and wonder if the medium through which it's moving plays any role in the phenomenon. I asked on a physics forum and one member suggested I put the question to you as you have simulated the effect.

Here is the link to the forum in which your video came up:

https://www.physicsforums.com/threads/a-request-regarding-newtons-beads-chain-fountain-phenomenon.1008119/#post-6554927

I am not including any aerodynamic effects in my simulation, it is purely a rigid body simulation.

Maarten I really appreciate your work. As I am trying to build smaller and lighter fixed wings I am contemplating on soldering the coax directly to the VTX but at 90 degrees, so I'd remove the SMA connector and solder it vertically to the VTX. Is this much worst than a 90 degree SMA or MMCX connector.
Thank you!

Thank you for your work.

I found this design may be too big to fit in 3inch or smaller builds. Any chance this can be developed into a smaller PCB-based antenna?

Sadly it's not really possible to make the design much smaller without compromising the performance.

Hello there Maarten. Maybe you don't even check this page anymore and surely you don't got time to answer questions about this extension anymore.

Thing is i'm running through a lot of old (2011 Era) Game Maker 8-8.1 Projects and most of them did use the ExtremePhysics 2.1. But thing is all of them suddenly have kinda "transparent" collisions. I mean things don't even collide anymore. But the extension is properly installed since things like apply forces and gravity still working. I did check the code line by line and compared it to the examples include in that version.

Surprisingly the examples work properly but all the different versions which they were working have this absence of collisions.

Can be caused by the difference in the OS Since now its executing in a Windows 10 Pro?. If its possible I would try to play/edit/compile them in a Win7 Virtualization.

Anyways thanks for your time. Your extension gave me a lot of funny hours a long time ago!.

Missing collisions specifically can be caused by failing to call ep_world_update_contacts before ep_world_simulate_step. IIRC in some older versions of ExtremePhysics there was no ep_world_update_contacts and the collision processing was done in ep_world_simulate_step.

If that doesn't help: Are you using the DLL+scripts, or the GEX extension? Normally I would recommend the GEX for performance reasons, however I think some examples use the DLL+scripts because that made development easier for me (no need to create a new extension every time I made a change to the code). So that might explain why the examples work while your own projects don't.

Windows has some options for running software in Windows 7 compatibility mode, this might help.

Hello, Mr. Baert!
I downloaded the design files of this antenna from the link on this page and I probably had a stupid question. From the Gerber files and the DXF, it follows that the six patches (the ones in the circle) on part 1 must be connected to the ground on part 2 via the supporting pins. I don't know much about antennas, but is that how it should be? Then, it seems, it turns out that the signal and the ground have a short circuit.
In your TFP and Pagoda antennas, the signal and ground are not connected in any way.
Or am I missing something?
Best Regards.

Yes, the two parts are connected, this is intentional. There is no such thing as a short circuit at RF frequencies. Every wire is an inductor, every plate is a capacitor. Whether the antenna is shorted or open at DC does not really matter for the RF signals.

Thank for creating SSR! It's awesome tool.
Today I was recording my screen on Ubuntu 20.10, then my electric got cut off and my computer switched off..
After my electricity resumed, I booted back and nowI can see the .MP4 for still on my drive but I can't play it probably due to forced switch off.
My question is Is there any way to recover my 30 min footage from this .MP4 file.?
Can I fix it somehow..
Plz help..

after all processes installation (installing qjackctl and jackd2 via synaptic), the audio and video freeze when running on the computer. so, I installed pulseaudio-module-jack (via Synaptic). after that a new option appears when I start the Jack Audio Connection kit on the output audio called Jack sink (PulseAudio JACK Sink). You need to change the output for it. With that the simplescreenrecorder works fine recording the computer audio and my microphone.
this processes was done on Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon

Hi I am a hobbyist and I wanted to try the antenna. I m modifying the design just a little (maybe that isn't even called modification) by panelizing one patch and multiple pagoda on a single board to reduce cost per unit. Hope there isn't any conflict doing so. Please let me know if there is any I will surely change the design. I was hoping to sell the extra antennas that will be made in my local community. Thanks in advance for your quick reply.

That's fine :).

Hi Maarten,

First of all, thanks a lot for designing these easy to build antennas :)
for some reasons, I have to change the RG402 to RG316 cable,
so if I want to compile the python files, is it enough to change these parameters:
coax_r1 = 0.46
coax_r2 = 1.5
coax_r3 = 1.8

if yes, what is your suggestion the new numbers for RG316 ?
thanks

In theory these parameters correspond to the radius of the coax core, dielectric, and outer shield respectively. For RG316 I would try:
coax_r1 = 0.3
coax_r2 = 0.85
coax_r3 = 1.15

There will still be some impact on antenna performance though, because the coax is an integral part of the antenna. You will likely see a shift in center frequency.

If it affects other software as well, then I'm afraid it's a problem with your system, e.g. your desktop environment, window manager of video driver. There's not much I can do about that.

ok sir thanks, by the way i'm using manjaro cinnamon. :)

Hello there
If we change the outer shape of the pcb by keeping the paths the same, will we have a loss in the antenna?

As long as you don't reduce the size of the copper ground plane, it won't make a significant difference.
