          • Um, my bad, looks like I linked the sequel in Nyaa by mistake. I’m having similar issues with the Kara in that one too, though.

            File for the Nyaa link: [FFF] Noragami Aragoto – OP01 [BD][720p-AAC][4F093924].mkv

            • Ok, no matter how I look at this, I can’t seem to replicate the problem. Plus, I don’t think we have the same file even. The bottom lyrics in your picture are in romaji while in mine it is English.

              • Would you mind telling me which file you’re testing with?

                If you’re not seeing the romaji at all, then it’s possible that yours is completely off screen. If you open the file on Aegisub, you should see romaji in the text.

                Here’s what I pulled from the OP file in the Nyaa link. https://i.imgur.com/tBr5qWT.png

                  • Oh, I thought you were implying they weren’t there at all. My bad.

                    In my screenshot, the outline of the kara is on the top, but part of it splits off into the bottom and overlaps the translation. I think it was meant to align with the kara in the top area.

                    Looks like I was able to fix the issue, though. Initially, I tried doing a quick reinstall of the LAV filters, but it wouldn’t fix the issue. After seeing yours load properly, I decided to just do a complete uninstall and reset everything. Seems to be working fine, now.

                    I was thinking the subs might not have been compatible with whatever was rendering them and thought I might need to tweak something in the settings. Turns out that wasn’t the case, lol.

                    Sorry for the mix-up, and thanks for the help!

              • Also, not sure if monitor resolution would further displace the subs or whatever, but I’m watching this on a 1440p monitor.

  1. Is it normal to get 1 presentation glitch when opening certain releases and/or getting getting 1 presentation glitch when seeking (sometimes) if you have “use Direct3D 11 for presentation enabled” in madvr? I’ve narrowed it down to this option specifically. I haven’t narrowed it down to any specific releases, but it seems to happen to most except Erai-raws releases. I also get presentation glitches when entering or exiting fullscreen.

    I have yet to notice any presentation glitches or any visual issues during continuous playback though. But I’m curious if my setup should actually have this enabled.

    Windows 8.1
    i7-6700K 4GHz
    GeForce GTX 1060 6GB

    I initially installed using the mid-tier preset then mostly followed the madvr config guide. “delay playback start until render queue is full” and “delay playback start after seeking” are both enabled

          • Using fullscreen exclusive mode increases the amount of dropped frames during the transition to/from fullscreen, but stops presentation glitches when entering or exiting fullscreen. However it doesn’t do anything for the presentation glitch when opening a file or the occasional ones when seeking.

            I haven’t watched a lot of shows recently, so I’m still monitoring to see if there are any presentation glitches during continuous playback or actual noticeable visual issues during playback. It may be a non-issue. To be honest, I wasn’t even using “Direct3D 11 for presentation” up until recently when I noticed it wasn’t enabled. To be more honest, I’m still not sure if I notice a difference with it on or off.

  2. I’m building a new AMD desktop, for graphics thou I wonder if I should go for an NVIDIA GTX 1660 SUPER or an AMD RX 5600 XT ? I will be watching lots of 1080p stuff and I have a 144hz monitor.

  3. I notice the installer defaults to “disable madvr and set evr-cp” is this recommended only for low end pc’s or is it a good replacement for madvr?

  4. I noticed this is geared towards desktops, is there any recommendation for laptops? Or should I just try the different modes and see what works best?

    I switched to a new laptop and was looking into improving the resolution of what I watch now that I can (last device was over 6 years old). I was using MPC-BE before, but the new laptop has an Intel i7 10510U and an Nvidia MX250 so there’s headroom for better rendering or video decoding (no 24p to 60p smooth video kind of interpolation probably, but still) and I don’t mind switching to another player.

    What I watch I’d say is a mix of regular film and anime, max I have around is 10-bit 1080p H.264 and H.265 encodes. I don’t plan on getting any higher than that because I’ll be watching either in the laptop’s screen or a 1080p monitor.

    • With that laptop, you probably can get away with using software decoding and also madVR’s high-end preset.
