You heard it, Ambience, Particle, Plnoptic, and Spikes were removed when WMP11 came out because they were Non DXE somehow. However, even OLDER versions had more interesting visualizations called "Musical Colors" and I've managed to restore Musical Colors by registering the WMPVIS,dll file. However, I also restored Spikes after downloading Phthalo's Corona, ColorCubes, WhiteCap, G-Force, and PulsingColors. I registerd the WMPUI.DLL file from WMP7.1 and TADA, Spikes was added to the list. However, I am a little dissappointed that the other 3 NONDXE visualizations were not resotred, just spikes.
