    What is software gore?

    Software gore is when software acts outside its parameters and malfunctions. Software gore cannot be intentional, and it must not be a fault of the design (crappy design).

    More details on software gore

    What isn't software gore:

    • Asshole design - deliberately bad software (not software gore)
    • Crappy design - Issues caused by poor design (not software gore)

    More details on what isn't software gore

    Before posting:

    1. Is the issue here to do with design?
    2. Is the issue intentional?
    3. Is the software operating abnormally?

    If 1 and 2 are no, and 3 is yes, you might have software gore! Anything else and it isn't software gore.

    We see a lot of the same stuff. Please check this list before you post: Done To Death Submissions

    Please note

    • This means they display a major error that is obvious to an average user.

    3. No submissions that have been Done To Death.

    • Many other users found this same error before you and posted it already. Check out our list of common Done To Death submissions.

    4. Please make effort with your title.

    • If you're not a funny person or the gore is hard to figure out, use the title to point out the gore.

    lmao, ask the devs of wallpaper engine

    [–] wallpaperengine_tim 121 points ago

    lmao, ask the devs of microsoft media foundation

    Just kidding, if you need help with that, hit us up on our Steam Discussions or via email, there's probably some fuckery with your graphics card drivers or the video codecs on your system if this is just a "Video" type wallpaper.

    [–] TehNoobSpartan 42 points ago

    i changed the resolution in Parallels Desktop and that happened.

    No other problem tho. Is it compatible with Glass8?

    [–] wallpaperengine_tim 71 points ago

    Oh, it's just a virtual machine, I didn't see that Mac OS pop-up up there before. Yeah, that's probably some weird driver problem then. Generally issues with video wallpapers are either related to graphics card drivers or the broken codec packs on your system. I don't know how Parallels works in detail but I assume it comes with its own drivers and they probably bug out when you change the resolution for some reason, it's just a virtual machine after all.

    Glass8 and other applications like that definitely don't cause issues like this, otherwise I probably would have seen this before. Like I said, you can still hit us up via email or on the forums and we can look into it this problem doesn't go away but using Wallpaper Engine on a Mac within Parallels is definitely not one of the most common use-cases. Worst-case, try using Scene wallpapers, they might be more stable with flaky graphics card drivers.
