Subliminal Message Pro2.12.1

24 January 2017

Replicate subliminal messaging with customized flashing text.

Overview

Subliminal Message Pro lets you explore the idea of subliminal messages. Messages up to 80 characters are flashed in the middle of your display, on top of everything. The SMP Control Panel lets you set the period between flashes, the font size and color, font darkness, choice of message selection (in list order or at random), possibility of reverse spelling, and automatic minimize of Control Panel upon launch. Shortcut Option-z lets the User Pause/Continue flashes. Five message categories with five messages each are provided to help you understand how the program works; you can replace these with your own categories and messages.

Categories and messages may include Latin, Japanese, Spanish, French, German, Greek, Korean, Cyrillic, Hebrew, Russian, Afrikaans, Polish, etc., characters. Control Panel settings and location and Message Table information are saved between sessions.

SMP is $20 shareware. You can try SMP in demo mode for ten minutes per launch, after which time the application closes. Registration removes this limitation.

This is a terrific app with lots of potential for mental health professionals. Subliminal priming of the brain can have powerful on perceptions of self and other. Secure Base Priming (attachment theory) can help people develop more constructive emotion regulation strategies that have positive effects on interpersonal relationships. This app could be used therapeutically while people work on their computer. Unfortunately, subliminal advertising has used this technology to get people to purchase things they may not really want or need, and therefore gives subliminal messaging a bad rap. Thanks for developing it. I plan to use it with people who are wanting to improve self-esteem and relationships.

you can get this kind of thing free in a Java version here: http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Utilities/Free-Subliminal-Text.shtml, not sure if they will allow a rival link but the Java is called Free subliminal text.

You can do much the same thing by making a GIF with the right settings (timing,etc) and pay nothing. This is a ridiculous price to pay for this. I might pay 99¢ in the AppStore but only if I was feeling foolish. Sorry, no deal. Shame on you.

Really miss the On-Screen Time and Font Size adjustability found on version 1.5.0 . The font size with version 2.0.0.0 is way too large and can't be adjusted smaller.

I like this funny app, which also actually works. Never seen an app grow in version numbers so quickly, already at number 5. It does get alot of updates, though.

You may not have noticed that the "Darkness" slider also dims the picture. You can make the picture completely impossible to see if you move this slider to the far left. Bring the slider up until the picture is just visible. Paul Young, CSoM

Robert, excellent question on timing. The on-screen time is the time that the information is sent to the screen but different displays have different response times. A flashed message on a slow display will be slower to decay. Paul Young, CSoM

With which CPU and graphics cards do the timing selections test as accurate for pictures? Every setting seems the same--actually the shorter settings seems longer, though this may be because of my expectation that they be less noticeable. I find every image readily recognizable and quite superliminal. Images are even more intrusive by the white background that is flashed around them to fill the entire screen. Oddly, pictures must be kept in a fixed subfolder of ~/Documents instead of a selectable folder or even a subfolder in... ~/Pictures. To make your images available to the program, you can make an alias to your folder of images, move it under ~/Documents, and rename it to "SMPictures".

Um... do subliminal messages work if you are the one who programs them for yourself?

Long sentences do not work as subliminal messages. Only pictures or simple words. And simple words work only for a short time.

great little app, does one job, and now very nicely with the text over all apps. Can I make a request though, and have the duration last longer? Say up to 500ms or eevn 1 second. Not subliminal I know, but nevertheless a great tool for language learning (trying to grasp a sentence with kanji and hiragana in 25ms, or even 50 is beyond my tiny brain) cheers, and keep up the great work - it's appreciated!

I used similar software on the pc for quite a while. Cool stuff. This software has a major flaw and that is the ability to write a long string of text...like a full sentence. I'd pay for such software

Messages are flashed whenever application is running; you can minimize the Control window and still see the messages. That is the expected use of Subliminal Message. Paul Young, CSoM

Messages don't appear when the application is hidden. The only way to "hide" Subliminal Message is by minimizing the main window to the dock. On a different note, Subliminal Message works just fine with VirtueDesktop's workspaces. Thank you for this fantastic program. I'll report if I notice any effects over the next few weeks. http://parahuman.org/journal/

This is getting better. The new display method is perfect. A few things I think are missing though: - the Prefs need a way to preview the settings for the opacity. Perhaps a checkbox to show the message with the current settings while editing. - the Messages window is not very user-friendly. It needs to have Groups & checkboxes for both groups & individual messages so one can turn on and off stored messages. The default list is odd (what is up with the "lonely" item?) and should be it's own group. Also need a way to shift & command select multiple items to delete. - messages need to allow for a longer length. The current limit doesn't allow for more than a few words. I'd like to get a sentence or two in there. - I'd also like to see a prefernce for longer on screen settings, where the message might not be so subliminal. Would be nice for motivational quotes & such. A fade in & fade out would be nice for the longer settings. - On-screen message is not centered (at least not on my MacBook). It's a bit to the left and above center. Would even be cool if you could set separate prefs for certain groups, allowing certian messages to appear on-screen longer & darker, with longer intervals (15, 30, 45 & 60 mins) while simultaneously allowing other groups to use alternate settings (5, 10, 15, 30 seconds) with different duration & opacity. Enjoying the development on this project, I think the dev is on to something cool here.

What this thing needs is a bezel (similar to when you change the Mac's audio volume) that flashes a *customizable* message at not only the speed, but the interval set by the user. Using Growl maybe? Should be text only (no gray outline) or at least customizable (size, color, transparency etc. for both text & bezel box) Clicking on those buttons isn't very subliminal at all. Needs to do it's thing while you are doing other things on your Mac.

I wouldn't be so blatantly arrogant as the person in the post below as to say this or that does or does not work... I live in a world that is a little less black and white... Wikipedia is a little more open-minded... open your mind... open your mind.. open your mind.. and let me stick my... thought in there... LOL http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subliminal_message Anyway funny little app... I'll give it a try.. I'm a good sport LOL

Subliminal messages don't work. They do nothing at all, and the study that everyone refers to was proved fake, and the guy admitted it himself. http://www.snopes.com/business/hidden/popcorn.asp
