Known Issues – 2.0beta2

There’s a few consistent issues I’m seeing which I do not need further reports on:

  • macOS: crash on startup – there’s a bug in portaudio or in how AFV-Native uses portaudio causing this and the last update changed it from being intermittent to being reliable. I will be chasing this one up in the next week or so.
  • Windows: plugin not loading (module not found) – In the changes to the build tooling, it seems I accidentally reset the plugin to being built against the Dynamically linked C runtime by accident. You likely need to install the “Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2019” for x64. I will try to fix this for the next release so this is no longer a consideration, or the correct runtime installer is included in the download.

For everbody else, I will respond to legitimate bug reports as able, but bear in mind the full instructions on the submission page – the form is for bug reports only – I can make no leeway for people not obeying the bug submission instructions.

  • If you’re not submitting a bug, your submission will be deleted without response.
  • If you do not submit the Log.txt, or edit/filter it prior to submission, your submission will be deleted without response.

XSquawkBox 2.0 beta 2 is out

XSquawkBox 2.0 beta2 can be downloaded from the downloads page. The expiry date remains unchanged as 1 Dec 2019.

All users using 2.0 beta 1 should upgrade immediately.

Please read the beta1 release post if you have not already done so as it contains critical information for using XSB 2.0.

Beta 2 has the following fixes:

  • macOS build should now be built with macOS 10.9 as the mandated minimum version. (we can’t do 10.8 anymore due to dependencies. sorry.)
  • A logic inversion that prevented the text radio from working was identified and corrected.
  • AFV-Native: The default device selection logic was reworked slightly to reduce the risk of not being able to start-up audio at all.
  • xplanemp: The Asynchronous OBJ8 loader is now reenabled when it’s available.

Beta 2 has the following known issues:

  • macOS build is still not signed.
  • The manual is still missing.
