Xion Audio Player

Xion 1.0 build 68 Beta Release

Beta Builds of Xion. These are builds that are not quite ready for Release, but need feedback and bug submissions in order to move it to Release Status

Postby Cliff Cawley » January 26th, 2007, 8:20 am

WARNING:
This is a Beta Build. That means it has fixes and features that are NEW. It is also possible it has bugs that are NEW! If you are looking for stability, please don't expect this build to be perfectly stable. It may have issues. If on the other hand you are happy to try this build out and post any bugs back in this thread, then please do!

Download:
r2 Studios Server -> http://www.r2.com.au/downloads/files/beta/qa-xion_v1.0b68.exe
OR
Xion Server -> http://xion.r2.com.au/download/beta/qa-xion_v1.0b68.exe

Changelist:
  • Update Tray icons and main icons to remove 16 colour icons
  • Ensure each dialog correctly loads the correct number of colours for its icon instead of VGA colours
  • Add stretch smoothing for visualisation window
  • Fix Dirty rectangles not working correctly and cropping the rectangles in the wrong direction
  • Update FMODEx to 4.06.04
  • Add support for newer tag formats from streams
  • Ensure that Xion continues playing files even if they are extremely short and the pre-caching system is disabled
  • Fix Streaming mode thinking its playing when in fact it is connecting
  • Ensure Path is blanked out before searching for library files

If you find bugs specifically related to this build, please post them here instead of the Bug reporting forum. Any feedback positive or negative should also go in here, no new threads. This way all feedback, etc related to this build will be in the one place.

Very close to release now. I believe this is the final range of bug fixes before the next Public Release. If you could all test your skins out on these and make sure that everything is working and then let me know if it works/doesn't work for you, that would be great! Thanks!

Enjoy!

Cliff :)

would it be good to include a brief update of the fmodex updates too? as you've mentioned it some peeps might not know why its been updated etc...

just the html encode for the basic chars needed now from build 67 post

Cliff roughly how long are you going to wait before deciding on the final cut? just so it gives peeps a chance to dl and check it out etc..

running sweet so far, a couple of things to sort out on my skins and i'll upload them in a day or so ready for the final release :)

Great to see your program progressing forward Cliff.

Simple Library - still does not work on my computer, even with this build. Same issues as before with the long hard drive turn time and then xion shuts down while giving an error message.
AppName: xion.exe AppVer: 1.0.0.68 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 35374530

When I raise the volume on my player by clicking on the volumebt layer and not using the sliderbit, the sliderbit will go that position immediately but the volumetb does not change to reflect the new volume level. It fixes itself if I move the sliderbit back to the same level as the volumetb. See attach pic.

Last thing....what are the chances of being able to display artist, track, and album information seperately in the final cut?

The html encode is going to require a fair amount of work that will get scrapped later when I change things to do with storing strings, so for now I'll just leave it as it is. After Public release, I'll start work again on new features/fixes like the html characters.

I'll aim for the 2nd of February so hopefully that gives everyone enough time to test and provide feedback and if everything is fine, I'll create a public release Build on the 2nd.

Could you send me a copy of this Skin please? I can't reproduce this with a new skin, so its possible there is something on your skin that is causing it. Thanks :)

As for the crash, I may have to send you a debug copy or something that spits out some logging so that I can figure out what's going on on your machine.

Let me know if that is ok with you.

bug on volume slider
change volume on skin with slider or button, goto configure xion, settings tab and vol slider does not change position
expected behaviour - settings tab volume slider has moved accordingly, also settings tab volume slider should move if configure window open and volume changed by skin slider, it updates both window and skin if using the settings tab slider
