@Tcheko: You're the only one reporting such behaviour about the 'Add' button which works fine here and at least from 10 betatesters who didn't reported me any issues with... Did you had a look behind the main window when clicking the 'Add' button? ASL requester window might have gone behind it...
If I was author of the program that exhibited this behaviour then I'd be concerned about why it would do that on a standard Ambient desktop screen - which is what it did then, and now, as you requested me to re-check it's behaviour. It is the only MorphOS and even an Amiga program that I have ever seen open a requester after the program has just Quit .......... it really is weird.
I waited for about 1 minute after the program had loaded, as the CPU busy state quickly got to 100%, and checked behind the SoundBankster main GUI window - NO requester, then I used the menu 'Cmd/Amiga+Q' though I have used the close program [X] in the top left section of the window border to close it before, but the same behaviour each time. I just can't believe no-one else has reported this strange behaviour.Quote:
@Tcheko: Try to boot from a CD and test from a default system.
Are you saying if I want to use SoundBankster I should use my 'injected keyfile' registered MorphOS CD to test it works OK?
I will try this idea of yours, but I am surprised you have asked me to do it, and I will let you know the result, shortly.
OK ........... here's the results of those tests you wanted me to do ......
1. Booting from MorphOSBoot CD - SoundBankster loads OK, and the requester works as you'd expect, and files load OK - all works OK
2. Going back to my system I figured out where the Soundbankster.prefs file goes (that affects the 'skin') in ENV:Mui/<Soundbankster.prefs-file> AND by adding that file into ENV:Mui/ or Sys:Prefs/Env-archive/Mui/ the program now works OK, so you just need to figure out a way to stop this issue happening for people who download/install it, and expect it to work correctly - 'out-of-the-box' - which it doesn't do, well not on my system without the 'skin'-prefs file being put in Prefs/Env-Archive/MUI/ , which also fixes the 100% CPU issue, AND the 'glitchy/twitchy' GUI input areas, so I hope you fix this as soon as you can so this issue doesn't come up again, anytime soon.
I feel as though I have been treated like a naughty child, ... RTFM, Boot from CD, look behind the GUI for the requester ..... really not very nice when all I was after was some advice, and a solution to the problem - which if you'd let me know where to place the 'skin/prefs' file all would have worked OK from then on, and then the 100% CPU issue would have been gone, and the program would have been working OK.
Basically it's not my fault, it's the 'skin' / prefs issue that has caused all this problem, and you need to get it fixed, and ideally a place in the settings where someone can import their own/others 'skins' so they know how to fix this issue - AND ... it needs documenting in the Guide file, and ideally ALSO in the Quickstarter PDF - so WTFMP (Write TFM Properly)
before you consider pointing what seems like the finger of blame at me for problems you've not carefully & properly assessed in the first place.
Having said that, I like the program and appreciate all the effort you have put in making this program what it is, BRILLIANT !!
Want me to input something about the 'skin'/prefs file in the Guide file in English to save you the time ....... for free? Quote:
@Tcheko: Thanks for your proofreading offer but someone already applied for.
I am not 'applying' for the job, I have just done it, for FREE, as it needed doing, just to help, as I have done for other software authors, and for Amiga magazines. I thought it might be of benefit to you, but if you don't want it I'll just keep it for myself, but if you want it at a later date then just let me know - when it will still be FREE.
You haven't let me know how to change the 'skin' of the program, so how am I to avoid the CPU 100% busy state occuring all too soon?
This 'skin-change' may slow the program down, steady it, so it does not exhibit these 'hyper-active' window areas of SoundBankster, and allow the requester to open correctly. I don't know, but I'll let you know about the 'Test from CD' result fairly soon.
EDIT ......... I was right, the 'skin'/'prefs' file is the FIX for the program from initial installation - without it the program misbehaves
