Release: 3.7.2 Final
Happy 3.7.2 Final!  This is functionally identical to trunk r11307, only the version numbers have been changed to protect the troubleshooters.  It is an export of 3.7.2 branch r11329.  This will probably be the last final release build using DirectInput on Windows, hooray!

Important!!
As always, you need OpenAL installed.  Linux and OS X come with it but Windows users will need to get Creative's OpenAL installer. Alternatively, if Creative's OpenAL doesn't work with your hardware, you can use OpenAL Soft.

Important!!
Also, since the internal code linking for TrackIR was revised, an external DLL is now required for FSO to use TrackIR functions.
The following DLL is simply unpacked in to you main FreeSpace2 root dir.
TrackIR is only supported on Windows.

While waiting for chief1983 to fix that, the source code for 3.7.2 Final is available through both SVN and Git.

schrödinbug (noun) - a bug that manifests itself in running software after a programmer notices that the code should never have worked in the first place.

"I am one of the best FREDders on Earth" -General Battuta

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

Re: Release: 3.7.2 Final
Source exports fixed, found a bug in the release script that only affected final release builds.  Added mirrors for the Win9x builds.

Re: Release: 3.7.2 Final
Not sure if this is the right place to post this.

I'm replaying FS2 with 3.7.2 and the 2014 MediaVPs. In "Into the Maelstrom", one of the freighters/gas miners almost reaches its waypoint, then starts spinning in place. (Sounds like a "must reach these exact coordinates" versus "must get near these coordinates" issue.) In "Speaking in Tongues", the Vasudans fire on the Iceni after saying they won't.

A good place for posts like this is the FreeSpace and FreeSpace Open Support forum, but it's fine to post here.

This can happen on rare occasions.  Most infamously, it has been seen when the Galatea reaches the jump node in the FS1/FSPort mission "Paving the Way".  It has to do with the coordinates, as you surmised.  Try rebooting the computer to clear the RAM.

Don't worry about that.  It's a case of the mission events not quite adhering to the story.

This will probably be the last final release build using DirectInput on Windows, hooray!

Will this affect the support for older devices in future builds?

I am asking, because i bought a newly restored Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 a few weeks ago that uses only DirectInput and afaik do not fully support XInput (lack of Force Feedback, switched axis etc.).

We are moving to SDL, (not Xinput) to move in line with the Linux/MacOS codebase, and as far as I know this shouldn't affect support for older joysticks. Might have to wait for someone more familiar with it to comment.

Well, I should clarify that the idea is we'll be moving to SDL everywhere, including on Windows.  I believe SDL on Windows is still using DirectInput as a backend, so theoretically the joystick should still work, and joysticks have in fact been working fine with this code.  However, I've had terrible luck getting Force Feedback working on Windows with the SDL everywhere code so far, so having some more testers and bug reporters for that code will be very helpful in the coming weeks.

Ah okay. Thanks for the answer.

I am glad, that i get Force Feedback to work with this stick under Windows 7. It was somewhat tricky. So i hope, that this will work in the future too. Because i never play with FF before and i already start to like it :).

Re: Release: 3.7.2 Final
Hi, I've downloaded 3.7.2 but for some reason I have black bars down the sides of my screen. I have the resolution set at 1920x1080 which works fine for the previous version. Is there something I'm not doing right?
