Does your system really have no active audio capture devices?

The onboard soundcard has the ability, but there's nothing plugged in.

Ok, so then it is the bug that I thought it was.

I'm trying to understand the release system here better:

As I understand it, the latest 'official' wxlauncher version is 0.11.  However, there is also work being done on "release candidates" for version 0.12; when 0.12 gets finalized and official, will it be announced here in this thread and put in the opening post list?

As I understand it, the latest 'official' wxlauncher version is 0.11.

The latest official release is 0.10.1, which is the one that you should use.  When a new official release is made the OP will be updated and a new post added (so feel free to turn on notify for this thread).

However, there is also work being done on "release candidates" for version 0.12; when 0.12 gets finalized and official, will it be announced here in this thread and put in the opening post list?
Correct.  This is how wxLauncher releases have worked since 0.10 but they were never explicitly labeled as such.

I'm using 3.7.4 final for my build.  However, m!m told me on the previous page that it wasn't a problem that I was using 0.11 with that.

Should I switch back to 0.10.1?

What do we need to do to get a new, stable 0.12.0 release in the immediate future?

Great question. Unfortunately only Iss Mneur would know for sure, and he hasn't been around in over two weeks. :blah:

From what I remember, he was working on refactoring the third-party dependencies like OpenAL/SDL into a Git submodule. However, that shouldn't be required for 0.12.0.

Offhand I can't think of anything else that needed to be done other than probably more testing. The best way to accomplish that most likely is to release a new wxL RC on all platforms and get it in people's hands with the 3.8 RCs/nightlies. As always, I can help with macOS releases. Currently there is no public macOS release of wxL that can run the 3.8 RCs or nightlies.

This is probably a must-fix since it could shut out a lot of potential joystick users who would stop by for such a major release.

Re: RELEASE: wxLauncher 0.10.1 beta [Updated 2015/09/26]
Since Iss Mneur hasn't been around in nearly a month, I can take a look at this.

I'll need some information from a coder who's familiar with the FSO input control code, specifically:

- which platforms this issue applies to (presumably all)
how to get the joystick/controller GUID, since FSO must do it somewhere. Presumably it's an SDL2 API call.

EDIT: Correction.

wxLauncher (at least the most recent version) already uses the same SDL2 APIs that FSO uses.
The wxLauncher code does it in the JoystickManager file and FSO does it in joy-sdl.cpp.

Re: RELEASE: wxLauncher 0.10.1 beta [Updated 2015/09/26]
So it turns out I don't have the equipment to reproduce the XInput controller issue. My roommate doesn't have a working Xbox 360 controller, so I can't reproduce this. :sigh:

Perhaps Iss Mneur or another coder has an XInput controller and can look into this?

Otherwise, I'll need to work with Yarn or someone one-on-one and figure out where things are going wrong with wxL and XInput controllers.

I tried wxL master with my CH Pro Throttle USB (which is DirectInput) and wxL seems to write the correct GUID to fs2_open.ini. So offhand I'm not sure why XInput controllers would be any different.

I have a PS3 controller pretending to be an XBox 360 controller; I think that should work.

Doing some digging by code/documentation reading.

wxL itself never manually sets the GUID to zero (that is, a long string of zeroes). It sets the GUID to an empty string on error, which will cause FSO to ignore the GUID entirely AFAICT.

AFAICT the only case where the GUID gets set to 0 is in SDL itself, from the SDL wiki page:

Quote
Return Value

Returns the GUID of the given joystick. If called on an invalid index, this function returns a zero GUID; call
SDL_GetError() for more information.

Therefore wxL may be specifying the wrong index when getting the joystick GUID for XInput devices? That's one thought. I need to compare more carefully to the FSO SDL joystick code. That's what I have so far.

EDIT: Wait that doesn't make sense. wxL is passing in an SDL_Joystick* (and not an array index) when getting the GUID. I wonder if something is wrong with the version of SDL2.dll that ships with wxL?

Why is wxLauncher still using SDL 2.0.3, anyway?

That's what I meant, even the last RC we shipped is still using 2.0.3.  We need a new stable release with 2.0.4 (or 2.0.5 if we can be _newer_ than the shipping FSO version).
