Question: Why did Winamp have both a directsound and waveout output system even in the last year or two? That seems silly. [permalink]

    Why did it have both in the beginning? Some systems did better with one vs the other... Why did it have both in the end? Feature latch.

    I like the music, and I like the humor in the music, yeah.

Question: Are you amazed that such things like these (link below)would be possible with JSFX or was it "expected" from you? [permalink]

    That's pretty fancy, a level of flare I wouldn't expect.. I dig it! but doing that in JSFX is actually a lot easier than doing it elsewhere... e.g. my bigger graphical JSFX projects like super8 and General Dynamics, to write in C++ would be a huge pain, whereas in JSFX they are nice 1100 and 500 line (respectively) scripts... without flare. I guess super8 has a slight bit...

    Looking at the code now, heh those plug-ins are huge, 8000+ lines each... Pretty pretty though :)

Question: Err, no I'm getting a traceback just by trying stuff like fnv.hash('Close',bits=64)... I'm just trying to generate hashes for my langpack from action name (when you add new ones), since last version of langpack template is 5.22... [permalink]

    Hmm, I dunno. I'll release a new template langpack.

Question: Is this python implementation of FNV alg (tinyurl.com/gutl4u5) good for creating langpack hashes? I'm throwing some simple things like "Close" at it but it doesn't work... [permalink]
Asked by EvilDragon (213.191.130.x) on January 3 2017, 10:20am

    It probably needs a nul byte added to the end of the hashed data.

    *cough* REAPER requests like this aren't really appropriate here as they'd quickly overrun the place... but: 8M slots should be enough for anybody! (kidding) I think the default for ReaScripts should be something much larger, will look at making that the default.

Question: It seems you didn't give that lady a chance, the performance is not terrible, first minute is stage fright. But seeing how you treat people on the forums it seems you can't really hold your focus for too long. The forum is starting to look as bunch of people trying to please devs so they keep releasing updates they are so addicted to. Don't you feel it's time you put REAPER to rest and start with something new in life? Things die, it's normal [permalink]
