1.17.02.48 Timer in statusbar keeps running
« on: August 12, 2007, 00:50:00 »
Full Version:
OpenMPT v1.17.02.48

Description of the bug:
If you open a module just to listen to some samples in the sample or instrument tag, this counter starts running, and goes on, even after stopping the playback.

How often does it happen?:
Always

Not a heavy thing, but anyway.

Confirmed, I wondered about this for ages now...

I think that this might be for VST(i)s... MPT has no real way of knowing when a vst(i) has finished sounding, so you don't want it chopped off. Also, as far as I know, the VST(i) specification stipulates that the plug should always be processing something, even if it's silence... I know that mpt doesn't always process like this (which can be a bit annoying - tails of notes get lost when you hit stop, for example), but this is, theoretically speaking, more "correct" behaviour then...

Yep, sorry I didn't mention. I tested this with an old module without any plugins.

I remember from the old days that MODPlug Tracker showed the time you were using the application in the status bar when not playing.

I thought of that too, but then the timer should start when opening the app with a file, not just after the first play-command.

Good point.

That's right. It should. =) The fact that it doesn't means that MPT isn't actually adhering to the guidelines for VSTs...
