Sound navigation seems even slower, as you have to wait for the waveform to load before the correct sound plays, which can take a second or two. Playing a sound before the waveform has loaded plays the previously loaded sound before getting cut off by the currently loaded sound.

Wow, the new tools and improvements look really awesome.

But I got a serious problem while testing a project of mine: sometimes when opening a stage, I eventually closed FFS and opened it up again, and then noticed my original stage files were deleted. For sure this happened a couple of times, as I had been recovering the stage using a backup folder. Not sure if the crashes regarding the sprite editor are also related to that;
Edit: maybe it's related to a engine directory bug? I just noticed there are new copies of the stage .sff file in the folders listed for the "Run the project in engine..." function. Still, the original files were completely gone;

Nonetheless, thank you guys for the updates. This looks promising! :2thumbsup:

Just tested the new fixes. I think the crashing is delayed, but I still occasionally get them from time to time. Now it crashes when closing 4 character tabs while in sprites, states, command, or sound and then trying to view the animations of the 5th character. If it doesn't that time, then onwards. I should also mention if you are already on animations instead when closing character tabs and then switch to states, the program will crash that way too. I have so many crash logs on my computer and I don't understand why the program keeps doing this. Right now in my opinion, the program is great for testing finished characters but not so much for making/editing them in it.
Fixed all possible cases that can lead to all crashes you're having after closing tabs and switching to another editor. Thanks!
EDIT: I successfully reproduced everything you said, and fixed all issues.

thanks for the new release!!

i've a question. if i add/modify a sprite and then save SFF, it says it find 50 errors and i've to fix them before save.

in the old FF3 this message's never appeared (in fact i'm still using ff3 right now).

since i have more than 2700 sprites to check, is there a way to know at least which sprites has "errors", so i can try to fix them?

thanks in advance. ;) ;)

This was made to avoid user mistakes, as two sprites with same group/index are useless as they can't be referenced, and corrupted ones can crash Mugen. To see the error click at the red icon on status bar. In the window that opens, double click the error/warning, FF will go to the affected sprite and you can fix the problem.

Sound navigation seems even slower, as you have to wait for the waveform to load before the correct sound plays, which can take a second or two. Playing a sound before the waveform has loaded plays the previously loaded sound before getting cut off by the currently loaded sound.
Hell yeah. I optimized the wave code, so it will be a lot faster in the next version.

I'm checking this right now.
EDIT: You're opening the stage from the Mugen's stage folder, right? Fixed this case.

Thanks!

Hi VirtuallTek congratulations for the new program, i'm doing tests to convert chars to HI-RES and i see that is missing some important things to convert chars to HI-RES if you add this in the Fighter Factory Studio will let the entire process much more fast see:

1-The option of change the Canvas size of many groups of sprites at the same time ( like you do with the command 'Resize' ) and the option of choose only the groups of sprites that i want change the ''Canvas'' and in the command ''Resize'' too.

2-When possible please add the filter 'XBR 4x' and 'XBRz 4x' in command ''Resize'', this 2 filters is free and is the best that i found until now in the program called 'ImageResizer-r133.exe' for mugen chars.
link of program 'ImageResizer-r133.exe' to you use this two filters in Fighter Factory Studio: http://www.mediafire.com/file/m9ve32gxxsx27rs/

3-And in the 'Image editor' is missing the options of:
'File/open from/Current group'
NEED TO ADD THIS OPTION WILL BE VERY USEFUL 'File/open from/All groups'
NEED TO ADD THIS OPTION WILL BE VERY USEFUL ''File/open from/Select groups'
'File/Save'
'File/Save as/Layers as sprites'
'File/Image/Properties'
NEED TO ADD THIS OPTION WILL BE VERY USEFUL 'File/Image/Properties/All groups'
NEED TO ADD THIS OPTION WILL BE VERY USEFUL 'File/Image/Properties/Select groups'
And when possible leave the other options of the 'Image editor' just as before in Fighter factory 3.

4-And this is not really necessary but if was easy and possible add the command of program 'Doubls_Clsn_Size' link: http://www.mediafire.com/file/qkjbt5ndg1f62bx/
Because when we convert char to HI-RES we need convert the file '.air' of char 2x times in this program, and if this option be avaible in the program will be cool, but do this only if was easy because this part is not really necessary and is easy to do, if this option was not in the fighter factory studio ok.

And offcurse who could support / encourage he in: https://www.patreon.com/virtualltek because he deserve the best for bring and share to us this amazing engine.

DPI scaling on Linux seems to have no effect. I tried 0.5 all the way up to 10 and I saw no differences.

Sound preview cuts off for some sounds in Linux (sound 2,1 in cvsfelicia I sent you is a good example) and it's slower than last time. If you need me to record a video, let me know.

I need to know exactly what you do in the "menus" to make it crash.

Do you restarted FF after changing DPI scaling? It only takes effect on fresh launch.  It changes the environment variable we talked in private just like export does, so should work. For me it works, but I will double check this.

I optimized the wave viewer (in future versions will be an editor), it's a lot faster on 3.5.1. About sound cut, I will check. It cuts off in all sounds on macOS, for sure is a Qt bug, so likely I will need to replace Qt sound output by some other one that works.

Thanks!

Yes, I restarted after each time I changed the DPI scale.

@OldGamer:
Options -> Interface -> Preset: Classic

Fighter Factory 3 uses the Classic interface by default, Studio does not. All you have to do is change it.

If you want a mixture of interfaces, you can modify the .lua files in the presets folder, I think. Take a look at them to figure out which buttons need to be added (until the documentation updates to include that information).

Version 3.5.1 is online. I will continue releasing patches if necessary until the next major or minor build.

Thank you very much!

Can confirm the sound player is better at least on Linux! There's still the odd DPI issue, though. Syntax highlighter no longer picks up "Heavy" as an issue for AnimType, however it still shows in the error list.

BindToTarget says it expects 3 parameters, but got 2; however it does have a default for the 3rd parameter which is Foot IIRC.

For SuperPause, it says it expects 2 parameters for sound, however this is completely valid:
Code:
sound = -1

For a StateDef, it says this is invalid:
Code:
;----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
; DEAD SAND
[Statedef 1106]
type = ScreenBound
movetype = AssertSpecial
physics = Null
ctrl = 0
anim = 1

[State 1106, DestroySelf]
type = DestroySelf
trigger1 = !Time

Yet once again, thanks to MUGEN's busted parser, it is valid (I do this just to mess with people lol).

It also says "Unknown parameter potarget" when I do this:
Code:
[State 147, BindToTarget]
type = BindToTarget
triggerall = NumTarget
triggerall = Time <= 1
trigger1 = Target, StateNo = 148
pos = 0,(target, Const(Size.head.pos.y)-7)

  • A frame here, a pixel there.

When attempting to run FF, I get this Windows message, which I am able to dismiss and that lets FF open. However it then crashes when the file browser appears after selecting "Open."

I might know what that is, and it's not a pretty solution for VirtuallTek: you need to sign your code.

I say it's not pretty because the only way to do that is to buy what's called a code-signing certificate. The cheapest I know of is from DigiCert. The reason I know this is because we had to get around that Smartscreen crap for Windows 8 at work and that was how we managed to solve that for our customer, because Smartscreen and Norton go apeshit if your code isn't signed.

If you want, I can donate the cost to you because it's important to have as a Windows dev these days. Yes, it's total bullshit, I agree, but... we have to do it.

EDIT: Could try this, too https://www.globalsign.com/en/code-signing-certificate/code-signing-tool/
