chrisnash - 2007-08-01 7:20 PM Does reViSiT play normally after restarting playback? Is it simply the act of inserting the order list entry during playback that produces the problem, or does it happen always at Bar 156? Chris
revisit plays normally after restart of playback. the act of inserting an orderlist entry after an empty orderlist row, has a 50/50 chance that the next pattern the orderlist plays, will only start playing the first row, and looping it. its a very cumbersome bug.
it either happens that it starts stuttering the first row, or it doesnt. i couldnt figure out why it happens sometimes and why it doesnt happen sometimes. its pretty hard to diskwrite songs when you cant be sure that after a empty orderlist row, that the next pattern will play properly instead of just stuttering the first row.

Before playback, reViSiT precomputes the playlist - an internal ordering of *row* playback that accounts for not only the order, but pattern effects (e.g. Cxx, SBx) and pattern lengths. These calculations take enough time so that if they are done during playback, they can cause stuttering and even instability - so they are generally not. However, you can force a recomputation at any time, by pressing Ctrl-I. Please let me know if you suffer any problems with forcing recomputation.
