NEWS - Redoing all the scenarios

For the next alpha test I'm redoing yet all the scenarios and will change a few things.
I plan to make a very special "1-Welcome in OrbiterSound - launch  me first" but I'll see that later.

Yet this one might surprise you... and your neighborough if you pump up the volume  :)

Okay, Dan. I get it. Now I'll have to go and re-invest in my Surround Sound 5.1 (or 7.1) with the Super Sub-bass speakers. My Landlord is gonna throw me out for sure.

Not really a NEWS  :)

The external sound for the demo scenario "Atlantis launch" was okay (taken from a real launch boosted and modified) Now, the internal cockpit sound come nicely also with real cockpit com of STS-135...

Hello Dan,

How about your updating of OrbiterSound ? If you have more things to test, I could do it with pleasure. Anyways, all my congratulations for your hard work :top:

NEWS - alpha test planned for tuesday

I just finished to clear a difficult bug about 3d sound cone and > mach 1 and I continue to fix and update the old 4.0 scenarios (the "mach one" revealed the bug).
I still have a hell of work and would like to "stabilize" a version before releasing another alpha test. There was a lot of changes and small fix since the last one and I must carefully test those changes.

So, sorry it will take sometime... maybe 4 day, one week, I don't know.

NEWS - no news, yet good news

I've done a lot of small corrections, improvements, bug correction, wrote some new features, I'm almost 8 hours per day on it. Now I'll add some new feature and correct as much as I can until I have something solid and release a new alpha within one week or shorter.

A cool news *might* be released here within this time, stay tuned...  :siffle:

Scrchhhh .. over !

Woooo!

I just thought I'd check here after... months if not years and what do I see?! Excellent :)

I periodically get the itch to re-install Orbiter, but without the Sound and the Arrow it just isn't worth it.

Thank you Dan!

NEWS - The 1% and the 99%

Some say that the last 1% of a program take 99% of the development time.
It's not entirely true, but it's not completely false either and we are more in the 4% yet.

I'm not working on a main feature actually but I'm fixing a lot of small one.
Scenario, doc, help text, music, bug, sound, I can work 30mn on a things and six hours on another.

Still, it's coming up nicely  :explique:
Sorry to the alpha tester for the long delay, I'll contact you by MP when the next alpha will be ready.

Anyway, good news: the final release will be a Tuesday !



PS: Feature added lately:
Online update check: every 20 day if you launch Orbiter there will be a check to see if there is a new OrbiterSound version. Usually I avoid frequent release because everyone end with a different version but with this new feature it will not be a problem and I can issue new version with small fix or add minor things.
Note: it's a simple silent check of an online text file at start of Orbiter, no external program or background task running and you can also set the delay between check and even stop it completely. This feature is not yet tested, I don't know if the firewall will trigger on most closed configuration, we'll see (port 80 http)


My actual todo list:

If this continues, we have to rename the Orbiter Space flight simulator to Orbiter Tuesday flight simulator   :)

Dan - thank you so much for coming back and for working on these updates - for free. Like many, I come back to Orbiter every few years (and have to, of course, re-learn EVERYTHING each time). I, for one, can't wait to have the Arrow Freighter work in Orbiter2016! I've also long been a fan of FSPassengers. You've given me hundreds of hours of entertainment over the years.

Two questions:

1) Do you think your time will allow you to eventually update the Arrow and UCGO?
2) Do you have a venmo or patreon or something that I can contribute to?
