[Alpha] LR V3.5

Post by [senpai] kevans on Wed Jan 11, 2017 8:51 pm

Hey. It's been awhile, hasn't it?

Let's cut to the chase. I haven't been so successful porting the LR engine to other platforms. No clue why I had such bad luck, but that's not going to deter me. So what I have done was made an Adobe Air wrapper that does not require you to install adobe air to run, which then imports the .swf and runs it. Taking advantage of this API has really got me smashing my head in to get things to work, as has not been as straight forward as I hoped, but if things do go my way, I will have a working build on par with the current versions. In hopes to compliment their abilities. I will provide an alternative air installer that does require adobe air to be installed.

Features:


  • Automatic updater! Unless specified, you will never have to re-download the latest update. Updater runs each time you launch the program. Keep in mind that the launcher isn't finished yet, and may have to be re-downloaded a few times to take advantage of future features. (this has not been tested ob macOS, please report to me on this!)
  • SOL Importer! Yes! That's right! Import your sol and it will work! However, saving has been nixed. See below for details


And that's about it. It's still pretty much 3.4.x, but I really really needed an audience to test these things. Downloads:

macOS: https://www.dropbox.com/s/45nrukntekdvczp/LR%20V3.5macOS.zip?dl=0 Does not work.
Windows: https://www.dropbox.com/s/q4rzmbplv7865p6/LRV3.5Win.zip?dl=0

Planned features:


  • Improved saving. This build does still take advantage of your appdata folder, however thanks to adobe air, I am capable of making it possible to save individual tracks anywhere you like. They won't be in some fancy format, just pure straight sols. If someone does manage to figure out how to save for whatever reason, you can find your sol in the appdata folder under LRV35. If you can not locate this file, search for "as2_launch_data.sol" or "track_data.sol". Wherever those are, your track will be there. (this isn't a hint that there's a way to save, just mentioning in the off chance)
  • Track recorder. For those of you who managed to try out V4, there was a track recorder. Wasn't that decent as I didn't realize that FLV wasn't as well supported as I thought it was, but it is capable of producing high quality videos. I have a playlist here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLLLsxGACxkK9gbFlMR8WcocOuxjqzTNuD
  • Better editing control. TBH not happy with the way the current versions handle precise controls. Frame by frame editing will be a thing, and other things such as line adjustment and auto-track updating.
  • Support other flash builds. Due to the way the launcher is set up, I can have it set to where if you want it to run 6.2, you can have it run 6.2. Or any other build you want if that's your thing.
  • More personal settings. Scarf color or something.... weeeeeeee.....


Enjoy. I guess.

Heck yeah! Downloading right now. Definitely excited to try it.

Edit: Trying to get it for mac, it says that I can't open it because it may be an incomplete app or something along those lines. Could this be something on my end?

No this is a problem on my end. I need a mac if I want to publish the standalone for OSX.

Can I help at all with the mac part? If you'd like, I could do some mac specific testing/compiling or whatnot. I don't know what it requires, but if you think that's something someone else could do, then let me know.

Or you could just "test" the new macbooks in Best Buy for a while.

Can you show me a screenshot of the folder the program is in? Also what happens when you click "browse"?

Sorry about this, didn't realize this was an issue. I couldn't find anyone to test this on mac for me, so I was flying blind.

Sorry, don't know anything about wine other than what I dabbled with in linux. I'll get back to everyone when I have a proper macOS compiled build.

Added an air installer link. This will allow windows and macOS to run the program, but it does require adobe air to be installed and up to date to allow it to install.

Auto updating is one of the most important features ever implemented into a desktop version. Possibly the most important.

New AIR version still doesn't appear to work on my mac. 2013 MBP, OSX 10.11. This is what I see when I open it.

New track fails to work as well? Also I need that screenshot of the folder it's located in.

The adobe air installer seems to not want to play nice with other problems, so you're not the only one. You are going to have to wait on a standalone mac build, or if you have a windows machine somewhere you can use that.
