I’ve just upgraded from 4.13.04 to 4.17.05.

The only trouble I have is with the mp3 output plugins (and my own). It crashed inside System->init, and it is reproducible with the [i:3i67o418]useplugins[/i:3i67o418] example by selecting ‘FMOD MP3 Output’.

Is it a bug from the 4.17.05 release or my app ?

It looks like there was a bug in the mp3 output plugin, there was a null pointer dereference.

You can fix it yourself or wait for the next release. The fix is as follows:

outputmp3_state *state = output->plugindata;
DWORD dwRead=0;
DWORD dwWrite=0;
DWORD dwDone=0;
DWORD dwFileSize=0;
BE_ERR err;

     Add the below code for the fix.
if (!state)
    return FMOD_OK;


This bug surfaced due to the fact that the behaviour of FMOD changed recently, it now calls the close callback on the plugin before init.

Cool, I will try to fix my own output plugin with that.


EDIT: Works like a charm now 😀
