Playback rost

When i started roasting with playback option i saw some strange things:

  1. When i go to roast that i want to replicate, i go for playback option and roastime ask me do i want overlay?? If i press cancel on that window playback is not working.
  2. If i press okay, i got overlay and playback in roasting on the left side of the screen. Everything work fine until end of the roast. When i want to start another batch i lost playback (only overlay stay) and its not working… I need to go again to recipe and start playback again… Its boring in b2b roasting that i need to start playback over and over again.

Why the hell i need to have overlay and playback in same thime… On roastime 3 i had only playback and it was working like charm.

Before roastime 4 update it was everything ok…

I had the same complaint and @Bab Bruce pointed out that there is a setting in the “edit settings” for Roast Time where you can toggle the rcipes for single use.

When i change that setting problem still persists…
Also my question is why i need to start overlay if i start playback?

I found one more bug, roastime dont save theme settings (change colors). Every time i run program i need to set again prefered colors.

Aillio need to fix this bugs…

I made a mistake.

The switch setting in the advanced settings is for Recipes not Playback. Sorry.

@banjac88.IORJ This isn’t a bug per say. Playbacks and recipes were made single-use in RT4 on purpose (but I am not sure on the context). We added the config option to disable this behavior for recipes and we can add an option to disable them similarly for playbacks.

Setting playbacks and overlays separately is also not a bug. It offers the flexibility of checking other roasts against it during playback. Is the action item to enable it not sufficient for you? Maybe if we add the config and you only have to do it once it would be less cumbersome?

We can look into your theme issue.

If i turn on only playback (when it asks for overlay i click cancel) in roast i dont see power/fun/drum bar. So only option is to run overlay and playback together. I remember before in roastime 3 when i turn on playback it also show power/fan/drum bar with changes…
Why not put into roastime to remember playback in b2b roasting, who dont want it he can cancel it in any moment.

I think there may be some confusion. Why are you canceling the overlay? It sounds like you want to enable the overlay. When it asks for overlay, that is not cancelling your playback. It is asking if you want to enable both.

If you cancel overlay and only go with playback you dont have any bar (power, fan, drum) how will playback then work?

In rostime 3 version when you run playback it will show bar and it will automaticly change values. In overlay mod it will also show bar but you change values manualy.

In RT4 the overlay and playback can be enabled at the same time, it is not one or the other. You want to enable both of them (which is what the notification is asking if you want to do).

If i run only playback (without overlay) it will work?
How he knows when need to change settings if overlay is turned off?

I dont understand point why program asks me do i want overlay if playback dont work without it.

Please read again what Matthew is explaining above. You should not cancel overlay.

I understand what he wrote.
I just think, why roastime4 ask me do i want overlay in playback, if playback dont work without it?Just make it when i click playback to start automatic overlay and there is no more confusion.

It works without it. It will control your roaster but it will not show you the reference profile if you click cancel.

Thx for information.

Can you make for future updates that playback stays in b2b roasts? Thx

I would also like the Playback to stay enabled when doing back 2 back roasts.

I got burned again tonight after running my first playback and then starting the second and about halfway through wondering why the fan speed didn’t update and the power setting didn’t update. Then realizing “Oh crap, playbacks are only good for one roast and then you have to reset”.
