When i started roasting with playback option i saw some strange things:
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.
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.
@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?
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.
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.
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”.
