Roastime 3.4.1 playback sucks

In the older versions the playback function was not perfect, but it works. In the latest version the playback sucks. It does not synchronize, most of the time you cannot switch it on because “the roast is already started”.

Please repair this feature.

Does anyone else find that it often won’t start on the correct settings despite being in “playback” mode? For example, if my playback recipe calls for initial settings of F1 and D5, it will launch playback using local default settings for F and D. If it’s F2 and D7 on the bullet that’s what it starts the new roast with regardless of what’s being “played back”. This can be avoided by remembering to locally set launch settings for beginning Drum Speed to one that matches the drum speed used in the roast you wish the re-create, however you can’t set a default launch F speed of 1 for example, and the only way to achieve an actual launch at a Fan Speed of 1 straight out of the gate is to create a recipe. Anyway, it would be great if playback just actually started with the Drum and Fan settings actually used during the roast in question.

Hey @peter425p - Can you detail a bit more on what you mean it doesn’t synchronize? I don’t think there were any changes in 3.4.1 vs any recent older version for playbacks. There currently is no guard against starting a playback after a roast has started, so I may need some examples of where this is happening so we can properly debug your issue.

@jeffburling436v Thanks for the report. Does it switch to the settings a couple seconds in? It may be a second or so delayed, but it should happen at some point in those initial seconds. If not, we can create a bug and take a look.

No it doesn’t seem to correct itself unfortunately. It seems to only begin on what settings I have set locally on the machine. Playback to begin at P0 and F1 in particular don’t work because you can’t set the bullet to use those upon start. Drum speed behaves similarly and will begin with pre-set local drum speed setting. I am still running 3.4.0 fyi.
