Oh, OK, thanks. I’m surprised and concerned that such a serious fault should have made it into a so-called ‘stable’ release.
Setting SDL_AUDIODRIVER=directsound does indeed seem to fix the fault, but that raises its own issues. Can I do it programmatically (e.g. via a hint; I don’t want to have to launch my app via a batch file)? Why isn’t it the default? Are there any downsides?
That’s not documentation, it’s source code! Call me old-fashioned, but if a feature isn’t documented it isn’t usable. Updating the docs should be an essential element of any new release.
