I’ve discovered a crash bug in both the stock Aru version, and KasSoft’s custom version. Running the program, and pointing it to a stripped down copy of GTAIV works fine, but while browsing the audio, it randomly crashes when the “Auto Play on Select” is checked. It works fine under XP, but not W7. I have a portable stripped down structure of GTAIV with just theĀ  ‘pc/audio/sfx’ structure, and the GTAIV.exe present, as Spark IV needs it. I’ve removed the rest, as at the moment I’m interested in the audio dialog only, to make a massive .NET GTAIV soundboard.

I still need to debug it, I need to run it through my programming testbed, or get Kassie to look at it for me, I should have more tomorrow. I’ve reported it to Aru at Google Code, awaiting his response.

      Not a problem, darkdevil! The bug still hasn’t been fixed as far as I’m aware, and I was the one who reported it on the SparkIV Google Code page. There HAS however been a version of SparkIV for the new Episodes From Liberty City for PC, but as yet I’ve not tried it on Windows 7, only XP! Keep your eyes open, I’ll do an article on it too once I’ve tried it!
