Allegro 4 (a game library used by EOF) is not compatible with certain EAX emulation features some sound cards use. This problem mostly seems to be associated with Xonar sound cards, and disabling the relevant feature (it may be called something like "GX mode") could fix it. Otherwise, generally whatever sound device is the default sound device at the time EOF launches is the one that will play EOF's sound during that session.

New hotfix is up. Non pro guitar specific changes are as follows:
*Fixed a bug with Feedback import where mid-beat tempo changes would cause a text event to import onto the wrong beat marker.
*Improved the "Imports drop mid beat tempos" handling to only delete the first of consecutive beats inserted due to consecutive mid-beat tempo changes.
*Improved MIDI import's handling of charts with lyrics incorrectly defined as text events, by not importing those events as text events in addition to importing them as lyrics.
*Changed the metronome so that by default, a lower pitched tick sound is used for beats that have a time signature in effect and aren't the first beat in a measure. This can be disabled by unchecking the "Use multi-pitch metronome" checkbox in "Song>Audio cues".
*Changed the slider mechanism to be usable in the keys track, for use in Clone Hero.
*Fixed some bugs in "Beat>Reset offset to zero".
*Added handling for the close window control.
*Returned the CTRL+SHIFT+R shortcut to "Resnap to this grid" and assigned ALT+R to "Resnap auto".
*Improved the error handling for when a custom window size couldn't be set.
*Added CTRL+ALT+Y/G/B shortcuts to toggle cymbal+tom status for selected cymbals in the Phase Shift drum track.
*Improved Guitar Pro import of drum tracks to be able to apply cymbal+tom status to notes imported into the Phase Shift drum track if they are defined to have both a tom and a cymbal at the same place. If the destination of the import includes the normal drum track, a message is displayed warning that cymbal+tom status is only applicable for the Phase Shift drum track.
*Improved file imports so that if a file named drums.ogg, rhythm.ogg or song.ogg is selected as the chart audio, that file is copied to the project folder if necessary and used with its original file name instead of being renamed to guitar.ogg.

Hi, it looks like vocal overdrive isn't loading properly? When I open a project that had it all the phrases become normal, no OD. Hope you can look into this. Thank you!

Would it be possible to add a Clone Hero chart import/conversion feature to EOF? I still use Phase Shift and it sucks having to convert charts to midis in Moonscraper when I don't use that program for anything else.

Oh wow, I just realized that the Feedback import does exactly what I want. My fault for not reading the documentation more closely, but it probably couldn't hurt to change the menu option to make that more clear in-program.

New hotfix is up. Changes are as follows:
Hi, folks. The latest hotfix is in the first post. Changes are as follows:
*Fixed a bug with new Feedback import automatic resnap logic that could prevent notes from importing correctly if they occur after the last tempo change or text event.
*Improved Feedback import to process toggle HOPO and slider markers at the end of each track difficulty's import, reducing the likelihood that long charts with these features will exceed EOF's track note limit and have some of the chart content skipped. If there are too many notes to import from a Feedback chart, EOF will now explicitly warn about this.
*Improved the performance of the secondary piano roll by removing unneeded processing that would cause noticeable lag for charts with many notes and phrases.
*Fixed a bug where lyric line overdrive was saved to the project file, but wasn't applied when the project is loaded.
*Fixed a bug with Feedback import where slider phrases wouldn't correctly combine consecutive slider notes into one phrase if the track has multiple difficulties of notes defined.
*Fixed a bug where using the up/down arrow keys to seek while Feedback input mode is in use would cause the selected lyric's tone to play back even though no transpose occurred.
*Improved the auto-adjust logic for clicking and dragging beat markers to resnap sections and fret hand positions appropriately. This should keep notes and sections/FHPs better synced when changing beat tempos.
*Changed MIDI export logic so that HOPO phrases are written with a length of 1 delta tick instead of 0 ticks if the note has crazy status. This should allow overlapping notes with opposing HOPO statuses without causing issues where notes can get combined during export if the minimum distance between notes is set to 0ms.
*Fixed a bug with MIDI import where the presence of GHL open notes could cause notes to be given a longer sustain than they should have.
*Updated the "Beat>BPM Change" function to update highlighting immediately in case notes lose grid snap, and changed its logic to prevent notes from losing grid snap due to math rounding errors as beat marker timings are recalculated.
*Changed the beat click and drag logic to process the entire chart's content instead of just the beats that are directly affected, to ensure notes won't lose grid snap unexpectedly due to math errors as beat marker timings are recalculated.
*Improved the paste logic so that if copying and pasting lyrics within the same EOF session, and the copied lyrics are in a lyric line, the pasted lyrics have lines marked accordingly.
*Improved the normal save function to restore the active track and seek position if all presented warning prompts to cancel the save are declined.
*Fixed a bug where "Track>Clone>From clipboard" would fail if the cloned track had any lyric lines.
*Added functions to search and replace lyric text (Note>Lyrics>Search and replace) and note names (Note>Name>Search and replace). If the "Match case" option is checked, instances of lyrics/notes are changed if they match the exact upper/lower case for each letter (case sensitive). If the "Retain first letter capitalization" option is checked, the first letter of the replacement text is changed to either upper or lower case to match the instance being replaced (this is so you don't have to worry about capitalization differences for the first letter of the first word in a sentence). If a specific note/lyric was selected by mouse click before search and replace is used, that note's/lyric's text is automatically entered as the text to replace.

New hotfix is up. Non pro guitar specific changes are as follows:
*Fixed a bug with recent Feedback import changes that could cause forced strum notes to import as forced HOPO notes.
*Greatly improved the "Imports drop mid beat tempos" import preference to remove or combine mid beat tempo changes only where it results in a beat being a normal tempo (ie. within 15% of the length of the last complete beat).
*Added a "Render mid beat tempos blue" import preference that, if enabled during Feedback or MIDI import, will keep track of which beats were inserted due to mid beat tempo changes. It will also change the color of anchor markers (the down arrow above the beta line) to blue to make it easy to tell where these beats are.
*Added the ability to author "Disjointed chords" for button guitar/keys tracks, allowing different gems in a chord to have different lengths, for use in Clone Hero. This status can be added/removed by using the functions in the "Note>Clone Hero>Disjointed" menu. Notes that have this status will have the letter D display beneath them in the piano roll, and they will also gain crazy status as a side effect. Feedback and MIDI imports should add disjointed status where appropriate, and MIDI export will write each gem of a disjointed chord with its appropriate length.


Project files that use disjointed status will not open in older builds of EOF, anybody sharing a .eof file between multiple computers will need to have them all update to this release of EOF.

New hotfix is up. Non pro guitar specific changes are as follows:
*Updated copy/paste, clone to/from and auto adjust logic to preserve disjointed status.
*Updated the save logic to not warn about gems in the same disjointed chord being too close together to enforce the minimum note distance.
*Added a "Save separate Guitar Hero files" export preference that will specify whether ghwt_drum.array.txt, notes_gh3.mid and note_ghwt.mid are created when the project is saved.
*Corrected an issue where the new MIDI import logic (for handling disjointed chords) could cause some notes to incorrectly detected as auto HOPO notes until fixup logic redetects that they are not auto HOPOs.
*Updated MIDI import to treat "PART GUITAR COOP GHL" and "PART RHYTHM GHL" as GHL tracks.
*Updated MIDI import to read the GHL track difficulty tags ("diff_bassghl" and "diff_guitarghl").
*Updated MIDI export to write the GHL track difficulty tags even when PART RHYTHM or PART GUITAR COOP are renamed to define the GHL guitar or bass track.
*Added a message that is displayed at the end of MIDI/Feedback import if the "Imports drop mid beat tempos" preference is enabled and leads to any beats being removed during the import, which could affect the grid snapness of notes.
*Changed the border color for selected lyrics' note rectangles to red instead of white to make them more visible.
*Fixed a bug with the recent Feedback import logic (to process toggle HOPO and slider markers at the end of each track difficulty's import) that could cause notes/chords with W3 to be deleted from charts with multiple difficulties.

Hi guys, my EOFf1.8RC12 is not responding when I try to import a file (MIDI or Chart) and when I try to create a new song. I do not know what's happening, the program simply freezes.

My operating system is Windows 10. 64-bit

That right there could be your issue, as buggy as Windows 10 still is and has been since launch.
