Hi all,

Has anyone compiled for Windows a version of SM5 that has the PacDrive support built in? I don't know how to do the compiles myself (when I've tried I've had a lot of issues) so I've had to rely on an old version of SM5 that someone had compiled a long while back to have PacDrive support. If someone has a current version, could I please get a copy?

Thanks in advance.

Razor my friend, you are a legend. I can't seem to get it to work though. I've put the .dll file in the Program directory and changed my Preferences.ini lights driver line to:
LightsDriver=PacDrive

But the lights aren't working, they just stay on. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

Afaik, the dll is already present in the download, under Program folder. Look like the file is absent.

Try setting it to PacDrive32
Nvm. The correct setting is indeed."PacDrive".

Gotta update it soon.

Hmm, I'm not sure why it's not working then. Maybe I've got the wrong dll? I've been using the one I used to use for the older version of SM5 that I was running. Though I doubt the dll would have changed.

Let me know if you work out anything, I'll keep looking through stuff online to see if I need to trigger it differently.

PacDrive support has been integrated into SM5 for a very long time. You need C++/Release/PacDrive32.dll from the SDK in the Program folder of StepMania.
http://www.ultimarc.com/PacDriveSDK.zip

Source: I'm the one that added it. it works fine in 5.0.12.

I have that dll in the Program folder, but I'll try downloading the one you just put the link for and I'll see if it works. Thanks for that ZTS.

EDIT: Still not working, I'd say that it could be something that the build might be missing possibly? It's detecting that I've put something for LightsDriver because I can't activate the debugger for the lights (which happens when you set that line). But it's not turning off the lights when you launch the exe and it's not doing the light patterns at all - they just stay on.

Might have to get a new compile of the game if possible. Sorry to be a pain!

I can't say that I know much about using a PacDrive (personally I use the SextetStream lights driver for my sm cabinet's lights), but have you checked Stepmania's log.txt file yet? There might be some kind of clue in there as to why things aren't working.

Well this is odd... LightsDriver_PacDrive files are missing in 5.1-new, but they're on the master branch of StepMania (5.0.12). I guess that explains why your lights weren't working in the first place.

The log.txt will say unknown lightsdriver if it's missing, so check that.

Unrelated: I made an issue on the SM github, maybe it will be added back, maybe it won't, so keep trying razorblade's build.

My link posted above is a custom SM5.1 build with PacDrive support. I used the same PacDrive source files I used for custom SM5.0.12 which worked for some users before.

I think the files can be added to 5_1-new if you want to submit a pull request. This response has some details.

It would still require someone to then build SM5.1 from source because a new formal release is probably not happening ever anytime soon.

I'm getting way, way off track here (apologies to the rest of the posters), but I produce SM windows and Linux builds for my discord server whenever there is a change in the repo that adds some relevant feature.
