That's the Stable version that Soji said.

CaptainYS's open-source projects uploaded to GitHub
Soji Yamakawa finally uploaded (as promised month ago) his open-source projects to GitHub! Here is mirror in "YSFlight-opensource" repo too. P.S.: Soji, open sources of YSFlight!

Uh, does anyone here realise just what we're looking at here or is it only me?

No, but I'm waiting impatiently for you to tell us it's something exciting...
I want you to say it's YSF's code, but I'm worried you're going to say it's your OpenYS' code. :lol:

I'm not technically inclined. What is this?

Come on Flake, tell us if he actually released part or whole of ysflight's source, or if it's one of his other projects...

Okay look, I haven't delved into the source fully yet.

But it does look to be at the very least a partial release of the YSF Source code - some of the graphics engine and networking side of things. I'll have to take a closer look and see exactly what we're working with here.

This could be big. It could also be nothing...

EDIT: Okay this looks promising. I'm at work - somebody download the full zip please, just in case! :lol:

EDIT2: Ho Ho Ho Soji-clause has come to deliver presents early. Some useful stuff in here.

EDIT3: Okay it's not the full source. It is however some extra little things that are useful none the less - how the YSF sockets work and User Interface / 3d works is all here at least. There's also the sound library. But as for the core code for YSF? Nada. Curses, u2fly. You got my hopes up. We will need to watch that repo though, just in case something comes up.

    Looks like the new version of YSFLIGHT is ready for download from Download.com, but not yet ready from the Japanese site. They may be already in the new year's break. I will announce when both are ready.
    ...
    Thank you for reading YSFLIGHT.COM in 2018. I wish you a happy new year!
P.S.: There no new version of YSFLIGHT for MacOS X and Linux on Download.com...
Soji, open sources of YSFlight! Give us a chance to fix and finish it before 2020!

YSFlight 20181124 (RELEASE) available for download
While there are no official release notes, here are download links (finally) Soon @Eric will add those binary into downloads archive too: At first sight, all bugs that I found in 2017-2018 test versions (and reported to Soji!), not fixed in YSFlight 20181124 release... Shame!

BTW, Soji's repo on GitHub also got few new commits: Hopefully, now I can post reports about YSFlight issues to CaptainYS via Github ;-)

P.S.: @Soji, Make YSFlight Open Source! #MYSFOS

Soji needs to stop saying they're 64 bit for Windows until he compiles for 64 bit. We all know x86 applications run on AMD64

This makes me very sad. The test versions got worse as they came out. Why release something that doesn't work and call it stable?

YSFLIGHT ver.20181124 RELEASE NOTES
Soji Yamakawa wrote: http://ysflight.in.coocan.jp/ysflight/ysflight/e.html

Major changes are as follows.
  • Shadow mapping in OpenGL 2.x version.
  • Particle rendering for clouds and smokes.
  • Particle rendering support in OpenGL 1.1 and Direct3D9 executables.
  • Added Air-Racing mode. Quite primitive, but it at least measures time to pass all check points for you.
  • Massively and automatically tested add-ons. I hope the ones stopped working now works again.
  • Stopped using Windows installer. I am tired of it.
  • SRF models in .FLD file. Older preliminary implementation was checking bounding-box collision, but it now check polygon-by-polygon collision.
  • Separated ILS view and Tower view (I think I made it back to same as previous versions.)
DOWNLOAD from YSFlight Archive: http://ysflight.org/download/

P.S.: Post all YSFlight bug reports to CaptainYS issues tracker on GitHub:

Testing must not be too great if the D3D executable won't run.

YSFlight for Android in development
Soji Yamakawa wrote: http://ysflight.in.coocan.jp/main/e2019.html

    Trying to release a YSFLIGHT Demo for Android, but...

    I have succeeded in running YSFLIGHT kernel on Android several months ago. Alghouth it is not playable yet, I thought to release a demo-only version.

    Since I have a new laptop now, I installed the latest version Android Studio. As expected it could not build from a project set up by an earlier version. Evidently, Google doesn't even running a unit-test of building a project from earlier-version Android Studio. That's the way grad students write programs. (No unit tests)

    This is exactly the major problem of Android development system. It changes. It changes way too often. Now many developers seems to be thinking frequent update is a good thing. It is a huge mistake, as huge as a red-giant about to explode into a supernova. If a software is coming close to its goal, it gets stable and has less-frequent updates. If something needs to update frequently, it is an indication that the thing is bad. It needs update because it is disgusting. From my observation, Android Studio is a crap.

    It's not just Android Studio. Too many too often updates. I want to shout "DON'T UPDATE!!!!" Seriously I want developers to take time to make a secure and robust code that needs fewer updates. Current trend of releasing pre-mature and updating later attitude is toxic. The current trend of software development is quite deplorable. That's not what I learned. People may call me outdated. But, if releasing a crap pre-mature software is the trend, I proudly stay outdated.

    Fix for this problem was easy. I entered the exact error message, and Google took me to the solution. I wish Google didn't create this problem for the first place.

    But, the program was running extremely slow, most likely because I compiled in the debug mode. I changed the configuration to release mode and tried to test on the emulator, then I was told I needed to sign the code. The APK file was indeed named as something-release-unsigned.apk.

    Argh! Code signature again! The main purpose of this code-signature thing used to be for good cause, but now is to decimate individual developers in the name of security. It's evil. I followed an instruction to make my developer signature which presumably won't be accepted by the Play Store. But, it's ok. My plan is to upload my APK here. I have no business with Play Store.

    But, Android Studio keeps trying to run something-release-unsigned.apk and keeps complaining that the APK is not signed. Android Studio could not see somthing-release.apk which d**n Android Studio has just built by itself seconds ago. I force-deleted the something-release-unsigned.apk, but Android Studio only complains file not found.

    The time is up for the day. I reverted all the changes except the fix for the new version Android Studio. Will try again.
P.S.: Soji, open sources of YSFlight!
