Bug Report Archive / Re: Latency?

Hello again

Tried JACK but in the QJackCtl I can't connect outputs to inputs, cliking and cliking but no connection :). Tried to refresh it and connect again but nothing happens.
The only fonts I can change are the pattern fonts, I wondered if there is a way to change the "menu" font and to be specific the font size in the font-face section. The font-face changes but the size is still the same.

As for SDL I wanted to ask you about the update but I think I just grab a copy of the source ;)

Weird bug with latency. I don't think it's possible to control the latency in SDL, AFAIK it's fixed but I could be wrong (not a day to day programmer). The thing is changing buffer which is directly connected to resulting latency to maximum, changes probably the sleep function of the whole loop which in a weird manner results in a CPU hogging -> GUI hogging. Changing it to mininum doesn't hog the CPU however it affects the latency itself so the 512B-1024B buffer setting is somewhat safe. Looking at Skale tracker latency is set to fixed at max, other similar programs using SDL are talking to other libs like OpenAL  which is nice, or to ALSA directly which is PITA in a sense of programming.
Another problem is with JACK. In my case it doesn't get zombified, it just doesn't work at all :) No sound.
And lastly, is there a way to change the fonts in "menu"? Changing font-face doesn't do a thing. Is the GUI fixed size no matter what the resolution is? :)
