Forum and Twitter page not up to date

Hi developers and admins. As a regular visitor to your web page, forum and twitter page I noted that lately the latter give the impression of not being up to date concerning its content. Specifically: In the forum section "General discussion", the thread "0.4.11 Testing" is prominently pinned althou...

How to restore system after installing problematic driver

My question to those testers with more experience is: Is there a way to restore a broken configuration without having to re-install ReactOS from scratch? Background: Testing drivers on real hardware is a very time consuming thing, because if something fails I cannot just revert to an earlier VM stat...

Re: Your most wanted feature for the next Hackfest?

I'm turning this into a general forum post where we can just discuss features that we want to see happen in Hackfest LONG in advance. I hope I am not misunderstanding the idea of this announcement, but this reads like an invitation for a feature wishlist discussion. If so, my top-most wishes are (w...

Re: Questions about ROS compatibility mode

Thanks a lot for the explanation. This really helped.
Now I know that there is no point experimenting with combinations of several OS modes, for instance.

Improve Newbee testing help page experience

Hi website/wiki maintainers, driven by my own experiences as new ROS tester and by other forum threads which show similiar issues I suggest following in order to improve the website experience for new people willing to take ROS for a test ride: There should be a better introduction/landing page for ...

Re: Wiki: reCAPTCHA V1 IS SHUTDOWN

Hi Tobias, I am happy that you are willing to help tesing. I do the very same. I know by myself that finding the right answers in the project pages is not easy, often you need to know the exact name of what you are looking for in order to find it. (That's why I chose to bookmark all important pages ...

Re: Questions about ROS compatibility mode

Thanks for pointing me to this page. However, the screenshot is from Win10, not ROS and the descriptions on this page only partly matches what I see in ROS 0.4.8/0.4.9. It is no clear whether the listed "shims" apply to the version dropdown (shown in the screenshot) or the list available in "Change ...

Questions about ROS compatibility mode

ROS 0.4.8 gained support for a compatibility mode, however I have not found information about how to use it correctly. I am aware that the current state of implementaion will not fix all issues with non-working software or drivers but at least I want to be able to use it correctly in cases where it ...

Re: 0.4.9 Testing

I have finished my usual tests of some included and additional software in VBox 5.1 with ROS 0.4.9 RC32. Results are at the top of my usual thread: https://reactos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=15811. Did not find any clear regressions.

Re: Additional software tests

I have done my usual tests of some included and additional software in VBox 5.1 with ROS 0.4.9 RC32. Did not find any clear regressions. No noteworthy changes except that Flash Player and Adobe Reader 11 can be installed via the online installer again (as in 0.4.6) thanks to the rollback of the guil...

Re: Additional software tests

I have updated the original post to include the results for ReactOS 0.4.8. In short, there were no significant differences. There were no improvements and no regressions in terms of software compatibility compared to 0.4.7 for the tested software stack on VBox. (Maybe more would be possible if I kne...

Re: Question about Audio !

Hi Adcock,

I found sound working in VirtualBox with the AC-97 driver and documented this on my How-To page here:

Don't expect sound on real hardware, though.

Re: Additional software tests

Today I updated the above software compatibility list for ROS 0.4.7 release. I did not check every software version, but most of them. Unfortunately there wasn't any progress specifically regarding the compatibility of the software tested by me. On the contrary, I encountered two regressions: Adobe ...
