Summary0001173: SetNotifyWindowMessage Failes on initialization. Causes voice recognition to fail to initialize.
DescriptionWhen using the -voicer extension in 3.6.9rc7dot9 there is no error message, but voice recognition does not function. However in a build that Karajorma posted on the forums (presumably a CVS build) topic link:,43912.0.html
an error message did crop up. The message was simple: Failed to SetNotifyWindowMessage and then a second "Voice recognition failed to init" and voice recognition functionality is lost.
TagsNo tags attached.

The init call probably just needs to be moved to below the screen setup (after os_set_title()) in freespace.cpp. I change various things to fix a bunch of bugs in the window handling, so it works a little differently now. The system may just not be in a fully sane state until after the graphics subsystem is initted.

Try moving that code block in question and let me know if it helps any.

Issue resolved. No errors on startup and voice recognition works as intended. Good work, Taylor! =D

Assigning to karajorma so that maybe he'll commit the fix already and resolve this bug (3.6.9 is only a few short days from release ya know). ;)
