Anyone here still uses the old v2? I know folks from http://tagboardeffects.blogspot.rs/ still do.

I'm finishing up importer, so we can open v2 files in the latest v3 version hoping we can finally retire v2 for good :) Importer is not perfect, since component set is not exactly the same, but it should work fine in most cases.

If there's anyone who has v2 files let me know, so we can try and see how successful it is in real world.

Cheers,
Bane

Hi bancika,

First let ma thank you for your work on DIYLC. My knowledge of electronics is very basic but DIYLC has enabled me to design PCBs to build my own effects pedals, and I would never have been able to do it without this awesome piece of software.

I just got back into tinkering with FX circuits after a hiatus of a few years. On an old hard drive I found some circuits I had designed with DIYLC v2 beta. I tried to import them with DIYLC Gen3 v40.0 which I had just installed but to no avail; I kept getting the error "Could not open file XXX. Check the log for details."

Fortunately I also found the .zip with DIYLC v2 beta on the same HD so I was able to use it to open these files. But maybe it's a bit early to retire v2.x for people with old files not compatible with the newer versions ?

Tiny bug on 3.40.0: The default project font reverts to Tahoma if I ever undo with Ctrl+Z.

Keep up the good work ;)
