Since yesterday I suddenly have a very weird issue where all versions of Stella (except 6.0) are becoming mostly completely silent. E.g. in E.T you cannot hear the title music, but some cracking sound when the ship is landing.


After some research, it turns out that there seems to be a Stella incompatibility with SDL2 2.0.6 and newer on Windows (10). Reverting to SDL2 2.0.5 (or older) fixes the problem. Now we wonder why this issue did not occur earlier to me and why no one else has reported it.


Has anyone ever experienced the same issue?
