English key+note names are "Unknown"

Trouble with Synthesia, your keyboard, or adapter? Think you found a bug?
When describing problems, always mention your OS and game version (shown at the bottom of the title screen).
  • If your keyboard has USB or MIDI ports, there is a tremendously high chance (>99%) it will work with Synthesia. See what you'll need on the keyboards page.
  • If you have a Logitech webcam and can't get your keyboard/adapter to work, see this post.

As per title. Everything else works correctly but the keys on the keyboard and falling notes are labelled "Unknown" for my "Maple Leaf Rag" midi. I can play through the entire song just fine so theres no question it picks up the correct notes. The names in that song used to come up fine a few months ago until i updated synthesia recently. Attached is the midi file. When I attempt to screenshot, it takes a screen of my desktop instead (in either DX9 or OpenGL mode).

Strange: that song really does contain invalid time-signature events. One old MIDI editor I use simply decided to throw them away. Another MIDI utility I used on it actually crashed!

Still, seeing "Unknown" isn't very friendly. Try out the dev preview I just posted and it should be fixed. :D
