FB2k 8.3 spec will not play AAC, Am I stuck with FB2k 8.2?

Had to reload FB2k last week.
I downloaded the 8.3 Special Installer, and installed.
Many titles began to experience "scalefactor bands exceeded" and would not play, then noticed these errors are only on aac files.

I still have the 8.2 special installer, so I installed this version and everything is back to normal.

What am I missing from 8.3 which would support aac codec?
Tempted to re rip these titles into MP3 to avoid future compatibility issues.

RAW AAC means the files have no header, so the decoder can't know what samplerate, channels, encoding mode, etc...are used.

Don't use it. Ever.

I'm interested in getting one of the files that doesn't play though, since I don't remember any changes 0.8.2 -> 0.8.3 that could break this. But it's still a particularly bad idea.
