Hall of Shame / Dj SM
« on: October 20, 2019, 23:01:25 »
An archive member tried to upload a couple of files by an artist called "Dj SM", and most of them triggered the dupe filter. For a good reason:

djsm_toy_play.it  -  znm-joy.it (64018)
djsm_arctic_sea.xm  -  baltic_beach_.xm (141228)
djsm_genetic.xm  -  hallucinogenetic.xm (141077)
djsm_sonicflyer.xm  -  blue_aura.xm (146726)
djsm_valerie.xm  -  virtual_valerie.xm (151924)
djsm_immortal.mod  -  03.mod (80424)
djsm_stein.s3m  -  linen.s3m (71078)
djsm_spectr.xm  -  night_hallucination.xm (141118)
djsm_zer0_cool.xm  -  knock_your_brains.xm (134426)
djsm_party.mod  -  nasty.mod (67497)
djsm_brainless.xm  -  brainless_3.mod (114778)
djsm_space_track.xm  -  space_whale.xm (143646)
djsm_atillium.xm  -  magical.xm (138391)
djsm_minitouch_c.mod  -  minumaluz.mod (88040)
djsm_clematic_c.xm  -  aroma.xm (153788)
djsm_still_honor_c.it  -  independent.it (158387)
djsm_intro_craft_c.it  -  intronicum.it (166540)
djsm_leave_c.xm  -  yellow_leaves.xm (151565)

All of these are exact copies of existing songs on the archive, with the only modification being the sample texts being removed/edited and Dj SM slapping their name on the tune. The songs come from such a wide variety of styles and skills, it should be obvious that they were not made by a single person.

There were a few more uploads of Dj SM's stuff that I couldn't identify, but they are most likely ripped as well, so they have been rejected alongside the stuff mentioned above.

If you come across any other modules by Dj SM, like this one, they are most likely stolen as well.

News / New server; Upgrading to PHP 7
« on: January 12, 2019, 19:27:33 »
:breakpage:
:breakhead:
Now that official security support for PHP 5 has ended, it's time to move forward: The Mod Archive now runs on a host with PHP 7. One visible improvement for you is that the site loads faster now. However, as with almost every software upgrade, there are some gotchas, and while we tried to test the site as much as possible, it could be that there are some things that are broken after the transition to PHP 7. Most of the time, this becomes manifest in a blank page. Please let us know here if you come across any such problems.

While doing this upgrade, the links to all RSS feeds (recent modules, recent featured modules, and the feeds for the news and competition forums) have been fixed as well.

All of these upgrades have been made by possible by the friendly helping hands at SceneSat who provide the new infrastructure for running the website. We are also thankful to the people at Blix Solutions where the old server was located. To keep the archive alive and running on the new server, please consider donating towards our hosting fund!

News / Updated online player: Now faster and with OPL support!
« on: December 23, 2018, 17:15:18 »
:breakpage:
:breakhead:
With today's release of OpenMPT 1.28, libopenmpt (the library that is used for our online module player) has been updated to support FM-synthesized instruments in S3M and MPTM files. Now you can play those AdLib classics directly on the website!

The updated player also makes use of WebAssembly, so on modern browsers it should be much faster than the old version.

News / Mod Archive is back
« on: September 08, 2018, 14:28:04 »
:breakpage:
:breakhead:
Just quick note on what happened on Wednesday: A power outage at the data center caused the server to not turn on again. When it went back on, an incorrect network configuration prevented it from being accessible over the internet. All of this is sorted out now.

Website News Archive / Torrent tracker is back

I am bewildered and angry. For years, it seems like ripping has not been a big problem in the tracking scene, but this week alone I have spotted two uploads from people claiming someone else's work as their own by removing the original composer's credits from the module texts and replacing them with their own, and I have noticed that such actions have been more frequent in recent months.

This is not very smart, it's actually thieving and we have ways of automatically finding such rips. Don't be one of those people and don't believe you can fool the system. Be honest and make your own music.

News / Online player now with AdLib support
« on: May 30, 2018, 00:01:25 »
:breakpage:
:breakhead:
A relatively little-known feature of the S3M feature, synthesized OPL (AdLib) instruments, is now available in the online player thanks to recent developments in libopenmpt. Only few S3M files make use of this feature, but now they are more accessible to everyone, which may motivate more people to try this file format feature in one of their next tracks.
If you have no idea where to start, here are a few example songs that make use of OPL instruments:
StarPort BBS Introtune by Purple Motion
And this is UltraSound by Manwe
Rotagilla by Manwe

Enjoy!
