Help Support Topics Archive / KEYGEN-FM link returned a 404
« on: January 26, 2021, 14:44:38 »
I just noticed recently when browsing the TMA's Sites we like... section where the KEYGEN-FM was found, it returned a 404 (ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED).

Any devs/mods that could address this issue, please let me know.

Hear me out on this:

Katherine and I have hosted some streams where we play some of TMA's modules as a part of Test Streams in the couse of a few weeks. Test Streams can be found here. We'll also include a TMA disclosure on how we handle the playback during the streams. Excuse the font face in the page, whoops. :P As it is my responsibility to host such modules into the streams, I'll handle the hard stuff (permissions and such), which may fall under Section 4 of TMA Terms & Disclaimer.

As stated in the disclosure (and the main point of this topic), there ARE some modules that are detected by the service's copyright system. If I'm correct, such identifications are attributed to the module's samples (please excuse my somewhat-aggressive approach on this matter). However, this topic doesn't apply to modules which are re-created from scratch (in short, a remix), with samples that are NOT identical to the original ones published before them. (I have made one before, admittedly, but upon broadcast, there seems to be no issues; it is because of manual re-creation with different samples that really sound different than the original.)

I hate to see the modules being disappeared as this is an outstanding archive to begin with, but I also hate to see lawsuits and copyright claims coming from all directions that will ruin the reputation of this platform.

Now how would that relate to the topic in any way?

During one of my earlier private playbacks, I have stumbled upon this module file that I might have to focus on. Upon closer inspection (which involves downloading the module and inspecting the samples), I began researching the origins of such samples. This is the original one that is the exact equivalent to that module file. I can agree this is a remix, but like I said, it HAS to be re-created [from scratch] and NOT use the samples that sound exactly alike, which falls under Section 4 of TMA Terms & Disclaimer and Section 1 of TMA Upload Terms and Agreement.


I'm open to discussions on how this will turn out. Though I'm not sure what category this topic would befall to, I feel like the Support Category would be the haven for every topic I may have in mind.

Keep tracking and stay sane, people. ;D

There is an MO3 of the same track already in the archive, however, it is rendered unplayable via the native libopenmpt player. I've recently had the module file of that track (and yes, it's the same name but in IT format) that is currently in the upload area.

This is the MO3 rendition of the module.

I just wanted to know what had caused this to happen in the first place, and any given feedback on how MO3s will be impacted in the future.

But seriously, I've been digging around for some modules to take some inspiration, and I was intrigued that one of them modules were having its, uhh, 'doppelgängers' if you will. Some of them have the internal text changed and under a different filename, but they still play the same.

Any moderators and/or members who would want to reach out, please do.

PS. The first one on the list in the attached image is what I presume the original copy.
