Software Showcase / Re: Flash-based module player released!!

A note to those looking at this page and cannot find the player: i've lost the domains i had at the time. The player can now be found at my github page at and a demo with some random modules at The playback is improved since my initial post and i've added optional stereo mode.

No. I might add stereo support at some point, but since it'll need to generate double the wave data, it'll also need double the time to preload the music :-).

In other news, i've made a nice simple tool to preview MODs in FMP :-).

Since FMP isn't 100% accurate to MODs (and due to the way it works, it'll never be), i thought it would be a nice idea to make an easy-to-use tool that plays MODs via FMP so musicians who make (or modify) MODs to be used with FMP have an easy method to play their MODs.

EDIT: also i made this tool to convert binary files to haXe source code so you can embed MOD files in SWF files an play them using FMP's playBytes function. If you're making a Flash game for licensing to flash game portals, having a single SWF file without external dependencies is pretty much a requirement for most portals.

I made a new version and new site for the player too :-)

New stuff in 1.1:
* Improved MOD playback.
* Expanded the pitch table to include non-standard octaves (some MODs use them).
* Repeating in both ModPlayer and DynSound (thanks to oNyx's patch!)
* A liiitle more "documentation" on the site.
* More stuff i don't remember right now :-P

Bad Sector: the link you posted... it seems it doesn't work. And anyway I'm not really interested to write a Mod/S3M player, I want to play XM instead...

As you wish :-). However most concepts are the same, so i recommend you to read this doc even if it talks about mod. I uploaded it in my own server, so this will work.

You may want to check this out, its for MOD format but the idea behind periods and such is the same. Also as suggested here (or was it in another file - dunno, i read a lot of mod docs these days while implementing my flash player), its better to make a "MOD" player first and then move to more advanced formats (and personally i would suggest S3M before trying XM).

Forget about the problems, i managed to fix them :-).

Here is the player and the code, finally i managed to implement most commands and test them with MilkyTracker (which is accurate enough). A few commands (three to be exact) aren't implemented yet, one of them will be soon. But all of them are rare and most modules play without problem. Also commands about panning are ignored because there is nothing to pan - the playback is in mono.

The player is written in haXe but it should be easy to use it with the normal Flash IDE (by generating the ActionScript 3 code with haXe's -as3 flag). The code is licensed under the zlib license, so you can use it without obligations.

Have fun and tell me if you find any issues (with info on how to fix, if you know :-)) or if you use this player somewhere.
