Version 1.0.0 out now

After a bit of a hiatus, the MilkyTracker team are pleased to announce a brand-new release - v1.0.0.

This release incorporates the usual bug-fixes and enhancements, as well as some major plumbing work to ensure MilkyTracker will continue to run on modern systems well into the 21st Century.

Please refer to our detailed ChangeLog for details of the changes since the previous release. Head over to the GitHub release page to obtain the OSX/Windows binaries, or the source code to build your own.

Happy tracking!

We are now using GitHub issue tracking, please visit the following URL:

Legacy issues:
  • Failure to load certain non-xm file formats correctly when running MilkyTracker in a directory where it does not have write permission.
    • Need more information
  • Certain hot words in song titles may still cause incorrect module format detection.
    • Just report the cases.
  • Portamento overflow "effect" isn't reproduced.
  • Simultaneous E6x pattern loop and EEy pattern delay replay differs from Ft2.
  • Slight replay differences when volume column effects are used in conjunction with EDx note delay
  • Volume ramping checkbox isn't cleared and dimmed when using Amiga resamplers for playback.
    • Volume ramping is always off for Amiga modes

MilkyTracker Feature Requests / OSX Cocoa port
« on: November 08, 2013, 00:27:37 »
The current OSX port of MilkyTracker uses Carbon, a deprecated API that will eventually be removed from OSX.  Already it is forcing OSX builds to be 32-bit only.

MilkyTracker/OSX needs to be ported to Cocoa - the current recommended API for OSX native applications.

MilkyTracker News / MilkyTracker 0.90.86
« on: November 07, 2013, 00:04:33 »
Milkytracker 0.90.86 is released!

This release incorporates bug-fixes for many of the issues posted in the form, along with some contributed patches, a couple of new features and updates to the user manual.  The source code repository has been migrated to GitHub.

Download it here, and check out the change-log.

It's been 3 years and 10 months since the previous release, so as you may have guessed MilkyTracker is no longer being actively developed. I will continue to incorporate any patches contributed and fix the odd bug here and there but don't expect any major changes from myself, or pailes - who has been absent for some time.

Happy tracking!

The Lobby / Nightbacon - a beginners guide
« on: December 12, 2012, 00:50:31 »
As some of you may know, m0d is currently in hospital.  Some of you may also know that m0d is the greatest advocate and provider of genuine 100% certified Nightbacon.  What is Nightbacon? Well, it's bacon, cooked and eaten at night!  Here is m0d cooking the nightbacon down at the beach during the Sundown 2012 demoparty:

Anyway, in celebration of m0d and Nightbacon, and as an effort to hopefully cheer him up - I decided to put together this quick easy guide to producing Nightbacon in your own home.

Step 1 - Nightbacon must be cooked at night.

Exactly what defines 'night' is difficult to describe, certainly it must be dark but also much later than your usual meal time.  I have decided to cook my Nightbacon at 22:35:

Step 2 - Prepare the frying pan.

Real Nightbacon must be fried, ideally outside on a small stove.  Unfortunately I didn't have an outdoor stove at hand so had to use the kitchen hob.  To prepare the frying pan, add a small quantity of cooking oil.  Heat up the pan to a suitable temperature - you want it hot enough to boil away the water and cook the bacon crispy, but not so hot as to cause the pan to spit hot fat.  I chose a medium heat setting.

Step 3 - Remove the bacon from the packaging

While the pan is heating up is an ideal time to remove the precious bacon from its imprisonment of plastic, as you can see here I have chosen Danish unsmoked back-bacon, currently on a 3-for-£10 offer at Sainsburys (other brands are available).  Sometimes you are lucky and the packaging will open easily by hand without any tools, most of the time you will need a knife or scissors.

Step 4 - Add the bacon to the pan and cook it

The first few minutes of cooking will be spent boiling away the water contained within the bacon.  After a while, the bacon will start to cook proper.  Expect some shrinkage and curling.  Use a suitable cooking utensil to manipulate the bacon to ensure it is cooked thoroughly.

Step 5 - Prepare the toast

When the water has boiled away and the bacon has started to cook and change colour, place some sliced bread in a toaster and toast on a medium setting:

When the toast is ready, the bacon should be about done also.  I prefer crispy bacon:

Step 6 - Combine the ingredients!

Add butter/magarine to the toast and arrange the bacon evenly.  Tomato ketchup is recommended:

Optional extra: cheese slice:

For convenience, cut the final product in half:

Step 7 - Eat!

This is it!  A mere 10 minutes from starting you are now ready to feast on the glorious Nightbacon!  Surely one of the tastiest foods known to man.  Now that you know how easy it is to prepare such a wonderous meal, you may be tempted to cook it more often; however, beware - excessive Nightbacon can be dangerous to your health and sanity:

Get well soon m0d!
