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!

Website News Archive / Mod Archive is back

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.

Some of you have already noticed the extended absence of our torrent tracker. I'm happy to announce that it's back! You can find it at its usual place at http://tracker.modarchive.org/

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!

News / Restoring Blacktron Music Compo 2 entries
« on: April 19, 2018, 00:46:13 »
:breakpage:
:breakhead:
In the past, only some of the hundreds of entries from the Blacktron Music Compo 2 that happened in 1998 were spread to The Mod Archive and other tracker scene sites. In January, Brain of Sound Alliance, one of the voters of BMP2, restored their voting CD and uploaded the contents to scene.org. Over the course of the coming days, the modules from this compo will be added to The Mod Archive. Enjoy!
