Website News Archive / Temporary slowness
« on: September 10, 2014, 19:06:13 »
There is a temporary problem that will cause the site to seemingly stop responding when posting comments or uploading new modules. Until the problem is resolved, please be patient and give your browser a minute until the site will respond again.

Hall of Shame / Mc Toni / tropiCCo
« on: July 04, 2014, 00:23:19 »
This file was attempted to be uploaded to The Mod Archive. It was simple enough to spot as it is a 1:1 copy of T-Tracker's famous tune. Song name and sample texts largely remained the same, just the author name and greetings were exchanged (and even "Play this in FT2 only" was changed to "Play this in MPT only!"... LOL).
Apparently this full rip was made for a Jazz Jackrabbit 2 level:

Considering that not everyone might be able to use torrents, I have put the popular Waveworld and Kiarchive downloads on an FTP server. This way, they can be downloaded with a regular FTP program or internet browser. I also took the liberty to remove the unnecessary MP3 conversions from the Waveworld archive, and extracted all the zip files found in sub folders into their own folders - so now you are pretty much ready to go after downloading the archive.

Download Waveworld (945 MB)
Download Kiarchive (453 MB)

To extract 7z files, you can use the free software 7-zip.

Bonus: The original Kiarchive site, salvaged through!

Have fun!

Website News Archive / 20 years of Impulse Tracker
« on: February 16, 2014, 19:05:17 »
The end of this year will represent 20 years from when the first line of Impulse Tracker code was written. Jeffrey Lim, the author of one of the most popular DOS trackers of all times, announced an upcoming series of articles about how Impulse Tracker was created in a blog post. Additionally, a promise was made to release the original Impulse Tracker later this year.

MilkyTracker Bug Reports / FT2's panning law unveiled
« on: February 03, 2014, 17:01:37 »
There's probably no widely spread tracker or player out there right (apart from the latest OpenMPT test versions) now which gets FT2's panning law right, and given that panning laws can greatly change how a module sounds, Milky better should get this right.
Right now, Milky uses a panning law that is similar to OpenMPT's old "headphones" mode. However, this is not quite right. I've found out that FT2 uses the square root pan law, which is close to the linear pan law, but it stresses samples that are played on the far left and right.
In ChannelMixer.cpp, around line 170, the left and right channel volume are computed. I think this should be done as follows:

Code: [Select]
mp_sint32 left = (mp_sint32)round(128.0f * sqrt((256-pan) / 256.0f));
mp_sint32 right = (mp_sint32)round(128.0f * sqrt(pan / 256.0f));

You may want to use a lookup table for that to avoid the constant recalculation of square roots, of course. Here's FT2's original LUT. Note that its indices range from 0 to 256, while the internal panning ranges from 0 to 255, meaning that there is no "true 100% right" panning, only 100% left is possible.

Code: [Select]
Formula: round(65536 * sqrt(n / 256)) for n = 0...256

   dd 65536

With that LUT, the code should be looking somewhat like this:

Code: [Select]
Before (left/right range from 0...128):
mp_sint32 volL = (chn->vol*left*masterVolume)<<6;
mp_sint32 volR = (chn->vol*right*masterVolume)<<6;

After (LUT ranges from 0...65536):
mp_sint32 volL = (chn->vol*LUT[256-pan]*masterVolume)>>3;
mp_sint32 volR = (chn->vol*LUT[pan]*masterVolume)>>3;

Note that this code is duplicated several times throughout the whole mixer code. Might make sense to refactor this into a separate function.

MilkyTracker Bug Reports / Emulating F00, the correct way
« on: December 21, 2013, 13:58:05 »
MilkyTracker simply stops processing an XM when encountering an F00 ("set speed to 0") command. However, what FT2 internally does is completely different from that. As you might know, FT2 counts ticks backwards, e.g. at speed 6, it counts 5,4,3,2,1,0. So what does it do at speed 0? It counts 65535, 65534, 65533, ... ;) This results in a quite different behaviour if therer are any effects on the same row  as the F00 command, plus it means that the command never truly stops the module.
