Dunno how that would be of much help in this case, because this case seems to be little researched. I am currently collecting evidence from both sides and asking people from various other sites to help, though. I might have some results on who the real "Timelord" is in a few days, hopefully.

After some time of investigation, I want to let everyone know that I'm rather convinced that everything is like Robert Gergely claims. I have done a lot of research, and you can read up on it if you want to see why I am convinced that he's telling the truth: http://sagamusix.de/other/timelord/

Nice researching Saga. ;D

If I was to hazard an opinion, I would have credited Robert with being the real Timelord.  For me, the credit in the files from hornet archive, which have been there for nearly 20 years where he was mentioned kinda proves that.  Looking at all the evidence you have gathered, I agree with your conclusions...

Hopefully, we can now draw a line under it.

Well, it doesn't really if you consider the whole story - Jared claiming that Robert has been impersonating him for over 20 years - if it was true, Robert could just have uploaded the modified zip package to Hornet back then. But yes, it's all quite absurd and I think Jared was hoping that none of his claims could still be verified - including lies like Robert working as a sysop at Blackbox or Basehead being his (Jared's) friend.

I just wanted to add a couple more things to this thread and then I'm done.

Quote
Amiga Music Preservation one of the many places I uploaded my MODs to many years ago

Now, this might be hard to verify but, looking at the Timelord modules on Modland, these might very well have been contributed by me, back in 2000 and something when I sent in 4 dvds full of mods. Renamed filenames is a bit of a giveaway, but a possibility.

That might also apply to AMP too.  I contributed about 18,000+ modules back in the day as well.  It is hard to say whether they were in with that lot I sent in, so that also could contradict the above quote as well.


On another matter. Modland has a further 2 s3m' in the Timelord folder, called "Luigi" and "Gryphon".  Maybe we could get confirmation of these 2 modules as they both appear under the "Mike" artist here on ModArchive.

Well, at least they're not Rob's... just like that one XM there.

I'd like to thank Saga for taking the time to do this, and it's a great shame that it was necessary.  But on to better things...

To anyone interested, I took some time out of my other musical productions to compose a new track in the .it format once again, the first in a very long time.  Was a very welcome diversion and I'm pleased with the outcome.  Available now:

I think in the case of these two, they contained sample text with the word timelord and were accidentally put in my directory..  I recognize a sample in Luigi.

That song by the way is one of my favorites now, builds up nicely, lots of feeling in it.  No idea who made it.

They are both under the Artist "Mike" here at Modarchive.

And btw, very nice piece of music for Spheroid. I'm surprised after 16 years you would remember how to use Impulse Tracker or get it to work on modern day machines or did you use a different tracker?

A very nice addition to your other modules and feel free to compose some more...  ;)

Thanks.. I actually used Schism which is a modern clone of Impulse Tracker.  All the keys and layouts are the same, apart from forgetting all of the effects the entire process was like riding a bike.

Although I am more dedicated to professional audio now, this is definitely something I can come back to every now and again for future releases.
