How to update/delete old module?
« on: July 24, 2016, 21:39:37 »

Hello. I have module "db_-_huggle_beat.mptm". I need to update it. I made new .xm version of this module. Is it possible to delete/update old version?

If you tell us in advance before uploading, it is possible that we merge the uploaded files. Otherwise the new file will be rejected as a duplicate of the old file.

I have a mod I fixed after a bad STM2MOD conversion (STM2MOD often forgot to flip PC audio bytes into Amiga audio) back in the 90's, which you have the raw botched conversion of (don't ask me why or how, I was hoping you had the original STM version, but alas). Who do I contact to get you the fixed version?

Just upload the fixed version and post a link to the original archived file here.

PS I'd rather have the original STM file than a "fixed" MOD conversion in the archive.

I agree with you, and through the modern magic that is ZXTune (despite some minor rendering qualms), I actually found it on AMP.

Thanks. To me it looks like the original is actually another .mod file we already have, and the STM file is a conversion of that MOD file. I base that assumption on the sample names in the STM file (the trailing numbers in the sample names are good indications for that). There are tons of MOD->STM conversions for some reason... Anyway, I will merge the obviously broken MOD into the non-broken MOD file.

Well, I can't know if the STM is the original original, but it's certainly more original than the converted mod. Most STM2MOD conversions that went bad just had bad samples, I could pull them, flip the bytes, reinsert the corrected samples, and all was peachy. This one was special because there were a few timing errors, a couple notes had to be corrected, and I never did find the right loop points (which makes the STM file superior).

Only a couple other conversions gave me half as much trouble.. Kefren's Funky (shortened some silent space at the beginning to match song timing, on top of sample fixes) and "Labyrinth" which had a similar problem. Funny thing, I recently found a STM of Labyrinth and it was missing the entire opening SFX sequence... that kind of thing sounds more like a mod to stm handy job to me than this*, but, whatever. I stopped being active after my BBS was crashed in 96 and I had a baby which took my primary focus, so I'm sure you've seen much more of this stuff than I.

Anyway, all that withstanding, I gave you the closest to original I have, so maybe people will actually enjoy the tune now. :)

* Edit: I just looked up your copy of Labyrinth.sfx.2 , and it that seems confirmed... I fully believe your copy is the true original of that one.

Edit 2: OMG I totally didn't see you had a link in there. Well, that's embarrassing.. on a brighter note, I now (once again) fully agree with you. I just really need to slow down sometimes. I wonder what else I can find actual original MODs of..
