Wrong title and module?
« on: October 06, 2018, 03:00:51 »

Module malta has a title related to the production Malta Intro the module was used in but the title should be Actual Reality.

Also the module appears to be ripped from the prod. The original [direct download link] (usable according to http://amp.dascene.net/faq.php#05 "Can I legally copy [...]") may be preferred. This is a 99.5% audio (fingerprint) match.

Could at least the title be fixed? I understand files are rarely replaced.

I wonder if the Malta module could be from the Mods Anthology CD collection.

Demozoo look like they credited the module (Malta) in 2016. I've had the Actual Reality (with full credits) on my HD for nearly 20 years, never seen the Malta version and it's about 1k different in size from the Malta named one to.

Looks like MA has both versions, so the Malta version is a dupe...

Thanks, it's a dupe indeed! I had only found Actual Reality by Lizardking through the search, searching for the artist and aliases also didn't give useful results. Thanks again!

Note that we generally do not edit files to adjust titles and sample texts to the author's (or listener's) liking; if there is a correct version out there with the correct title, we will merge the incorrect version into the correct one, as it has been done in this case.
