XPK-compressed .mod files
« on: November 18, 2020, 16:10:39 »

There are four .mod files in the ModArchive database that are compressed in XPK format and do not play or parse correctly.  These are:


I have unpacked these four into their original uncompressed format and attached them in a .zip file here.  Three of these (alien_nation, gonna-cry, maniac_beat) are 4-channel ProTracker format.  The last one (defekt40) is Player 4.1a and needs ProWizard or similar to convert it.

I suggest these versions should replace the existing files in the db.

Thanks, I had those on my to-do list for a while. Will replace them ASAP.

There are also a few tunes still compressed with Power Packer - I do know Protracker can open those if you have the library available, but would it make sense to replace these with unpacked versions on the site?  For modern players etc?

Here is a list of Power Packer files and I am attaching a .zip of uncompressed versions.

Actually the unpacked gonna-cry.mod is now just a dupe of existing gonnacry.mod: https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=44020

And the unpacked synthmat.mod is a dupe of existing synthomatik.mod: https://modarchive.org/index.php?request=view_by_moduleid&query=119368

you can merge these.

The XPK files have been replaced (apart from the one that needs further conversion). I don't think we need to replace all PP20 files, as PP20 support is more widespread in many playback libraries. I'll keep those for now (apart from that file that had an existing unpacked dupe).

Seems like we already had that one, too. :) It's replaced now.
