Found a copy of a lost module
« on: January 13, 2022, 03:44:08 »

Way back in the dawn of modarchive, a file named alien.xm ("Run for your Life" by Trackz, 1997) was overwritten by a later upload with the same filename, and was thereby lost.

Well, I finally found my archived copy, and I'd like to upload it, but I want to ensure that it doesn't get clobbered again. Suggestions on how I should rename it? Not sure what the internal naming conventions are here.

One of my favorites, so I was sad when it disappeared!

Do you have any indication when that was supposed to have happened?

search the filename (free.xm) and youll see that the module name is different.
