wow I had no idea MPT made files incompatible, but then again I dont like xmplay so I don't notice the difference in playback in MPP. MPT was the easiest tracker to use when I started so I guess I'm stuck with it.

but this new format, what cool new features will it have? I look forward to it

edit: does modplug tracker make incompatibel xms?

I think it would be interesting if everyone who loves to point out what's wrong with OpenMPT would take a slightly more intelligent approacd, join the forums and make suggestions on how to improve the software as well as the compatibility situation. At ModPlug Central there are forums for both bug reports and feature suggestions.

I have to ask, do you also act this way in real life? You see something wrong, that you obviously care a lot about (it's easy to tell from the agitated posts) and you don't act on it but just bitch about it with your friends? This isn't anything personal, it just annoys me when people talk things down when it would take the equal amount of time to make things better.

As for the difference between OpenMPT and MPT 1.16, it's only changes that the active community has requested, bug fixes and improved usability. New feature requests are always welcome, and if you know your way around VC++ everyone is thankful for any help you can offer to make OpenMPT better for everyone.

i agree with älskling. am-fm, MPT is not the only tracker that cripples oldschool MOD files. there was no real standard and many programs (including Fast Tracker) invented their own .MOD format (mind the same extension!). i guess MPT creates FT-compatible modules. for the IT compatiblity issue, try the "compatiblity export" feature in the "file menu".

With MPT/OpenMPT one can add 'extensions' to XM that won't be played by most XM players, but certainly one also can create XMs which playes in XM players. The unfortunate thing is that the GUI doesn't give indications which features are and which are not 'extensions'.

By the way, I didn't see anything mentioned earlier about it, but what are the new features of the MPTM format? :)

I'm going to move this thread as it is no longer anything to do with suggestions, more a general discussion.

at the current state, it features the same things as IT does, plus the MPT hacks and a new feature, only available in mptm modules called "Tuning".

Err, this must be a new sort of tuning, because tuning was available even as early as on S3M, so it would not be a format specific thing in that case. ;)

I think some meat on this would be nice. :P
