When is a mod not a mod?
« on: July 21, 2011, 20:40:43 »
This is aimed mainly at Asle or Deus-ex because this is on both AMP and Modland....

While looking for missing mods I came across Forever2.s3m by Basehead. The Modland one is under Forever2 (big version).s3m, both 1,365,111 bytes long.

This file is not really Forever2.s3m by Basehead. It is in fact

forever.s3m by basehead
the passage of time.s3m by ryan cramer
moonglow groove.s3m by daredevil

Remember years ago seeing something like this, probably the same file..

Hello,

 welll, you stumbled upon one of the many cases where the file was stored, following the policy "quantity over quality".
 This was a bad file, which is now gone.
 Good catch ;)

 And this answer is for AMP.

Im just wondering if it was some kind of image/file used for a musicdisk or something, having all 3 s3m' in it?

It was many years ago when I found out about this issue myself. It was before I became co-admin at MODLAND when I reported this to Coma (MODLAND admin) to have this file removed. Ever since that time I had to remove it at least one more time when Coma added it to the collection due to someone uploading it to MODLAND. I didn't notice it had reemerged again, so thanks for mentioning it Axxy. :)
Best regards
