modinfo
« on: May 15, 2011, 17:28:47 »
Ho,

 OK, it's not a new feature, I know :). Still, only topic open about modinfo() is in the support conf.
 Anyway, I've just added the support of OCT (Octalyser) format, from the Atari ST/Falcon world. Very few cases on AMP ... for now.

 So, official list of supported formats are :
669, MTM, OKT, AHX/THX, SFX*, PTM, DIGI, DMF, STK, MOD, FST, OCT, S3M and BP*, IT, DBM

 Remains to be done :
DBM (doubtful I manage this one) <- now done
EMOD (Quadra Composer)
IT (possible) <- incomplete
MED/OSS (very doubtful it'll be done)
ML (no doc)
XM (doubtful - or some1 give me a display idea)

XM would be fab. Does the problem come from displaying the data?

XM and IT would be good.

Does Modinfo support FAR and ULT as well?

hum .. now that ULT is mentioned, I remember working on it ... however .. now, where is it ? weird. As for FAR, no, it's not. I guess it could also be supported. I'll have a look when motivation is up and spare time exists (or I'm surrounded with demands ;) )
Anyway, I can't say yet for IT as I'm not familiar enough with the format.
For XM, I have no problem with the format at all. It's how to display 128 instruments texts which can have, each, 16 samples texts. Any idea to display that would be welcome. Some thought:
instr1
 sample1
 sample2
 ...
instr2
 sample
...

or the DP way
sample1 of instr1
sample2 of instr1
...
sample1 of instr2
...
instr1
instr2
instr3
etc.

I quite like the way XMPlay displays the Instruments and Samples, pretty clear to read, no idea if that can be done that way.

How practical it is to display like this, especially with the sheer number of instruments/samples, I don't know.  This particular xm uses all of them because he included a text on the bottom line of the instrument list, so you have to scroll down to it.

Ok, so, the correspondence between inst and samp is lost. I know of a few XM that must keep these two together.
[self promotion]
my own XM.intricate love.
[/self promotion]
OK, in there, I would say in inst 09 "no Xtc player 0.95c"
and in the first samp of this inst : "mega ultraclick"
So, the FT2 way.
Out of context, the "message" is lost, as shown in XMplay/DP2.

Must think about it some more.

As is in most cases looking at other replayers/trackers.

I was more interested in being able to click the Info button on AMP to see what information was stored in the actual XM file, as one would do with the formats that Modinfo already supports.  I'm not to bothered how its presented to be honest. It's not like I load XM files into Fast-tracker anymore.

WTF? Anyhow, what do you use to listen to modules on PC then? If you are using a PC, that is...

Me? Nope, I was just a gamer in the 90's..
I once opened Dpaint (5 minutes for the fun) on the real machine but my various diskdealers never gave me a tracker, I was simply not aware of their existence (as for the demoscene) 4 years ago.
