Do you know if this format is described anywhere ?

No, not that I know of. Pailes was able to reverse engineer the format with the help of a few original modules I provided to him. Perhaps he provided some details in the email conversation between us, but I do not have that available anymore.

Definitely MilkyTracker offers the best support for the AMF format by Otto Chrons. Pailes (MilkyTracker author) released a AMF2MOD converter back then which was already quite good but lacked support for all the iterations of the AMF format. AMF support then was considerably improved and implemented into MilkyTracker.

NOTE: Support for Otto Chrons AMF format is broken in MikyTracker v0.90.85/86, but works fine in v0.90.80. You can download it from MODLAND:

Code: [Select]
ftp://ftp.modland.com/pub/software/trackers/Windows/MilkyTracker/old%20versions/MilkyTracker%20v0.90.80%20Win9x%20&%20WinNT.7z

Note that I updated my previous post regarding Otto Chorns AMF format providing important information about MilkyTracker.

Wired Invitation by Kloon
http://demozoo.org/productions/101961/
- unknown format

The executable is compressed with Pro-Pack v2.08 and the production uses the DOS extender DOS32 by Adam Seychell which uses a compression sheme for the LE (linear executable).
The format of the module in this party invitation is .mxm (Cubic Tiny GUS XM).

The original module is available in Fasttracker 2 format at MODLAND:
Code: [Select]

S!P musicdisk
http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=6474
- unknown format

I don't think there's a unknown format used, according to the table found at the end of file speckdrumm.dat the following modules ought to be included:

Code: [Select]
Omega_-_Beyond_The_Sun.it
Omega_-_Demons_Gate.it
Omega_-_Luzifer.it
Omega_-_Mindstream.it
Omega_-_Planet_X-tatica_IV.it
Omega_-_Stomping_Elefants.it
Omega_-_The_Factory_(2nd_Version).it
Omega_-_The_Inner_Circle.xm
Omega_-_The_Jungle_Move.xm
Omega_-_The_Machine.xm
Omega_-_The_Mind.it
Omega_-_The_Sphere.it
Omega_-_Vampyres_-_The_Dream.it

Though I was not able to rip them. The modules are stored inside speckdrumm.dat using a unique compression sheme, on playback the files are not expanded to memory like usual.

Now I can see everything you've ripped, I have now checked and I already have most of them. :(

Find the ripped .uni modules (MikMod Unitrk) attached below. MilkyTracker crashes attempting to convert "empty heart.uni" and "maybe some day.uni", the others do work fine.

I remember this one now. Empty Heart will work in MilkyTracker  (took several attempts) as I already have done it. The other one still remains unprocessed because MT can't load it properly, maybe some day! /hehe
