"Ultimate Tracker Support" (UTS) from Resistance released

<< < (2/2)

Hi,

again an update of the "Ultimate Tracker Support" (UTS) from Resistance: http://aminet.net/util/cli/RSE-UTS.lha


V.1.5 - Brief overview of the changes


Replay routines:

- NT-Replay2.0_000_0x0 V.4.1

* Now "Tone Portamento" doesn't call CheckMoreEffects anymore, if wanted period equals note period. I didn't consider this special case of the original Noisetracker/Startrekker replay routine yet.

- PT-Replay2.3a_000_0x0 V.4.1

* Retrig note / Note Delay interrupt routine improved and optimized.

- PT-Replay2.4_000_0x0 V.1.0 (new)

* Based on version 2.3, using the audio interrupts for rewriting the audio location and length registers makes a timer wait superfluous. This guarantees a smooth replay of loop samples with a repeat point of NULL instead of the usual cracking sound generated by the first cleared sample data word.

- PT-Replay3.0b_000_0x0 V.3.9

* Retrig note / Note Delay interrupt routine improved and optimized.

- PT-Replay3.1_000_0x0 V.1.0 (new)

* Based on version 3.0b, using the audio interrupts for rewriting the audio location and length registers makes a timer wait superfluous. This guarantees a smooth replay of loop samples with a repeat point of NULL instead of the usual cracking sound generated by the first cleared sample data word.


Some of the tools also got improved:

- WhichMOD V.1.5

* Songspeed of NULL bpm is no longer displayed
* Improved note info check in the patterns
* Detection of Ultimate Soundtracker note cuts without an effect command
* Considering special effect commands of the old Soundtracker 1-3 and old DOC Soundtracker 4-6
* Used effect commands now displayed based on the logic of my overview "Tracker Features V.1.0" with their different command formats 0-2
* Internal song restart position of Noisetracker 2.x or Startrekker 1.x modules with 4 or 8 channels now displayed

- UST2PT V.1.4

* Now directories, set with the Shell "CD" command, properly supported and filename bug removed
* Large samples of >32 kB now treated correctly
* Detection and conversion of Ultimate Soundtracker note cuts without an effect command
* Considering special effect commands of the old Soundtracker 1-3 and old DOC Soundtracker 4-6
* Now only for modules with a songspeed that is not 120 bpm, the song-speed is multiplied by a factor. In case of 120 bpm, the standard tempo of 125 bpm is used, because 120 bpm modules are usally replayed in 50 fps/125 bpm (e.g. "STK.lepeltheme" of the game Sarcophaser)
* More precise info which speed command could not be set if there are not enough channels without an effect command at the first position in the first played pattern

- OST2PT V.1.4

* Now directories, set with the Shell "CD" command, properly supported and filename bug removed
* Large samples of >32 kB now treated correctly
* Detection and conversion of Ultimate Soundtracker note cuts without an effect command
* Considering special effect commands of the old Soundtracker 1-3 and old DOC Soundtracker 4-6 and converting them if possible
* Now only for modules with a songspeed that is not 120 bpm, the song-speed is multiplied by a factor. In case of 120 bpm, the standard tempo of 125 bpm is used, because 120 bpm modules are usally replayed in 50 fps/125 bpm.
* More precise info which speed command could not be set if there are not enough channels without an effect command at the first position in the first played pattern

- ST2PT V.1.3

* Now directories, set with the Shell "CD" command, properly supported and filename bug removed
* Improved note info check in the patterns.
* Large samples of >32 kB now treated correctly
* There may be some Soundtracker modules with a speed command which sets the speed to a value > 15 ticks. If so, the Soundtracker compatible maximum of 15 ticks is set in the pattern
* More precise info which speed command could not be set if there are not enough channels without an effect command at the first position in the first played pattern

- NT2PT V.1.0 (new)

* If the internal song restart position is 1..127, an additional "end"-pattern with a "Position Jump restartpos" effect command is set in the first position of the additional pattern to ensure Protracker compability
* Some Noisetracker modules (e.g. MOD.load master loading) have a speed command that sets > 31 ticks cause problems on the Protracker that interprets these values as tempo values. A speed > 31 ticks is set to the Noisetracker/Startrekker compatible maximum value of 31 ticks
* More precise info which speed command could not be set if there are not enough channels without an effect command at the first position in the first played pattern

- SplitMOD V.2.0

* Now directories, set with the Shell "CD" command, properly supported and filename bug removed
* More precise error message if the length of the samples file will be NULL bytes
