the cooperation mod has been sitting in my unknown folder for probably 20 years.... :o
"unknown folder" ? can you expend on that ?
OK, it's off topic, here, but it's interesting. You would share your "unknown folder" ?
On AMP side, we are not too much on the "unknown author" side. We have our own Unknown Composers that doesn't contain too much things but it's all more or less sourced (we know where those come from).
On Kestra side, the no author list is big but not easy to trace. We have correctly set a few of them. I'll try to add a few more because 61 is definitely not the lot :)

Thanks Curt Cool :)
OK, here's my take.
Thanks to Curt Cool, we know that MOD.jungle comes off the musicdisk by Vanish at the end of 1992. MOD.cooperation comes from an Abandon cracktro in Q1 of 1992. And ... both are memrips on AMP/modland.

Anyway, The differences between the two are :
1. useless set speed added in MOD.jungle (F04) - doesn't affect anything
2. The 7th sample has its data after loop end removed in MOD.jungle

Two choices, here.
-> Keep both and comment that MOD.jungle is an edited version of MOD.cooperation - and do this "evolution" thing on Kestra.
-> Trash mod.jungle and comment on Kestra.

I missed something ? Oh, and yeah, I'm updating both now on AMP with non-memrips

The Amiga musician Razmo has passed away.
This sad news was reported on FB and local Danish social media web site - at least.
Our condolences to family and friends.

Yet another good catch. It was my mistake - fixed now.

more feedback about uploads

2.MUS (53411 bytes) is
3.MUS (84628 bytes) is a destroyed dupe of
please, stop uploading those (already received 5 times in the past 9 days !)

We also received
OtherFormat.7z contains 434 files in exotic format !
chiptunes.7z contains 442 files in exotic format too !
modules.7z contains 1656 files in MOD/XM/S3M/IT format.
=> whoever upped this, please, contextualise ! While I didn't check everything, I still noted many files that are already on AMP - and obvious "sorting" mistakes. Send a mail or something.

And once again, to everyone helping us by sending material, please upload a text file to help with the sorting. As an unwritten rule, the files without author or contextualized (which prod/party it comes from) are NOT uploaded. Even if we receive the file 50 times ...
Wanted to answer all that but didn't get the time.
Thanks Axxy.
And personally, this doesn't ring any bell at all.
---- let me rephrase that:
There are many music demo with amplifier displayed. I just don't recall any with waveforms.

Hello all,

Amongst the various material that was uploaded in recent weeks, there is this archive sent by Dave Simmons. It should be noted as it went by the book - i.e. we got a nice archive with a small note that described authorship and source. There's a nice little story included which I'm sharing to all :

Quote[...] it's currently the Covid19 lock down in the UK and i've had some spare time to resurrect my Amiga A3000.
Long story short, i lost most of my data through a hard drive failure but i've managed to salvage a few of my old
Pro/Noise/Soundtracker mods. I wasn't exactly part of any group at the time but i was credited as Dwain Dibley by the guys
who used them.

The first group of 8 mods were used on 2 'test' demo disks that probably didn't get released, the second group of 3 mods
are unused/unnamed mods. I believe they were all written between 1988/1989.

So thanks, Dave ! Really appreciated :)

Also, we keep receiving several times the same files again and again and again and again ... So thanks to whoever feeds us with this Polish material, really. It's great but you don't have upload it multiple times. It'll get processed eventually.


I replied on EAB already, but, for the record, here we go:
02 is
04 is

and I've never heard the 07

Very nice music indeed, along many others at this Revision 2020 (online).
I didn't try in Protracker until you suggested it :) It also LOOKS nice :)

Hello to all people who are contributing to AMP

First, a big thanks to everyone for sending stuff to us (either via email, or our cloud or whatever :) )
As a reminder, just drop anything here :

OK, now, that being said, and before going into any specifics, I must remind:
1. you need only to drop a file ONCE. We've been receiving the same files several dozens of times over time. It's completely useless and won't improve our spare time to handle them. So, please, only one upload, heh ?
2. send an accompanying text that helps us to sort the files out. The best is to send an archive per author with a small description text that tells us which composer (and eventually where the music comes from (which demo/compo/etc.) - if known.

OK, some specifics for the latest batches
It's an IT that we already have online since day one. It is 1123586 bytes long. (Memories by ThePeric). It's been uploaded link 30 times in the last 4 months.
It's a MOD that is also online since day one. jarre by Master Blaster.
A few others but let's see those stop being sent, first :)

Those without author (which we, thus, can't handle): please, provide us with authors when uploading.
Whoever feels like helping, here's a few of those numerous files without authors we've been receiving for a year now :
If it gets success, I'll complete this list :)



Obviously, a lot of work went into this ! Congratulation for this massive release !
Now, I understand it's ready-to-use 68k source code. However, the main issue, I guess, will be to locate music material to match those replays :)

I'm not coder, nor expert in replays. Still, perhaps a little note regarding past experiences and discussions. We have found some cases where a tracker would come with its replay source code. Several times, there was differences between said external replay and the one used in the tracker itself !

I'm sure you know of this already, but it's always worth mentioning. AMP uses this work :
A lot was documented in there as well.

All the best
Well, the name is backed up by the Distance 1999 result file and the diz coming with the music.
However, I also immediately noted the reversed name. I went to search for a Diablo what would be in the same group as LoadError over time. Came up empty.

My guess : it's a fake name to enter yet another music in the compo by LoadError :)
Could be wrong, but ...

Hi Anarkhya.
I was kinda waiting for Crown to come out of hibernation ... I guess there's no internet in Luxembourg until the ice melts away ...
THANKS A LOT for this new logo ! it works indeed :) I've added it.

and yes indeed, we are still around ! It's really appreciated you remembered us too :)
