General Discussion / Re: No downloads now at all?

It's because it's a HTTP download and Chrome has started to block non-secure downloads from HTTPS websites, particularly for high risk filetypes like exe files

Seems that downloading zipped data files is now considered a risk in Chrome..  It's quite amazing that I can go to some dodgy websites and download just fine, but not from a relatively low risk website such as AMP... Literally, AMP is the only site that is affected by this, that I have found so far...
General Discussion / No downloads now at all?

Carrying on from blocked downloads from AMP in an earlier post, to now clicking a download that does absolutely nothing. As downloading files from various other sites are working, it seems AMP is the only the site that downloads are working...

Is there a problem with AMP or is something to do with my browser?

*edit - seems now I have to right click + save link as - has AMP made a change?

sounds like it, indeed. You're suggesting I had an alternate nick ?

Nope, I just found the link by accident and was going to change the Lofihile mods to Andyk, because it sounds like Lofihile was more digital (ie, mp3, soundcloud etc.) rather than mod releases.

Would you say that Andyk and Lofihile are the same person?

I'm assuming he isn't active anymore....

Just to add, both and Pouet are doing the same. Is the Demoscene being targeted or something?  :'(

Seems Chrome no longer likes unknown or not commonly downloaded files from AMP. I've noticed this more and more recently with anything demoscene related.  I have had the same happening with Scene Org on and off.

What I don't understand is what has changed since the day before yesterday, I haven't changed anything, Chrome still the same version as Friday. It's not like a data file like a module is dangerous or anything?

As from today, it seems that Google has decided to block all downloads from AMP.... wtf??

It seems zipped module files are now considered dangerous. When and what has changed since the day before or all the years where this hasn't been a problem, I have no idea. I haven't made any changes to anything, so why now????
Musician database / How many Zed' out there?
« on: August 25, 2020, 15:04:50 »
Anyone know how many tracker musicians are out there known as Zed???

AMP has 2, one from Hungary, other unknown..

I found possibly another 2.

One likes to spell out Z using loads of z' in the credits..

The other might be 2 or just the one person. Credits in mods (.xm) use zED of N-Zone or Zed of N-zone, one has a French email address, the other a Polish email address. These might be off the old defunct TiS site, so no idea tbh.

Is the Mix one just a dupe of Fleshbrain' Sauron with different texts?

Hello Axxy,

Nice finding mate, I have contacted them both and will let you know. :)


Any replies yet?

Maybe this one is for Crown...

Dreaming Softly.mod dupe for both Gladiator and Rhesus Minor..  As they were both in Cryptoburners, any idea which one wrote it?
Musician database / How many Venom' are there?
« on: June 03, 2020, 15:06:39 »
Ok, apart from the ones here, anyone have any ideas if there are more?

Having spotted that one Venom is Inspekdah Deck, I came across a couple of other Venom', i.e. Swedish(2) and Finnish(1)... Now sorted...

Got one Venom (Matt Peters) with the MC5 Rookie entry "Sustained". Anyone know if he tracked other songs or heard of him?

The last Venom has roughly 16 fairly hq xm modules to his name. Usually credits his name with \/enom or l/enom, and called Oskar Janssen with a hotmail addy. Possibly d/l from TiS in 98/99, so no idea where they came from.

I don't like including RL names, is there a way to Spoiler alert them for future reference?

My current Unknown modules folder consists at the moment of 810 modules (all formats)..  This folder literally contains everything that I haven't been able to identify yet..  Every now and again I try to identify them through AMP, Modland, Demozoo and Kestra...  It's almost impossible to identify some, especially those that might be a few bytes different etc etc.

Remember this,779.0.html ?  (cooperation was one of those mods)....

Typically, when I add new entries, ie. like when AMP has added many new mods lately, I use the Find Files/Duplicates in TC, and occasionally it turns up some of the unknown modules, but rarely. Also, when I add or rip modules (back in the day), I tended to keep the date-stamp intact and cooperation was added back in 2000, where it's been sitting since I added it.  I think the jungle module was added recently and I recognised the tune and managed to find it, nothing will find cooperation when there is a 14 byte file-size difference with the jungle mod.

Another trouble with my unknown ones, not everything as released in a demoscene production, si I have no idea where they come from..

** edit **

My unknown pt (not all amiga pt) modules sits at a modest 256 (just under 40mb)....., so not as bad I as thought.  I have been rummaging through as I got nothing else to do atm. Came across a mod saying it was ripped from Worldness VI, Kestra seems to have them all from the production I presume. I can't get the .dms to work, so I can't check it. Funny, the mod is called Spring, WN VI has a intro on there called Spring/Gemini, so who knows.....
