I tried FT2 yesterday as well. It did not work at all. Samples were glitching and everything was weird. I think that its GUS PnP support is maybe broken? ST3 seemed totally fine.

However since Panic is made by the same people that made ST3, I think playing THAT correctly and taking ST3 as the "gold standard" at least for S3Ms would make sense.

I think for a GUSpnp you should use the FT2 builds that are shared here ( Fasttracker 2.10 & 2.11 for MS-DOS ) on this forum by 8bitbubsy because the last official build has broken GUS support by trying to add GUSpnp functionality.

Did 8bitbubsy explained how he had the code ?
I am on holiday and those period limit were not in my priority. It require lot of test with various trackers to be done correctly.
So expect a fix in 2 ou 3 months...

Where did you get the code from? From the Triton people themselves? Perhaps they want to share the code with me, being a fellow-scener.

From Vogue and Mr.H after some long dialogs, convincing them that it would help me with my FT2 clone development. The code I got from them is an incomplete pre-release version of FT2.07, but I re-sourced it back to 2.09 by hand, and the code/data is bit-perfect to that of FT2.09. I already had the 2.09 replayer laying (from kebby/kb), so after injecting that it was only a matter of looking for changes in comparing disassemblies, which made me find out what to rewrite next. Was not a lot of code.

But he also has - as he explained - made an FT2 clone with the source code on Github.

I must add that I really value the work guys like you do to fill a software niche for retro enthousiasts. So take the time you need 😊.
