Found another bug: I have two VGM files in the folder and make a playlist of them. The 2nd VGM is simply played twice.

By the way: do you support vgz? Probably not...

No, I need the uncompress code for this.
With 7zip, right click extract file to do a .vgm from a vgz.
For .vgz, mod master start sbvgm if you copy it in the same folder as mod master.

EDIT: The change is to null 0x5c to 0x5E, which contains the OPL3 clock, and instead to set 0x50 to 0x52 to 99 9E 36, which is the OPL2 clock.

Yes, only this 😀

- S3M: Bug corrected in the pattern loader (MJay99, PASSTIME.S3M)

That's much better now, a big thank you for fixing it for one of my favorite tracks 😁

Anybody tested with a Tandy LPT ? and OPL2LPT ?

I just tested it on my Amstrad PPC 640 with a mod of the Mystic Towers (Apogee) music, it worked.

First sound wasnt perfect, it was correct after I erased the .DIR and .CFG, I suppose because I was using a covox 4 before ?

But, I only have sound with the internal amplifier, strangely no sound via the jack cable which is connected to Logitech speakers.

It is the first time I am using the OPL3LPT since I bought it a few months ago. Any advice will be welcome.

Thanks,

Note I added OPL2LPT support only, Access to the OPL3 registers (Channels 10 to 18) is not programmed yet as I needed to have confirmation for OPL2LPT first.

Thank you for new release. VGM support works excellent !!!
However, I think I found a bug. Darkness2.s3m by Purple Motion is completely silent !
I can see song is playing (notes and effects on tracks), but can't hear nothing.
Same situation in Cubic Player, and OCP (even newest version 0.1.20 for Linux). No sound at all.
XTC-Play and Inertia Player are able to play it correctly.

What is even more strange - Scream Tracker V3.2 plays it silently (but not Fasttracker II).

2) i420EX /486DX33 /16MB /Trio64V+ /AZT2316
3) i430HX /P233MMX /64MB /VirgeDX+3DFX /YMF701

For the module with no sound, its global volume is set to 0 by default and is not changed during the partition.
Simply edit the file in ST3 to change its global volume.
The players able to play it are the players having a bug 😀

As it was made for a game, it is probably the game engine that change the global volume.
It was then not supposed to be ripped and released as is.
