Anyway, OPL3LPT does no sound for S3M and SAT Music, I still don't know why.

Are there many S3Ms using the OPL? I think there was one sample file with Scream Tracker 3, but that's all I know of.

You can find lot of things there:

Hi,

I finalized the CMS code, still need time for the CMSLPT.

I am not sure I can finish before my holidaws, end of the week.
I may release yet another beta mid August, or this week.

Log file so far:

Beta 27
- Added BlasterBoard 2.5 Signed output support. (A Little faster)
- AMD InterWave (GUS PnP) now working and GUS Code simplified.
- TNDLPT Tested.
- OPL3LPT Support added and Tested. (Does not work with SAT/S3M yet)
- CMS Support added. (For VGM)
- Display the Sound Blaster name in the main page.
- Display the LPT2 and Tandy DAC port in the Output menu if available.
- Save the Custom DAC port in the Config File.
- Does not reinit the Text Mode each time a module is played (This can affect some CRT Monitors)
- Corrected a problem in the Vib Volume Slide effect (World of Plastic S3M)
- Various small correction

Hi,

I published the change log only as my last version was a long time ago.

I want to do finish the CMSLPT support before publishing a new version, the last before release 1.0 as it does not make sense to still be in Beta 😀

Hey, FreddyV,

What do I need to do to get a GF1 GUS running with Mod Master XT? 2nd Reality, Scream Tracker et al all auto detect it, but Mod Master XT doesn't I think. So what is it looking for to determine that a GUS is there?

I now installed the ACE software and also used beta26. Not sure which change made it work, but it works now. 😉

EDIT: RADIX.XM doesn't play properly, but I guess this is expected?

It use the ULTRASND Environment variable to detect the Base Address.

Few time and motivation to progress on CMSLPT this week, I tested one time and it did not work.
I surely just need one or 2 hours to finish. This week end I hope.

Regarding the .XM support, it is missing the volume and panning envelope plus some volume column effects..
Also, I thing the panning support is globally bugged, I plan to check this later.

Extremely cool. What VGM does it support? SAM Coupe? Are there nice pieces supporting the SAA1099? Would it work with my Snark Barker, too? Which is CMS compatible...

Hi Freddy! I would like to try Mod Master on my Toshiba T1200 XT portable (it has Adlib xt card installed!) it only has monochrome CGA though and the interface does not seem to display correctly (using msdos 5) Some buttons/icons are not showing text. Could you help? thanks

..the GLX version available is a trial, where we are obliged to restart the player for each module.

Some minor corrections to that claim here 😉

The authors handle is TRIAL afaict, and the player is fully functional.
Use 'spacebar' to select a new music file.

Internal VGM is also Ok normally.

I found few CMS VGM Files there. https://vgmrips.net/packs/chip/saa1099

I used a modified DOSBOX to extract some other music.
Unfortunately, the exported files are too big. Then, I should try to reduce the file size.

Yes, since I did this comment, I found the space key in GLX 😀

Hi,
Modify the interface display is quite difficult.
You can press o for options, t for output to configure Mod Master, no need to see the buttons.

Can you do a picture, so that I see the button visible and not visible ?

Would it not possible to just show text with no colors at all ?
Also had this problem already on monochrome.

It's probably hard-coded into the UI drawing routines.

I reckon that we can expand the VGM support substantially by using Tandy-to-CMS conversion, perhaps even with voice- or pitch-based stereo effects.
Once my conversion code is ready, I will happily offer it for inclusion in Mod Master.

Here Freddy, I photographed most screens for you. The most difficult part is that it doesn't seem to display any music files on the main screen. It's just blank. I also cannot tell what is highlighted, so navigation is guesswork. thx.
