Seems to be a usable work-in-progress, a clone of Fasttracker II

That is really awesome! Immediately hit with a wave of nostalgia as soon as I opened it up. I think Ft2 was my first true love <3 Nice to see its legacy carried on, feels really authentic, just as I remember it.

Can you share a screenshot?

 

MilkyTracker's XM playback is allegedly very accurate. Does this tracker claim to be better?

 

I guess I'm wondering what the point is here? Was the FT2 interface really that good? I mean, we already ported Nibbles to Lua... :)


Link to MilkyTracker, just in case people have never seen it before:

MilkyTracker's XM playback is not very accurate. Several effect commands aren't implemented and some contain "bugs".

 

The FT2 clone should probably be 100%, considering he got hold of the original source and is generally very picky about accuracy. I would assume OpenMPT is also accurate, or at least close to accurate, with the drawback of having a horrible GUI.

 

EDIT: That being said, I do prefer Milkytracker as well :)

16-bits version of FT2 is really nice and even supports sampling inside program, which Milkytracker to my knowledge still can't do... Then again I prefer Schism Tracker for oldskool tracking thanks to its keyboard oriented interface.

 

I tried to get into OpenMPT some time ago but like Joule said, interface is just horrible with its Visual Basic looks. Renoise does a lot more and its interface is miles ahead. Of course OpenMPT has a very good compatibility with lots of different old module formats so it's good for playback purposes.

Can someone post a screenshot? Too paranoid (translation: lazy) to install an .exe file without access to the source code from some person I don't know like it's 1999.


Disclaimer: Irrational exceptions to the rule a plenty.


Found one.Crazy!

How do you know this? The web page is very terse. I can't find any info except two retweets, unversioned links to zip files, and a changelog.

Ah, but it's only a few lines of code just to drive people crazy on how to activate the cheat in FT2 Nibbles :D ;)
