Over the last years, I've heard many rumours about the existence of a beta version of an S3Mplayer for Moonsound OPL4.

What I would like to know if there are people who can give some more information on the whereabouts of this player....

Does it exist? Has it existed? Where could the sources be right now?

Any info is welcome.....

Thx!

IIRC UMF asked Kryten a long time ago to code one. He said he'd give it a look. Haven't heard about the project ever since...

I have also heard rumours about a working beta. But then again, only rumours. I think if there really was one, it would have spread to the internet right now. But I'm thinking... If Meridian for Moonsound works... a S3M convertor should not be too hard to write. I hope. If that works, a seperate Meridian-replayer (apart from the editor) would be very nice of course Wink

Thx Haze....Kryten.....Please help me here. Who is he again? Was he a member of a group or something?

Somewhere deep in my memory, I thougth NOP had something to do with the S3M for Moonsound project....They did write the 4channelMODplayer allready and also that 8channel MOD player....

I have that 8 channel MODplayer for Moonsound...Sounds great.......I presume you all have that player? If you don't and you want a copy, please send me an e-mail and I'll mail it to you...

IIRC Kryten was a NOP member.

Maybe you guys should watch Almost Real and guess again. (hint hint hint)

My bad, my bad. Tongue

So then, anybody still in touch with Kryten? And would be willing to ask about the project?

Snout alerted me that this thread existed. Kryten was my nick back in the good old days.

The request for an S3M player for MoonSound originated from Wolf. I studied the S3M spec and most of the S3M features would be possible on OPL4, but not all of them (at least not in a straightforward way). IIRC S3M supports more types of sample looping than the OPL4. I got stuck there.

I should have implemented a subset of S3M and just tell composers which features they could use and which not, but I was too much of a perfectionist back then. So I'm sorry to disappoint you, but it was only an idea, no code was written.

I remember Yobi was experimenting with NOP's modplayer code around that time, maybe he knows more.

In the MSX FAQ Yobi is indeed mentioned as 'the improver' of NOP's modplayer. The improved version can be found there as well. Maybe someone can point Yobi to this forum?
