To be quite honest (and after posting exactly this in his thread), after listening to his tunes, they are exactly the kind of material that ModArchive quality control rejects to protect newbies from themselves - remember that ModArchive is a permanent archive and we won't remove tunes from there because you don't like them anymore - and "first try" stuff is exactly the kind of music you will generally be embarassed of five years later.
Good point. :)

Most modules in IT at about 1 minute are at about 1 megabyte!
Actually, it depends on the among of data (samples/intruments, pattern commands/lengh) used in the module.
Most modules (even IT) are quite small (around half an megabyte in most cases).

But it could be fine if the limit was raised to 512kb for attachments.
There is no need for the original intent of the attachments to increase the size limit.

General Chatter / Re: What kinds of XMS files do exist?

Without looking at the tool, it probably expects the order list size to be 256, which a few badly written tools assume but which is not a necessity. Tough luck, but I'm not going to change that. If you really need to use this tool, resave your XM files in something that always saves 256 order list items (e.g. Milky or FT2).

I figured that this program (xm2snes) detests OpenMPT made XM files ( don't know why, but it results in an crash while converting, even if the file was Compatibility Exported), while it accepts MilkyTracker made files and converts them properly without any crashes :(.

Just wanted to point out, since this program is free abandonware (and badly documented) and is one of two options (the other being snesmod) for making SPC files out of module files.

the limit on the forum attachments is actually so low to discourage people from abusing the forum as a file hosting service. Attachments may be used as a last resort for posting e.g. screenshots or crash dumps when asking a question or reporting a bug.
Even if the limit was 100kb, it coudn't stop me from posting some of my new crafted tracks and remakes :D. Eventhoe i don't really mind the current attachment size limit.

We don't currently have a module hosting service and it will probably not come back (for legal and other reasons), but there are plenty of good alternatives out there these days.

Posts without a download link posted into the "free music downloads" forum are a bit pointless, aren't they?

Dripping Megabytes is my second chiptune and my first ever module that did not use any samples from Skaven.

This topic is not about forum attachments, but anyway - the limit on the forum attachments is actually so low to discourage people from abusing the forum as a file hosting service.

Why is it limited to 256 kilobytes? Most modules in IT at about 1 minute are at about 1 megabyte!

Skaven said "off key", Saga Musix said "a row too early".
