Free Music Downloads / [pop-/rock ballad] Driven (SC/YT/mp3)
« Last post by Mr.Eagle on April 16, 2017, 13:19:08 »
Hi & happy Easter everybody.

Today I'd like to introduce you a new ballad-type song called:

Driven
(April 2017, 06:23)

Besides music I have another passion, namely (professional) motor sport. And there was a time when motor sport was actually extremely dangerous. Like Sir Jackie Stewart once said: "From the five years, 1968-73, if you were an F1 driver at that time, there was a very likely chance that you would have died."
Many drivers died in the late 1960s, 1970s, and even in the 1980s in various motor sports series and not just in Formula 1. Those were horrible times.... :'(

Well, this is what this song is about and I hope that you'll find it listenable.


Greetings,
-MrEagle

Thanks for the dump file. This is a very interesting crash. The crash is related to VST plugins, but the plugin itself does not seem to be the culprit, but our own code instead.
Can you consistently reproduce it with that module? If so, I would like to have a look at the module as that would make debugging the problem much easier.

You will have to upload the .dmp file that can be found in the path mentioned in that screenshot, otherwise we cannot help you.
PS: Please don't use ALL-CAPS for thread titles. No, you won't get any more attention that way.

Thank you, Manx and Saga for the detailed explanation and suggestion.
I will take your suggestions and tell my programmer, especially about WebWorker and will inform you about the result, so everyone will get benefit from the information.

Best regards,
RyanBram

As manx says, you would have to experiment and check if libopenmpt can be run in a WebWorker, as running libopenmpt in the main JavaScript thread is really unsuitable for the game. It's one of the reasons why e.g. libopenmpt playback via chiptune2.js often stalls when switching tabs - the browser is ismply busy doing other things in the main thread.

Hi, community.
I have plan to use libopenmpt.js for creating web based game. I am using tool that make non programmer like me to fullfilll the task. The only problem is the tool/engine doesn't support module music format and I prefer it over ogg because of filesize. Before I invest my money for programmer, I have 2 qustions.

libopenmpt.js comes at a size cost itself, thus you probably have to include that also in your calculations (it may very well still be less in size than ogg or mp3 tracks).

1. How much computer resources are needed to playback format like IT or MPTM compared to MIDI or OGG Vorbis?

libopenmpt.js is rather big (about 2.4MB of Javascript code). Additionally, the whole module file has to be loaded by libopenmpt.js, which (temporarily during loading) requires (roughly) twice the amount of memory as the module file consumes on disk. During playback, roughly the module size plus some internal structures (which are not really that big) of memory is required. If the module uses sample compression, all sample data will be uncompressed during loading and be stored uncompressed in memory.

2. How fast is libopenmpt.js to playback module music file? Can it be use for real time playback without lag or performance penalty?

I am not aware of anyone using libopenmpt.js in a Javascript game engine so far. Realtime playback is certainly possible and used by various websites (although for module playback only, without a game engine running additionally). CPU consumption is (depending on the Javascript engine and browser) roughly at worst 2 times the CPU consumption of native playback (so far, noone has done precise benchmarks, afaik).
Rather technical aspect: I am not sure if it would be possible to put libopenmpt.js rendering into a separate WebWorker (I am not a Javascript expert and thus I have never tried that). That would allow libopenmpt.js to run in a separate thread than the game engine, which would allow it to use a separate CPU core concurrently. If that is not possible (or not implemented by your game), libopenmpt.js will have to compete with the rest of your game for CPU time.

Even though we would certainly like to see people experimenting with libopenmpt.js in web-based games, I am not quite sure if I could recommend that usage. You will certainly have less hassle if you are using AAC or Ogg Vorbis playback provided by the browsers and your game engine.
