With all these extensions, can I just resubmit a completely new song? Been very unsatisfied with my current submission which was made only 4 days before the original deadline.

Sure, that's possible. Sorry about all the unclear deadlines but that's just how open-source development works when there is no time pressure. ;)

Hi there! I uploaded a song called Sorpladra, made by me, under my shorter user name (on the file) of 1-REDD-1.
I hope to see and other songs made with OPL instruments, because I like to hear songs made with trackers, because many of them are awesome.  :)

I have a question, regarding the uploading of compos. I have another track made by me for FM+PCM example song compo, and I would like to contribute more for the release package of the upcoming version of OpenMPT.
I am allowed to upload more different tracks for the FM+PCM example song compo?

IMPORTANT UPDATE!

To put some finishing touches on the OPL implementation, I did some volume measurements with real SoundBlaster cards and found that for better S3M compatibility, OPL voices should be a bit more quiet. I have changed this now, and as a new simple rule, you can now expect a single-oscillator OPL voice to be as loud as a single sample when the VSTi and sample preamp sliders are at the same levels.

This means that you have to fix your competition submissions!
First, grab OpenMPT 1.28.00.40 or later from https://builds.openmpt.org/builds/ (this is currently being built, it will be available in a few hours).

For S3M files, you will notice that the "VSTi" (i.e. OPL) volume is now at 36 rather than 48. If you could save the value of the VSTi slider in S3M files, the old settings would now be a 64. But since it will always revert back to 36, you need to change the sample pre-amp instead: Multiply the sample volume by 36 and then divide by 64. So if your sample pre-amp was previously set set to 48, it would now be set to 27.

For MPTM files, you can either do the same as for S3M files, or do it the other way around: Multiply the VSTi volume by 64 and then divide by 36.

After you're done, simply submit the file under the same name again.

If I notice that you haven't made those changes until the end of the compo, I might do them myself, but I would appreciate if you could save me from going through each file and editing it.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but that's how pre-release features tend to work... ;)
