Is that the final date, or is that without the possible 2 week delay?

If you look closely at the calendar, that is the two week "delay".

I've messed around and came up with a small tune that I'll submit to the compo. May not be awesome, since I just rushed it together as it would've been taking nearly a month to come up with anything good :P.

Otherwise, this was a feature that I never thought MPT was going to support. I dreamed about built-in FM instruments with the same capabilities as the samples Portamento, Volume, Vibrato and the other sound-manipulating effects. This kind of made the dream come true, cuz I had hopes for 4-op FM.

But I understand why just OPL2/3 are implemented, since it's a feature of scream-tracker 3, so I'm not disappointed :). MPT 1.28 has a whole new sector of features ready to be explored! :D

A little question, since I haven't used ST3.... Is the volume-curve for the FM supposed to be exponetial compared to the samples volume-curve being linear?
I have it really tricky to equalize the volumes, especially when using volume slides.

Yes, ST3 sends volume to the chip as-is.

I have contemplated at least adding an optional linear mode in MPTM, but the problem is that the sample volume range is identical to the OPL volume range (well, almost - OPL only goes from 0 to 63 rather than 64), meaning that there would be some inevitable loss of precision. Maybe in the next version.

I can live with the exponential volume behavior :D, it's just important that the FM sounds isn't hard-volslided like the samples, or they will barely be heard. I'm still happy with this new feature (I love tracking game-inspired music with FM-flavour, which is now possible with OpenMPT). Cool!

You will be able to listen to the songs that made it past the pre-selection once OpenMPT 1.28 is released. This may still take a few weeks, so anyone who wasn't able to submit their tune in time can of course still upload it and contribute to the release package.
