I learned of this tune through the comments section of Vanello's spacesynth song Constellation Melody. After hearing the original song, I decided to remix it while paying homage to Constellation Melody.

It was made in just two days using ScreamTracker. I ended up using all ten channels, as you can't save it with more than that. I used primarily OPL instruments and percussion from some of Raina's chiptunes. I even attempted my own percussion near the end of the song!

If anything i sorta kinda like this functionality, it can bring some inspiration when you have totally no idea for a title (i know there are tons of generators like this online though)

It's his actual nickname (as you can see he hasn't logged into this forum for more than 6 years). He ran modplug.com since the very beginning, when it was still relevant and when it was stil a lot of work to run such a site. Back then the site was pretty nifty, with a huge music download section and other stuff. But at some point the server crashed and there were no backups, so since then modplug.com has been more or less a placeholder site with questionable additional content such as online Sudoku, which was added (IIRC) when the Sudoku craze was getting big and everyone was looking for online Sudokus (so yes, I'm sure this mostly exists to generate ad revenue). It irks me that this page hasn't been used for anything useful (i.e. redirecting to openmpt.org) for more than ten years, and no, putting different content on it won't solve the problem. It will only confuse the people actually looking for OpenMPT/ModPlug Tracker, as this thread has proven. There is simply no point in having different content on modplug.com because everything needed by OpenMPT users is already on openmpt.org.

Is MisterX intentionally called this way because his name is not to be uncovered or is that actually his nickname? ;) In which way is he related to Modplug / Olivier L. ?

Thanks guys, that answers my question. I realized that if one uses decent instruments with good loops (GUS patches maybe? I'm not a musician) this shouldn't be all that much of an issue in practice.

As I already wrote in reply to LPChip: No, it won't break existing songs. When removing non-standard features, I always make sure that they can still be used with legacy files.
Yeah, I posted without reading, but I did edit it accordingly. That was fast, though.

However, your complaints have been successful, in the next OpenMPT version you won't be able to use the extra OPL3 waveforms in S3M files, even though it makes the code more complex.

I'm okay with the S3M extensions, I was just curious. For compatibility, that's what we've Compatibility Export for.

Also, this move would've actually broken compatibility with OpenMPT-extended S3Ms using OPL3 waveforms if you weren't as careful as you were.

I see absolutely no point in turning it into a SPA or put any different kind of content there, since the site has been stale for years. This may sound harsh but from what I can see, the only reason modplug.com doesn't point to openmpt.org is that it creates ad revenue which OpenMPT developers don't see a single cent of.

Yes, it is very much intentional that envelopes always run at the same speed (being processed on every tick of the row). I mean, if we lived in a perfect world where some laws of physics didn't apply the speed change in playing samples wouldn't happen but since that is not the case, I would say the way samples behave is a "necessary evil", not the way instrument envelopes behave. Some synthesizers allow a sample-like effect on envelopes: They have a parameter which changes the envelope speed based on the note played, so the envelope could last longer (or even shorter if you use a different value!) if you play them at a lower octave. However, this principle is somewhat incompatible with how envelopes work in modules so it's currently not possible to have this as a feature in OpenMPT.
