Awesome, thanks! Yeah, I didn't even really think about VST in depth before blurting it out... makes sense! I'm interested in exploring dynamic soundtracks for games in more detail than what most games do. Usually a dynamic soundtrack is just different prerecorded tracks that are faded in and out based on something simple like location/action, or maybe certain notes and effects are tied to actions and correspond to a beat, such as Rez, but I wanted to take it a step further and basically hand over some of the "composition" to the game itself with the objective that the music would be unique to every playthrough. Perhaps the game design could even be worked around this so that better skill equals better music, as if the player feels like a musician but by playing something unrelated like a Geometry Wars clone or something.

It's not about the opinion, but how it's presented. "Your channel is terrible" isn't constructive feedback - what is the person supposed to learn from that? Tell them what is terrible and why, and maybe how they could improve it. Otherwise it's a pretty useless comment.

(^ meta comment. this tells you how you could have improved your response rather than just saying "I didn't like your reply".)

General Chatter / Re: Upgrading the upgraded splash screen.

How about upgrading the unupgraded splash screen?


EDIT: I think I should also give some criticism.

The first splash screen just doesn't look very appealing. The gradient is too dark and kind of jarring, and the Open MPT logo should have an outline, since it's quite hard to look at. Plus, the screenshot in the background should use the default color scheme and perhaps the small font size, to represent what you see when you first boot it up.

The second one is just way too large. Imagine booting up OpenMPT and just seeing this:



It's too large and empty. There doesn't need to be this much black filler space in it. I think something like this would work better (the alpha channel is kind of constipated but I'll revise this anyway since I don't know what font "OpenMPT" is written in):

I have too much free time.
But honestly, I'm indifferent about changing the splash screen. It's ok as it is. After all, OpenMPT is made for composing, not for looking at the splash screen for 5 seconds. They have more important things to work on.

Ok, sorry, but if OP put youtube channel adress in first post, he want feedback IMO, and I give it. If I dont like thing, I never say WOW for. And repeat again: NOTHING PERSONAL.

herodotas' reaction is certainly not representative of our community. Welcome back!
PS: If you haven't done so already, I'd recommend uploading old tracked stuff to sites like ModArchive.org - that's certainly more appropriate for mod music sharing than YouTube.

Most of that is possible with the library, except for manipulating pattern data (which I guess your third point refers to). libopenmpt does not handle plugins and that would certainly not be a very useful feature for games anyway, as redistributing VST plugins is often not trivial (and more importantly you typically don't have the permission to do so with many plugins).
If you're seriously interested in what is possible and how it can be done, the documentation for each API function can be found at https://lib.openmpt.org/doc/

Nothing personal, you promote your youtube channel here, I just say my opinion like consumer. I'm not a community, but this forum not about gaming.
If you had taken more than ten seconds to look, you would have found my music. Sorry for it being so disorganized, for sure it's a mess of a channel, but there's definitely plenty of music!

It is definitely not the view of the entire community. I'm myself a bit surprised by this post.

Your channel is terrible.
Is this indicative of the community here? If so, maybe I shouldn't bother saying hello...
