uncloned, DOSBox 0.72 is the latest version with more speedups and stuff :D btw, it's no wonder that it doesn't work with 3000 cycles... :P set the cycles to something higher or set them to "max" (dunno if that exists in 0.65), and, most important: use the GUS mode, since that needs the least processing power (hardware mixing is emulated faster than the software mixing).

@ Sam

http://clones.soonlabel.com/public/ft209/ft209.zip

I believe this is the original distribution zip file.

amazing to think that such a powerful program can be less than the size of a 360k floppy when compressed. All hail assembler programming!

What is PMP?

and.. I still have a copy of FT101 from 1993. (it is older I bet - that is probably the date I DL'd it - jan of 93))

That's the tracker Bill Clinton used ;) err - more likely his cat socks.

And that means my first mods were older than 1993 - my first ones used a memory resident editor (modedit?) and you had to save and open a dos shell to hear your work. That was tedious and certainly forced composing by hearing stuff in your head.

Thanks JoJo - I'll give that a try. As I remember one version had trouble after 0.65 so I didn't bother with it - and obviously haven' looked in a while.

Thanks a lot for 2.09 !

The size : yep, indeed assembler programming.. Very efficient.
In those times lotsa compressed games, like 6 different pinball tables, fitting on just one or two 1.4 diskettes.

I started with FT 2.00 in 95. Didn't need a dosbox or -shell, it was just running on a DOS 6.22 machine.
I know I did tracker things before that, with a FT1 version, or another editor, but traces of that are lost in my archive.

I recall 'modedit', but wasn't this for the first windoze environment ? Later I added Win 3.11 on that machine.
There was Mod4Win, which was just terrible.

PMP was added to the package as a stand-alone DOS-player of tracker files, like MPP with MPT.

modedit was meant to be used outside of windows.

It looks like the player was memory resident... so many years ago now.

perhaps we should put up an old tracker thread in general

This is an awesome track, Harbinger! I really like it - it's got "oomph". :)

Interesting track -- I like the actual melodic part coming in around 3:45.

On the tracker discussion, if you're looking to use fasttracker again, try Milkytracker.  It's available for a number of different operating systems, and has some great features while being true to fasttracker.  (I think the link is www.milkytracker.net )  Also, you can draw your own waveforms or choose from standard forms for easy chip-tune creation.  Great piece of software.  (I still use MPT, though.)  And, of course, it has the oscilliscopes.
