Just to make one thing clear, the SourceForge download doesn't include the (closed-source) MO3 library.

I want to thank both of you for your great effort. :)

You're both doing a great job!

Thanks! :)

Yes, excellent job! I've been busy at work making use of the flat symbol as you can see. Some of my other favorite things about .53:

1. No more accidental order shifting when clicking the far side of the order list. What a pain that was!

2. Default for new instruments' volume control is set to none (and can be set in the .ini if i want?).

3. Inputting notes via MIDI keyboard should now sound the notes.

BTW, we are all interested in your plans as you guys work on them. Perhaps a little note in the Development corner that lets us know what you're trying to implement.... :)

Keep up the good work!

well, my current plans are...
- compo cleanup mode (remove panning and stuff for creating sample packs)
- sample drawing
- echo paste (pasting pattern data won't stop at the bottom of a pattern anymore, useful for echoes)
- compatibility fixes

Thanks. Nice work ...!!

As concerning next things, I favor the sample drawing function.
It could make OMPT really independent of any external resources. Basic, and therefore quite educational.

+ <jojo> Can now import MO3 files using external library. (rev. 248)

When I read that, the thought that Modplug Tracker can open MO3 files popped into my head. That changed, however, when I read the text below.

Just to make one thing clear, the SourceForge download doesn't include the (closed-source) MO3 library.

That made me think differently. So essentially, I am not sure if Modplug Tracker can open MO3 files directly, but I doubt that it can.
As for a rating, I am not exactly sure how to rate it. I was contemplating choosing the middle [radio] button, but, in a sense, I also wanted to choose the "slightly worse" button because I discovered that [unless I am doing something wrong] holding down keyboard shortcuts does not work. OK, I believe that is solved now, disregard that part [the part about the rating]. I think that I have made my decision now, the middle one. Thanks, Self for looking that up! No prob, Mr. Weird
It looks like the new version can open MO3 files if unmo3.dll is loaded (probably in Modplug Tracker's root directory), but for whatever reason, I cannot seem to find unmo3.dll (a download for it). I thought that would be an easy task. I was quickly proven wrong. :lol: Does anyone know where I can download the file. If you already have a copy and are willing to send me one, that would be great too. My e-mail address is removed (though you probably already knew that).

Edit by mod: Removed your email adress, you do not want to post it so openly, cus it will cause spamming

That worked, thanks! Now I can extract game music directly with Modplug Tracker! I guess that is what I will be using the new version for! I can make suites from MO3 files without using an external [I guess that would mean nonModplug Tracker] MO3 decoder!

Amazing!

I will download this version later, my main computer crashed so I am taking a slight time off making music. (yeah right!)

I absolutely love the fact that OMPT is still being developed.

we had license issue with it Rakib, the old system was completely removed, and there is some new one implemented apparently.
