QuoteWell, it would be much nicer to have some commands like panning working directly with plugins

Since this has been the case since like forever, there are two possible things to do:- Remove VSTi support from XM alltogether (that's what I prefer)

QuoteIt would be great to have some statistics how many people use VST's with XM's.
Quoteideally MPTM would provide ability to choose between XM and IT commands.
Quote from: JojoCommands that work are volume and portamento up/down. I have experimental panning control (also with envelopes, random variation and so on) and arpeggio code, but it's far from perfect.
QuoteWell, I was mainly thinking about VSTi here as a first step, because as we can all see here, VSTis never worked as intended in the XM format (I checked with OpenMPT 1.17.02.54 and it does the same). Of course most portions of the code concerning VST also handle VSTi, but f.e. as a first step, the note events could be prevented from being sent to VSTis, effectively keeping people from using VSTis in XM files.
Quote from: psishock on February 02, 2011, 21:13:51Just for clarification, can we have a list of fully working effects somewhere?
QuoteIndeed. Is there a list of working commands to trigger VSTi's that I can look at ? Moving on from the XM format I want to make sure I'm using the correct commands.
Quote from: psishock on February 02, 2011, 22:37:42I would say we should go radical in this question Relabs. Compatibility is a very important question.Sure it went like this for years, but ultimately if you apply a modplug-only extension to any of the legacy format, it will become straight broken. Other trackers may or may not even load it. All the extended controls should be grayed out in them.
