Hi there!
please tell me
How is it possible to work openmpt123 with zip or 7z archived modules?

Calling OpenMPT123 with -h or --help switch brings you info about supported formats, and as you can see it can't read from archives

openmpt123 does not support archived modules, you will have to first uncompress them using some other command-line tool.
» No support, bug reports, feature requests via private messages - they will not be answered. Use the forums and the issue tracker so that everyone can benefit from your post.


Also, I have currently no plans to make openmpt123 archive-aware.

If I did, it would probably (and reasonably so, in that case) be expected to support all kinds of weird (and ancient) archive formats, which would in turn demand a probably huge set of dependencies on various archive decompression libraries. I want to avoid going that route for the sake of simplicity and maintainability.

Yeah, i agree with manx, that's an unnecessary bloat to me
