Calling OpenMPT123 with -h or --help switch brings you info about supported formats, and as you can see it can't read from archives https://i.imgur.com/TkSrJ9N.png

openmpt123 does not support archived modules, you will have to first uncompress them using some other command-line tool.
ยป 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
