Quote from: Saga Musix on July 17, 2020, 22:14:02Nice interface, but I'd be much happier if you used the official API for requesting data from ModArchive. From what I can see you did not request an API key.I'm also a bit puzzled about the lack of mobile support and the reasoning behind it. libopenmpt is all but slow; it can mix hundreds of channels even on a sub-GHz machine when compiled natively, so it's certainly not a lack of optimization. Running it in a browser is a bit different story of course, but I tested the ModArchive online player on a recent Android phone and it works flawlessly even with demanding mod files. So if you don't get enough performance out of it, you might be doing something wrong (maybe using too small audio buffers, or not using the WebAssembly version of libopenmpt which is certainly faster than pure asm.js, but even asm.js should be fast on browsers that support it), but it's certainly not the case that libopenmpt is poorly optimized.

Maybe older/slower devices have issues, but that wouldn't seem like a good reason to exclude all mobile devices from using the site, to be honest.
QuoteAnd uhm.. We don't exclude all mobile devices from using the site. We just show a message that says "it might not work on your mobile device". You can proceed to play anyway.
