My "tracker".

(1/4) > >>

Metro28:
I have in mind a tracker, called "MetroTracker", which will be based on Schism Tracker

I'll leave this project until I at least know how to compile a big project.

The tracker will have an official MM (MetroModule) format, which will have the same limits as OpenMPT; adding some other options that OpenMPT has (plugins, pattern names, channel names, etc.)

I tried to compile a project but never could.

I will try to make this tracker support most possible formats. (Around more than 40 different formats)


Well I hope I get lucky with this thing considered a "tracker" and that it will be called "MetroTracker".

I don't think I will achieve this dream but I will try.

well it certainly pays to have ambition, but that is nothing without the persistence to make it happen. We all have dreams... I dream of a modplug tracker with visualised samples in the patterns... if I ever learn to program I will try add that to modplug, but I am too much of a dreamer, and I cant focus enough to learn programming. I make art and music, but trying to lean an actual functional programming language always makes me want to die as soon as I get to 'hello world'

I suggest you start small, then the disappointment later will also be smaller. What makes you think that writing a tracker supporting 40 different formats (which is far from "most" possible formats that you could technically implement) and having the same features as MPTM "but just with a different" name would be a good first tracker project to work on? Start with the basics, not a fully- fledged product. OpenMPT is more than 20 years in the making, it's simply completely unreasonable to think that your first personal tracker project should have similar complexity.

NO NO AH NOO D: *has a heart attack and proceeds to die* The idea is that with the updates, I have big changes, it is obvious that my "project" may take a long time to do and that it does not end as intended.

What I want with this tracker is to create your own format (MM) and compress that format as much as possible.
