XMPZXTUNE - chiptune plugin for XMPlay
« on: 19 Apr '15 - 08:29 »
I made a plugin for XMPlay based on ZXTune library (http://zxtune.bitbucket.org/). This plugin adds a support for several chiptune/tracker module formats (ZX Spectrum AY/YM modules, Amiga/Atari/PC Engine tracker modules, SID, SAA1099, POKEY modules, NES, SNES, Game Boy, TurboGrafX music formats and some more). For a full list of supported formats look here: http://zxtune.bitbucket.org/info/features/

The project is located at:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xmpzxtune/

This plugin is just a wrapper around libzxtune, so basically all credit goes to the developer of ZXTune.

The plugin supports the following extensions: $b, $m, ahx, as0, asc, ay, ayc, bin, cc3, chi, cop, dmm, dsq, dst, esv, fdi, ftc, gam, gamplus, gbs, gtr, gym, hes, hrm, hrp, lzs, m, msp, mtc, nsf, nsfe, p, pcd, psc, psg, psm, pt1, pt2, pt3, s, sap, scl, sid, sqd, sqt, st1, st3, stc, stp, str, szx, td0, tf0, tfc, tfd, tfe, tlz, tlzp, trd, trs, ts, txt, vgm, vtx, ym.

Limitations:
    - Internet streaming is not supported.
    - No support for looping of any kind.
    - No configurable options available.

The plugin supports XMPlay v3.8.

The latest version of XMPZXTUNE and the corresponding changelog are available here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xmpzxtune/files/xmpzxtune/

ZXTune can't play them too, so there's nothing I can do. You may want to report this problem at ZXTune issue tracker:
https://bitbucket.org/zxtune/zxtune/issues?status=new&status=open

Current subsong number in title isn't updated after end of previous subsong.

When second subsong is played should be displayed "2/2" but still is "1/2"

Ah, now I see it, it only appears when subsongs are not separated. Ok, I'll look into it.

it is a stupid question but, why the plugin name without the script '-' ?
it didnt match the xmplay plugins designation and seems ugly.
I know that exist other one with the 'xmp-zxtune' name that is the proper name, but 'xmpzxtune' seems horrible to the eyes....
