You need to ask Jazz to fix his songs.

Is it difficult to implement a silence / empty pattern recognition-routine?
I'll try to gather a bunch of tunes which continue even tho they're supposed not to and see how many they are if it's worth looking into to make such a routine.

It's not silent.

The tracker plays it the same way, so I'm not sure about cutting the song because of empty patterns...

Edit: This will be most of JaZz's songs.

This is indeed a bizzare way of tracking. Maybe these songs were intened for some customized player in a music disk/game/demo? Or edited afterwards and spread broken. (?) I don't know.

Fraggie: Where has your website gone?! Without which, we cannot enjoy your plugins!

this tune seems to muck up the instrument list..that (8 bit - 16) is definitely not in the right spot!

Tested system
=============
OS: Windows 98SE
Memory: 384MB
CPU: Intel Pentium II 400
Sound: ESS Solo-1
Video: Neomagic MagicMedia 256AV
XMPlay version: 3.6.0.41

Bugs
====
When the AHX/HVL plugin is used with Windows Classic 2.1 skin, there are huge gaps between columns in 'AHX/HVL Pattern/Dot-Mode Display' visualization. The bug does not exist when used with Default and Windows Classic 2 skins.

When clicking on the timer, only the hh:mm:ss formats are shown, not order:row formats. When AHX/HVL file is playing, the order:row timer format should be made available, similar to XMPlay's built-in MOD player.

When playing a 1-song AHX/Hively Tracker module (eg: children of pie[1], Virgill-Forsaken[2]), the Length field in General tab is 1 second longer than the song length in the Songs field.

1. Right, the display went crazy because of a non-proportional font.
2. This needs to be addressed in XMPlay first. I believe it already is on Ian's "to do" list. (Probably at the bottom of that list. :) )
3. Rounding mismatch.

1 & 3 I will fix. Thanks for your feedback.

Rev.17 is ready.

 * Fixed pattern display for skins with non-monospace fonts
 * Fixed "Length" field rounding problem

Also updated docs (thanks deus-ex, just took 4 years).

Bugs
====
After installing XMPlay AHX/HVL plugin rev.17, XMPlay does not load AHX or Hively Tracker modules. The 'Open file(s)' dialogue box still recognize the files as XMPlay-able file type, but the plugin itself is not listed in the XMPlay's Input and archive plugins list. The bug does not exist with XMPlay AHX/HVL plugin rev.16.

Please check if you are using the rev.17 update from 13 February (DLL version 0.0.17.1). The release from 11 February had a startup bug.

Version 0.17.0.1 also has the previously reported bug from 0.17.0.0.

Ah, apparently MSVC 10.0 does not produce binaries compatible with Windows98 anymore.

I don't think just changing the minimum OS version number in the PE header will do the trick, so I'll probably need to rebuild this with mingw...

I think in this day and age you can safely require people on Win98 to run KernelEx - many recent programs require this to run under Win98. It only injects the missing APIs into programs and doesn't mess with the installed DLLs. Not having to think of which compiler to use and which APIs are available unter Win9x certainly makes life easier.

Thanks, I was not aware of this software. Can you try this, quanta?

In the meantime I'll try to recompile using mingw anyway. There's no reason to limit the plugin to WinXP or newer since there's hardly any Windows API in use there. Especially if XMPlay itself runs fine.

Hi,

HivelyTracker 1.8 has just been released which includes a couple of new fixes in the replayer. Please update the plugin!

http://www.hivelytracker.co.uk

Edit: And if you could notify me on the hivelytracker forum if and when you do so as I may not see an update posted here :)

Cheers,
Pete

The AHX plugin has been updated to rev.18 following the changes in HivelyTracker 1.8 player. Thanks Xeron.

Also dependencies on MSVC runtime DLLs have been removed.

(Note this is still not the Win98-friendly build. This is taking more effort than I expected...)

The plugin has been updated to version 18.1 to fix a file detection bug you probably never noticed. :)

Any word on whether this is compatible with Win98(SE) yet or not?

Edit: I just tried it, and it seems it isn't... :(
