WinAHX loops differently than beta7 (more naturally).

Beta 8 is up.

Here are the changes:
 - amplification fix now works correctly for both AHX and HVL songs (new gain values calculated by Xeron)
 - loop detector improved (fixes Icebraker's "classic cracktro" loop and removes fake loops in some m0d's songs)
 - silence detector improved (fixes Jazz's "rembo sjort")

ftp://ftp.modland.com/pub/modules/AHX/Starbuck/noise%20intro.ahx should play a bit longer...
The problem is the following: pattern #002 row #03 contains an F00 command and the plugin stops playback, instead of playing the last notes in their full length...

Edit:
Hmmm seems like Fraggie stopped developing plugin 'till Hively 1.3 release...

You can now play around with beta 9.

Changes since previous release:
 - volume ramping for output that's smoother than a baby's arse!***
 - interpolation doesn't kill so much high frequency sounds now and is enabled by default
 - much faster seeking and playtime calculation (especially visible with HVL songs)
 - effect F00 is now being ignored (fixes Starbucks "noise intro" and Pink's "holla")
 - infinite songs are played for 120 seconds (Pink's "holla")
 - surround effect tweaked (again...)

*** - ramping handles currently only instrument change and set volume command, but still it does help a lot for some songs.

I found a win32 ahx replayer; its creator claims that it's perfect and the bugfixes are based on original Amiga code.

as we`ve worked on the "nOiSe #2" music disk, we`ve noticed that the
Windows AHX replayer from Bartman wasn`t perfect. there were several
sound bugs here and there and so we`ve contacted Dexter of Abyss to
get the original Amiga AHX replayer source. with that source
Fillbert fixed all the bugs and now u can enjoy the original AHX
sound with all features. be sure we will release a version with a
nice GUI in the near future so stay tuned...
(file dates are 04/08/2006 but still no musicdisk:)

Edit: Of course I found a bug in it... ;D

We all know what is the reference AHX player on Windows. ;)


Anyways, speaking about the xmp-ahx, it seems that bugs have stopped comming...

Right. XMP-AHX even plays MjK's "Happy vibes" well, and I think that one bugged all of the existing windows replayers so far.

I think I know what's going on. The plugin puts no "Length" entry in General Info window and that's what the Mirc script is looking for. It's... doable. :)

I don't know if it's the AHX or if there's a bug in your plugin, but the file I attached effectively annoys the crap out of me starting at 0:46. The same notes keep playing until it loops back to the beginning. Other files do this, too, but not necessarily at 0:46. The files were from an LHA on ExoticA, "JaZz{Jolly}.lha" (there are other problems, like the fact I can't extract one of the files because it has a question mark in the file name). (linky)

AHX 2.3 editor plays your song exactly the same way as the plugin.

Regarding the other problem: you can use XMPlay's LHA plugin instead of unpacking files manually - I think it should have no problems extracting files with quesion marks in them (it doesn't need to write files to disk).

Revision 10 of the AHX plugin is now available.

Changes since beta9 include:
- A pattern viewer!
- "Length" field for the mIRC script
- File type provided for playlist/library
- Upgraded to XMPlay 3.4 interface

Note: You need at least XMPlay version 3.4.0.3. The latest stuff revision should be fine. :)

That's because you need the latest release from the /stuff/ directory (http://un4seen.com/stuff/xmplay.exe). At the time of this posting, that is version 3.4.0.5.

The latest official release (http://www.un4seen.com/files/xmplay34.zip) is only 3.4.0.0.

Thanks for this great plugin. However, I don't get the pattern display to work for HVL files, only for AHX. I get a big empty space where the pattern should scroll by (and does for MOD and AHX). I have the latest version of XMP and the plugin. What am I missing?
