Hello!
Can't this plugin recognize files other way than only by extension?
It doesn't play "*.c", "*.etc", "*.mt3", "*.sna" - but when I rename these to "*.sqt", "*.cop", "*.pt3", "*.stc" accordingly, it plays. "ZX Tune" player recognize and plays these files with no matter what extension do they have.

Currently - no. This restriction was added intentionally to speed up some things. I'll see what I can do here. There probably needs to be a settings window where users can choose if they want that functionality or not, and have the ability to modify the supported extensions list.

I see. Thank you!
It'd be nice to have this option.

The new version (v3.8.3) of XMPZXTUNE is out!

Notable changes:
    - added: config window (support for whitelisting/blacklisting extensions and some other stuff, see README.TXT for more details)
    - added: partial support for RASTER Music Tracker (some *.rmt files still cannot be loaded)

Also see upstream ZXTune changes/fixes in README.TXT.

Downloads, details & full changelog:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xmpzxtune/files/xmpzxtune/v3.8.3/

Now it can. You need to check "Try to load any non-built-in extension" checkbox in the plugin's config window.


I'd wish to see stripped down version which supports only zx spectrum specific formats
Now it's possible to whitelist a set of extensions in config window. All other built-in extensions will not be loaded.


thanks for your work, is it possible to add support for vgz and rsn?
These extensions are now built-in, but now you can also put any non-built-in extension in the Extra List, and they will be loaded by the plugin.


I may have went a little overboard with the configuration options, but now they cover most of the use cases (as shown above). I tried to make everything self-explanatory, but, just in case, the README section "File loading" contains more info.

This .vgm file crashes the plugin but works in ZXTune.

The "XMPZXTUNE (3.8.3)" plugin crashed while attempting to open the following file:

Thanks for your help

I can't reproduce it. I drop the zip file into XMPlay and it shows 64 tracks and I can play all of them: https://imgur.com/a/J5FsRLh

Do you know why I don't have the subsong line?

Did you try to separate subsongs (right click on a file > Separate subsongs)? Also, if you load a file from a network then you need to start (play) the file first to enable "Separate subsongs" menu item.

On your screenshot there are two playlist entries. I can only assume you have some zip-file plugin that unpacks zip files and adds extracted files to the playlist. However, XMPZXTUNE can (and sometimes needs to) process zip-files by itself (to load files with *.zip extension you'll need to enable "Try to load any extension" option in the XMPZXTUNE settings). For example, I have no other plugins installed and when I drop that zip-file into XMPlay and separate subsongs I get all 64 tracks at once. But in this case there's really no difference - you may as well separate subsongs in each of those two *.hes files individually.

Please can you play the same file with this plugin : https://github.com/FIX94/xmp-gme/releases/download/v0.41-fork/xmp-gme.dll

With this plugin it shows 256 tracks, many are empty but I can play some tracks (example: 35) that you can't play with your plugin, please can you take a look?

It seems like ZXTune only supports 32 sub-tracks from HES files. This number is hardcoded:
https://bitbucket.org/zxtune/zxtune/src/d39a18c7fcab5388195abaaba49730a8596ee939/src/formats/multitrack/hes.cpp?at=r4280&fileviewer=file-view-default#hes.cpp-73

I changed it to 256 and the rest of the tracks became accessible. Try this version:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/xmpzxtune/files/test/xmp-zxtune-v3.8.3-hes256.7z/download

Note, that it does not have an ability to skip through empty tracks.

Yes, only the current versions of Windows are supported (i.e. Windows 10). I don't have resources to support the older versions.
