Does this player distinguish between Ultimate Soundtracker and other versions of 15-sample Soundtackers?
I can't tell for sure. However afaik all other sountrackers were UST ripoffs so there's a chance that many 15 sample songs will be played correctly (maybe except Master Soundtracker mods). To my ears 15 sample mods are played way better with UADE's UST player than WT's external Protracker, but the check routine is very bad and accepts wrong files.

But...! For example Lost Patrol songs play incorrectly with the UST player and play OK with the ProTracker player.

I'll have to look into it a bit more...  ;D

All tunes in aftermentioned archives have silence as first subsong. Is it intentional?
Yes. Future Delix versions will remove empty songs.

There rather should be 4 subsongs but Delix reports 1 in following SoundMon 2.0 tune:

- tunes played incorrectly (silence):
     scumm.alarm
     scumm.teleport_1
     scumm.teleport_2

- at every tune played after:
     scumm.kazoo
     scumm.title
  'emulated CPU goes into the weeds'.

As far as I know SoundMon mods don't have subsongs. Deliplayer probably scans patterns like XMPlay with native mods. The eagleplayer I use doesn't have such capabilities. If you know one that does...

Following MED module is played very quietly even with max amplification +10 dB:
ftp.modland.com/pub/modules/OctaMED MMD2/Monk/no tears.mmd2
It seems like that med is intended to play so silently or there is a bug/unsupported feature in the OctaMED eagleplayer.

This issue is already fixed for the next release.

New stuff in test version 7:

  • Paula compatibility improvements
  • 4 new formats supported: AHX, Thomas Hermann player, Benn Daglish SID player and PowerTracker
  • fixed Fred Editor, Scumm player, AMOS Music Bank, MON player, Darius Zendeh player, Paul Summers player
  • fixed custom players (they shouldn't crash the whole system anymore)
  • many other little (and not so little) bugs squashed

Note: the new file XMP-DELIX.ENV should be put in the same directory as XMP-DELIX.DLL. (Obvious, isn't it?  ;))

I unpacked all files from aforementioned archive and drag'n'droped all MDAT files (mdat.intro_and_title was selected first) into main XMPlay window.
mdat.intro_and_title is rejected with red line and isn't played during evaluation of other MDATs.
Also after I've added other MDATs to playlist while mdat.intro_and_title was played, file began to be played improperly.
Will safe evaluation while playing be implemented?
_______

When unpacked file is unloaded in XMPlay, I cannot delete this file until XMPlay is closed.
_______

Could xmp-zip.dll be in any XMPlay's subdirectory - not only in the same as Delix (I want to have all Delix files in separate folder)?
_______

Please add format info to general info window.

Are you sure you're using the latest version? I can play the Turrican 2 tunes, either from the LHA archive or unpacked without any problems.

And I can delete the files that are loaded, that was fixed in test 7 I think.

I also can play Turrican 2 tunes, but when "mdat.intro_and_title" is played and simultaneously other MDAT tunes are evaluated in playlist, "mdat.intro_and_title" begins to be played  incorrectly.

I cannot delete files when I drag'n'drop more than 1 file at once into XMPlay.

Oh, right. Confirmed I think.
Maybe the TFMX player is doing something strange while evaluating, we'll have to wait for Fraggie to look at that.

This I can't reproduce. Tried to add lotsa different formats, and I can always delete the files, no matter if some file is playing, or not.

Does this xmp-delix.dll fix the problem?

I can't reproduce this... Is it dependant of file format? What archive types are you adding? Does it only happen with archived files? Do you have the latest archive plugins?

Could xmp-zip.dll be in any XMPlay's subdirectory - not only in the same as Delix (I want to have all Delix files in separate folder)?
Currently not. Please wait until there's some configuration window.

Please add format info to general info window.
It's on the TODO list. Really. :)

It seems to be OK now.
However posted earlier VSS issue (various number of subsong for the same file) still appears.

I select several non-packed tunes in Windows 98 Explorer and drag'n'drop them all at once into XMPlay.
Then I cannot delete any tune when files were drag'n'dropped to playlist, or can only delete first (played) tune when files were drag'n'dropped to main XMPlay window.

Does it also happen with not supported files (like .TXT, .DOC etc.) ?

I have 'Verify new files' option active so not supported files aren't added to playlist at all and can be deleted.

When tune has only 1 subsong and I press STOP button and later PLAY button (or HOME key - current track restart), tune is played from stopped point instead from beginning.

This xmp-delix.dll should fix that.

It looks like this song requires an MC68020+ CPU. The Starscream library can't emulate it. (I might look into adding a few 020 instructions. In the FAR future though.)

MED/OctaMED player still has similar issue.
Also when MED has more than 1 subsong, they are played mutely.
