Re: Universal tracker

I have no problem with any fork, but I don't "own" the sources, and there is no repository.
So ideally, the XA sources will be integrated to AT2 along the Acme sources. I believe Grouik is on this forum, so you should talk about it with him (I'll notify him).

>Does the player support more than one YM chip?

Not this version of the player, but the Z80 player comes in a second flavor that does. Maybe Grouik will be interested in adapting it.

Re: Universal tracker

Hi all, Arkos Tracker 2 Alpha 7 has just been released, with a nice surprise for you: a 6502 player! It was done by Grouik/French Touch. A huge thanks to him! The player he converted is the AKY, which is the fastest, but also which music takes more memory (compromise, always!). You can download the ...

Re: Universal tracker

You don't have to wait for the Minimalist player, you can already check the Lightweight player and see if you understand anything. The Minimalist player will be about the same complexity. Check the AT2 package, all the documented Z80 sources are inside, as well as the definition of the formats.

Re: Universal tracker

Warning, the AKY is only one of the players. It is very fast, but the song takes a large memory (it's a "streamed" player). It may fit some needs (a demo), but may not a game (with longer music, and sound effects). The AKG is "generic" but also more complex. The Lightweight is smaller. In the next v...

Re: Universal tracker

That's too bad, but I understand! Maybe another 6502 coder can convert one of the Z80 player? I can of course help about how the player works (plus, their formats are fully documented), but I know nothing of 6502...

Re: Universal tracker

So 10kb is too much for an Oric production? What is the average for a music+player in your demos/games? If only a few kb max, then AKY is indeed not for you. My Lightweight player would be more appropriate (less possibilities in the music (still better than Vortex), but lower memory footprint for bo...

Re: Universal tracker

Hi all, this is Targhan/Arkos, the creator of Arkos Tracker. As the tracker is still in alpha, I didn't want to spread the word about it too quickly, as I am already drowned in feature requests (and bug reports, yup :)) for the CPC users :). DBug kindly notified about this thread. I don't code in 65...
