Hi everybody.

I have published new RMT version1.27

RMT website

 

Changes in RMT 1.27

-------------------

 

- Support for another external Pokey sound emulation provided by apokeysnd.dll

by Fox/Taquart (http://asap.sourceforge.net/apokeysnd.dll).

Description of apokeysnd.dll functions is in the readme.txt file.

Note: If both Pokey DLLs are placed to RMT directory, usage of apokeysnd.dll

has higher priority than sa_pokey.dll.

- New menu "Undo" with support for Undo/Redo (up to 100 steps) and ClearHistory.

(There is Alt+Backspace hotkey for undo operation.)

(requested by LiSU)

- New options in Config dialog (menu View - Configuration):

* TrackEdit cursor vertical range ... there can be selected value from 0 to 8

for vertical cursor movement in trackedit area. (default is 6)

* Reset of Atari sound routine when ESC is pressed. (default is off)

(suggested by Miker)

- New TrackEdit and SongEdit hotkeys:

* Control+PageUp ... Move cursor to begin of subsong or begin of previous subsong.

* Control+PageDown ... Move cursor to begin of next subsong.

(suggested by Miker)

- New buttons in block effect/tool dialog (menu Block - Effect/tools or Ctrl+F):

* "Try" ... Perform the selected effect but no close effect dialog (Alt+T)

* "Restore" ... Restore block to original state (Alt+R)

* "Play/Stop" ... Play the selected block repeatedly / stop playing (Alt+P)

(suggested by LiSU)

- Function "Change all the instrument occurences" improved:

* Checkbox "Only in some channels"

with special dialog box for L1..R4 channels selection.

* Checkbox "Only in songlines" for songlines from/to selection.

Important note: If some tracks are used inside and outside of selected

channels+songlines area and instrument changes should be performed,

new tracks will be created for changes in selected area only

and song will be adjusted automatically.

(suggested by Sal Esquivel)

- New function "Reload" in menu Project.

After confirmation it discards all changes since your last save.

- Prepared last used filename in "Save As" dialog.

- Support for new FEAT options.

"File - Export As - RMT stripped song file (*.rmt)" there are two new checkboxes:

* "GlobalVolumeFade support" (RMTGLOBALVOLUMEFADE variable)

(requested by Dely)

* "No starting songline" (start from songline 0 always)

- Bugfix of Path setting for loading/saving of songs/instruments/tracks.

- Bugfix of lines' coordinates in "Song columns' order change/copy/clear" dialog.

- Bugfix of default extensions addition.

- Other small corrections and bugfixes.

 

RMT routine changes

- New rmt_feat option FEAT_GLOBALVOLUMEFADE (+7 bytes).

If it is activated, there is possible to control global song volume

via RMTGLOBALVOLUMEFADE variable ($00-$f0, step $10):

$00=normal volume (100%) ... $f0=minimal volume (0%).

Example is in "/asm_src/volume/" directory.

- New size optimalization option supported:

FEAT_NOSTARTINGSONGLINE (it can save 22 or 24 bytes) for song starting

from songline 0 always (no support for songline init by A-register).

For example "/asm_src/optim/musico.xex" is 22 bytes shorter now.

(Coders, you have to use new rmtplayr.a65 and rmt_feat.a65)

Wow!

 

Thanks for new version, and I have little hope that next version will look like:

Little suggestion: don't stop music play when changed or loaded a new instrument.

Hey raster.. Nice release.. Tons of included music..

 

I am noticing that RMTPLAYER crashes on the first note, when playing songs that are "200hz"..

 

I am runing it on an NTSC 320k XE with stereo pokeys.

 

I am launching RMTPLAYER from SpartaDOS 3.2D...

Great songs...! Miker, you get used to converting YM-tracks from ST... ;) But your Flower Mania title track is still a killer... a real classic...you will see in some years... ;)

RMTPLAYER (RMTPL106.XEX) wasn't changed for two years.

I think there can be a problem with NTSC and 200Hz, because 1/4 of NTSC frame hasn't enough CPU time for player operations in some cases.

Well it loads the song, plays the first note (endlessly) and crashes.. You have to press reset to get out of it..
