Maybe it is just programmed to stop when it receives input from the shell (stdin)?
Comment by: Thematic ( 20 Jan 2012, 23:43File version: 3.2.0
Strange behaviour (different from what I'm used to on AmigaOS): if I start it _without run_ in shell, and enter another xmp command line before the first one returns, the first one is interrupted. Some sort of detachment maybe?
Comment by: salass00 ( 03 May 2011, 09:55File version: 3.2.0
No, just replacement AHI-Handler. AHI-Handler is just a handler (a simpler type of filesystem) that implements the AUDIO: interface that the Amiga port of xmp uses. The interface is somewhat similar to OSS on linux which makes rewriting linux audio code that uses OSS audio system to use AUDIO: usually very simple.

The AHI-Handler replacement I was testing was supposed to be a total rewrite of the original AHI one to be more portable and have some new features. I'll probably get back to working on it again at some point.

replacement ahi driver?
Comment by: salass00 ( 01 May 2011, 13:01File version: 3.2.0
Tested and it works fine on my Sam440EP. I can't check now but it's possible that I had simply forgot to put back the original AHI-Handler in L: after having tested a replacement AHI-Handler that I was working on some time ago and this was causing the problems with xmp.

What happens when AHI is occupied anyway by another program? Here it runs through the module at 100x rate without error (message), ostensibly decoding it.

Something appears to be broken in this version because I can't get to play anything. It just prints the initial file info stuff and then stops (I can see that there is some CPU usage but no audio is produced and the current position in the CLI isn't being updated).

Also this program could really use a stack cookie.

xeron, that's very true. i just read the midi part, my tired eyes skipped the
mmd1 part.
Comment by: xeron ( 26 Nov 2007, 19:54File version: 2.5.0-pre5
mmd1 is med not midi

"Several MMD1 files play at half the intended tempo"
Don't use this player for MIDI files.
Use Curty's midi plugin for TuneNet instead, it does a better job by far!

The MIDI bug reports should be sent to the author of XMP.

I'm working on making this into a TuneNet plug-in, but bear with me... it might
have to wait until 2.6.
Comment by: Thematic ( 26 Nov 2007, 06:54File version: 2.5.0-pre5
Several MMD1 files play at half the intended tempo, despite that xmp
"Estimated time" seems to be correct. Example:

What's wrong with the MED support?
Comment by: Thematic ( 26 Nov 2007, 05:09File version: 2.5.0-pre5
Don't hold your breath about MED playback. But some of my favourite DBM were
listenable, that's great!

If it crashes, try raising the stack. I'll fix this once i know how much stack
it uses.
