zinger, would you ever consider donating any of your music to any University projects I might do? I'm doing a degree in animation and I might need some background music.

You'd be fully credited (in the credits) and I wouldn't be making any profits from it. I'd show you sample animations first, and you could decide off that. Also this wouldn't be happening for possibly a year. But no worrys if you don't want to, just a thought.
I'm always up for stuff like that! Just tell me when and what style you want, and I'll try my best. Glad you like it. :)

I have severe problems with TFM MM and my screen enlarger ZoomText 8.1. The problem is that when unzoomed it's ok, but if you are zooming in even the slightest then the screenupdate takes several seconds, , a keypress are shown 5-10 seconds later etc, and it gets even worse when the song is playing. The screen updates the tracker window every 30th or so row. And that's not very effective to say the least. Screen gets garbled in some cases etc...

Sorry, I can't help in this case. I can't provide compatibility with all third-party software (I even heard about ZoomText first time). And in case with such type of third-party software, it's problem of that software, because TFM MM works like any other Windows application, and it's wrong to fix editor instead of software, which must work with any Windows applications.

To get correct speed out of TFM MM module player, Timer B must be loaded with BBh, then it should play at 50Hz near exactly.

Work progress slowly.

Currently I'm trying to fix all that I broke after previous updates (mostly after implementing redefine keys system). Because of that, tracker currently in unusable state.

For SMD version, not much were made. I together with Alone Coder ported *.tfc player in C, so FM now can be played on M68K side. That will simplify later tests with combining FM/PSG/DAC and also removes some limitations of Z80 version (in C version music data can be placed anywhere in ROM).

Hey all!

First of all, I'd like to send BIG THANKS to Shiru for the amazing work. I've been looking for a software like this for ages. I'm sure that this is the beginning of a new mega drive music scene.

I'll be posting my songs here soon :)

Thanks!
So lame, that I can encode mp3 files.
