Re: Pygmy Project - Logic.

I just take a look now and again, if I feel like doing it. If it's an interesting hunt then I'll be more motivated to finish it. Explains why I haven't looked at some things since 2003!

Re: Pygmy Project - G-Force

It has been ripped, by Gryzor: http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/file.php?id=68807 He's correct, I took a look; the samples are delta-encoded, and the other parts of the tune are scattered in different places throughout the code, just like Gryzor says. It's funny that Pygmy Projects only have three know...

Re: Pygmy Project - Logic.

Sure, here they are , but they're not really "packed", they're just Protracker modules with a mild tweak to stop them loading in Protracker. This is what fixes them, no real packing or unpacking involved: import sys, struct for modname in sys.argv[1:]: with open(modname, 'rb+') as fh: # halve sampl...

Re: Pygmy Project - Logic.

Hmm, according to my hard drive, I already had a look at Skizzo Demo 2 in March 2003, but didn't finish. Looking back on the forum, it was also discussed then: https://www.exotica.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=173 - and Asle finished it! The GPMO modules are exactly the same as Protracker, except...

Re: Pygmy Project - Logic.

I still use DeliTracker and EaglePlayer on the Amiga, now emulated with FS-UAE . On desktops/laptops I use UADE , on my phone I use Droidsound-E , XMP or ZXTune . The music comes from UnExoticA (naturally!) or Modland or AMP . I don't know how bad your hard drive crash was, but you can go to crazy l...

Re: Pygmy Project - Logic.

I happen to be looking at this, and this is the format so far - I'm stuck at the same place Asle was, I just need to decipher the notes format. SGT format - only used in Pygmy Projects "Logic" demo at Assembly '95 Overall format - 4 bytes: how many bytes of note data (ND) - 4 bytes: how many bytes o...

Improved Fuzzball rip

The music from Fuzzball does not play in EaglePlayer, UADE, DroidSound-E, etc. The tunes do play in DeliTracker. Were the existing rips were done correctly? I looked at the original game disk: title music is 10898 bytes loaded from sector 934 (offset $74C00) ingame music is 27332 bytes loaded from s...

It turned out to be ProPacker 2.1, so I documented it in the wiki: https://www.exotica.org.uk/wiki/ProPack ... ile_format

Bob Wakelin has died

http://www.pcgamer.com/esteemed-cover-artist-bob-wakelin-has-passed-away/ R.I.P. He'll be remembered for the striking cover art he created for hundreds of games (all published by Ocean, or am I wrong?) What was your favourite?

Re: Disposable Hero demo rip: BWB ?

And finally I wrote that unpacker! It was on the TODO list for 8 years in 2003, so it has been a goal that took 21 years to achieve! I had to do a lot more reverse-engineering of the replayer to understand the format. But I was right, it was a Protracker packer. It's quite interesting, because it ha...

New Protracker packer format?

I was ripping the intro tune from "Scoopex Plays 2 Unlimited" (1993) and found what looks like a new protracker packed format -- it's exactly the protracker replayer with changes to accomodate the packed format. However, it's not one recognized by ProWizard or NoiseConverter. Does anyone recognize t...

Did you know Fred Fish died in 2007?

I only recently found out. I'll miss him, his disks were excellent and I wouldn't be such a UNIX whiz if it weren't for his efforts with ADE and GeekGadgets at bringing Unix to the Amiga. I thought it was daft to have ixemul.library talking directly to filesystem handlers instead of using the AmigaD...
