So, Muerto sent me this music demo with GPMO packed musics. First, the disk is crypted and I was not able to uncrypt it. So the rip was done in memory. This is important to note because I'm not sure this GPMO is stored on the disk.
Now, This musicdisk is very much alike the Megamix's of Kefrens. i.e. it always has two music at the same time in memory so that the replaying doesn't stop. In this case, the musics are very small and ripping them all in memory can turn out to be mindbombing !. I've sent you but a few examples Muerto. Sorry.
About the musicdisk : Code by Tax. Crunch player by Tax & Twm, musics by Jail (Jakob Langgaard).
Last music by The White Noise. It was released at TCC93 by Gnu Design. Name of the prod is Skizzo Demo 2.
About the so-called format (GPMO). It's absolutly the same as Protracker save for :
- 4 extra bytes at the beginning being the whole file size
- M.K. being replaced by GPMO
- volumes in sample desc are *2
That's it.... That's the reason why I really would like a disk rip instead. I tried what I could but I'm really not enough skilled for that.. Debugging 68k is somewhat too hard for me .
I'll see to have a complete (memory) rip but that wont be easy. I've added this GPMO into Prowiz4PC .. if someone wants to give it a try ...
simple directory listing, sector data EOR'd with "SmII", files packed with GNU Packer 1.2 or something called "OBJT".asle wrote:That's it.... That's the reason why I really would like a disk rip instead.
Here's the disk extractor and the unpacked mods. http://kyz.mine.nu/misc/skizzo.lha
so, It's the same as Protracker save :
- M.K. replaced by GPMO
- Volumes *2 in sample desc
(no more 4 extra bytes in the beginning .
Thanks again, Kyz, for your help.
I don't recommend a new player at all, it would be like having a deliplayer for Promizer or The Player... it's a protracker pack format.Muerto wrote:any news about the last module in the demo?? new player!!!
I've ripped the player code and worked out all the details of the format except for the sample compression. If Asle would like to take what I've got and make something for his pw4pc that will convert the track data into protracker patterns, I'll work on the details of the sample compression, which can finally be added to unpack the sample data.

Sorry to be late . I didn't see before today I was asked to do something (email !!). Anyway, I've dl-ed this .lha and I've worked hard to include this format into PW4PC. Now, it's done.
off-topic sentence : new source of PW4PC which includes this depacker is available here : http://asle.free.fr/prowiz/
Here's the depacked music :
now, some remarks about this format. First, I find the output (volume) pretty poor (read low). Next, it's fairly safe to say there wont be any other example since there can be but one note possible and but two tracks. Hum .. also these effects that pack themselves one after another is extremly disturbing. This module uses this feature only for Set Speed and Set BPM at the same time .. so two tracks do the trick. My converter doesn't go farther than that.
Some1 tell me if something's wrong .
