Schism Tracker 2010/02/02

by Storlek

Schism Tracker is an editor and player for tracked music (IT, XM, S3M, MOD, etc.), heavily based on the look and feel of the DOS program Impulse Tracker.

Schism Tracker is a free reimplementation of Impulse Tracker, a program used to create high quality music without the requirements of specialized, expensive equipment, and with a unique "finger feel" that is difficult to replicate in-part. The player is based on a highly modified version of the Modplug engine, with a number of bugfixes and changes to improve IT playback.

-Using pbsds's spiffy icon. Thanks!
-No longer crashes at startup when loaded with Bannerbomb. (Still crashes at exit.)
-Initial support for Doom .mus files, added by request of SandMan. No drums, and it doesn't do pitchbends, but it's a start.
-Display changed to default to YUV overlay (much faster!)
-Fixed a bunch of file load and playback bugs
