Announcement   Announcement : The Great TuneNet plugin Competition!
   posted by spotUP on 26-Apr-2009 23:18:48 (2296 reads)
Why:
A while ago i received a great donation from the Polish Amiga community. Thanx!
At the time i had serious money trouble, so I thought I'd need every single cent to make it through the month, but in the end an angel saved me. Thanx dad! ;)

I've been thinking of a good way to spend some of this money and at the same time give something back to those who donated.



What:
Make a plugin for TuneNet for any of these formats.

A SID plugin based on libSID2 + resid. ***
Konami GX sound player plugin.
Wonderswan plugin based on In_WSR.
A mod plugin based on XMP.
A plugin for playing SAM Coupe music based on SAAEmu and libSAASound.

*** If you add the distortion patches + STIL database support i'll add another 5 euro to the award.

Rules:

* Mail your plugin to spotup at gmail dot com. Include exe and source.
* The winner is the first one that mails a plugin. I will reward the first 3 though.
* The plugin+source will be published on os4depot after the competition.
* One coder may submit more than one plugin.

Resources:
Links to the sources and lots of info can be found in this thread:
http://amigaworld.net/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=24407&forum=32
Post #1 contains all the info and links, but some valuable info might be hidden deep in the thread.

Deadline:
The competition goes on until I have received 3 plugins.

Prizes:
The prizes ain't huge, but i am not rich, and some prices are better than none right? :D

1. 15 euro.
2. 10 euro.
3. 10 euro.

The prices will be sent via PayPal only. So make sure you have an account.

Good Luck!

SID sounds useful, but the other formats seem too obscure to be useful for 99% of the music playing population...

the xmp player support a lot of mod formats from many platforms. including the classic amigas.
the others are obscure, yes, but them being exotic is kind of appealing too.
wonderswan is a japanese handheld console, that outputs bleeps we haven't heard much of here. i love exploring cool chiptune formats, sure, not everyone does. but tunenet already supports all the normal boring formats anyway. ;)

@jahc

XMP is the most useful - it can play OctaMED modules. However, it requires some modification of the code to make it work as a plugin. The author has agreed to do some modification (actually IIRC he was going to rewrite most of it), but last time we exchanged emails he was way to busy to work on it.

Yes, but they are a self-confessed kludge.

I'm not saying it can't be done, just that it will need a fair amount of work.

Writing a XMP plugin for TuneNet is very much possible.

I've been quite busy with my studies recently but all that ends in a couple of weeks. I should be able to start work on an XMP plugin then if not sooner. So far I've only had time to compile the latest XMP and look a little into the feasibility of this project.

UADE really really rocks. I have been trying to port the latest version for a long time.
But i suck and thus i have failed.
