MOD files loading


I've tried a few mod files, some from the original MK Soundtracker and they are not recognized as modules.
What modtracker is exporting the mod format recognized by the loader?
I remember on the Amiga, the loaders were very forgiving and would not really perform any checks; the various soundtrackers performed very basic checks to tell a format apart from another, but this was very limited. This may have permitted non standard files to grow and spread as they just worked back then.
I attached sleepwalk, it is one of the very first modules ever made. It loads properly in VLC but not in SharpMod (not recognized as a module).

Ok, It seems that your module is an original "Ultimate Soundtracker" module. The Loader tha can perform it is the M15 Loader, which is not currently implemented by SharpMod. I have some loaders to add and the M15 is in the short list :)

Wait & see for the next release

So you can convert it with modplug Tracker.

Right, the M15 Loader is added to the SVN repository. I've tried your module and it seems to work fine.
