Yes, you can now use the solid Protracker player developed by Tim Mueller, Ronald Hof and Per Johansson on AmigaOS4.0. Ptplay now runs on 3.x, Morphos and AmigaOS4. Updated package will be available shortly here: http://ptplay.k-n-p.org/. Sources are of course included.

|it's "Timm" not "Tim". :)|
yes, the original ptplay sources by bifat are very clean and I think it wasn't too problematic to compile them under AOS4, or? :)
IMHO a port of TEKlib for OS4 would be more interesting (from OS4 point of view).

|Nicolas, http://www.lehtoranta.net/ptplay_src.lha Feel free to use/port. We intended to release this source code soon but maybe better release it bit early now. Source code is heavily bastardised but it can compute total playtime for tune and supports seeking. This is same library as used in ANR.|

people that want to save their cpu cycles for something else, or want to go beyond the amiga's limitations, and so on.
quick quiz: how do you get atmosphere by uncle tom to play as soundtracker 2.4 and not "Protracker compatible"? I don't know how the song sounded in Double Dragon 2, but I... hate... that... broken... lead.... sample.
mod.memorydust: unknown format
at least dreamdog isn't detected as Ultimate Soundtracker any more.
but uade is great when, for example, you want to listen to His Master's Noise (using the EaglePlayer on Wanted Team's site).

This is great news. Now I can remove the hardware dependand stuff (mostly the joystick routines) in my projects and easily port them to AmigaOS 4.0 and MorphOS. I used The Player 6.1A for compresion of the modules, but keep the original modules. Now the executables will be much bigger, but this doesn't matter much.

It's good to have alternatives. I only meant I am a big fan of UADE... having tongue in cheek-mode on ;)

Has anyone tried a port of MikMod? I used it a few years ago, and it was pretty cool. I used it with Linux, but I think it might be multiplatform.
For those who don't know, MikMod is a shared library that can be used to play all sorts of mod formats, from 4 channel ST all the way to 32 channel S3M.
