Comment: Here's a short diddle for you. Nobody makes modules anymore perhaps with the exception of TSSF, and it is a bit disheartening that a new generation of gamers doesn't understand nor enjoy how easy it is to write with this format. There's something about simplistic, well thought-out melodies that sucks me in.. I had to get it out of my head. A fantastic game with absolutely fantastic music, and it is what made me fall in love with FM synthesis, although this remake is not OPL2, it's just simple sine waves and such. It is by no means a masterpiece or a work of art, but the melody is effective and simple - and I hope, addicting. And only in 15.2KB! XMPlay is one of the best players for module formats, but Winamp will work as will Foobar with the proper plugins.
Anyway, I'm not wanting to make a big deal out of it on the column or anything (no need to even put it up, really, it isn't important), but maybe this will spark some interest in module writing. It's a dying format. What a pity - it is an amazing amount of fun to compose in, and simple. I'll have to cook up a "real" remix of one of these songs one of these days when I've got the time.
