GoatTracker 2 Fork - interested?

I fiddled around with the GT2 sources lately - just for my personal interest. It's just visual stuff for "shits and giggles" ...
Currently I'm asking myself (or asking *you* here) if someone else may find this useful.
Checkout http://gt2fork.jansalleine.com/ and tell me what you think about it.
For now I just provided an experimental win32 download, but of course I will share the sources and do some more work on it if anyone bothers ;-)

When I mailed my zeroes to dots idea to Cadaver he said, he liked it, but feels GT development pretty much to be "finished". So I don't know if he'll work on GT anymore.

The current version runs - at least for me - on linux and windows - don't know anything about OSX or whatever this apple system is called yet :-)

Have fun!

The player is really horrible / unmaintainable with all the ifdefs for feature optimization, so very big thumbs up if you delve into it at all :) The embedded assembler from Exomizer with its slightly esoteric format is a further difficulty modifier.

Nice, if a little "Borland"-like.

How about a CheeseCutter color scheme to confuse the composer? ^^

I'd really like to listen to "Jesus & Tits" now, where can I find the tune? :)

Very nice that someone gives this the ol' goat an expander :P
I'd love to follow this and see where it turns!

This is a great initiative spider. As for my wish list it's rather short (but obviously huge in order of implementation effort), Ctrl-Z.

Okay: first step is to make a clean (and complete) version with dots intead of zeroes & color scheme customization.

I also like comfort features as CTRL-Z. Don't know how much work this would be yet. So no promises. I personally would like a "Ninjatracker mode" - which doesn't allow input that would result in the tune not being able to be converted. So when I'm done with the display part I'll definately take a look at the editor code and see what I can do.

But I most likely won't touch the player code. When even Groepaz gave up on that this will be way beyond my abilities I guess.

Agree with this. When I made the one tune I've made in it so far, I was missing undo like crazy.

On modern machines you probably can quite easily afford to dump the entire song to a data structure for each undo step.
