Well it took me a little longer than I had thought but BotB is now ready to handle competitions of multiple file types. I am eagerly curious to find out how all this goes down. If anyone has any problems with the site please <a href=" troubles..">let me know</a>.

<b>Good luck batthing!!</b>

If you are using FamiTracker then your track is 2a03. There were different extra chips in alot of cartridges. Konami had their own (vrc) and Capcom had one too (mmc5). I think you can only program those using an extra .dll with MCK/MLL.

you can do N106 and FDS without any extras with MML... but MMC5 takes a little extra, and both VRC6 and 7 take a lot of extra files.

really, extra channels does NOT make a better chiptune in my opinion-- it's how you use what you've got.

Hi, i think the compo is not much different enough, coz of the technical equipment ie. 4 chan amiga mods and/or 32chan PC mods, much people will vote for mods with much chan. i think!

Anyway...Amiga 4ch. chipz rules !!!
or let me tell it with the words of quazar

"in these days of 1mb,32ch,16bit-tunes,
we have to preserve the memory of the
tiny tunes from which we all came from"

what software do you use to make 4 channel amiga mods?
are you saying PC/DOS mods should be more restricted?

Nintendo = 5 channels
Commodore 64 = 3 channels

I found Amiga tracker Octomed with 8 channels and some <a href="">others with 64 channels</a>....
but I understand Amiga originally had 4 channels

it is too late to change the compo
but the next will have many more different chip types--
adlib soundcard, commodore VIC*20, atari...

I use Exolons startrekker 1.3 on my amiga.

Yes i know the existing of more then 4 chan progs on the amiga like octamed, ftm etc. and of course startrekker, but most mods quality will be very bad on more then 4 chans.
For me as AMIGA Musician is the 4 channel mods the only one format ;-)
Then it is much harder to make a 4 chan tune that sounds good, instead a 32 chan PC mod.
Btw. there is a trick on the C64 to use a 4th. chan ;-)

I dont want more different chip types, better is to straiten the channels to ie. 4.

I think that is very hard to choose the best chip mods when there are so many different conditions like 3,4,5 and 32 or 64 channel mods. Perhaps the next chip compo is in more different "categories" like 3,4,5,32 and 64 channel tunes ?

So I found some <a href="">MOD file header info</a> and think next time around the Amiga will have it's own category...
Amiga 4 channel MOD
which leaves the S3M/XM/IT to another category..

Yes, the conditions are all very different but that is kind of the fun. That is why file sizes are limited. Chip music comes from many different places on many different platforms.

I am making this all up as I go. I still have much to learn and want everyone who participates to have a positive experience. I think many people on this site won't even know how some chip musics are different -- which leaves the voting up to your musicianship.

In a practical sense, I don't see any point on reviving something no one would benefit from other than the fact it's reminding how my cousin is as old as this thread :T

Goddamit I never thought he'd be 12 by now, I'm still thinking he's 8.

Look if you guys really want to talk about necroposting and introduce a rule against it (nobody ever complained since i joined this community....) then please do it, but my question at first about the voting was genuine and many botbers appreciate being confronted with old threads/battles etc on the frontpage. I for one enjoyed reading through the thread :D If anything you should criticise the childish goys who started spamming into this thread after me. But that would require you to actually criticise an admin ;)

i'm one of those who like seeing old threads/battles on the frontpage; it's a part of botb history i (probably) dont know and find interesting, and i'm pretty sure lots of other n00bs will find it interesting as well

FamiTracker didn't have support for expansion chips back then, and IT2NSF wasn't even a thing yet.

StinkerB06 was probably still in the womb when this was happening.
And Xemogasa was like 3 years old.

What the heck. This compo makes us look like babbys!!

I hadn't even started working with mario paint yet, and I'd only barely learned the guitar.

12 years changes a lot of things.
