Scream Tracker 3 seems to run ok in a DOS box under Windows.

Shift + F9 will activate the setup screen

There is good documentation provided in the 'ST3.DOC' file supplied.

ScreamTracker supports many of the ImpulseTracker Effects Commands, but not all. Notably, it does not support volume column effects.
