DefleMask and WINE
« on: May 18, 2011, 12:46:19 PM »
DefleMask work out of the box in WINE! :D

This means that all the OS X / *NIX users can enjoy DefleMask :)

At some time I will create an entry in the WINE AppDB ( http://appdb.winehq.org/ )

I haven't tested it very deeply, but at a first glance it seems very good, playback is very painless :P

[fd@fd ~]$ wine --version
wine-1.3.20

This is great news!. :D
Seems to be a good way for OSX guys to wait for Mac build.

I'm running it on Xubuntu 10.10 under WINE. It works rather well! That's good because I hate having to boot into Windows. :)

Very good to know. Now I can do some tracking on the go, when I'm away from my desktop.

I'm having trouble with running it on WINE. I'm running 64 bit Debian (or more precisely, Linux Mint Debian Edition). The graphics spaz out. Most of the foreground objects and text flicker. I also can't get it to make sounds with the first chip, the yamaha whatever phone thing. The genny and the SMS work fine.

I did try it out on 64 bit Windows 7 on the same computer. It runs as expected. One bug I can point out is that in the instrument editor, the fourth operator on any FM instrument clips beyond the bottom of the screen and I can't find a scroll bar. Also, it wouldn't load any VGMs or export to WAVs.

Oh, BTW, I probably should have mentioned I'm using 3.8, the latest as of now.

I'm looking forward to the Linux build. Although releasing the source might speed it up, lol.

EDIT: I found that reducing the max framerate to 10 stops the flickering in WINE.

Strange... The next release (3.9) will have some Windows dependencies removed, maybe this will solve some problems on WINE.

About the YAMAHA Mobile soundchip: remember that this soundchip is not capable to switch instruments on the fly, so you have to set the instruments on the very first row in order to make any sound. On the next version, if you modify a ins value, it will be writen on the first column.

About the fourth operator and a scroll bar: There is no scrollbar on the instrument editor, my bad, added to TODO list. You have to use the mouse wheel.

Welcome to the forums btw!. :D

Thanks. You have an excellent response time

I loaded a YM Mobile song in both formats and each time it didn't make any noise. Switching to the Genesis or the PSG both made the appropriate noises when I load music for them.

Also, this tracker is exactly what I've been looking for for years. Specifically the Genesis part. I was considering delving into making my own tracker, but I didn't really have the experience in chip emulation. Previously, I've use the quite dated TFM Maker which had only a subset of the FM portion of the Genesis. It doesn't make any noise under WINE. Your tracker is shaping up quite nicely.

Thanks a lot!. :D

About the Mobile FM Chip: Then that problem is because of the emulator, it has some problems under Windows 7 with some audiocards too, and because it is not open-source, unfortunately I cannot solve that issue. :(

However, the 3.9 version will run better on WINE. :D

The mobile emulator worked fine on my install of Windows 7, just not WINE.

Anyways, I'm looking forward to the next update. :)

3.9  has the same bugs as 3.8 . I am excited about using the DAC part of the Genny, though.

EDIT: I was trying to experiment with WINE settings, then I realized I was running an older version of WINE due to having to install it manually. I reinstalled it to the latest version and I now enjoy the mobile chip on linux.
