Just found something interesting:

In the samples open dialog box (everything that uses samples), I can no longer go backwards like I can in the regular file open dialog box. The "..." folder option is missing. Now I can't go back to the main Deflemask directory tree of samples to which the program defaults, and that's no good. Much hair will be lost, as it will be pulled out for sheer frustration by most, causing patch baldness. ;)

You're right my friend. I will fix that ASAP.
Thanks for the report.

Ah, that's the same error I've been running into!
Yeah, until it's fixed, the only real way to solve it is to save and then reload the dmf. At least there's a workaround for now.

Ok guys so I fixed those bugs, among other things.
Please also check the new UI changes and skin news, I think I will go for a more "simplistic" design for the tracker in the future.


Feel free to change colors.ini and textures, I'm looking for new color ideas and a fresh impact here.
YES, the mask is gone.

Well, I think I prefer the old default skin, and I'm glad you kept it as one of the options. I feel like the background is too bright now though, and I think moving the options around wasn't the greatest idea... I don't use the custom stuff and the checkboxes as much, so I feel they would be better off farther away from the pattern matrix than the speed and especially octave settings.

I don't mind the missing mask, though.

Regarding the new UI: I like the idea of a simpler, high contrast skin, and the use of colour to help things stand out (blue for the instrument editor, for example) is very pleasing to the eye.

I also like how you've moved the waveform viewer into the middle, and having the Option/Disk Op./etc. buttons right next to the Pattern Matrix is a good move too. With the song options, I'm not sure about having the "+/-" buttons to the left of the names - I think having the controls next to the numbers was better. Having the current system/song information displayed all together on the far right is another good idea, though.

Also, gonna be "that guy" and say that I miss the mask. :B

I do like the new UI, although I will have to second Heavy Viper's statement regarding the +/- buttons. I do like the new skin as it provides the sort of minimalism that I'm used to in trackers. I also made a new skin for those missing the mask.

Any info regarding my earlier bug report?

The archive is corrupt, Ultrasonic.
Regarding to the differences between emulators, I will do some tests in the actual Hardware; if DefleMask plays just the same as in the NES, this will stay as is.

New .zip archive. I redownloaded the .tar.gz and it worked fine my end.

My report was with the Game Boy, not the NES.  :P

New, not just to Deflemask but to trackers in general.

I do like the beta layout and skin, don't know about efficiency of the check boxes changes etc but, for me,  the interface looks better  due to the more "elegant" feel provided by the minimalist approach. The mask is gone for better, having it on the intro though is still stylish.

Better! Thanks!

As a newbie,  I had a hard time seeing numbers in the dark toned default skin, and the more brighter ones were too bright. This one seems to make everything visible and easy to locate.

Thanks again!

Yeah, agreed. The slight adjustments to the +/- buttons and check-boxes really help. I also like the brighter coloured highlights in the Pattern Matrix.

I updated the pre-release again, the manual was updated with new images and some corrections that DevEd sent to me some days ago.
Also:
3 little kinks I keep running into:
1. I've noticed that when you change the number in the pattern editor, on any platform, the position jumps to the bottom of the pattern.
2. At times I click on a row only for the rest of the pattern below it to be selected, and no matter how many times I try, the same thing happens.
3. Sometimes when I click on the pattern scroll bar, the program stops, and the only way to get past it is by using the mouse wheel to scroll it.
If you could work out these little kinks that would be great! Thanks!
I fixed this ones too, please get the new pre release here.



If there are no more bugs, I'm planning to release officially 10c in the next week.
