lovely tunes from the sublime hively tracker musicians, packaged in that cute interactive interface, fun read, great listen, thanks!

wheeeee! i would suggest that a windows mode on the linux port would be nice, but that would just be negative!

Hit 'f' or return to toggle between fullscreen and windowed mode on the Linux port. Use the -w command line switch to start in windowed mode.

Lovely interface, Xeron, and cheers for HivelyTracker!

great disk with some very nice tunes and a nice interface, but that windows replayer soundbug still exists... =(
rulez added on the 2008-03-10 07:43:30 by starbuck starbuck
OK, i've updated the OS4 and Win32 versions with the code to toggle fullscreen when you press 'F' or ENTER. The source archive is also updated.

For some reason toggling doesn't work on windows here, but you can still specify "-w" on the commandline to start it in windowed mode.
added on the 2008-03-10 08:40:48 by xeron xeron

What windows replayer bug? All tunes playback perfectly here and nobody else reported a problem during testing? I'm guessing you may have driver issues.

Great musicdisk! Nice tunes and a hilarious interface! And nice hidden feature. ;)

Too bad about the missing/too slow 68k replayer. Would have been nice to have it on 68k as well.
rulez added on the 2008-03-10 10:14:12 by Blueberry Blueberry
Well, if a fast 68k replayer ever showed up, i might code an AGA version with the same design (although it would be a rewrite rather than a port).

it is fun and tunes are great but if it was windowed would be better tho ~

Bonus Track +++
3 days interrupted by floaty point exception; reported.
Also: holy CRAP the Virgill track was Hively? I mean, I knew Syphus was doing incredible stuff with it but I mean ... I mean... I mean... Well doesn't that mean there's an osX replay now cuz of the other musicdisk it was on?
Sweet. (Crashed first when the sun came up but ran ok the second time.)

Yeah, seems the windows build isn't 100% stable, although i never had any crashes here. :-(

If i ever figure out why i'll fix it and reupload.
added on the 2008-03-10 23:03:19 by xeron xeron
the replayer is open source, it's ported to many platforms, and players exist for many platforms as well. on osx you can use audio overload to play hively tracker tunes.

I had a weird crash first time, but I put it down to the fact that I had about 30 things running on 3 monitors, and parapete had just IM'd me about something completely fucking useless and inconsequential while it was fullscreened. Oh, and because I was running it from out of the zip! I win at beta testing!!11

HPPA-Linux (untested) and PS3 binaries are up.

I couldn't reproduce the crashes that some people have been experiencing with the Windows (and a couple of other) ports, but luckily Ransom/IRIS found and fixed some bugs while porting to PS3 Linux, so there is now a new Win32 build up (and updated source archive).

If anyone was having crash problems with the windows build, please re-download. All other ports will be rebuilt and re-uploaded in the coming days (so watch the file date of your preferred port if you are currently experiencing problems :-).

Apologies for this; I simply hadn't seen a crash before release here (and still havent, except on Dr. Dooms laptop and then only once).

Btw,. in the new GP2X port, the mouse is in the upper left corner and I cannot move it with the joypad, I cannot use the interface at all to select music or do other things. Was this is only for the new GP2X - F200 with the touchpad?

The Nintendo DS SDL doesn't support 16 bit surfaces.

I tried doing a native port, but it seems i couldn't set up a double-buffered 16bit framebuffer, and it was very slow anyway.

It IS possible to do a decent DS version by replacing the rendering routines with ones that use the 3D hardware (although the stuff that draws the lines around the edges would have to be done totally differently).

Basically, it might or might not happen. I'm seriously considering a DS version of hivelytracker, though.

What about the VRAM display mode? It only works on one screen (unless you do screenswapping, but you don't need to render to both screens do you?) but you get four 256x192 px 15-bit buffers to play with.

Or you can just use a standard BG mode with 15-bit direct color BG layers that can be rotoscaled and just flip between which layer is displayed between frames.

For more info:

and I'm sure libnds includes some examples of this.

Xeron, I have tested the (Free)MiNT port for Atari, thanks for trying it :-) It works a bit, but not fully.

The screen changes resolution, goes black - but stays black too. The synth starts playing, although a bit lagged, as if the CPU is too slow (66MHz 060). Exit with ESC works a treat, no crash or so.

Perhaps lowering the mixing frequency for the port would do the trick ? 32780 Hz is a native Falcon frequency.

I was trying to compile the GP32 port. I had some problems and maybe I need to know with which SDL libs was it compile because the precompiled SDL libs I have might be wrong or maybe I need to use an older DevkitArm (I have the DevkitPro with DevkitARM that has some eabi binary files). Who is the person who did the port btw? Maybe I could contact him and ask some things.
added on the 2008-04-07 19:34:00 by Optimus Optimus
It should only need the main SDL library since it basically gets a framebuffer and writes directly into it.

Our porting machine is Blacky Stardust, AKA Marco Van Den Heuvel, who maintains lots of the VICE ports. I don't have his email to hand at the moment (i'm not at home).
added on the 2008-04-07 21:04:55 by xeron xeron
Ok, porting machine speaking ;)

I am the maintainer of all vice ports except win32 and osx, so I am used to porting things.

You would assume that anything made using SDL would work on all platforms that SDL is available for. Sadly enough for most of the handheld/console platforms this seems not to be the case.

I oinly have experience porting to computer based platforms, all of the console and handheld ports are new areas to me. I usually don't have the actual device to test it on, so any help with the handheld and console based ports is appreciated.
I suspected too things in the GP32 code.
First of all something happens and it stucks forever somewhere inside the big SDL_WaitEvent( &event ); do{ in main and doesn't reach the render() thing.

Also, when I commented the big thing and just left the render, I needed to press once a key so that the render starts because it said:

needrender = 1;

Why does it have to wait for a userevent (any key press?) for the renderer to start? I am not sure about that..

..but maybe that's not the most important problem. After the first frame was rendered (some yellow stars) it freezed there.

I suspected something else. In GP32 if you use malloc from stdlib your programm crashes. Somehow GP32 has problems with stdlib and needs that you #include <gpstdlib.h> and use gp_mem_func.malloc instead. This is how it works in led blur and everything I have done in my GP32 releases. So the next thing was to try to change the mallocs and see if it continues after the first render without freezing. Of course I had to include the gp libs in the makefile (-lgpstdlib, I don't remember if it needs the rest) and the gamepark_sdk include and lib files from the internet.

That's where I couldn't verify if this worked because the devkitarm refused to compile. It says the message "libgpstdlib.a uses hardware FP while hively.elf uses software FP". Usually when this happens and I found in forum discussions in the past, it's because the libs are compiled with hardware FP (with or without the -msoft-float flag) and I have to find some versions that are compile with software FP or compile them myself :P. But it's strange because the gpstdlib compiles in the led blur project but not here? I also removed the msoft-float from the hively makefile and it gives me the same error. I wil try later :P
added on the 2008-04-08 07:20:48 by Optimus Optimus
The reason it waits for SDL_USEREVENT, is because the SDL_USEREVENT is generated by a timer and means that render() is not called more than is necessary.

At least i'm not claiming they do work.

Basically, Marco sends me ports, i stick them up, i tell you guys.
added on the 2008-04-10 15:48:55 by xeron xeron

I was asked to make as many ports as possible of the production. If they had asked only for ports that I could test myself then there would only be about 40 or 50 ports. Some ports I could have tested (arm, mips(el), ppc, amd64, sparc(64), ia64), but have not bothered to do so cause setting up the OS would take alot of time that I don't want to spend on it right now.

I have dealt enough with *nix platforms to know that if it works and is confirmed and tested to work on 5 out of 8 supported cpus for the *nix OS then it will also work on the other 3 cpus.

If you assume that all ports of SDL should be able to handle the same code then it should work on all SDL supported platforms.

For the consoles and handheld platforms SDL might not be fully supported, or the platform is not posix-compliant enough to run the code, and needs code-changes.

When SDL is not fully supported on console and handheld platforms there usually is no documentation about what is or is not working for that platform.

So I admit that for console and handheld platforms that are not based on *nix the port might or might not work, and if it doesn't then some-1 who is more familiar with that platform can step up and make changes where needed and provide the changed source code.

For the *nix based platforms the ports will run as expected.

So to cut a long story short, (too late now, I know ;) ), please test the untested platforms and report if they work, if they don't work and it is a console or handheld platform (which will always be the problem cases) and you are a coder for that platform, please take a look at the source and help out to make the production run correctly on that platform.

All help and feedback is appreciated.

added on the 2008-04-10 15:56:57 by skrebbel skrebbel
blacky: if the functionality of a port cannot be confirmed 100%, i would personally prefer to wait with announcing it until the first positive testreports have dropped in. i admit that there's a risk that waiting for testreports will lead to a catch-22 situation in the sense that if you don't announce the port, nobody will test it, and thus no testreports will be received.

so ehm... well... please don't take this as hard criticism, but rather as a friendly request to keep us up-to-date about the compatibility test-status of this prod :)

skrebbel: kan ook nog belg of zuidafrikaan zijn, maar die zijn ook van harte welkom :)

WinCE ports don't work on ARM WM2003SE or on ARM WM5. Just blanks the screen then returns to gui, but most of it is gone so the device needs a soft reset. WM2003 specific version tested on ARM WM2003SE doesn't even start. Says it's not a valid application.

Well, here's some sort of quick and dirty PSP version for you and the source too. Maybe the other dude will make his version faster etc. but use this while waiting :)

That "other dude" would be me. ;) And I didn't want to release "just another port" :) Thus my version contains quite a bit of additional psp specific code for better handling, speed etc. Thanks for releasing your port though, now I can fix the last remaining SDL bug in my version in peace and without stress. :)
added on the 2008-07-26 23:08:18 by StingRay StingRay
I'm glad to hear you want to make it perfect for the platform. My version is more or less a bulk recompile to get the gadget properly supported since it's on the list already :P (and I wanted to do some ports now that I finally have a PSP myself too)
added on the 2008-07-26 23:45:00 by Marq Marq
Marq, thank you, it's nice to have it on PSP, maybe it's a bit slow, but wtf, it works, and sounds nice ;)

So thumb up from me! ;)

Oh, and Marq, in your version clicking arrows in text boxes doesn't work, plus it would be nice to control cursor with digital pad! :D
rulez added on the 2008-07-27 01:52:59 by Tomoya Tomoya
An easy "optimization" would have been clocking to 333 MHz but I chose not to do it because you probably spend quite a lot of time with the music disc and that would eat up the battery faster. Hopefully Stingray's version turns out better :)
added on the 2008-07-27 02:00:46 by Marq Marq
Oh well, behind the same link 333 MHz version with d-pad and scrolling support...
added on the 2008-07-27 02:25:55 by Marq Marq
Marq, I don't think it works faster, but d-pad and arrows are now ok, thanks! ;)

Maybe it's bad that quitting by hitting the Home button hangs the console, but whatever ;)

You sure are a difficult customer. Now behind the same link: faster rendering, tear-free page flipping and exit through Home button works. What else ?)

btw i must add that i am happy you made a BEOS port. i happen to know the only remaining BEOS user (an ex-atari-scener, so he's well versed in mindless zealotism), and he's mightily chuffed with a port for his private platform ;)
added on the 2008-08-19 13:23:14 by havoc havoc
heh. BeOS isn't even the most obscure platform to get a port ;-)

how tall is the person using that platform? to beat BEOS, it must be a midget ;)
added on the 2008-08-19 13:46:47 by havoc havoc
Dunno. But i'd consider SkyOS, and Syllable more obscure than BeOS.

I've also never heard of unixware or openserver, but i don't know if they're obscure.
added on the 2008-08-19 13:49:36 by xeron xeron

Well, the only reason the obscure platforms have a port is because they have SDL, therefore, SMSQ/E port request DENIED. Feel free to do it yourself, though.

added on the 2008-08-19 15:14:07 by havoc havoc
thumb up for having more ports than a realdoll!
rulez added on the 2008-08-19 15:20:07 by post malone post malone
Well, DS port is probably out of the window because i really can't be bothered.

The AGA remake is somewhat different in that i am an Amiga scener, and therefore likely to be motivated to do it. If StingRay (or someone else) ever did deliver an optimised 68k replayer, i'd be very keen to do the remake.

I have never heard of SMSQ/E, and have no interest in it. If there was a simple cross-dev GCC install for windows that included SDL for it where i could more or less type "make" and get an exe out the other end, you'd have an (untested) SMSQ/E executable in no time at all :)
added on the 2008-08-19 15:29:38 by xeron xeron
Again: If you really care, the source is there!
added on the 2008-08-19 15:30:03 by xeron xeron
SMSQ/E is a further development of the Sinclair QL OS, therefore it should be obvious that anyone who suggests it is either joking, or in grave need of psychological treatment.

the fact that the AGA port might still happen is much more relevant imho.. a SDL atari port would be of the same level of obscurity as BEOS and the likes, so porting a to-be AGA version is the only useful option i guess.
added on the 2008-08-19 15:52:20 by havoc havoc
I knew you were joking, but since i don't know HOW developed from QL it is (for all i know it might have had 16bit gfx and SDL), the suggestion could well have ended up with a port being done.

And yes, we have toyed with the idea of doing an OS3.x SDL port, but it never went anywhere. The resulting exe would probably only run properly on Amithlon or WinUAE anyway. Marco did the FreeMiNT port presumably because it has SDL, and a working crosscompiler, and when he typed make, an exe came out the other end. TBH, i didn't even realise it was a 68k exe; i presumed it was for Aranym or something (does Aranym only run 68k code? i thought it was something more like AROS..)
added on the 2008-08-19 15:57:18 by xeron xeron

as soon as someone ports our opensource releases to any random other platform

Gimme links. Maybe it'll happen :)
added on the 2008-08-19 16:04:42 by xeron xeron
i guess the problem with SMSQ/E is that it never really had a native platform. even the q40/q60 boxes (the only ones ever built with SMSQ/E in mind) came with a linux68k package in the box. if simply booting the other OS lets you run all the software you need, you can waste all your time on porting your own OS to a new generation of hardware. and that's exactly what the SMSQ/E ppl have been doing for about 22 years now, afaik ;)

aranym does indeed emulate 68k, and also dsp. afaik the intention of the project was to stick with that structure from the start, but i've got to admit i'm not a big expert since i stopped following the project a few years ago. imho the only "honourable way" is to somehow port this prod to real hardware, which means an equal amount of headache for both AGA and Falcon, probably :/

as for our opensource releases: i wish you the best of luck ;) and keep my fingers crossed that you like 68k :)
added on the 2008-08-19 16:56:33 by havoc havoc
Well, I'm not unfamiliar with 68k assembler, but i won't promise anything either :)
added on the 2008-08-19 17:45:31 by xeron xeron
BTW, if anyone decides not to port those to not duplicate effort, just go ahead. Believe me its not all that likely i'll port any of them :)
added on the 2008-08-19 18:58:18 by xeron xeron
xeron: no hard feelings- i'll excuse you for not porting if you produce a couple more demos (platform irrelevant) like that :)

rulez added on the 2008-09-01 10:30:03 by blz blz
OK, there is a 68k Amiga port up now. Note, though, that this is not the planned AGA rewrite, but rather a straight SDL port. As such it requires AHI, a graphics card, and is far too slow on real hardware (even with a 68060).

Already tested it as you know :-)

A few further notes to add. It is the SDL source and not anything machine specific or specially written. An 060 class Atari Falcon is essential, otherwise it is pointless even trying it. The faster the machine, the better. The run speed can be described as 'sedate' but adequate. The music plays back just fine :-)
