    I would really like to have this for my rpg engine if I ever get it done.
    Sorry, I don't know Java, but I'm sure there was a text-to-speech component some where and it use the microsoft engine.

    No problem. I think it is not that bad. Will try to port it when I have some free time.

    Well, I remember when I used to play on Amiga, there only were mod files, then some clever people made some improvements to that format to include at first more channels, then better samples and finally more effects. Actually, the more complete format today is XM. The popular ones that survived until today are MOD, S3M, IT and XM. Basicly all of them are the same kind, tracked songs, each format has a few special features, but all of them has in common samples and track data. It has sense when you write a player to be able to play at least that 4 ones.

    One thing I miss is a good tracker on Windows (yes, I use that to develop).

    To be fair - it would be a godsend to find/make a library that plays those formats with nothing more than the FCL supplied with FPC - Pseudo 100% portability!
    I once tried to change the world. But they wouldn't give me the source code. Damned evil cunning.

    Well the pascal library that ReBo (Benjamin) wrote which plays S3M, MOD (and I think XM) formats for starters is written using purer Pascal, and runs under Win32, Android, and I think Linux 32/64 bit

    cheers,
