DMP v4 (see section 3.4) runs correctly under OS/2. I use DMP32.EXE,though DMP will run too, just not as well. The catch is that you can't run DMP32.EXE from an icon directly, for some reason OS/2 doesn't recognize it as a valid executable, so I created a dummy batch file DMP32S.BAT that I put in an icon that just shells and runs DMP32. In fact, DMP32 runs better under OS/2 in a VDM than the native Presentation-Manager DMPlayer and supports a heck of a lot more formats.And finally Snowman (Christopher G. Mann) <email@example.com> wrote in March 1998:
"I use it under FreeBSD all the time too so you might want to mention that. :)"Ftp to hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/os2/apps/mmedia/music/mod for more info on these OS/2 proggies. This is their index at the time of writing...
util/ DIR 1998/01/30 MODfile utilities players/ DIR 1998/01/30 Programs for playing modules trackers/ DIR 1998/01/30 Programs for editing modules convert/ DIR 1998/01/30 Programs to convert between music formats
Well, what was that index is now, or so it appears, no more.
Once again finding almost anything music related in OS2 is a very disheartening task, MikMOD being almost the only real contender. (See next section for more..). While trying to gain information, I visited several highly touted OS2 sites (all of which were at least 6 months or more likely, 2 years out of date). I'm sure there is more OS2 stuff than this, but I don't use that OS - you guys do! Maybe you'd like to tell me?.
Carsten Stiller also found out these two new facts:
The newest DMPlay available is v1.41 and can be found at ftp://hobbes.nmsc.edu/pub/os2/apps/mmedia/sound/players/dmply141.zip
