    There's a nice summary by the 'X-Systems' author:

    Thanks Andreas, that was a nice refresher.

    I've been in a business trip and away from my computer, so I haven't tried anything. But I did install the latest available versions of the player plugs in ANR, but the mod stil didn't play.

    Have you activated the ANR players in the ANR prefs? You may additionally give them a priority higher than that of all other installed and activated ANR players and see if that helps.

    I downloaded the mod.somewhere in time, downloaded ppunpack, unpacked the mod file and it plays just fine with both ANR (Modplug replayer) and UADE right away. Are you *really* sure you're trying to play the unpacked file instead of the powerpacked one, as if none of the players can't play ithe module it suggests this.

    I extracted to mods last Sunday. The first one (Assassin) plays fine in ANR, but that is not the case with Somewhere_In_Time. I can only give it another try this Thursday, my local time, when I come back from this business trip.

    I don't think he tried to play it in UADE as the last thing he wrote about UADE in this thread was that both UADE versions he installed lacked the executable file (while his screenshots prove the opposite).

    "Loads and decompresses XPK, FImp, PowerPacker, LhA, LZX and Zip files" reads more like it doesn't use XPK to decrunch PowerPacker files but either has the PowerPacker decruncher inbuilt or uses another library for this.

    Edit: I just had a look into HiP.guide and it seems I'm right: HippoPlayer needs powerpacker.library or the XFD libs installed in order to decrunch PowerPacker files.

    How did you manage to play mods with HippoPlayer on MorphOS? I've been always getting "Couldn't allocate CIA timer(s)!" error.

    This is some step forward. With the aforementioned settings, HippoPlayer played Spacedeliria and some other modules. However, the quality of sound is quite poor, and the system becomes completely unresponsive while playing.

    Hey, I didn't want to start a completely new thread for this so just continuing this one...

    AminetRadio is pretty much the nicest mod replayer for morphos, and nicely expandable for custom/exotic formats too, but it used to crash soooooo much! So I used UADE and ExcitePlayer for exotic formats which is good....

    However, since MOS 3.10 I have found that AminetRadio is not crashing like it used to! This is pretty awesome, not sure of the many under-the-hood changes have helped stabilize this programme but so far all is good, thanks, just reporting my user experience :)

    Hey, who would have thought that! :-) I abandoned AminetRadio for the same reason, but it seems I should revisit it.
