One other thing I noticed is MilkyTracker seems very slow on my Vampire 500 V2+ A500 (NTSC OCS) core 2.5 (Apollo OS 43p) .. and in many cases once I start playing a song the UI is unresponsive and I have to reboot the amiga to stop it. I've seen some videos of other people using it and the logo screen stays much shorter on theirs then it does for me.. Is this a bug?

Are you using the latest version?, there was a post with an update link in the middle of last page.

also, some of the videos are people running Gold 2.7 which is faster when it comes to floating point calculation. But the last update I did made it fast enough to be usable on Gold 2.5.

  Fair enough.. I'll give it a shot with the fresh download I just did and see..

EDIT: (update) .. Ok tried the version linked in the previous page, and indeed it does work better (start up is still like 1/2 speed of what I see in some videos) .. UI is working .. however if I turn on scopes, or change the resolution beyond 640x480 it becomes unresponsive .. or stuck.. but I can live with this for now..

@Eric
 
Thanks for the updated report. I think we need to be patient. Gold 2.7 will help. Some other optimizations to the code will help more as well (such as reducing the number of times the audio is mixed/resampled, taking advantage of AMMX2, etc..).

Even in its current state MilkyTracker is looking awesome.
 
One step at a time. :)

That's why I'm shipping it with a preconfigured configuration file.

For Gold2.5 machines:
* Interpolation needs to be off
* Scopes needs to be off
* Resolution should be 640x480 for it to be usable
* Fullscreen is recommended for best performance
* If lag is experienced while playing, turn up the buffer.

As stated in thread title, this is a BETA, and currently under development, which is why it's not hosted on Aminet yet.

However, there's only so much I can do to reduce the lag on Gold2.5 or overclocked 060 cpu's. Don't expect miracles. :P

AMMX2 comes with Gold2.7, so yeah, still have to wait for those improvements.

Sure no problem.. just reporting what I found.. (seems they are known issues with 2.5 / current beta) .. as I said, sticking with your premade config file it works fine.. so I will just stick with that for now .. Thanks for the response/confirmation..

Thread cleaned up: Off topic discussion removed.

I think this AMIGA Milkytracker port is real great stuff,
please show the porter a little respect and don't go off topic.
