    What are you listening to?

    How do you launch your favorite source port?

    The same way I launch most other things: the command line. I'm far too used to doing most things this way. I usually do something like... doomretro -iwad ~/doc/doom/iwads/Doom.wad -file eternity.wad k8vavoom -iwad ~/doc/doom/iwads/Heretic.wad wmc04.pk3 +map e1m1 +skill 3 gzdoom -iwad ~/doc/doom/iwads/Doom2.wad -file uof.pk3 crdoom --iwad ~/doc/doom/iwads/Doom.wad --warp e4m1 doomsday -game doom1-ultimate Obviously I keep IWADs in a certain place :-P Related, I wish more ports had a --help argument.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    Update to my previous post.

    what are you working on? I wanna see your wads.

    This only has a few hours of work on it, so there's only one halfway detailed room since I'm still blocking out stuff. So it's sorta boring right now ^_^; Freaky Panties 6 〜俺の小悪魔がこんなに可愛いわけがない〜

    Favorite DOOM Music Track

    That's a tough one, because there's quite a few I like. E3M3 is always a banger, so is E2M1 and E2M2. MAP02 has been a favorite for a long time, and so has MAP06 and MAP20. But I think at the end of the day, E1M8 Sign of Evil is my favorite. The song just reeks of "Doom", with both the horror aspect and the metal aspect. I'm also usually a sucker for epic choirs like that, and those synth drums are just icing on the cake. These are all reasons I made my own cover version for one of my maps, which you can hear below. Aside from that, I think E1M5 might be my second favorite.

    What type of dog do you own?

    I have four cats, one of which is a cog (cat that thinks that it's a dog). She's a medium hair all-black one that follows me around and waves her tail around like mad whenever she's excited (we think she grew up around dogs).

    Most Excruciating Gaming Accomplishments?

    Probably a 1CC in Boost Mode in Crimson Clover.

    Favorite Video Game Composers

    Oh man, I forgot about him! I absolutely loved his soundtrack for X-Men 2 on the Genesis. It sounded almost like darker Information Society music. Which makes sense given that he helped found that group.

  10. Yay, midi123 v2.1.0 is done! As I mentioned before, this version adds support for multiple filter types, multiple reverb types, multiple interpolation modes for the chorus effect, a parametric EQ (now with an arbitrary number of bands), NRPN support, rendering to Au files, and a VU meter display.  In the end I decided against including SysEx in v2.1.0 because I need to do some more thinking regarding some non-technical things with it.  But the rest is all there.


    There's also a new command line parameter, --plot-eq, that will print out a GnuPlot script to plot the parametric EQ.  This might help you visualize the filter curve if you want to configure the EQ.  The EQ can be enabled/disabled during playback with the "e" key.


    Supported filters for MIDI channels (controllers 71/74) and the voices (SoundFont instruments):

    • Standard 2-pole biquad lowpass
    • CEM3394-like 4-pole lowpass
    • SSM2040-like 4-pole lowpass
    • EDP Wasp-like 2-pole lowpass
    • Korg MS-20-like 4-pole lowpass

    Source code, Linux AppImages for x86-64, and full release notes available here: https://chiselapp.com/user/MistressRemilia/repository/midi123/technote/814a0aacfd59ac972af6b2353cffc7129812937f

    This is built using Haematite v0.3.1, my SoundFont synthesizer that's written in pure Crystal and based on MeltySynth; and RemiAudio v0.1.0, my general purpose audio library that's also written in pure Crystal.


    Oh, and you can make it look gay with an environment variable.  The default is just the normal text color.  Have fun finding the values :D

      Congrats on wrapping a nice little bow on your project, Rem. :^)

      Thank ya ^_^

      I swear I will use Haematite in a game engine someday.  But for now, I'm having way too much fun with this command line player.  I haven't had this much fun listening to midis in ages.

    Why Are FPS Games So Unpopular In Japan?

    Yeah, Remilia Scarlet is a Touhou character. And my online (and sometimes irl) name. My avatar is from some art by someone named Vile.

    Thoughts on the Fallout Games?

    I've always been very bored by them. They're just not my cup of tea. I did like the Fallout 4 character creation system, though.
  14. Oh boy, midi123 (my command line MIDI player) and Haematite (my port of MeltySynth, a SoundFont synthesizer library) are getting a bunch of new features.

    • Built-in 5-band equalizer in midi123.  Band 1 is a low shelf, band 5 is a high shelf, and the others are normal peaking bands.  The EQ is fully configurable from the config.  It can be enabled/disabled in the config, on the command line, and while midi123 is playing by pressing the 'e' key.
    • Multiple reverb models are back in both Haematite and midi123.  Choices, from highest quality to lowest:
      • ZitaReverb, a port of Zita-Rev1, a high quality hall reverb
      • ZitaReverbSimple, simplified very slightly for performance; almost identical in sound to normal ZitaReverb
      • Schroeder, aka Freeverb
    • Selectable lowpass filters for the voices in both Haematite and midi123.  The SoundFont specs state that the filter should be a 12db (2-pole) filter, and then leaves the implementation up to the software author.  Haematite and midi123 bend this rule a little bit.  Both default to a 2-pole filter, but also support three additional filters: a 4-pole one based on that found in a CEM3394, a 4-pole one based on the SSM2040, and a 2-pole one that approximates the filter found in an EDP Wasp.  midi123 lets you select these from the command line, or from the config.
    • SysEx support (not yet committed to the repo) in Haematite.  This lets you control the reverb type and state, the filter type, and the chorus state.
    • NRPN support added to Haematite.  Right now it does nothing (well, in the code in the repo, these currently control the reverb/chorus state), but this will let me add more control over the synthesis parameters in the future.
    • Selectable interpolation modes for the chorus effect in both Haematite and midi123.
    • Rendering to Au is now supported in midi123 (I think I'm the only one who cares about .au files lol)
    • VU meter as an alternative to the progress bar when playing in midi123.


    I still have some additional features planned, and some more work to do, in both for the next release, but I was too excited not to share.

    How much detail do you put into your architecture?

    Oh that's just the port, k8vavoom.
