I love HivelyTracker, but I won't be able to use Windows for much longer.

As I don't exactly have an Amiga 1200 lying around, I'm not quite as good at demanding as Virgil, but it only makes sense after the Windows and OS X ports.

Well... it is opensource... :)

Also, it may possibly work under WINE.

Haha, somehow I completely missed the source download! I'd been having trouble getting it to run under WINE at first, but it seems to be working now, so I'm satisfied. :)

Just expressing interest in this in case an ambitious soul would like to do it. I don't have the expertise to do a Linux port for HT, but if anybody happens along looking for a program to port to linux, feel free to say "Yes! HivelyTracker would be a great project", as there would be at least one appreciative person :)

I did start a Linux port, btw, but I encountered two problems:

* I used some kind of Linux standard file requester, but the window didn't close after you selected your mod, it would just hang around unresponsively after control returned to the app!

* SDL on Linux doesn't seem to like the small non-power-of-2 audio buffer size that is kind-of required for realtime module edit/pattern display (at least without significant refactoring of the code that I wasn't prepared to do).

On the plus side, 99.9% of it "just works" when compiled for Linux, so it shouldn't be a tough job for someone who knows what they are doing.

AHX forever!

Well, I fixed those two bugs. Just a keyboard issue to fix now...

Just committed another update.

Alt Gr. wasn't working because (on my ubuntu install at least...) it doesn't generate an SDLK_RALT event, but uses a different code, so now we allow that code too.

I added an option to the SDL wrapper to make RCTRL act like RAmiga (play pos) instead of like CTRL, since my linux laptop doesn't have a right windows or menu key. This option is enabled by editing ht.prefs. It is disabled in the windows build because SDL on windows sends phantom RCTRL events when you press Alt Gr (!!!).

AHX forever!

I still check these forums :) Been too busy to do much with hively, though.
