Maybe you should go to the "Help" menu and click at "Effect table". "Effect Table" contains a list with effects you can use in the tracker.
And by the way: maybe youre not the master of famitracker but you are very talented. I tried to fix the bassline in High Rise and changed it a bit. I think it sounds pretty cool now. Also you should check out the other expansions, like N163. I also attached space.ftm an old Soundtrack i still havent finished. But its a good file to show you, how to use the sliding effect. I also attached my only VCR6 soundtrack, White Winter 2, because its a good example for stuff like arpeggios which are very useful sometimes AND a good example for creating basslines with the sawtooth and one of the VCR6 pulse channels. I hope this stuff helps you. If theres anything else you need help with, just ask. Im on the forum almost every day.

Thanks for your help, it really helped me. The edited Highrise sounds better, when my musics are edited by someone else with a different style than mine, it help me to make some different music and change my style. But I have a problem since 8 months, I can't use "Help topics", "Effect table" and "FAQ", I have the message "Failed to launch Help".

There should be a .chm file in the same folder as the exe. If it's not there, then you probably need to re-download it. If you still have the .zip from the download then you can copy the .chm from that into your current folder.

Also there should be a page on the famitracker wiki that tells you all of the effects and their purposes. And while we're showing off how certain effects can be used, here's an edit of WW2 that shows off the use of effects F (speed) and B (Jump). Start from the first frame for regular speed, start from the second for swing edit.

Hello again! :)
I just wanted to tell you that i kept working on your OST. Again i only worked on High Rise. The Help stuff is for some reason not working in the 0.5 beta. The new reason of High Rise also shows you the sliding effects (Qxx for sliding up and Rxx for sliding own) in the 3rd pulse and the triangle of the last 2 frames.

High Rise is so good! (It has even been amazing before my edit!)
