Old FTM not loading properly in any known version of FamiTracker.

Postby B00daW » Mon Feb 29, 2016 12:53 am

Doing an audit in Battle of the Bits (http://www.battleofthebits.org) I've noticed an old FTM that seemingly every known version of FamiTracker refuses to load properly. It is attached below.

Upon review in a hex editor it appears that the file is exactly version v0.2.7 and cannot be any other version. jsr, I know you used to let us use betas and secret alphas for our OHCs (OHBs) for testing purposes but it would have had to have been between v0.2.7 and v0.2.8. I don't know of any versions documented between those two. I've attempted to load it into v0.2.7 and up and none of them load it. There appears to be song data, instruments, and DPCM files. It should be a valid file. What seems to be the issue?

Would appreciate any help that anyone could lend. I've also tried parsing its information through many other unofficial FTM loading applications and all of them seem to have problems.

Thank you very much for your consideration. :)

Someone saved this FTM in a text editor that converts all newline characters to CRLF; in other words, all occurrences of 0x0A or 0x0D are replaced with 0x0D 0x0A. There is no real way of recovering the original FTM without some guesswork.
