This post is pretty old! Opinions and technical information in it are almost certainly oudated. Commands and configurations will probably not work. Consider the age of the content before putting any of it into practice.
I was chilling around last week, and I wanted to listen to some module music (2nd Reality by Future Crew and some songs from Unreal by Epic Games). Since there wasn’t any module player on Mac that could play .umx files, I had to write a little player using libmikmod with the smarts to detect and unpack module music from Unreal packages.
It was a fun learning experience. I’ll probably release it in a week or so. It’s console based, but it also doesn’t suck the whole CPU of my 300mhz G3 Powerbook.
