Looking at the DefleMask forums it looks like they do a poll when they're looking to add support for new systems. We should keep our eyes out for that.

Otherwise, all they other options sound great too. It would be awesome to have multiple options available to choose from.

I've been learning more about the VB's sound capabilities, as well as making samples that would be possible on the VB, and then using them in a sample-based tracker similar to MilkyTracker. So it's more or less like what you're talking about, DogP.

But there is a limit to this, and that is: you'll just be making music that *sounds* (almost) exactly like what you can get on the VB. You won't be able to actually get it on the VB unless you went through the effort of coding a player for every intricacy a complex sample-based tracker provides. Something like Deflemask or Famitracker would definitely be closer to what I'd say everyone wants, because it provides everything you need to both make the music and get it exported into something you can put into your homebrew.

And the video L__E__T posted is exactly that... It'd be VERY exciting if something like that were freely available. :)

MK opened a crowdfunding campaign for his tracker, its respective sound player code, and a brand new VB homebrew game entry. All after more than a year since the "debut" video was uploaded.

I am wondering if anybody has heard from M.K. lately and would be able to let us know if he is okay. I've tried e-mailing him at an address that he used to use, but I haven't gotten any reply. It is the only private contact method that I've ever had for him.

As one of the higher contributors toward his VB Music Tracker and Bombenleger game, I don't even care if he is not able to follow through with that project for some reason. Since he contributed so much to the Virtual Boy community free of charge, I would simply consider my support for that to go towards all of the other wonderful things that he did for us over the years.

I hope it is possible that we can find out that he is okay, so that we don't have to keep worrying needlessly. If something tragic did, in fact, happen to him, and we might never find out what, then that would be really heart-breaking.

it seems he's alright! and the tracker's in a final state:

there are screens of the tracker in this thread too. no word about Bombenleger just yet, but I'm to assume that's probably of similar state..? hopefully more details on the both of these will be revealed soon, I'm anxious to see them in action (and with luck, maybe play with em too) !

I got an e-mail from him 14/2 with an apology of the delayed release after sending him an e-mail. A downloadlink was included in the mail for the tracker.

So it seems like he is ok now atleast.
