Oldsk00l replayer

Summary: Oldsk00l MOD player is an input plugin for WinAmp.
Platform: Windows 95 or better
License: Freeware

Oldsk00l replaces the .mod player (.mod only, not .xm and .it) that comes with WinAmp with one that's more compatible with old Amiga MODs. It detects SoundTracker, NoiseTracker, StarTrekker etc and handles them correctly.

It also supports all versions of Future Composer and Brian Postma's SoundMon files for those old crack-intro tunes we all know and love, and there's also support for SoundFX 1.3.

Through a small Amiga emulator it also plays modules with the player embedded, currently Jochen Hippel, Maniacs of Noise, Delta Music 2.0, SidMon 1, David Whittaker, Music Assembler, Fred Monitor, Mark II and DeliTracker CUSTOM.

To use it, just copy the in_sk00l.dll file to WinAmp's plugin directory as usual. Note: There's already a mod player there, this hasn't caused me any problems so far, but if WinAmp decides to use that one instead of in_sk00l.dll when playing MODs (this is easy to see, just do fileinfo when playing a MOD), let me know and I'll try and find a workaround.

Also, please let me know of any mods that are recognised wrong, played wrong, hangs WinAmp or other strange things.
