ATTENTION: Squirrel musicians using Windows VISTA and Windows 7!!!!!

You may experience strange problems when compiling songs. This is because the notepad.exe included with both those OSes, is goofy.

A safe alternative is Notepad++, and is actually, in all honesty, a better choice.

It is what is used in the DOOM Demonstration video. You have alot more editing options, some neat tricks, multiple files at once, etc.....

and best of all, its FREE, and saves your files in the proper plaintext mode !!!

Squirrel Fix

There was a bug I found. More like an oversight. You were unable to define various modes in Channel 0 (setup channel).

This was screwing up the use of macros that toggle between modes. Now its fixed. You can flip between Modes 0,1 and 2 in channel 0 macros. Just dont use those macros anywhere but channel 5 or 6.... since 1-4 cant produce noise.

Now, you can experiment with drum patterns alot more.

just grab the archive again, and it will have the updated compiler (mml2pce.exe).
