Previous: What are .MDZ files?
(This section is intended for composers)
There are of course some good reasons for using them:
- Every OPENCP user sees your description automatically when he moves the
cursor over the file
- The module type is also stored in .MDZ files, so you can
explicitely force OPENCP to play your Module in Protracker (or FastTracker)
mode, for example.
- Even if the user does not use OPENCP, he can still read your description,
because .MDZ is a simple, human readable text format
- Creating .MDZ files is almost no extra work (you can create a
complete .MDZ file from within OPENCP in less than one minute)
So, as you see, using .MDZ files has many advantages, but (almost)
no disadvantages. It is surely worth trying.
