³þ HOW TO START THE MUSIC DISK þ³
Well, you got this far so we assume you know how to read. If that, *maybe*
you also know how to run a program. That's about all ya gotta do to begin
your brief escape from the everyday rat-race to have a moment of tranquility.
Anyways, enough about that trip to the Bahamas, lets talk about the MusicDisk!
To run this fine piece of work and remarkably most other quality software you
type the name, in this case being:
C:\DEMOS\PM> digital mist
if you wish to hear the song with the filename "mist.dsm"
NOTE: - Please remove any Disk Cache software you may run before enjoying this
Music Disk. (ie: SmartDrive, NCache, HotMomma, etc)
- The first time DIGITAL.EXE is run, it will add 14 bytes of
configuration information to the end of itself. This may cause
a warning to occur from virus checking programs!
If you are just one of those people that can't enjoy simplicity, please
refer to the added confusion below:
Command Line Switches:
/S -- Allows you to Re-Configure your sound card.
/# -- # Being a 1 thru 7, allows you to start
the Disk on any song.
/V -- Default Volume to start player at. (0-64)
/PM_RULES -- We all jump out of your screen and dance
³þ WHAT COOL THINGS CAN I DO WITH THE PLAYER? þ³
There are limited things to do while in the player because of many people's
urge to drum subconsciously at the keyboard while listen'n to da tunes.
So, to overcome this we kept to only a few keys to allow you freedom to whip
the drool from your chin.
Any +/- keys -- Turn the Main Volume up and down
Arrow Up/Down -- Cycle thru the song arrangement
Arrow Right/Left -- Rewind/Fast Forward the Current Order
Numbers 1-7 -- Dial in your favorite tune
³þ WHO THE HELL ARE THE PSYCHIC MONKS ANYWAYS? þ³
Some of you know us but for those that have never seen or heard of us, a brief
introduction is in order!
This is the current member list in the order of joining.

All code is 100% assembly except for misc. utilities written in Pascal/C
Music is written in FastTracker 1.01 by Mr. H/Triton
Graphics are made in Deluxe Paint, The Draw, and anything we can basically
get our hands on.
And as always, we often coordinate in each others work and dabble in many
areas of interest.
We of course welcome all Raves and Questions. Rants have their own mailbox
also known as /dev/null. (Don't expect replies)
(Caution, many members of PM are subjected to limited delusions of grandeur.
If you notice a member in this sick and demented state please just agree with
what they say and keep your distance. And remember, NEVER take them
seriously when they call members of your family nasty names)
³þ SONG INFORMATION AND OTHER LITTLE TIDBITS þ³
Some notes about the songs included:
"Castle of the Mists" - This song was a bit rushed (we needed a new leadoff
song), but I think it turned out well. Inspired
by the simple fact that I had never done a mod
in 6/8 time before :)
"Ethereal Passage" - This tune was originally meant to be background
music for a demo we had planned to release a
few months ago. However, since the plans never
worked out, I decided to insert it into the
"Dimension 2012" - The only song with a drum loop :) This is a vaguely
dance-ish style with a few interesting chords
thrown in... I apologize if some of the samples
aren't perfectly looped, they may click slightly
but I feel that they were too good to throw away :)
"Eternity (Remix)" - This is a slightly chopped down remix of the
originally released "Eternity". There aren't very
many obvious changes, except for a half-step key
change and the addition of panning/dolby.
"Ice River v4.0" - Yes, I had to rewrite this 4+ times to get it how
I liked it. Special thanks to MrDestroyer/TDT for
the very slick river/thunder samples.
"Atomic Power" - Written originally for a loader for my friend
Syntax Error/iCE, sysop of the PowerGrid BBS. Since
the loader never quite made it (ahem), I figured
I couldn't leave it on the shelves any longer ;)
"Andante" - Cheesy? I don't know, some people think so. It's
a bit mundane, but I think it sounds nice and
the string arrangements are kinda interesting.
I guess it depends whether you like the
slow piano/strings style.
³þ WHAT ARE THESE .DSM FILES?? þ³
A DigiSound Module is our own format developed by Pelusa. We have developed
this format in use with DigiSound Interface Kit that is used in this disk.
DigiSound Modules are smaller than normal mods due to pattern compression.
They also share some common ideas with S3M files as in they use amplification.
Basically though, the DSM's are ProTracker compliant modules with a few added
features. All playing code and Sound Blaster code was written in assembly by
Pelusa. Gravis UltraSound support was coded by Vernor.
