xm4smps is a program created by Puto that converts songs from the XM (eXtended Module) format to the SMPS (Sample Music Playback System) format hence allowing hackers to easily put custom music in their hacks. It runs under Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and pretty much any other operating system which supports Qt 3 , and obsoletes nineko's xm3smps. Following a precise planning, it has been released exactly one year after its predecessor (give or take a few hours), as a sort of unofficial legacy.
Created entirely from scratch, xm4smps has an interface similar to xm3smps. Internally, however, xm4smps is completely different from xm3smps. Some of the key differences to note:
Version 4.1 'beta' was released on Sep. 10 2011 to fix a bug causing it to crash on XMs created with OpenMPT 1.19+. No future updates are planned as of this time.
