Website overhaul

As you can see, the front page has changed quite a bit! The new custom theme should be easier and more fun to use.

One of the most notable changes is that the search box now points to the OpenMPT wiki, as there is not much interesting content on the front page that would be useful to search for.

The new English OpenMPT Wiki goes live

Replacing the old and outdated XWiki, our new English OpenMPT Wiki has gone live today. The articles were written up and copied from Harbinger's Offline Help Manual since last year.

Server maintenance - This weekend

The server hosting the OpenMPT services will go down for maintenance on Saturday. Expect a few hours of downtime. Our download resources will still be available under a different URL during that time.

Have fun!

Help us creating the new OpenMPT manual

We are in the middle of setting up a new English OpenMPT Wiki. It will serve as a new knowledge base and form a basis for the new offline help documents that will eventually be included in the OpenMPT download package.

MPT-FR is back!

MPT-FR used to be an independent French ModPlug community. Unfortunately, the site got into hosting trouble and went off-line earlier this year.
Now, the MPT-FR community is back in the form of a French sub community on ModPlug Central.
