If you are upgrading from an older version, it might be a good idea to read the release notes first to learn about new features.

Open ModPlug Tracker runs on about every computer that has Windows or Wine installed. For more details, consult the system requirements.

32-bit or 64-bit, which one is for me?

The 32-bit version will run on all supported systems. Apart from a slight performance increase, there are some situations in which you can benefit from using the 64-bit version:

  • Your computer runs the 64-bit version of Windows 7 or newer.
  • You use no VST plugins, or most of your plugins are available as 64-bit plugins.
  • You need more than 4 GB of RAM for plugins and samples.
  • Do not use the 64-bit version if you use a lot of 32-bit plugins (or vice versa), as this will slow down OpenMPT considerably!
  • Do not install the 32-bit and 64-bit versions into the same directory.

It is recommended to use the installer provided above, as it also offers the possibility to associate module files with OpenMPT and comes with a portable mode which won't do any modifications to the registry and will write all settings to the program directory. In case of the 32-bit version, it will also automatically choose the correct build for you. However, if you prefer a zipped archive for some reason, those are also still available:

  • Here's a nice ModPlug wallpaper by Snu. Resolution: 1600x1200, with alpha transparency, so it also works great at other resolutions.
