People who listen to demoscene radio stations like Nectarine probably know the MOD format. A mod file basically is a Midi file that brings its samples along and thus sounds the same everywhere(german readers probably still remember T.W.Geutings Treo 600 experience).

Movemento is a demo of the Modula game engine developed and marketed by indus3. After startup, you are presented with the following screen:

Playing MOD files works well, however, you can’t move forward in files. Also, file playback can’t be paused.

Different playlists can be created easily:

The files are selected with a dialog that works like the Windows Common Dialogue. However, you can’t select more than one file at a time:

Overall, MOD playback for the Palm OS now is a reality. Movemento works, and MOD’s sound nice. However, the program still feels like a proof of concept rather than a mediaplayer suitable for sale due to a few quirks in control…
