Re: Paulo Simoe's Lance replayer

A short status update: I can now use the player in "no trash"-mode pretty much like the original Lance player. One call to init the module/player, one call per VBL to play the module and one call to stop.

But there are some issues I'm not sure how to handle. There are *lots* of calls to Paolo's own memory handler in mt_init. The problem is that this system hogs all available memory, so if you use it you pretty much lock the rest of your code to this system. IMO it must be replaced. Replacing it with calls to Malloc would be easy, but not sure how GEMDOS likes this many allocations.

The second issue is that mt_init writes around 350kb past it's allocated memory... It happens both with my modified code and the original code. Not sure what happens here, and there's a lot of code to debug to figure it out. Looks like the player has never been tested outside Paolo's test framework, and it has worked by accident since the module has been placed at the top of the heap.

Not sure what to do know, I'll have to meditate a bit on this :)
