Weird Documentation or am I a moron?

Post by synthphase »

The help for UnwieldyTracker's jump commands:

60 Jump xxyy subticks ahead in the wave, disregarding playback speed.
61 Jump xxyy subticks back in the wave, disregarding playback speed.
62 Jump xxyy subticks ahead in the wave relative to playback speed.
63 Jump xxyy subticks back in the wave relative to playback speed.
64 Jump xxyy ticks ahead in the wave, disregarding playback speed.
65 Jump xxyy ticks back in the wave, disregarding playback speed.
66 Jump xxyy ticks ahead in the wave relative to playback speed.
67 Jump xxyy ticks back in the wave relative to playback speed.

however the status text for the command after punching it in:

60: "smp ->"
62: "pl ->"
64: "smp ->"
66: "pl,tk ->"

what does "smp" mean? I always take it to mean samples but it's subticks. I guess it's kinda like samples cuz it disregards playback speed but I'm always confused by the result when I see the "smp". And same goes for "pl" too. What does that mean? There is so much real-estate on the status bar thingy it could just contain the help message. Honestly! I paid top-dollar for my Unwieldytracker!

After messing around with a hex editor and trying to make sense of this I think I found the issue. Command 60 and 64 are both pointed to the same text which is at hex offset 14364 and reads "Jmp -> (smp)". So no way to hack it to remind me I'm using subticks unless I can remove whatever is pointing to the same text line and add a new one.. :(

Anyone here good with a debugger?
