Hello. There is one MT2 file. VST plugins are required to play it. Such plugins are not available and are not supported. How do I play the file?

Most of those plugins are shipped with MadTracker 2 (but are also available separately), so you can add the VST folder from a MadTracker 2 installation through OpenMPT's plugin manager. The rest of the plugins can be found through KVR Audio or your favourite search engine. This is not an OpenMPT bug.

I found all but one. Drumatic_22. Another question. Is it possible to add VST plugin support to Winamp player plugin

No, VST support is not currently planned for libopenmpt and players that depend on it. One of the problems is that VSTs are typically not redistributable. It's best to render such files to a streamed format for your media player. It also has the advantage that it saves a lot of CPU processing power as many VSTs require lots of CPU power.
