Summary0001536: Status bar displays parameters of 1.30 finetune commands incorrectly

When a song is playing or paused, the status bar shows the parameter for finetune commands correctly, in relation to the instrument's pitch bend range.

But when the song is stopped, it always shows it in the range [-128, 127] regardless of the instrument's pitch bend range.

Note: I have not tested this with Parameter Extension commands (#), so I don't know how this issue occurs if those are also used.

Steps To Reproduce
  1. Make an instrument with a pitchbend value other than 1.
  2. Place a note with that instrument in the pattern.
  3. Place a 1.30 finetune command (+ or *) in the same channel and same row.
  4. Move the pattern editor cursor to the finetune command.
  5. Notice how the status bar shows the parameter incorrectly when the song is stopped, and correctly when the song is paused.

The statusbar always uses "live" playback data. I guess there could be a special case if the finetune command is right next to an instrument number, but in all other cases it won't be possible to show the "correct" finetune range.

Oh right. Well then, I suggest adding that special case, it would still be an improvement even if it doesn't cover all cases.

It would be a good idea, yes - the code that is responsible for displaying effects isn't aware of the other cell entries like the instrument number. This might be tricky to implement.

Another idea: how about displaying it without the unit when the song is stopped?

So for example:

  • PB range = 1, Song is playing/paused: -128 cents ~ 127 cents
  • PB range = 2, Song is playing/paused: -256 cents ~ 254 cents
  • PB range = any, Song is stopped: -128 ~ 127

Additionally, the fact that the "unit" is displayed as cents can be a bit misleading; people might confuse it with 1/100th of a semitone when it's actually 1/128th.

I suggest changing the name to something like /128 semitones (e.g. +C0 becomes 64/128 semitones),

or maybe converting the value to cents when displaying it (e.g. +C0 becomes 50 cents or 0.5 semitones), or whatever you think that makes more sense.

It's the same issue - the code simply doesn't know whether the song is playing or not. It receives the information about the current channel state but that doesn't contain any information on whether playback is running or not. That would be more difficult to figure out than the surrounding instrument information, probably.

Managed to sneak some instrument information into the effect name formatting in r16338.
