Summary0001690: have more than 128 assignable pitches for microtonality

when you assign a custom tuning in .mptm, it has to squeeze all the octaves between a range of “note -64” and “note 63”. this makes all but the most rudimentary tuning systems have an unusably small range to work with. it would be nice if this range was larger so that i could write music in 31tet

Has the bug occurred in previous versions?
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

(i realise this may not be as feasible because the 128 pitches is trying to keep midi compatibility...)

It's not (just) MIDI - everything in OpenMPT is built around the 10-octave note range of the IT format, both internal data structures and file format structures. While it might be technically possible to achieve a range of about 7 octaves or so with 31TET without requiring a file format change, it would still require lots of other internal changes.

10-octave note range of the IT format

Also in IMAGO Orpheus

...yes but that's not what the original ModPlug engine was made to support. Even if Orpheus supported 19 octaves, that wouldn't mean that we would have added support for those octaves in OpenMPT for the same reason as this feature request right here is difficult to add.
