Btw according to the composer the YMZ278B OPL4 version was the original, which was then downconverted to YM2413 OPLL. The deadline was apparently really short, just one week!

New video: VGMPlay for MSX, Sega music (SN76489 + YM2413)

This video features the new SN76489 DCSG support, as well as the YM2413 OPLL. I picked a couple of songs from games for Sega consoles:

  1. Sega jingle (Sega MkIII, SN76489)
  2. Pókemon (Sega Pico, SN76489)
  3. Space Harrier (Sega MkIII, SN76489 + YM2413)
  4. Out Run 3D (Sega MkIII, YM2413)

The music is playing on my MSX turbo R, using the built-in OPLL and the MMM (“Musical Memory Mapper”) sound cartridge for the DCSG. The Franky and PlaySoniq cartridges are also supported for DCSG playback.

The observant viewer may notice that the Space Harrier theme also lists the YM2151 OPM; this sound chip is not actually playing, but it’s listed because the 1.01 VGM file format did not contain separate information block for OPLL and OPM.

With the SN76489 all sound chips available for MSX are now supported, so an 1.0 release is coming soon.

Indeed ;)

After a month of hard work, VGMPlay for MSX 1.0 is released!

You can get it from the project page. Also check the videos on Youtube.

Supported sound chips

  • AY-3-8910 PSG / YM2149 SSG
  • YM2151 OPM (SFG-01/05)
  • YM2413 OPLL (MSX-MUSIC, FM-PAC)
  • YM3526 OPL (MSX-AUDIO, Music Module, MoonSound)
  • YM3812 OPL2 (MoonSound)
  • YMF262 OPL3 (MoonSound)
  • YMF278B OPL4 (MoonSound)
  • Y8950 MSX-AUDIO (Music Module, 256K sample RAM recommended)
  • K051649 Konami SCC
  • SN76489 DCSG (Franky, Playsoniq, Musical Memory Mapper)

Usage instructions

Run VGMPlay from MSX-DOS 2, specifying the VGM file to play on the command line:

Code:
vgmplay [options] <file.vgm>


Note that the compressed VGZ format is not supported, rename the file to .vgm.gz and extract it using gzip or your favourite decompression software to retrieve the uncompressed VGM file.

For more information, check the manual.

I was thinking to get the correct chip information for the 1.01 format by checking the first 1K of song data for OPM commands… Show OPM when found, OPLL otherwise. I’m guessing there are no version 1.01 VGMs which use both OPLL and OPM?

  • New timer: 1130 Hz if a MoonSound or OPL3 is present
  • Emulation of SN76489 DCSG on PSG
  • Emulation of YM2203 OPN, YM2608 OPNA and YM2612 OPN2 on Yamaha SFG
  • Translation of YM2612 OPN2 frequencies to correct tuning
  • Playback of YM2612 OPN2 PCM samples on MSX turboR
  • Playback of dual YM2203 OPN on a single Makoto + PSG or Yamaha SFG + 2x PSG
  • Playback of Y8950 MSX-AUDIO on MoonSound or OPL3, without ADPCM
  • Support of the DalSoRi R2 4MB RAM mode
  • Dual chip support for more chips
  • Support for VGM loop base and modifier
  • Improved detection of MSX-AUDIO, MoonSound, PSG, MMM and Franky
