Ootake

Post by ValleyBell »

Program: Ootake 2.66 (homepage)
Program Type: VGM Creator/Emulator
Platform: Windows (32-bit)
Logs chips: HuC6280
Comment: Modded by Valley Bell to log vgms. Logging is sample accurate, although scanline accuracy would've probably been enough.

EXE / Source


Notes:
- Japanese characters might or might not be broken, since my computer doesn't support the Shift-JIS codepage. I also had to insert some spaces in Japanese texts to make it compile correctly.
- .NET Framework 4.0 is required to run the emulator. (Sorry, but MS VS 2010 is unable to compile it for .NET 2.0.)
- Unlike WAV logging, clicking the "Output VGM" entry toggles between starting and stopping the VGM log.

Wow, thank you! :heel:

Which makes me think — does PCE VGM supports ADPCM (Oki MSM5205)?

Can't find this in VGM 1.61 specs, so unless this chip has other names no, it's not supported.

No, VGMs don't support the MSM5205. IIRC the main reason I didn't add it with the other OKI chips was, that MAME has board with 4 of them (and VGMs only support 2).

Bug report: No logging VGMs after the first one (appears Output VGM Complete when you try to log a VGM again). If I want to log other, I need to close and open the program again.

That's what I get for not taking a few days to test it.

Please redownload, it should be fixed now.

Ah, too bad, no Cyber City or Legend of Heroes then.

Thank you, great job.

Tempo problems that occurred in the game of Telenet Japan has been resolved.

Additionally, now people can log PC-FX music that is not handled by CDDA on HES files. But screenshots needs to be taken on Mendafen (MESS' PC-FX driver won't run), and a few games has avaliable in HES.

PC-FX HES and PCE HES are not exactly the same.
