Pardon my ignorance, but audio on msx is a huge black hole for me.

Is it possible to play file like these from Jogeir Liljedahl on MSX? Ideally with a replayer in assembly...

Yes, but you will need additional hardware.

Don't forget to insert an OPL4 cartridge in your MSX.

So cool guys!

Both players are standalone programs. Does any of them have replayer code that can be used in separate projects (like new games)?

The source code for RoboPlay (be it in C) as well as NOP Mod Player is provided as well, so you can use or modify it to whatever you like.

Nice.

Would be ideal with a licence description among those those files though, so that one is sure to treat it correct, and not risk having to legal discussions down the line. Although, I admit, a statement like the above from the author may work fine in a homebrew game.

I don't think you would be able to get rich or earn any money with a player code nowadays. License will not help in that case since in a dispute I would not invest money in a lawyer to win the argument. It will only cost me money (and it already did if you think about the hours invested).

I have a paypal link on the site. You wanna know how many donations we received? NONE, ZERO, NADA. And I am not expecting any. That's just the current state of the MSX scene. Let's not pretend anybody can make a living of it.

If you use the code in other software I would be nice if you credit the author and send a copy of the software which is using the player code. If more people would use the code there would be more software with OPL4 support. That would be a win for the community.

Agree. Doing development on the MSX won't generate money. I just want to make sure I don't step on anyone's toes Big smile

I guess the post above did move at least 1 person to do an donation. Thanks for that!
