@ToriHino: You did a great job! What about a General MIDI fileplayer for OPL4 as next project? I only know Meridian for OPL4, but this is not a standalone player which can be used with MultiMente. And what about other fileformats like S3M (ScreamTracker) and IT (Impulse Tracker) Maybe you can combine all those players to one "ROBOPLAY"? Wink That would be cool! Cool

Since our test setup now also is equipped with a PlaySoniq cartridge (with a real SID) we decided to update the RoboSID player (now version 1.5) and make it compatible with this as cartridge as well. You now have the option to play SID files on your OPL4, PlaySoniq or on both, giving you a nice 'stereo' output Cool .

Usage: ROBOSID [-4 | -S | -A] [.SID]
-4: OPL4 output only
-S: Playsoniq SID output only
-A: Force all outputs

By default it will play on all supported cartridges found. Of course the original controls are stil valid: left/right to select subsongs within the sid, up for first, down for last subsong and escape to quit.

Finally we created one .iso image containing all released Robo players and their related music files. Just burn or mount the image, go to the CD drive letter on your MSX and type GO to start. This will launch MultiMente, now just select a music file and press enter to play it.

The .iso can be found for download on http://www.filehosting.org/file/details/571158/RoboMusicPack...

Note: I submitted version 1.5 of RoboSID separate for the Downloads DB as well, for now it can be found in the .iso under \MSX\PLAYERS.

I created a small update to v1.6, now the OPL4 timer is used, no longer needed to switch between 50hz and 60hz:

New update to v1.7. Multiple options in various order can be used now:

Usage: ROBOSID [/O | /T | /S] [.SID]
   /Ox: Output 1=OPL 2=SID 3=Force all | default all detected
   /Tx: Timing 1=OPL 2=VDP             | default OPL when detected
   /Sx: Speed  1=50hz 2=60hz           | default use value in SID file

OPL timing removes the 'video problem'. It is now also possible to play on Playsonic without any OPL3/4 present.

RoboSID v1.7
