Hi all!
I am trying to run music files via ROBOPLAY with Multimente.
In MMRET.DAT I have:
.D00 a:\MUSIC\FILES\ROBOPLAY\ROBOPLAY $C
.SNG a:\MUSIC\FILES\ROBOPLAY\ROBOPLAY $C
...
When I select a music file with Multimente, it finds the OPL4 but doesn't play the file because is looking for "D00.PLY", "SNG.PLY"... in the same directory but I do not have those PLY files.

I have the loader and the .Ply in the BIN folder which is on the path of the autoexec.bat, so any format works by clicking on any song.

I would also like to propose that Roboplay loads the .IMS files.

Robert, where can I find the PLY files? In the roboplay link there is nothing.
Good to hear from you.

Indeed by default RoboPlay will look for the .PLY files in the same folder as where RoboPlay itself was started from (the .PLY files are part of the RoboPlay distribution). So you could do like guantxip and place them in an existing folder (which is already part of the path) or add the RoboPlay folder to the search path.

Regarding the .IMS file: added to the backlog Smile

The PLY are the drivers for each format, for example Sid.ply, mid.ply ... I think they came with the program.

They posted a link with a multitude of music files available in the Roboplay forum

I think I'm going mad.
My problem is that I cannot find the .PLY drivers.
WHERE THEY ARE??? In the ROBOPLAY players folder there are files like 000.c, 000.h, not xxx.PLY

They’re in that zip archive.

You can find RoboPlay itself (including the PLY files) on this location. The music files can be found here.
