I found another thread that asked about looping PSFs indefinitely and the answer was something about modifying the the tags using a tool.

Is there a way to do that with all different file types? I've tried Googling but have found nothing definitive.

Right now AO will play a file through a couple times then fade it out and move on to the next one in the playlist, but I would like to get files to loop without stopping (SPCs as well as files for Genesis and other systems)

Thanks

SPCs should auto-loop, as should most VGM tracks when the "Loop VGM Tracks" setting is checkmarked in the Settings tab.

Thanks so much for the reply. I've been waiting a while for someone to get back.

I don't see a Settings tab anywhere. This is what it looks like for me. (Windows 8 64-bit)



Unless there is some kind of tag in the actual music file itself, but I don't know where that is either.

You can't loop SPCs beyond their tagged length, that's a limitation of the current player.

Is there a way for me to change the file's tags?

And was that ever a feature of the player? If so, is there an older version I could get that has that capability?

Ahhh...I had forgotten about the Windows version of AO. RB had put that into the OS X version but I guess that never made it to the Windows version. frown

Great. So now I have to get a Mac to listen to video game music.

There's an embarrassment of riches on Windows for SPC playback; I think most people use Foobar2000 and some plugins. AO exists on Windows basically because I could do it, not because it's better than e.g. a fully loaded Foobar2000 setup. It's not like on Mac/Linux where it's often the only option.

I actually have Foobar2000 and use that as my main music player. I had not idea it could play SPC as well. I am going to give it a whirl and see if I can get it to play music on a constant loop.

Thanks for all your hard work, Mr. Belmont!

http://kode54.foobar2000.org/ has a bunch of good VGM-related plugins for Foobar2000.

I use Winamp 5.52 + the Alpha II SPC plugin (SNESAmp). Full access to any feature I need for SPCs. NotSoFatso plugin works great for NSFs as well. And very easy access to writing WAVs to disk for playback on any audio device using either the embedded timer info in the SPC/NFS/NFSE or user specified times.

Oh, and this works inside CrossOver in OS X as well without slowdown or crackling sound issues. smile
