You're right, I confused my prehistoric PC files. I meant ROL.

I plan to help out over here... I located something at PSF Central. Although the site hasn't beed updated to say USF Is availble, there are some programs with source codes downloadable. Does this help you, Richard? wink
Click here!
Sorry if you are still hesitant to inplement PSF or USF into Audio Overload. Just helping out!
One more thing...
Here's the link to USF Central 2.0!

I won't be implementing either PSF or USF, though I believe R. Belmont might take them on at some point, as he at least knows the PSX hardware.

If I can help at all with implementing USF support let me know. I'd love to see a clean, better written player, but if I tried rewriting it from scratch it'd be worse than it is now...

I think a good starting point there would be contacting whoever did the BeOS port and seeing if we can get their source - it's pretty much bound to be more portable by definition.

There are a few wacky Japanese formats I'd like to see supported in Audio Overload, especially since there aren't any other players for them for Mac. :3

FMP and PMD are especially two I'd like; they're related formats used on the PC-98 series of computers. Like MDX on the X68000, they have both FM and PCM parts with the PCMs stored in external files; as far as I can tell, FMP supports only about one PCM channel, while PMD supports more. FMPs have the OPI, OVI and OZI extensions, while PMDs have M, M2 and MZ extensions; they both use PCMs in the PVI format.

The source for FMP songs is in the MVI, MZI and MPI formats, while PMDs seem to use just MZI. (There may be others, but none of the ones in my collection have other extensions.) For the life of me I can't find the site it came from, so I've uploaded an example, along with its compiled version, here .

Unlike MDX, which as far as I can tell usually has PCMs for each set, PCM files are often shared between songs, and some popular sets are very widely used.

You can find source to an XMMS player here ; C60\'s page may also be useful - he made the commonly-used Windows WinFMP and PMDWin drivers. You can find example songs and PCMs at Human Experiment\'s FMP/PMD page , although he doesn't distinguish between the formats and you'll find both FMPs and PMDs in the same archives. Maak has a set of his older FMP songs on his site, as well. He doesn't include the required PCMs, but you can find the filenames in the readme file.

Ultramarine would be nifty, too, but since as far as I can tell there are only about nine songs in circulation it's probably hardly worth the effort. ^.~ It seems to be a PCM-based format where, like with MDX, PMD and FMP, the samples are stored in external files instead of in the songs themselves. If you want to give it a go anyway, the Ultramarine site seems to have source code available for its player.

You can find example songs and a set of PCMs (used by all of the songs I've been able to find) at Tan-Y\'s site , and more example songs at Gay-LLA\'s site .

I'm really glad to see S98 support added, incidentally! I'm looking forward to when it's updated in the Mac version.

And thank you, incidentally, for reading this - I hope adding FMP/PMD seems possible!
