For reference, my builds of this have some minor GUI improvements over the last preview build I posted.

Linux: scrollbars only appear when necessary on the song list

Windows: horizontal scrollbar now appears when needed (thanks to an MFC extender I found - MS's listview weirdly doesn't support horizontal scrollbars by default).

There are no playback changes from the last preview, but I'm working on the reported S98 trouble :-)

Awesome, NSF channel separation works again (Mac)! Very very happy.

Excellent! Some of those problem PSFs now play. Fantastic work, guys.

Hmm, Crash Team Racing doesn't appear to play. It just plays silence.

There are also a scant few MiniPSFs that, when imported into Audio Overload, give the usual "nested archive" error. Un-raring and then re-zipping them works, though, as does just playing them un-zipped. An example of one game is Final Fantasy VIII.

I had this assumption that since AO's been out a while now people would start testing new PSF rips on it instead of assuming all players have the same bugs as Corlett's. Apparently I was wrong - I'm downloading everything that's been ripped in the last 8 months or so (which turns out to be a lot) and I'll go through it.

ETA: First up, the 64-bit Linux version had a bug that caused some sets in formats that need more than one file (e.g. minipsf/PSF2/GSF/QSF/MID/ROL/MDX/etc) to crash. I've taken care of it.

Currently there are 8 out of the 230-odd known-to-me PSF sets (based on LLin's download site) that don't work in AO. Those are Bomberman, Crash Team Racing, Einhander, Nekketsu Oyaku, Noel 3, Star Ixiom, Strider, and To Heart. The other 200+ sets should play fine :-)

Actually, your best bet to ensure the AO PSF compatibility streak would be to post on the 2CHN ripping thread, as 95% of recent rips come from there.

And it's more like 450+ unless you're missing something. :P

Lawrence Lin's site doesn't have some of the larger sets (for obvious reasons) like that 700+ MB Katamari packs.

I'm not counting PSF2s - those are an entirely separate level of hell.

They should watch it or I'll post my crappy PSF rip of Madden '97 with no reverb and missing instruments ;-)

Also, what's 2CHN? The obvious URLs are all domain parks and Google's got nothing.

Should've written 2CH, sorry, force of habit.

That's the current one, the older ones are archived (sans the ripped files) here: http://www16.atwiki.jp/soundfile/pages/5.html

Hmm, that site chokes both Amikai and BizLingo, so it's not real useful for me. I did notice someone made a new SSF rip - are there more of those?
