Found a problem with the .GBS engine:
Game & Watch Gallerys 1-3 don't work.

Do they work with blargg's emulator? It's important to know if it's our fault or his wink

I have yet to test that but here is where the files are from:
http://drag.wootest.net/gbs/

I tried it in GMB, didn't work.

Hey, thanks for the link! It's definitely been a while since new gbs files have been released.

Yeah, it's nice to see new GBSes. I guess we'll raise the blargg-signal (whatever that looks like) =)

Seems 2 works fine even though 1 and 3 don't. Could there be something wrong with the files?

What is that? I'm on it! ...

Apparently that GBS is setting to a non-existent bank (four banks, trying to select the 26th one). My current code uses bank 0 in this case, and I think that may have been necessary for some other GBS files. If the number of banks is a power of two, the hardware-wise thing to do would be to use the modulus (second bank in this case). The change is simple:

Code:
// Gbs_Emu.cpp line 74:
if ( n >= bank_count )
{
    dprintf( "set_bank out of range: %d, bank_count: %d\n", (int) n, (int) bank_count );
    n %= bank_count;
}
I should test the new GBS music that's been released. I'm just so put off by the umpteen-page threads of people haphazardly posting new rips and links to pages of random collections. I wish they'd get together and makte a centralized site that accepts submissions using an automatic script.

Is there anyway to edit the .GBS to use a different bank?

Sure, that's the ripper's job (or someone should point to me to where the GBS spec specifies what happens for bad bank values, since the number of banks is sometimes not a power of two, like when the ripper adds some code to an extra bank).

OK, I was able to quickly fix Game & Watch Gallery 3 soundtrack , but my attempted fix of the first one resulted in some interesting sounds.

PPC user here reporting that everything works fine so far.

I have tested as many formats as possible including the test tracks that came with it. In this zip file is the Trio Sonata.orc This is lovely. Does anyone know where to get more Tandy Radio Shack .ORC TRS-80 Orchestra-90 music? The closest thing I can find is the content list of a TOSEC set that contains a lot more Bach. frown
