Aye, we really should get our act together on this...

Hello. I'm a PPC Mac users still running Mac OS 10.3.3...

If you don't have anything that would require running Mac OS 10.4 or later, I got a backward compatibilty idea for the universal binaries:

1. Use GCC 3.3 for PPC. This ensures backward compatibilty to 10.2, or something like that, unless you're using 10.3 or later specific features. If you're using 10.4 or later specific features, then go ahead and keep GCC 4.0.
2. Use GCC 4.0 for Intel. That was obvious...

I'm sorry, but I am not prepared to support obsolete operating systems. I'd encourage you to use Game Music Box instead, which has all the engines you're likely to get full speed with on your setup.

OK. In that case, the only new format that I won't be able to test (and actually hear, in this case) is PSF2 and any other later formats you and the others add support to.

I'm pretty much done then in a case like this, since I have the most recent version of Audio Overload actually released.

But before I go, I would like to report one bug with the Super Mario Bros. 3 NSF set... it has a sample looping problem in the files themselves. I also had this with Game Music Box.

Earlier versions of Audio Overload actually don't have this problem, believe it or not!

PSF2 wouldn't run on a 300 MHz system anyway, so it doesn't matter smile

Revision: It would run, but very slowly. The only way to actually run it is to export it to WAV, then play it. I had the same problem (somewhat) on the PSF files.

As for Game Music Box, there is a sample looping problem with the Super Mario Bros 3 NSF set. The problem is corrected by using older NSF players, like an older version of Audio Overload. Game Music Box hasn't been updated in a year, so I'm doubtful that'll be fixed anytime soon... somewhat, unless the developer is still here, but busy.

Game Music Box uses the same engine as Audio Overload. If blargg fixes bugs in the engine chances are both will be updated.

*jaw drops* Hey, that could actually be a good thing!

Speaking of which, I should submit an idea to the Game Music Box section.
