Beta testers?
Post Posted: Thu Sep 27, 2001 9:52 pm
If you download the new plugin here (46KB) then you should then be able to:

- Play files at any rate (recorded speed, force 50Hz, force 60Hz, or force any speed - last three only work on files with their rate set in the recent VGMTool release)

- Play files directly from URLs, if you have Win98 or later, or Win95 with IE3 or later

The second one is the one more in need of testing, so... after installing, click on any of these links:

Wonder Boy III - the Dragon's Trap
Out Run 3D
Sonic the Hedgehog (3 tracks only)
Psycho Fox (complete except for SFX over ending music)

Those last two are exclusives :) to encourage some testing. All of them support the rate changing. You'll need to be online for them to work. If all is as it should be, the links should open Winamp without asking for confirmation, and download each file when it comes to play it. After that, the files should be reloaded from the browser cache.

If there aren't too many horrible errors I'll probably release this as version 0.12, although I'm hoping to get FM kludged in via another DLL.

Well... this isn't streaming VGM, it's downloading the files completely before playing them. It's an important difference unfortunately. However, you could use VGMs with Shoutcast... the same as you can use WAVs and audio cds with it. Nobody would listen, that's all...

Excellent! Anyone wanting to "upgrade" VGMs to be playable at different rates, drop the VGM (not VGZ) onto VGM Tool, enter 60 in the rate box and click on Write, that's all that's needed.
