    SNDH support
    At last sc68 is compatible with SNDH files. This is a beta version since I don't have enough SNDH files to perform advanced tests.
    GZIP support
    gzip transparent loader allow to load any supported file (sc68 and sndh) that have been gzipped. Currently this support is limited to file only.
    ICE! support
    ICE transparent loader works like gzip one. The ICE depacker is new version written in "C" from the original ICE 2.4 68000 assembler code source. unice68 library has been added to the source package. This transparent loader should work with any stream supported not only with files.

    from sc68 music package.
    28 August 2003
    sc68 2.0.0 has been released

    Changes in the API:
    This new release is based on a new API. Developers that intend to use sc68 files in their own project may find it more convenient.
    Have a look to the sc68 API documentation for more details.
    Changes in the emulator engine:
    The emulation engine does not change much. Anyway a few bugs may have been removed. Only major change is the centering of the generated PCM signal. It does not change the way it sounds (so I hope) but it should give better visual FX results and helps some broken signal analysis programs (including mp3 encoders and winamp equalizer).
    Changes in the package:
  • xmms and winamp plugins has been removed from the main project and are now distributed as separated package.
  • All sc68 related tools are installed. See developer section for more details.
  • Changes in sc68 resource files:
  • Add support for environment variable to locate resource pathes.
  • Add support for share resource path. Resource files are no more required in user's directory.
  • Add a .bin extension to external replay filename and force lowercase to fix a bug on case sensitive filesystems.
  • Add sndh_ice replay file (thanks to Abyss / Cream).
  • Move the config file (config.txt) at the top of the resource directory instead of Config/config.txt
  • Remove unused resources (including browse info)
  • Coming soon:
    New music files including:
  • Frank Seemann (Tao/Cream) latest tunes (including the UMD 8730 intro 20 minutes long mega remix).
  • David Moss (Spaz/TLB) digital (quartet) tunes from the Ohh Crikey Wat a Scorcher demo.
  • Tunes from MC Laser.
