Projects / XMMS-SID


XMMS-SID is an XMMS1 plugin which provides support for playing the so-called "SID tunes". It uses the libSIDPlay1 and/or libSIDPlay2 emulator engines, which provide a virtual emulation/simulation of the Commodore 64 computer and its SID sound chip. It features a file info window, support for STIL database, a song length database, and good configurability.

    Release Notes: This release adds support for libSIDPlay-FP v1.1.x, and some translation and documentation updates.

    •  28 Mar 2013 13:27

      Release Notes: This release fixes 2SID stereo SID tune playback via the libSIDPlayFP backend, fixes MD5 calculation for stereo PSIDv3 and RSIDv3 tunes, changes emulator initialization semantics for better compatibility, adds support for displaying second SID chip model information in title strings, improves automatic reconfiguration of settings if the emulator backend is changed, and support libSIDPlayFP 1.0.1 (required, if using the 1.x series; the old 0.3.x series is still supported as well.)

        Release Notes: This release improved automatic configuration and configuration sanity checking and added a feature that offers first time users the configuration dialog and a notification window that they should configure the plugin. The same system is used when an incompatible configuration is detected. Computation of PSIDv3 and RSIDv3 MD5 sums was corrected, fixing problems with song length database entries not matching such files. Backend initialization was changed for libSIDPlayFP and libSIDPlay2, fixing the issue of 2SID stereo tunes being played "mono" if played after a normal 1-SID tune.

          Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in filter setup for libSIDPlayFP's reSID-FP backend. It fixes a small regression introduced in the SLDB parser, and has a few additional smaller fixes and code cleanups.

          •  10 Nov 2012 13:10

            Release Notes: Support for current libSIDPlayFP 1.0.0 alpha. An improved configuration dialog. Better error resiliency. The libSIDPlayFP version requirement has been downgraded from 0.3.7 to 0.3.5, which is available in Debian Wheezy. There are some bugfixes.

            Re: New release in works, sorry for delay.
            Version 8.0beta5 is out.

            And I have absolutely no idea how to see the sub-song selector. The file information dialog pretty much has become useless since the latest XMMS release. It shows me the filename I'm playing, and which plugin is being used.

            =( I hate the songpos patches and there is none for the current XMMS, besides, why's it called 'seekbar popup'? The seekbar doesn't work while playng SIDs, and there is absolutely no popup.

            New release in works, sorry for delay.
            Version 0.8.0 is currently under development, but it has taken quite much time (due to other projects and laziness). It's coming, with blazing new features, have faith! :)
