PC-Engine tracker

DefleMask author has included the huc6280 audio into his tracker app. I messed with it a bit and once you figure out how to edit the instruments and waveforms, then it becomes fairly familiar tracker territory. It has a macro function (in envelope form) for waveform updating, which is nice (ala Bloody Wolf and a few other rare PCE games). Doesn’t seem to emulate the ‘click’ for the offset waveform pointer though (maybe I’ll put in a request for it). You can find it here: http://www.delek.com.ar/forum/changelogs/changelog-6/

The native format is DWF, but VGM is now spec’d for 6280 so you can save it in that format too. Shouldn’t be too hard to write a VGM player for PCE. So far, I haven’t seen any support for DDA mode in the tracker yet (VGM format supports it though).

    This is amazing news!, I’m using it a lot!, by the way the format files are .DMF extension, no .DWF

  2. I wrote a VGM player for the PC-E a couple of years ago. It only plays SMS/GG VGMs at the moment, but adding support for the 6280 VGM commands would be trivial, so perhaps I’ll release an updated version.
