When (promised) OPL3 support will be in?
« on: May 21, 2015, 04:12:39 PM »
Here's Delek's post on the subject: http://www.delek.com.ar/forum/show-off-your-work/opl2-cover-starport-bbs-introtune-by-purple-motion/msg623/#msg623 (for those who don't want to click, it basically says OPL3 support will be added "for sure" and it was posted in 2012)

AT2 is outdated software and I'd rather use something nicer like Deflemask. I've also learned that AT2 community is very toxic.

I'm trying to decide the next system to be added in DefleMask, candidates so far:
OPL3
Neo Geo
Atari Pokey

Maybe a poll here in the forum would be the best open decision. What do you think?

Yeah, poll would be great. Though IMO Neo Geo wasn't really popular system and Pokey while nice, can get really close approximation using other 8bit chips already available for Deflemask.

Regarding to OPL3 support, only .vgm output is needed, right?, or there's another specific format nice to have?

I think formats used by Adlib Tracker would be nice to have. And obviously wav export.

WAV export is written in the kernel of DefleMask, so every chip added will have wav export by default. But what are those "formats used by Adlib Tracker"?

It's in AT2 FAQ: http://www.adlibtracker.net/programfaq.php (loads following music formats/instrument formats)

Those are module format, I was asking for output things, like .rom, .vgm, .mmf, etc. DefleMask will not import any other module format than .dmf (Defle Module Format).

But it can EXPORT them.
