Bleep! is a music player for NSF and GBS files which was updated to version 1.07 on May 6th. It has undergone significant changes since our last posting, v1.04, from 1999. Here's a complete list:
- Pulse channels are now 25% louder than triangle, noise, and DMC
- Linear timeout now works properly, fixing Alfred Chicken, Zelda 2, etc.
- DMC hacks were added to reduce clicking in Kirby, Lolo 3, and most Konami games
- The mixing algorithm was totally rewritten. Benefits include: louder output, less obvious clipping, and stronger click removal.
- PAL timing (including the 1.773 MHz CPU frequency) is now supported.
- Output is now monaural rather than stereo-but-actually-monaural.
- VRC7 feedback has been implemented.
- Expansion sound channels are now filtered, when filtering is enabled.
- Added a Winamp EQ bug workaround.
- The NSF file info dialog box shows more information and allows editing.
- The title format strings have been changed: %t = Title, %f = Filename, %a = Artist, %p = Full path, %c = Copyright, %e = Expansion sound (new). Old format strings (using %1-%5) will still work.
- The current song number is now shown next to "kbps". The maximum song number may optionally be shown next to "kHz" as well.
- Added a standalone text-mode player.
- Added GBS support.
- Added Famicom Disk System, Namco 106, and Sunsoft 5B.
- Improved accuracy of 2A03 and VRC7.
- Fixed multiple bugs in the 2A03 CPU, which now also emulates undocumented instructions.
- Source code released under GPL.
- Fixed open-bus read behavior on $40xx.
- Fixed a type-to-search bug.
