So, since there appears to be an emerging SSF scene (even though the player is incomplete), who thinks that Wikipedia's SSF page should be updated? At the very least, the python script could be linked. Though, if it's updated, it should be made completely and unmistakably clear that Highly Theoretical is incomplete, and needs to be updated for full and proper support. Perhaps if this is done, someone else will jump on it, and make a plugin for SSF files (if Neill doesn't do it).

I just like to see that the emulated formats receive recognition... Also, neat stuff for SSF. Mouser X over and out.

Okay, here's a large KSS pack. Those are usually done from MSX games, though there's a bunch Sega Master System and Game Gear as well, and a few rips from Arcade roms.

I'm posting it here mainly in the hope that someone (kingshriek?) as per usual will post his collection with a few dozen more files. :)

This has only game files, my homebrew KSS folder is a mess I wouldn't want to share with the world. Enjoy.

@Mouser X:
I think the SSF developments are still at a too early stage for a Wikipedia update. Also, the Python script is still preliminary (limited driver initialization and compatability issues), so I'd rather not have it linked on something as visible as Wikipedia. I'm not sure what the best avenue is for stimulating SSF player development, but there are surely more appropriate ways than Wikipedia (the DSF and SSF pages are really questionable at best).

@Knurek:
I only have a small collection of KSS files (mainly the Konami SCC ones), so I'm not going to be able to help out here. I'll be downloading your pack to update my collection, though. Thanks for putting it together - I really don't keep track of the MSX scene at all.

Also, I just found out that Yabause can conveniently dump 68000 RAM and have made the necessary updates in the ssfdump script to support this (SSF is supported same as before w/ pmdump). I also replaced the embarrasingly bad code I had for searching for 68000 RAM in the pmdump output.

Sweet, Shining Force Gaiden series soundtracks! And here I was hoping someone would rip VGZ files. Weird... awesome though, thanks. I don't understand what MSX music consists of.. seems weird that there are master system/game gear/FM soundtracks among it all.

KSS is a all around format, it's just that most of the rips are from MSX.
Similar to VGM, there are SMS, GG, Megadrive and some other computers (Colecovision IIRC) as well supported.

From what I recall, the KSS format supports Z80-based systems running with several sound chips:
- YM2149 (MSX PSG)
- YM2413 (OPLL)
- Various OPL* chips

I'm not sure of it though.

Concerning the SSF plugin, is does anyone know how to contact Neill? If we notify him of the progress, he may update the plugin. (Or at least release the source.) Just an idea.

Thx for the KSS Knurek, Here's my current pack, I haven't added your recent posts to it though.

Someone set us up the SSF arvhive:

We've got to get that plugin fixed...soon.

Next version of Audio Overload should have SSF support and RB's been saying the bugs in in_ssf are caused most probably by incorrect 68k emulation core.
