This is a demo that plays midi music files on the VB. The nice thing is that we don't need to convert songs to some special "VB format" to play music using this. Simply embed standard midi files into the rom and use a few simple functions to play them, like LoadSong() and PlaySong() that you must call continuously at a set interval.

I plan to release source code and documentation some weeks after the compo, after I clean it up :) I will also add more features like stereo, different volume and different instruments.

Obviously this isn't much fun in the emulator :P but it works nicely on the flashboy.

very good indeed, music player for the vb, not even the gameboy had that :-P

vb is more then just playing games since now we have a music player and who knows what more features the vb will have in time :-P

Thanks guys, I was going to make a "real" entry (zelda demo), but I was without my dev pc the last 5 weeks, so I whipped this together at the last minute. It would have been a shame not to participate at all in the contest, but I must say the other entries are looking really good and several of them are worthy winners :)

Also, the Advanced Map Editor could be considered a semi-entry :P

at first glance, this one is less interesting than the other entries, but if you think about it, it will be a great step forward for the homebrew scene once the source is released. i'd be happy to include the midi player in blox 2. great work, dan! :)

Sounds exciting but doesn't work for me. Is it just a emu problem? I'm using Reality Boy (don't have a Flash Boy yet).

reality boy does not support sound! you could try red dragon, but it does not have perfect sound emulation too.

This music engine will be great to future game releases and for most the current on-progress projects
