Quote from: mr_lou on 10:12, 28 November 10Trying to generate some YM files from some of my SKS files isn't going that well.I know I can create YM files using WinAPE, but1) I don't use Windows2) It doesn't feel right to need to play the music before being able to get a YM file out of it3) It seems logical that the STARK2YM tool on the STarKos DSK would do a better job, since it knows exactly how the format is built.But the YM files STARK2YM generates for me are firstly quite large, up to 160 kb in size, and secondly I can't play them with either of the two YM players I have on my system.ymplayer says "Error in loading file 1.YM: Unknow YM format !"and Markus' Java YM Player just kinda hangs there.Any ideas?
Quote from: arnoldemu on 12:42, 29 November 10yeah it's generating uncompressed ym files.Try LHAing them, then renaming that to .ym and try again.
Quote from: robcfg on 18:42, 29 November 10There a couple of YM revisions with minor differences, but most probabky your player expects a YM3 or YM3B file while modern players/convertes generate YM5 files.
Quote from: mr_lou on 20:13, 29 November 10I'm so stupid. When exporting the files using ManageDsk it included the AMSDOS header. Doh!
Quote from: Executioner on 05:32, 30 November 10You know you can export the files directly from WinAPE by opening the disk editor (CTRL-SHIFT-F1) and just drag/drop the files. There is a checkbox to turn AMSDOS headers on/off.
Quote from: redbox on 11:49, 28 November 10WinAPE doesn't appear to record them properly - it does whilst caching the file to disk but then when it finishes the file becomes 2kb odd in size and isn't right.
Quote from: Executioner on 02:06, 01 December 10Is this actually a problem, or have you figured it out? I think WinAPE initially creates the uncompressed YM file, then compresses it using LHA when you close the output file or the emulator.
