Small bugfix in Windows 32bit executable:
During compiling the .exe file, an error occured and JAVA did not get enough memory.
Fixed this now.
For those users, who already downloaded "JavaCPC Win32 exe": Please download this package again.

Only for the .EXE! JAR-version works well.

This looks ueber-cook, but what does it do? It looks like it's passing the mp3 as code to the CPC and the CPC translates it to border stripes?

This, btw, is a lovely song, what is it? really lovely!

LOL! I am simply playing the buffered WAV of the mp3! Due playback is done via CPC emulation, I simply read actually byte to be played and manipulate the GateArray to set border colours. Thats all.

Ooh cool, thanks for the heads-up, just downloaded! Will take it with me on the car tomorrow.

By the way, could you maybe release a stand-alone mp3 player that would do CPC-style visualizations? This would be soooo neat!

Ah what a pity! I envision an mp3 player with a visualization window that shows a CPC loading screen. This could be fed by album cover art passed through a CPC convertor on the fly. The main window could have the cassette deck :)
