Look into the future of SIDPLAY/Windows.

Please note any bugs you find and let me know of them and of any improvements you can think of.

System requirements:

This program is very CPU intensive, so a Pentium processor is highly recommended, but it can be run on a fast 486. Memory is usually no problem. Operating system: Windows 3.1 or higher, Windows 95 or Windows NT. The 32-bit version needs Win32s if run under Windows 3.1. And, off course, you need a soundcard. Note that the PC speaker or a plain Adlib soundcard won't do.

Beta reports:

Please state which version you've tested, under what OS you ran it and how you provoked the program to behave badly.

About the different versions

There is no difference in functionality between the win16 and the win32s version, except that the win32s version is almost twice as fast. The win95 version is the only one being developed further.


About the author:

My name is Adam Lorentzon. I used to study Computer Science at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. For a long time I used SIDPLAY/DOS, but when development of the DOS version stopped, and there was no support for real soundcards (Gravis Ultrasound, that is :), I hacked this little Windows port of the ever-improving UNIX version of SIDPLAY by Michael Schwendt.
If you have any comments, suggestions, beta reports or questions about SIDPLAY/Windows, don't hesitate to mail me!
