Perhaps you might be interesting in developing a sort of NES SMPS clone? If you do, then I can strip the actual song data and use that for your port.
The NES has 4 channels (well, up to 6 if you use the DMC and the VRC6 channels), I don't know how good it would be to directly use SMPS songs.

By the way, whatever format you're going to use, and whoever is going to compose the songs, I will offer my help if you need a tracker or a converter of some sort.

I've already made some NSF's. It has 2 square wave, 1 triangle wave, 1 noise generator, one DPCM, and I'm pretty sure the rest of them are Famicom only.

Also, invincibility music (it's really just Toot Toot Sonic Warrior)

I was just saying that it wouldn't be simple to directly use SMPS songs, as they usually have up to 9 channels.

This game needs it's own thread.

I made some more music; a bonus stage, and lots of sound effects in NSF format.

.. hm, something sounds wrong in that nsf of toot toot sonic warrior, but I can't put my finger on it..

EDIT: Found it, the lead is a little off. Artistic license?

OK, here goes my stupid post: does anybody know where to download a NSF player?

(what the-, surely you'll answer: Google it :/ Please be nicer than that and give links or something)

Well, I'm not sure if these may help any, but from what I see, you can get some here

(I think I contributed, I don't know.)

Yup, this kind of thing is what I expected. Thanks you two.

EDIT: listened to the musics. Hey, couldn't you add looping? :/ The beginning of GHz is missing, and I guess that adding some drum intro at the beginning of the Toot Toot Sonic Warrior music would have been better. By the way, the latter is the one I like the most from the four :) Or did I miss a file?

EDIT 2: NES has five channels, huh? Internally, yeah, but from VirtuaNSF:
  • Internal

    • Square 2
    • Saw (triangle)
    • Noise
    • DPCM

  • VRC6

    • Square 2
    • Saw

  • VRC7
    • Channel 1 (dunno which kind)
    • Channel 2
    • Channel 3
    • Channel 4
    • Channel 5
    • Channel 6

  • FDS
    • Channel 1

  • MMC5
    • Square 1
    • Square 2
    • DAC

The first five channels are the only ones available on a normal NES, I believe.

I don't mean to bump a needlessly old topic, but I really must put my two cents in.

1.) I'm very interested in the project, and I dearly hope you're still working on it.

2.) And everyone's done fantastic work with the nsf files. Fantastic work.
