Ok guys... Let's start with a teaser pic:
I finally won my lazyness and I began to work on xm3smps, which is a crappy name for xm2smps's sequel. If you don't know what xm2smps is, read here or here.
As I post this new topic, xm3smps is almost ready, I already have a working build which can successfully convert XM files. I'm not releasing it now of course, I want to take a few more days to test it more, but I would be lying if I say that you won't get it until 2008, it's a matter of days, really :P
This VB port was long overdue, several people was asking for a better interface... and even if this goes against my original idea of an user-unfriendly converter I decided to do that.
It is completely based on xm2smps's code, so the base features are exactly the same of the previous incarnation.
However, I'm adding several nice features, like a much better voice manager (which allows you to import ymx files and extract voices from Sonic 1 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles songs), and the chance to output songs to asm files.
The credits from the old version of course stand: in alphabetical order, Puto, R. Solaris, Tweaker. As I said, xm3smps is completely based upon xm2smps, so it's just fair to thank them again.
As for the development of the new version, Puto gets a special mention because he really helped me.
Now, opinion plz.
