Let's make a list, guys!
Features to add to VDMS:
waveIn - perhaps there was a DOS sound recording utility? (surely)
Other Adlib plugins:
1. Create a different MAME-based Adlib plugin that is based on Ken Silverman's emulation.
2. Create a different MAME-based Adlib plugin that is based on Carl-Henrik Skarstedt's emulation.
(no particular reason, MAME's is better than both, just for variety I suppose)
3. Create a different MAME-based Adlib plugin that combines MAME's old emulation with the new one - adding sample support for YM3812 drumset. 😀
4. Add a feature that used to be in MAME - ym3812opl
-ym3812opl/-noym3812opl (default: -ym3812opl)
Uses the SoundBlaster OPL chip for music emulation of the YM3812 chip. This is faster, and is reasonably accurate, since the chips are 100% compatible. There is no control on the volume, however, and you need a real OPL chip for it to work (If you are using an SB-compatible card that emulates the OPL in software, the built-in digital emulation will probably sound better). On NT4.0, you will need to install mameopl.sys for the -ym3812opl option.
This would be similar to a feature that SoundFX 2000 has to use the on-card chip.
I can get you the MAME source mentioned if you want it, Vlad... if you don't have it already...
Anything else we're waiting for? (Please keep your suggestions to the scale that mine are at, not like "MAKE all DOS games work with sound d00dz! SBLive emu all da way!!!")
