Yamaha Overdrive (Beta) / New update!

Postby cubebert » Wed Aug 19, 2020 4:59 pm


So after a month of debugging and procrastination, I'm presenting my first mod for ZDoom: Yamaha Overdrive. As someone who enjoys synthesized music over the sampled audio that the SNES has and with there already being SNES music randomizers, I wanted to try my hand out at making a Sega Mega Drive jukebox. Using the framework of Kinsie's Floppy Disk (with his permission, of course), I've put over a thousand tracks into the randomizer; most of them are from Mega Drive games, but there are a couple of Master System titles in there. Yamaha Overdrive targets Zandronum, but there are a couple of GZDoom-exclusive features in there such as randomized intermission music. The mod works best with vanilla or Boom mapsets; even ZDoom maps that don't use ACS to change songs can work.

This is only a beta release because I wanted to know from the community what other songs I can put in there. Let me know in the thread about any suggestions, bugs, or comments you have, especially bugs like songs not playing (for those, let me know what source port you're using and what song info pops up in-game). There were also a couple of features that I couldn't implement because I'm not familiar enough with the ZScript language to code them; I'll be more than grateful to have help with getting them implemented and ready. I've already made a thread about it last month, but I'll summarize the requests on the bottom of the page.

Hey everyone, I've updated Yamaha Overdrive and added quite a bit of stuff. Right now, I'm interested in hearing about possible suggestions for Master System titles; there are some technical guidelines, however. Because of how GZDoom and Zandronum handle VGM files, only Master System songs that utilize the Sega PSG chip or the Yamaha YM2612 can be added into the playlist. I think some Master System games use different sound chips, but they aren't supported by either source ports. Let me know which games you want to add to Yamaha Overdrive, Master System or Mega Drive, and I'll try to fit them in if possible.

Changelog:
