AMPS support

Post by Yamahearted »

Hello SuperJoeBob, I have a request which I know might be difficult for you to do but is it possible for you to add AMPS implementation? This way, it would be easier for people who are making ROMhacks/original games for the Sega Genesis to import their music.
If this becomes a feature then Genny would be one of the best, if not the best tool to import music and the best part is that it would be accessible to tons of more people!
Thank you for reading and have a great day!

I'd love to support this!! VGM is a bloated and gross format and I've often dreamed of getting away from it, even considered writing a sound driver myself. But-- and I can be a bit thick when it comes to things like this- Does AMPS have a song data format spec that it supports, or would GENNY pretty much have to spit out 68K assembly? Either way I'd like to try implementing it, though spitting out usable assembly is liable to be a lot more tricky for me to figure out..
