NDS Music Player v1.0 (NDS Application)

KazoWAR updated “NDS Music Player”. It’s based on fincs’ SSEQ Player and allows to play music tracks from commercial games with a GUI browser pointing at the desired ROM file.

Release notes:

OK I released version 1.0. It should be a lot less buggy, but still not perfect. I used Team Fails idea and made a .sps file that is a shortcut file that is generated on your computer using SPS Maker.

I pretty much removed .nds loading and my file browser. It is now locked to /data/NDS Music Player/ and shows the list of .sps files. The files uses the games title name, example “POKEMON B.sps”.

This version prints stuff to the screen at each little step, in case of a freeze try to tell me what you where doing and the last line on the screen.

Also there is a little bug I am trying to work out where my string for the nds path is corrupted. If you get something like this, pressing B and trying to open the sps file again seems to solve it.

NDS Music Player (Alpha) (NDS Application)

KazoWAR releases “NDS Music Player” in a public alpha version. It’s based on fincs’ SSEQ Player and allows to play music tracks from commercial games, while pointing at it’s ROM.

Here is more of the original message:

I added a file browser that is most likely still buggy. Browse your cart for a NDS game that uses SSEQ music. Press A to open and then it will read the SDAT data and build a list of all SSEQs in the SDAT. Browse for the SEEQ to play and press A. This is Alpha software and has not been tested for bugs. I am just excited I got it to actually play the music off the ROMs.

Without Escape v1.2 (NDS Game)

Without Escape by PacoChan is a point & click adventure inspired in Resident Evil and Silent Hill, although there are no monsters. The main objective is to escape from your house since it’s happening a lot of weird things. The game is only in Spanish for now, but it has multi-language support. It would be nice if someone could do an English translation.
