Command-line player of .GYM and .VGM music files for Unixes. These file formats are typically used to store tunes from Sega Megadrive/Genesis and Sega Master System console games. For more information, see SMS Power or Wikipedia.

This program contains very little code of my own, basically I just glued several parts together.


To build, you’ll need Scons, libz, and optionally libao, alsa and sndfile.


Who knows? Might range from GPL to completely undistributable due to the various CPU emulation codes included, and the files originating from the Winamp VGM plugin and Xymms.
