Something I've been working on the past couple days.
K054539 + dink's echofx(-izer) v.00001
basically: I made a delay line using a circular buffer w/ 2 biquad filters (1HP, 1LP): HP tapped onto the delay input and LP tapped onto the output + a buffer feedback tap coming back from the LP's output.

Xmen "Go and save the city."
this + the "Low Pass Filter" option under audio -> plugin opts. sounds almost exactly like the pcb.
Here's what it sounds like without the "Low Pass Filter", though.

best regards,

K054539 w/Echo FX is on git, enjoy :)
Games like "Violent Storm, Monster Maulers, Moo Mesa, X-Men, G.I. Joe, etc" benefit from this.

Again, with really limited time for testing, I think this sounds awesome :)

Howz it going just been busy lately and all, but yeah i managed to check the latest k054539 fix and the echo effects sound bang on, great job, but the hydraulic sound effect is still low in xmen?? the one i mentioned about earlier, sounds better on mame though..!! Could be something to do with the YM2151 sound chip and maybe needing some reworking on? i'm just spitballing here - regards  :confused:

the_maq, hey thanks for checking it out!
The option under Audio -> Plugin Options -> Use Lowpass Filter attempts to emulate the filters in the 2x amplifier stages that most pcb's have.  Enable this and the lift section sounds almost identical to the pcb video link you posted.

I downloaded this build from github:



The problem is that the emulator exe does not show me any icon:



I don't know if it's a mistake or something, but the emulator opens and loads perfectly.

I use the XP version.

Pelucon8, I see the problem - the new icon is 256x256, but XP doesn't support this (XP does 128x128 max, I think).  I'll try to find a solution!

Actually, the last buid I downloaded was from July or so, it had the old icon and looked good, now I download a new build and it looks blank.

I had no idea they had changed the icon, hehehe.

Edit: I see you edited your post, the truth is not something that really bothers me, but I would appreciate very much if you give us a solution to XP users.

Thanks, my friend.

  • All games deserve to be emulated, more or less! :P

The K054539 was a very impressive PCM audio chip for the arcade cabinets of early 90s... and now also the echo effect is emulated by FBN... great work! :)

Some "behind the scenes" fixes & additions:
big thanks to stoo(adelpha) for reporting a metric ton of good bug reports :)
the_maq, Agozer, for bug nice reports as well
Gab75 for extra special testing
