Croissants are Good for your smile !
Recently Zophar's domain have updated all its music library (2sf usf psf gsf ...)
All zip have been replaced with 7z archive. It should not be a problem for SnesMusic as 7z is already supported but ...
7z was only supported for a few system like SNES. All others could be imported as 7z but not played.
So after a few people noticed it and reported the problem I made an update to fix this.
7z have good compression but is veeeeeeeery long to decompress when you compare with zip. So I added a recompression step to zip when a 7z file is added in the app.
During the development of the fix I updated the 7z decompression library in order to decrease loading time when playing a file. But I forgot to clean the previous build ... So it worked on my phone during dev but when I generated the official release Xcode made a clean and rebuild all and 7z decompression was broken... I discovered this when the release have been available on the store.
I'm sending a new update tonight to fix this and I hope that this release will work because I'm going for 3 weeks in Japan.=(^o^)=
9 month of work on my free time were needed to add support for usf/miniusf files. It was a huge work as no cross platform library exist to do that. Only "64th note" winamp plugin sources were available, basically a hack of project 64 made for window, all existing set of usf music were meant to be played with 64th note. I think I managed to reproduce 64th note behaviour. Song length is used when available otherwise 2min30 is used. A special case is made for one of my favourite song in Conker's bad fur day : The Great Mighty Poo Song : track 42 ! Voice actor was just awesome and the song last 4 minutes.
A fast device is required : at least iPhone 5 , iPod 5 or iPad 3 and even with that some music won't play because of lack of cpu speed (Mario Golf, ....). It could be optimised but Apple does not allow to run recompiled code on the fly.
If everything goes well with apple validation, the update should be available in a couple of day for Nesmusic and next week for SnesMusic and PsxMusic
PS: Banjo Tooie set of music that can be found around internet is an old version, I asked Zophar Domain to update their file. No answer for the moment... I will try to post the correct one
From November to March 2013 I was porting the IOS game of the year 2012 Rayman Jungle Run to Windows 8, Winrt and Windows phone 8
It's a really good game for mobile device with fantastic graphics
I made the Windows 8 layer of Pastagames' framework and a few modifications where added to support Windows phone 8.
I was a bit scared of Directx as an OpenGL developer but both are very similar and everything went smoothly thanks to the modularity of Pastagames' framework.
It was a great experience to work with big company like Ubisoft and Microsoft to integrate xbox live achievement and leaderboard.
I also met great people like Fabien Delpiano and the whole Pastagames team. Thank you all.

New version is out , but before updating make a backup of all your music files with itunes, I just found that this update will remove all previously installed music files but a little too late.
I thought it was fixed but I forget a little hidden line of code... At least this is fixed for futur update...
However I hope you will enjoy this version ;)
