    Finally I can present to you a project I've been working on for the past few years.

    Work began in 2017, and while I wanted to finish by the end of the year I encountered real life problems and had to postpone the release several times. But after all that I finally was able to finish what I started, and I am glad this finally happened.

    Why did I make this? It's simple. I like listening to SMD music during evenings, but I didn't want to keep loads on mp3 files on my disk.
    Of course I can use the games' Sound Tests, but not every game has one, and I wanted all my music to be in one place and I also didn't want to constantly rewrite my flash cart.
    That's why I wanted to make one huge player ROM with all of the music I liked, one I could run basically everywhere on emulators and real hardware.

    As of now the ROM has 81 game soundtracks included. Regrettably I couldn't add all the games I wanted due to file size restrictions. In the future I want to make a second player with all the music I couldn't fit here.

    During the disassembly process I found that several games had unused songs. I am sure I'm not the first person to find these, but I'm surprised to find doesn't have them.
    Here you can find unused songs from Dragon Slayer - Eiyuu Densetsu, Dragon Slayer - Eiyuu Densetsu II, Streets of Rage 3 and Twinkle Tale as well as other games I've possibly missed.

    I don't know if anyone'd be interested in the player, but I would be glad if at least one person would. I would be happy if I knew I wasn't making this just for myself. Thank you! :)

    I tried it and it's really good. But there's a catch. The Socket soundtrack plays wrong drums for some reason or is just me.

    I know that the rom is alpha if I'm not wrong, so Battle Mania Daijin Jou and Socket sounds bad about the drums. Still with bugs I guess.

    Battle Mania Daiginjou and Socket use the same sample bank. This is not a bug. I did it to save space. I like the current version and I won't fix it.

    What is the current version you talking about? It is just not accurate to me.

    What do you mean? I have released the final version. In the future I will continue to work, but I will be adding other drivers and other games.
