Thanks for the heads up Targhan.

I will wait for your release in 2 weeks and minimalist player, and see if I can have a crack at it. Will you release the documented asm code for this new player?

You don't have to wait for the Minimalist player, you can already check the Lightweight player and see if you understand anything. The Minimalist player will be about the same complexity. Check the AT2 package, all the documented Z80 sources are inside, as well as the definition of the formats.

So apparently xpmck is a compiler for MML musics?

I've actually never heard of MML before, I'm not quite sure what it is :D

(Regarding a native 6502 player for YM/AY chips, any work done could probably also be helping the other 8Bit guy, the one building the Commander X16, which apparently will use a 65816 and a dual YM chip, ... and of course the Oric Exos, with a 6502 and four YM chips, so this person would probably become a highly praised new Oric hero of the retro community :D)
