<< Index | Logging >>
- First of all, you need a Mega Drive\Genesis emulator that
supports VGM logging. So far, only Kega Fusion for PC can log VGM files
correctly (Gens has timing issues, so it should not be used).
Sadly, there isn't any accurate emus for *nix/Mac that can do this yet.
Download Kega Fusion.
- You will need Winamp full version, which includes the disk writer
plugin, in order to create the wave files from the VGMs. Download
- You will also need the Winamp plugin to play VGMs. Download
the VGM Plugin.
- You will need the latest VGM Tool in order to trim and tag files.
Download VGM Tool.
- You will need a sound editor in order to find trim and loop
points. Two popular ones are GoldWave (shareware) and Audacity
(freeware). This tutorial will use GoldWave on its examples, but things
should work about the same with any other program.
- In order to properly optimise files, you will need to have OptVGM.
This is the last thing you'll ever do with the VGM files, so you might
