MBFM Voice Manager

by wolf_ on 20-11-2003, 00:10
Topic: Development

In the past few days Wolf made a small utility that lets you insert your own FM voices in the default voicelist of MBFM. This is very handy since the default voicelist has stoneage voices (remember FAC soundtracker?), and most of them aren't really useful anyway. This (PC-) util is Public Domain, so enjoy!

requirements: Windows 9x or higher, a 1024x768 minimum resolution and a mouse

AcaBoom is very simple game written in BASIC. It runs on every MSX with at least 32KB (compatibility with 16KB MSX has not been tested, but will probably work). The aim of the game: you have to "explode" all the cells in the minimum amount of moves. If you perform a good record, submit it to Andrea, so others can try and beat it!

The game and its instructions are in English.
