tfh post it in the WebMSX thread? Maybe emulation is incomplete, I assume it relies on correct deform/test register behaviour for timing.

I will check in the WebMSX thread Smile

Web msx could have problems emulating two SCC chips in the two slots
All it is needed is that the voice ROM has its own SCC chip
Only periods and volumes are used.
One waveform emulating a tone is preset and never changed.

You could very well be right. I will ask the author of WebMSX about it Smile
Right now I use the current setup:

* Slot 1: Your voice ROM
* Slot 2: The original Salamander ROM

I have made a post in the WebMSX thread already, so... we will see what causes this :)

The problem in WebMSX is that its loading the Voice ROM as a "Normal" cartridge, not SCC. I don't remember why I put this limitation, but it only accepts ROMs as SCC if they are >= 32KB.
Since that ROM is 16KB, it reverts to the Normal format.

Fixing that.
In what parts of the game should it sound different? I would like to know so I can test before releasing the fix.

Well, I hear some voices, so I guess its working... :-)
But in my tests, it only activates the voices if the voice cart is in Slot 1, and game is is Slot 2.

Generating new release right now, I'll let you know when its ready.

I have modified the Salamander ROM and included the new voices rutine inside the ROM.
Now, at boot, it searchs any other SCC and use it for the voices. If it doesn't found other SCC the game works without voices.

I have created two patches, one with normal game, and other with FRS patch included:

Salamander Voices and normal game IPS Patch
Salamander Voices and FRS patch IPS Patch

Use this ROM:
SHA-1
0d459788b6c464b50cbc2436e67a2cef248e0c4a Salamander (1987) (Konami) (J).rom

Remember:

◾Original Voice set from the Arcade. 1P, 2P or exchange mode [Default]
◾Female voice Set from Gradius Gaiden. Dual Play. [Press CTRL during boot]
◾Male voice Set from Gradius Gaiden. Dual Play. [Press CTRL+Shift during boot]

Thanks! How difficult is it to create such a patch / how did you manage to create this one?
The totally awesome option would be to extend the XPC patch to include the option to add the voices.. Wink But that may be not that easy to do perhaps.
