Sonic & Knuckles Collection SMPS Player

By S&KC SMPS Team


This mod replaces Sonic & Knuckles Collection's MIDI-based music system with one that emulates the SMPS sound driver from the Megadrive version.

Features:
* SMPS playback using ValleyBell's core with better-than-MD quality.
* Restores Sonic 3's midboss music when playing Sonic 3 mode.
* Restores fadeouts when appropriate.
* Includes SMPS versions of PC-only tracks and tracks from prototypes.
* Can be used together with the HQ music mod and the original MIDI music.
* Can be configured to use FM drums.
* NEW for the contest: Sonic 3D Blast music!

Installation:
Simply extract the 7z archive to the folder where Sonic & Knuckles Collection is installed, then there are three options depending on how you want to set it up:
* To have the SMPS player as the default with the MIDI player as a fallback, rename the original MIDIOUT.DLL to MIDIOUTY.DLL, then rename SMPSOUT.DLL to MIDIOUT.DLL.
* To have the SMPS player as the default with the HQ music mod as a fallback, rename the original MIDIOUT.DLL to MIDIOUTX.DLL, rename the HQ music DLL to MIDIOUTY.DLL, then rename SMPSOUT.DLL to MIDIOUT.DLL.
* To have the HQ music mod as the default with the SMPS player as a fallback, rename the original MIDIOUT.DLL to MIDIOUTY.DLL, rename SMPSOUT.DLL to MIDIOUTX.DLL, then rename the HQ music DLL to MIDIOUT.DLL.

Configuration:
By creating and editing an 'SMPSOUT.ini' file or using the 'SMPSCFG.exe' program included, you can change which tracks the game plays on a per-game basis or globally. Per-game settings other than "Default" will override the global settings.
* A setting of "MIDI" on any track will cause the game to play music using either the original MIDI player or the HQ music mod, depending on how it was installed.
* Tracks with options other than "Default" and "MIDI" will also have a "Random" option, which will cause the game to randomly select one of the additional options every time the track is played.
* If you add the line "FMDrums=True" to 'SMPSOUT.ini' and set Sonic & Knuckles Collection's BGM mode to "FM Synthesizer", the music will be played using FM drums rather than drum samples.
