MB does not read tags for these files even if they exist, so this is the expected behavior

That's understandable. I think it should fall back to the filename if there are no tags available for the format in question, as it completely breaks the song list, as you can see in this screenshot:

The right box (window) falls back to filename, so shouldn't the main interface's title section fall back to that also?
Keep up the great work.

EDIT: Never-mind, you have an option to update the tags via the filename, which works a treat! It even grabbed the album art from the folder too.

Awesome ;)

i confirm .VGZ does play and its now included. There is a bug when skip silence from the player preferences panel is enabled so I have disabled that functionality for these files

unzip and replace the existing musicbee application files

Much improved! This version lets me import the vgz files and play them. There is however one little bug.

In the music tab, the imported vgz file shows no name, album, time etc in the main (biggest) window. It does however show correctly in the window on the right hand side of the main one.

I'm not at my computer currently to get a screenshot, so I hope that explanation makes sense. I'm using the default theme and have not changed any settings.

Thanks for the quick fix!

VGZ is not listed as a supported format - see the earlier post for the list of formats. VGM is so if you have problems with that format then can you send me a VGM file

It's an oversight on the bassxtune developers part. I have my own music player developed in C# that uses and bassxtune and I am listening to it playing that exact vgz file I posted above right now.

It's just a compressed version of a vgm file. I can assure you that bassxtune supports it.

If you don't believe me, that's fine. If you don't wish to include support for it (despite the library supporting it), I guess i'll just have to continue developing my own music player. That's the worst option, as I'd rather use MusicBee, but it's not up to me :)

Thank you

try updating to v3.1 from the first forum topic if you are not already using it.
If it still doesnt play, can you PM me a link to one of the VGM files

Hey Stephen.

I downloaded the latest musicbee beta and copied the chiptunes dll to the same location as the musicbee exe file. Musicbee refuses to even see vgz files (which the chiptunes library supports) when trying to import music manually or via the scanning options.

The config xml file also does not even list vgm/vgz files. Is this intentional?

I've attached a vgz file for you to test. I can play this in my own music player which uses the same library as you (, so I know it's supported.

Thank you

Hello Steven.

I simply cannot get chiptunes working in Musicbee at all.

I followed your instructions to the letter, and I can't even import vgm files for instance, let alone play them. If I modify Config to add the file type, I can import the files.

They always fail to play and an error box pops up.

Are the steps really as simple as you state in your original post?

Thank you
