Started with just the files that I had tried but added some more in various more common formats from different sites, so that you can test and refer to them later as needed. Some have multiple subsongs within each file (certain .nsf and .gbs files for instance). Wasn't sure if it supports minipsf/2 or miniusf (all usf rips are miniusf+usflib, many psf rips are minipsf+psflib, and relatively fewer psf2 rips are minipsf2+psf2lib), so I added those in too. I was able to confirm all play correctly in XMPlay except for possibly the .gym files (didn't have the plugin for those), but .gym has been obsoleted by .vgm and are harder to find nowadays.

I played a random selection of those linked tracks without issue. Make sure basszxtune.dll is in the same folder as MusicBee.exe. Also check you have the C runtime installed (eg. MSVCRT.DLL in your windows system32 folder)

I have msvcrt.dll in system32, have MSVC++ Redistributables installed, basszxtune.dll is in the same folder as MusicBee.exe, tried using the installer instead of portable, tried just the .dll on its own and then including the 3.3 patch (not sure if supposed to use or outdated) on the latest version, it still doesn't work. Streamed music still plays fine.

Hi Steven, I'm having exactly the same problem as metroandroid - none of the filetypes are recognized.
I have the portable version installed with basszxtune.dll in its root directory, and C runtimes are installed.. same error as above.
Tested with .sid and .pt3 files.
Also I noticed there is no reference to these filetypes in configuration.xml

A similar situation here.
This is the first time I'm trying to play chiptunes in MusicBee, I'm using the latest version along with basszxtune v2.4.9 (win-x86_64), some chiptune formats work, others don't.
For example, XM files play fine but SID do not, says the file format is unsupported or corrupted.

Here's an example: http://www.mediafire.com/file/0funvo5pefd8s07/The_Beatles_Hey_Jude.sid/file

XM, mod, it, s3m and a few others were already supported in the base build, only the filetypes associated with basszxtune.dll aren't working.
