YMEngine is a set of Pascal sources that allows you to add the Ay_Emul's YM2149F emulation into your own programs. If Ay_Emul sources are too hard for your understanding, this kit made by the YMEngine's author, Sledge Hammer of Grinder, is just the thing for you. Two demos and two games are available below as examples of YM-Engine usage. Martin Andersson has adapted YMEngine for SDL, buildable for Linux and other platforms, also available here.

Attention! All the YMEngine packages described are based on old versions of Ay_Emul, which means that some YM5 and YM6 files are not played quite correctly. Also, there are some arguable decisions in the Windows Delphi version of YMEngine's WaveOut wrapper, inherited from an obsolete version of Ay_Emul. As such, I would like to direct any questions you may have about YMEngine to their authors first.

SquareTone is a Linux port of Ay_Emul v2.7 beta 3. It contains a simple console player named "SimplePlayer", as well as a plugin for the popular XMMS player. This version can only playback .YM and .PT3 formats. All sources and instructions are included. You can use Free Pascal to build this project yourself.

The player is platform-independent thanks to SDL, and is based on Ay_Emul 2.7 beta 3 (without the bugs of the previous AY_Emul versions). Created by Martin Andersson. Should any questions arise when using it, please refer to Martin Andersson first.
