       (1) This	chip can be emulated via OPL Hardware (like Soundblaster sound
       cards).

       (2) OPL hardware	emulation is  available,  but  software	 emulation  is
       prefered.  Hardware  emulation  is  used	 if  another chip activates HW
       emulation or FMForce is True.   (3)  You	 need  a  sample  ROM,	called
       yrw801.rom,  to	make  playback	work.  Place it	in the directory where
       vgmplay lies or in /usr/local/share/vgmplay/.

       OPL hardware emulation can be enabled by	setting	the "FMPort"-entry  in
       the  ini-file.	Under  Linux  the  program  must be run	as root	to use
       hardware	FM.

       It's possible to	write Wave files by editing the	"LogSound"-line	in the
       ini-file.   Batch  conversions  are possible by opening a playlist.  FM
       hardware	cannot be logged to Wave files.

CONFIGURATION
       vgmplay is configured in	the file vgmplay.ini, which should be  located
       in	 $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/vgmplay	 (thus,	      by       default
       ~/.config/vgmplay/vgmplay.ini).	     A	    sample	 configuration
       /usr/local/share/examples/vgmplay/vgmplay.ini  is available for copying
       and general reference.

BUGS
       PauseEmulation is disabled under	Linux if no FM Hardware	is used.

       You have	to double-tap ESC to quit the program.

       Sometimes MAME's	sound cores tend to sound strange.

COMMENTS
       The T6W28 doesn't use MAME's T6W28 core.	Instead	the  SN76496  core  is
       modified	 to  emulate  the T6W28	with 2 SN76496 chips.  The SN76496 OPL
       emulation is okay, but it's impossible to get the noise sound right.

       EMU2413 Emulator	was added, because sometimes the one  of  MAME	sounds
       strange.	  The  Gens  YM2612  core was added for	the same reason	before
       MAME's YM2612 core was fixed.

AUTHORS
       This program was	written	by Valley Bell.

       Almost all software emulators are from MAME (http://mamedev.org)

       EMU2413 and Gens	YM2612 were ported from	Maxim's	in_vgm

       The YMF278B core	was ported from	openMSX

       zlib compression	by Jean-loup Gailly and	Mark Adler is used

       All custom OPL Mappers were written using MAME software	emulators  and
       the OPL2/3 programming guides by	Jeffrey	S. Lee and Vladimir Arnost

       one YM2413 OPL Mapper was ported	from MEKA.

       The RF5C164 and PWM cores were ported from Gens/GS

       The  MAME  YM2612  core was fixed with the help of Blargg's MAME	YM2612
       fix and Genesis Plus GX'	YM2612 core

       AdLibEmu	(OPL2 and OPL3 core) was ported	from DOSBox

       The default HuC6280 core	is from	Ootake.

       EMU2149,	the alternative	NES APU	core and the NES FDS core were	ported
       from rainwarrior's NSFPlay.
