    Hey there..

    I use GameBase64 a lot, which can launch SID files via an external SID player. You just have to provide the full path to that SID player in the Preferences.

    I have tried SIDPLAY and SIDekick, but neither of these work with GameBase64. Should they work? I'm pretty sure I'm doing things right.. :rolleyes:

    What SID player do you guys use, with GameBase64??

    Thanks a million!

    BUMP..

    I still can't work out how to play SID in GameBase64. :confused: I have SIDPLAY v3.4.1 which, after what I have read somewhere on the net, is fully compatible with GB64 for Mac. I have given the correct path in GB64 preferences. I also have the complete SID collection, which resides in a directory called SID in the root of the GameBase64 path. But when I press the Play button in GB64 to play a SID, nothing happens. SIDPLAY is not even starting up.. The games themselves launch just fine with Power64.

    Can someone help me out, please? :(

    seems no one knows what a SID is...i dont.

    seems more like questions the maker of the program could answer.

    Yeah, maybe not many people know this. I just thought that, the people who knew what it was might read the post, and the people who did not know it, would skip the post. Anyway, a SID file is the music format of the old Commodore 64 home computer from the 1980's. Now you know. ;)

    GameBase64 is a complete database of every C64 game ever released. You can launch the games, see cover art, see screenshots and even listen to the music from the games, directly from the database. It's neat, if you like this kind of stuff.

    Possibly. Maybe I should try that. Thanks.

    It just seems funny that maybe no one knows this. At least some Mac owners in here must be old C64 fans.. :) Of course, that doesn't mean they know exactly this.
