Chipnsfx is a music software suite with focus on a lightweight code and data written by CNGSoft. The player routine is under 950 bytes long and can be as small as 550 bytes. Like all newer software the softwore focus more than one system, so you can produce music for the Amstrad CPC, Sinclair Spectrum 128 and the MSX1. Other platforms can be supported by minor changes on the player routine (e.g. the Sega Master System). The tracker was already used in several CNGSoft productions like Bubble Bobble for CPC, Hire Hare, Frogalot, etc.

You can download the latest version from CNGSofts Chipnsfx website.

CNGSoft released his long awaited remake of the game Bubble Bobble. Finally, the CPC gets a version of this great, which it deserves. Compared to the original CPC port of Bubble Bobble, it features very colourful graphics, the intro sequence and bigger sprites. To sum it up: it is much closer to the original arcade version. Be sure to download and test it. You can get the game from CNGSofts homepage (click on the image).

CNGSoft released a new version of his CPC emulator for DOS, DPMI and Windows called CPCE. This emulator is written in 100% assembly. You can download the newest version from the CPCE homepage.

Here are the changes:

  • New autorun engine: feed it a file and go.
  • New tape engine with 16-bit precision rather than the old 8-bit: recording a CSW and then playing it back output the same sound.
  • Fixed a potential buffer overflow in the ZIP file handler.
  • Added support for UNRAR.DLL. Oh, and CPCE.TXT is 1010 lines long, too.
