Any simple way to convert NES/GameBoy frequency to FDS/N163 ? Seems obvious to add GameBoy WAV using these. Moved Castle/Kirby here.

Really only look-up tables. Otherwise you have to do division to convert between "period" and "velocity" notation.

(Mildly off-topic: I discovered a new method used by ICs to specify pitch in a sound generator. I'd seen "specify period" (NES, VRC6, VIC-20, GB, WS, AY-3-8910 and derivatives, SN76489 and derivatives), "specify velocity" (FDS, 163, SID, SPC700) and "specify velocity in floating point" (all of Yamaha's FM synthesizers). But I hadn't previously seen "specify period in floating point": SAA1099.)

Personally, I'm not interested in this, since none of these songs can be inserted into the game in any way, due to the huge size of the data.

Snowman small enough :) Even uses normal 6502 ASM (ASM6) and not my wacky macroinferno.

Damn! Others were just simple shifts and XORs. Oh well ...

So does it make sense to wait for converted music with an adequate size?

Sense it makes none. Enormous VGMs needs to be.

There might be some merit in looking into LZSA ... but I don't know of a decompressor that can stream instead of decompress a block at a time.
(edit: If I do the stupidest thing and break the VGM into 256b blocks, and compress them independently, I get roughly 50% compression on "Batman GB-Gotham City_frame.vgm")

Hello nin-kuuku, Nice VGM2NSF tool, it's cool, except for problems with Psycho Fox's "Lose a Life" and "Game Over" songs don't work, Can you fix this?

Thanks. The problem is the sometimes buggy "auto bass detector" that is on by default. The songs work if you set the triangle manually with "triangle_psg" setting. See example.
