I looked at the Nestopia .tp file format today. It turns out they're just a headerless unsigned 8-bit PCM wave file with a 32000 Hz sampling rate. You can do an "Import Raw Data" in Audacity (settings here
) and save it as a wav file. Hook up an audio cable from your PC to the FB keyboard and you can load it up on the real hardware. Conversion works in the other direction, too.
So, you mean using Audacity, i can take a .wav recording of a famicom tape (such as the wrap.wav file you sent me earlier [space ship moving around and shooting]), and save it as a .tp?
I have opened the wrap.wav file with Audacity, and told it to export [from file > export]. It gives me a save dialog box, and choose to name it test.tp . Before clicking save, i clicked the 'options...' box in the corner, and set the options as header: RAW (header-less) , encoding: Unsigned 8-bit PCM , then clicked ok, and clicked save.
It gives me a warning: "you are about to save a LIBSNDFILE file with the name "test.tp"
Normally these files end in ".raw" , and some programs will not open files with nonstandard extensions.
Are you sure you want to save the file under this name?" , and i click yes. It brings up the Edit Metadata box, i leave everything blank, and click ok.
The file test.tp is then written, and when i attempt to load from this .tp image, it simply runs to the end of the tape with out loading anything.
Could you please explain how to convert from .wav to .tp?
