Okay, I know I emailed you about my problem/request already, but I figured I'd put it up on this forum topic for others to get some ideas for uses of this plugin.

I have hundreds of songs that take up less than 1k. As such, they are actually wasting space, since the allocation tables aren't small enough to accomodate such a small file. If I was able to store all of these songs into 1 archived file, then drive space could be saved. The other problem is that, to get these files to play, 2 files must be loaded. 1 is the song (it's actually a re-direction thingy), and the other is the song data. For those of you familiar with PSF, USF, or GSF, then you'd know what I'm talking about as the *.xSFLIB files for *.MINIxSF files. Currently, the in_zip plugin can't play those files because the *.xSFLIB file is not found. Is it possible to get in_zip to load these extra files, so that *.MINIxSF songs can play?

DrO: Feel free to answer this, or the email I sent, but please don't waste your time answering on both, unless there was something I asked in the email that wasn't addressed here.

For files to experiment with, go to http://www.zophar.net/psf/ for Playstation Sound Files, http://www.zophar.net/usf for Ultra (64) Sound Files, or http://www.zophar.net/gsf/ for Gameboy Advance Sound Files. The input plugins for these can be found by following links at the bottom of the above links I mentioned.

I hope that can help improve the functionality and development of this awesome plugin. Thanks again! Mouser X over and out.

[EDIT] It doesn't seem to load the next song in the list when the currently playing archived file is done playing. Perhaps that is a limitation of the format I have compressed?
