I have made my own online SID player. It uses Jürgen Wothke's WebSid emulator and can also play digi tunes. You can browse all of HVSC #68 with it.

Check out my blog post for more information:

Quote: yes, we have 50k tunes which are mostly crap, that's why I'm interested in what other people listen to so I can find "new" tunes. I'm not too much into top100 tunes kind of stats, more like stuff I haven't found out yet myself.

Also adding "genre" tag into hvsc would be nice, but its not deepsid's mission :)

In that case I think you might find the various "Favourites" folders in the root interesting. It's public playlists created by other DeepSID users with their personal list of favourite tunes. I've found a few surprises in those for sure.

I've also thought about a genre tag, but adding that would probably mean having to go through all tunes one by one. That's a big nope on my own part, but perhaps it could become something that all users can participate in building up.

I've even thought about not just general music genres (jazz, rock, disco, etc.) but also C64-specific genres. Beep, pre-Hubbard, new age deep filter sound stuff, and so on. That could be cool to have too for filter purposes. It could be nice if names for those kind of genres could be a collaborate effort from everyone interested in this.

Other than that, I have actually added a new feature yesterday that may also help with the former. Inside each letter folder in MUSICIANS, the sorting drop-down box is now a filter instead. If you change this to "Decent", it filters out all the worst apples. While this is not anywhere near as monumental a task to do as the genre thing, it still takes some time to do. I've only completed 0-9, A, B, L and Q for now. This is based on my own assessments where I've tried to be fair and listened to at least half a dozen tunes or so in each folder before making a final judgment. Of course it's open for changes if you think someone should be included or another one is too bad to be there. It's also possible I might just change it later to "JCH recommends" instead with various star options. Not sure about the future of this yet.

This has now been implemented.

Btw, that URL doesn't work.

Hi JCH, found a problem while trying to listen to /GAMES/S-Z/Who_Dares_Wins.sid

It plays about 1 seconds then the page goes blank seems to try to load something from GB64 and then enter an endless loop.

From Firefox console this line repeats endlessly:
TypeError: window.player is undefined scriptprocessor_player.js:25:6

Really interesting. Looks like a case for the WebSid emulator programmer.

I'll relay it ASAP, thanks.

Turns out it was not the fault of the WebSid programmer. It was because one of the GameBase64 entries had no screenshots at all. I forgot to check for that, but it does now.
