Re: Hunter Hunted - Installation issues

There are a number of files missing in the installed directory. Hunter.INI is needed to start the game. Do a clean full install from your CD.

Re: Island of Doctor Brain (Dr. Brain) Music

At least Munt is damned close to the real thing. I have a real MT-32 and there is so little difference that I rarely use. I don't want it to get burnt up.

Re: King's Quest VI Music.

Robert Holmes comes close for me, but he did friend me and I have some regular interaction with him. Turns out we have very similar tastes in music.

Re: King's Quest VI Music.

One of my favorite Sierra soundtracks. There are a number of tracks that are indelibly etched into my brain. A true master piece by Cris Braymen. He is one of the few Sierra composers that never accepted my friend request. But then, I think that he avoids the Sierra stuff for the most part.

Wasn't GM only available for KQ5 under Windows? None of the versions I have ever seen shipped with a DOS GM driver.

MT and GM to MP3.
Again, Iceman (SCI0) has no GM track. This is what the setup will show if it supports GM. You would use this GM driver for Sound Canvas as well. The top one is obviously Roland, but the rest are hardware specific drivers.

The first Sound Canvas, the SC-55 came out in 1991, so we are talking somewhere about the SCI1.1 era for the first SC/GM games. Perhaps MI knows the first Sierra GM game. INSTALL will call it "General MIDI Sound Driver".

Re: Colonel's Bequest - the GM vs MT Sounds (Converted to MP3 for the video)

You are right. Even KQ5 (SCI1 vs SCI0) did not. Perhaps with RAVI's drivers you could simulate it, but it would sound bad. The soundtrack was written for MT-32.
