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".

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.

Why are people trying to connect with HTTPS? There are no redirects to HTTPS or anything like it. Should work with just HTTP.

Re: The Mysterious King's Quest IV Cover.

Could ask on the Sierra groups that have some of the devs and artists like the Sierra Alum group who did the concept image and if there is a higher res version.

I like tinkering and figuring things out.
Sometimes there is value in being that kid that takes clocks apart to see how they work. Try the installer and tinker with the installation to see how I did it.
