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

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.

DPX: Sure you can see your own eyes move! Just tilt your head in front of the mirror. No, you can't. You might THINK you're seeing your eyes move, but you can't. You're seeing your eyes in one spot and then the next spot, but that's not the same thing as seeing your eyes actually move. Not unlike a...

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.

Re: Forum access error under Firefox 91.0.1 & 91.0.2

I believe what's causing my issue for my sites and that error is my firewall (ESET). Why not just use the Windows firewall? It seems to be pretty good. It catches new programs trying to access the internet the very first time and asks you if you want to give it permission. and never bothers you aga...
