Re: Real MT32, not being 'programmed' - using default sounds

Actually it wouldn't have mattered much if I kept the German lines as some time ago I had a harddrive crash and lost everything, including everything related to this patch. And a bunch of other stuff, such as plenty of Youtube videos I had recorded, etc... still kicking myself for not making backups...

Re: GREY MATTER update! (Sort of relates to Gabriel Knight t

I should also mention that at least the North American release comes with no DRM and can be played without the DVD. I would like to encourage anyone who has been curious about this game to buy it. I think it is important that publishers see that Adventures can be profitable and that not including d...

Re: Real MT32, not being 'programmed' - using default sounds

Oh, I see.... cool. I was for whatever reason under the impression that you didn't feel it had been tested well enough, probably by reading an older post of yours, related to changes you'd made to the patch that I was unaware of... where I seemingly forgot to check the date on your posts and I guess...

Re: Real MT32, not being 'programmed' - using default sounds

Ah I see, so it's a while since you last updated it... I didn't notice the date when reading about your updates, but the most recent changes I had in mind was how you hex edited the game to replace certain Spanish lines into English and such... getting rid of the last signs this patch is based on a ...

Re: Real MT32, not being 'programmed' - using default sounds

I've actually done that already, and it only lists the crappy default Windows one, and the two I get from using this MIDI-USB cable. I'm strongly suspecting the cable itself to be the issue now, after reading that thread... so to save myself (and you people trying to help) potentially unnecessary tr...

Re: Real MT32, not being 'programmed' - using default sounds

Thanks for your replies! I'll clarify something, I wasn't being specific enough regarding some aspects - about the MT32 display.. it does not show any activity while loading games, but once the game is running, it blinks away as the music is being played... only with the standard MT32 sounds, which ...

Real MT32, not being 'programmed' - using default sounds

So I finally got the cables and all for my MT32, but I have a problem in that when I start a game, I get no messages on the MT32 display panel and the games use the default MT32 sounds instead, which sounds terrible. I'm using Vista 64, and the MIDI-USB cable I'm using was recommended for use with t...
