Les Manley: Search for the King (Recorded Audio)

Post by Tawmis » Wed Dec 07, 2016 2:30 am

So I have LES MANLEY: SEARCH FOR THE KING set to play Roland, which it does fine in the game. However, if I capture video using DOSBox, the video comes through but no audio. So I dug around, and found the command:

mixer /listmidi

Which listed:
0 "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth"
1 "MT-32 Synth Emulator"

That led me to this:
https://www.dosbox.com/wiki/Sound#Roland

Type mixer /listmidi to get a list of the midi devices attached to the machine. Locate the USB midi adapter in the list and note the number that it is associated with. Change dosbox.conf's midiconfig = id of MIDI device to the ID of the USB midi device (e.g. midiconfig=0) Once that is done, the MT-32 should operate.

So I went into my DOSBox config file and changed

midiconfig=1

Thinking that should do the magic trick. Same result. Records video, but not audio.

DOSBox shows (when it launches) -
MIDI: win32 selected MT-32 Synth Emulator
MT32: Using 10 chunks, chunk size: 480 frames, buffer size: 4800 frames.
MIDI: Opened device: win32

Anyone have any experience or ideas?

Code: Select all

[midi]
#     mpu401: Type of MPU-401 to emulate.
#             Possible values: intelligent, uart, none.
# mididevice: Device that will receive the MIDI data from MPU-401.
#             Possible values: default, win32, alsa, oss, coreaudio, coremidi, none.
# midiconfig: Special configuration options for the device driver. This is usually the id of the device you want to use.
#               See the README/Manual for more details.

mpu401=intelligent
mididevice=default
midiconfig=1
Changing the option to ADLIB for sound, allows it to record sound (in the video). So it's just the MT-32 that I am having an issue recording video sound.

Try using a Munt enabled build of DOSBox.

Are you talking about a SVN build? If so - got a recommendation that you've used?

I'm fine playing it through a Soundblaster... It's fine. Was just curious why the MT-32 wasn't working.

Just use one from one of the Munt installers - http://sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=3925

So any one of the Munt installer ones would work; even though they're designed for other games?

If you have used any of them just copy the included DOSBox and conf then modify the conf for Les Manley.
