SubjectPlaying Larry 6 properly, and emulating Roland MT32 new Reply to this message

Is there a way to play the pseud-scumm game properly on a NT machine?

I just discovered SCUMMVM the other day and was blown away by its quality. Zak Mc Cracken rocks, but I still do miss the great midi music in LSLL6, which is missing if you try to run it as-is in Windows 2000. Is there any SCUMM-like interpreter proggy which will let me play sierra games with sound properly?

On the other hand. When were still a rare sight, an even rarer was the mighty "Roland MT-32". Is there any program which will let me trick old games into believing I have one of these, and sound accordingly?

I think some dosbox version has an MT32 emu, but best results will come if you actually buy an MT32

Aside from either using VDMSound or DOSBox I got no idea. Never tried the best of the Larry's (or any of them) with either program but it is worth a shot.

The important point is in the "emulator" part... as in "free of charge".


But thanks, I'm gonna try dosbox then :)

This was the best mt32 emulator I found. It needs the mt32 rom dumps. There were also builds of SCUMMVM with this emulator integrated. Let me know if you need any more info.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/munt/

Dunno how to make hyperlinks using this software.




SubjectWow, a ScummVM with that integrated? Any more info? -nt- new Reply to this message

yeah, the official ScummVM readme:

http://svn.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/*checkout*/scummvm/scummvm/tags/release-0-9-0/README

section 7.3.

the MT32 emu is compiled in by default

Emulator doesn't mean free. The main reason for emulators is if you can't get hold of the hardware or it's incomatible with your computer.
