General Midi Settings Update

Just a little update for you, the settings I posed in the last post work fine, and will map the general midi thru your sound card or sound device if it has support, without generating a constant stream of control error messages. There is another option I have working if your sound card will not supp...

Hi all, I have sorted the problem. It seems that when I installed the scummvm emulator, I did not set the general midi default options, so the emulator was using what appeares to be the Windows Default MIDI device, which is software emulated. If anybody else is suffering similar ad-lib warnings, ple...

Re: Tinsel engine adlib warnings

[quote="eriktorbjorn"] I think that's because the music is in a format I've heard referred to as either XMIDI or XMI, which is an extended form of MIDI. When ScummVM tries to play that, there are probably a lot of control change messages that the AdLib player simply ignores.[/quote] Thanks for the r...

: update :

Seems to be the sound files causing issues, too large. If anybody stil reading this thread, I will try on my other hx4700 using WinCE 2003 SE to see if it is the o/s hogging resources or just plain lack of memory.

ipaq hx4700 memory problems

Hey guys I know this is a very unsupported platform now but I recently acquired an hx4700, flashed to wm5. I have successfully got the Win CE port to work in it running from a 2Gb SD card. (scummvm engine files are on the card itself, not on the pocket pc, so I should have all of the base memory fre...

Something seems to have eaten my last message, or maybe it never got posted at all, but according to the README it will keep using scummvm.ini in the Windows folder, if there already is one there. It seems a bit far-fetched, but could that be the cause of the problem here? ah... on my system the sc...

I concur with fingolfin, any Windows user should run as user and not admin. I will not run as super-user (or "root") in Linux so I definitely would not run as Admin in Windows unless absolutely neccessary. Apologies if my post was mis-interpreted. In answer to the question, running a program using "...

I have just been experimenting with a test "user" account on my system and I have discovered the following. It seems that the scummvm engine will immediately close when you "run as... administrator", _IF_ you originally installed scummvm using your user account. You need to install scummvm using the...

I don't know if this is any help at all, but Vista (and XP to some extend) sometimes requires certain admin privileges before it will actually write to certain folders. Are you running a "user" or an "administrator" account?

Thx. I only seem to get stuck channels (or conflicting channels) on the Sloth Island levels for some reason. Usually a really high-pitched note which is continuous. Incidentally I updated my audio drivers and the huge speech delays are now reduced to lengthy delays. All of the delays in the location...

First I keep getting stuck midi channels, is this normal or should I be looking at driv...

My apologies, I did not word my comments very well. You are quite correct, Discworld 1 and 2 do not have copy protection and do indeed have a simple cd check. I stand corrected on that one :oops: I seem to have one of the rare copies of Discworld Noir with a Safedisc protection on it which is why I ...

With Discworld 1 and 2 I don't bother installing. I drag all of the files over from the _original_ cd into a directo...
