Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

Not really on topic, but something I'm wondering about for some time and it kind of fits the thread. Is there a MIDI sound module available that allows uploading .sf files for it's audio output beside it's default sound patch base? And probably even the possibility to switch between those by any me...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

The CD talkie version of Space Quest IV (the one included with all currently available purchasable collections) has an officially tweaked GM-geared soundtrack. The original floppy text version does not, however. So it should be GM compatible. However, the GM translation that Sierra did isn't the be...

FatBoy BETA Soundfont updated to version 0.790

FatBoy v0.790 is now available for download . Finally, finally got around to replacing the concert flute. This one is milder, easier to pitch tune, and should work better in a wider variety of situations: RPGMaker "Slow" theme #1 I've done a few solid hours of testing on this release, but...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

@cwadge: I was shocked by how GREAT UHD3 soundfont sounds on the Raspberry Pi using Scummvm and its Fluidsynth support. And being so light, its just perfect for the little computer. Thanks!! Glad you've found it useful. :wink: However, I have noticed some strange sounds, like in the Space Quest IV ...

Nothing big, just a few very minor adjustments to attenuation.

FatBoy BETA Soundfont updated to version 0.788

FatBoy v0.788 is available for download. Just a few more minor adjustments to the attenuation of the GM Distortion Guitar. The envelope is weird on the attack on this one, so it took a lot of testing, but I think it sounds about right: Doom 1, E1M1 - At Doom's Gate As usual, please let me know if y...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

I appreciate the verbosity tremendously! Thanks for taking the time to respond and explain, your latest sample sounds EXACTLY like the game! I'm more than happy to take the time to extract and render properly, I just don't have the knowledge, tools I can learn to use :D Well, the SCIREV tool Kasens...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

Amazing! thanks so much for doing this, although it doesn't sound exactly like ScummVM with FatBoy for FluidSynth. I'm wondering if I can do it myself using a specific software? Maybe there's specific settings I need to use? This probably has something to do with Tom's MIDI capture, since the audio...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

@cwadge They can also be extracted with a old program called "SCI REsource Viewer" which you can find here: http://www.sierrahelp.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=456 The cool thing is with a lot of Sierra games there were unused music tracks hidden in the resource files (among other u...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

Amazing @cwadge, thanks for the update. I can't stress enough how gorgeous the GK tracks sound with FatBoy! No problem, glad you're enjoying it. :) Sorry for the newb question, but is there a way to extract those tracks (or midi files) and play them using your soundfont? I'd like to have it as a pl...

FatBoy BETA Soundfont updated to version 0.787

What better to do after an 18 hour work day than post a quick update? FatBoy v0.787 is here. Made GM "Power Drums" more... powerful. Slightly lowered the attenuation of the GM "Distortion Guitar" to prevent overpowering when layered. Please let me know if you notice any problems ...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

This page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_MT-32-compatible_computer_games is a pretty good resource, both for ScummVM and Dosbox. If the game is in the table, it supports the mt-32. If the last column says something like 'General Midi' or 'Roland SC-55', the music was composed for general mid...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

Thank you for the very quick reply! I was using MT-32 emulation for the PQ3, I thought I would give FatBoy a try for that game. I realize this might be a lot to ask, but do you have a list of games that FatBoy will "work" (as in sound awesome) with? I'm mostly looking for ScummVM-supporte...

Re: Better Music for GM ScummVM (and DOSBox) games

I just found this thread and tried out FatBoy with ScummVM 2.1 on Windows and Android, works like a charm!. I have a lot of game testing to do, including Raspberry Pi (using RetroPie) but in the meantime I'd like to ask if it's possible to add the bass and "siren" sounds in the PQ3 intro,...
