MT32 settings for Pre Packaged game.

Post by Chris-red » Sun Jan 07, 2018 4:26 pm

Hi Guys,

I have Revolation Software's 25th Anniversary Collection. Most of the old(er) games run using SCUMMVM emulation.

I am trying to enable MT32 Midi for Beneath a Steel Sky.

I have put the MT32 ROMs in...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Revolution 25th Anniversary Collection\1994 - Beneath a Steel Sky\ScummVM

I have edited my config file this is what it looks like now (the asterisks indicate lines I added but aren't present in the actual file)

Code: Select all

[scummvm]
lastselectedgame=sky
versioninfo=1.7.0
*native_mt32=true
*music_driver=mt32
*mt32_device=mt32
*enable_gs=true
[sky]
gameid=sky
description=Beneath a Steel Sky (v0.0372 cd)
path=C:\Program Files (x86)\Revolution 25th Anniversary Collection\1994 - Beneath a Steel Sky\
subtitles=true

Any ideas how to get it to work? If I open ScummVM it just boots to the Game, with the standard music.

Thanks,
Chris

If you’re trying to get nicer music than adlib, there’s a digital soundtrack available from James Woodcock for BASS and a few other games. Highly recommended.

No need to mess with ROMs or do any special setup/config. Just drop the digital audio files into the game directory.
