Emulating MT-32 on QFG1 EGA - intermittent sound, low volume

Post by pyronic » Thu May 10, 2018 4:50 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to play Quest for Glory 1 EGA using the MT-32 emulator for the sound.

When the game starts the volume is mostly fine but once I load a savegame it goes very very very quiet. The sound also only works intermittently - I will enter areas I know have certain music to them and the music just won't play.

I can get the volume up by editing the game in the ScummVM interface and increasing the MIDI gain, but this results in a dreadful hiss in the background (like you're turning up the volume too much on a radio with a very weak signal) and the result sounds crappy.

I did download the MT-32 emulation files from a forum, but I don't know if I have the exact right ones.

Does anybody know what might be wrong?
