    v3 v4  
    33The patch adds environmental sounds from the Amiga version because the dos version of the game didn't have any. The dos version has superior music when using MUNT so this patch combined the two. The patch also restores individual day/night palettes that are not present in later versions of the game because Sierra removed them to get the game to fit on a single floppy disk. The earlier versions of the game that have the original palettes play just fine in ScummVM as well.

    5 In this patch, when starting a new game and Rosella is standing at the beach you can hear seagulls and the roar of the ocean when using dosbox. This can also be heard in the Amiga version of the game when playing it in ScummVM. It works just fine in the version of dosbox provided, which is just dosbox with MUNT support, and that's why I had mentioned it. The game looks like it's using a custom sound driver with GUS and MT-32 combined when I looked at the diagnostic log from dosbox. Looking at the original files of the game before patching the driver file for MT-32 is named MT32.DRV and after patching this file is no longer present and replaced by MTSBGUS.DRV. A simple renaming of MTSBGUS.DRV to MT32.DRV obviously does not fix the issue but I'm not an expert on these things and not sure how newrisingsun created this patch. I had assumed that the sound support for this would be something that ScummVM could improve upon since I can hear the music just fine when using MT-32 emulation and can kind of hear the environmental sound when switching to Amiga sound emulation even though it's garbled. I can't get both environmental sound and music to play at the same time.

    7 I would think it's safe to say that the patch is in similar fashion as to the idea of the monkey island 1 and 2 unofficial talkie patches which are recognized and play just fine in ScummVM. Also, seeing how unofficial games like Space Quest 0, Space Quest X, and King's Quest 2.5 for example are recognized in ScummVM then I had assumed they have support in some fashion hence my reason for submitting this ticket.
