AGOS: MT-32 Behavior in Intro wrong

Reported by: GermanTribun Owned by: NMIError

System: Windows 10
ScummvM: 2.2.0
Game Version: German CD-version

In Simon the Sorcerer 2, if using MT-32, the music behavior in the into is wrong.

All three music changes in the first intro scene
normal music > Runt's father theme
Runt's father theme > normal music
normal music > Sordid appears music
do not happen. Instead the first music plays continuously throughout the scene, which is wrong.

I can hardly compare it in DosBox, since I can't set up MT-32 for it due to technical reasons. Are these music files missing from the MT-32 soundtrack, or is this a simple bug in ScummVM that was not caught due to so few people using the MT-32 emulation?

The second and third music tracks in the intro are completely missing from the game's MT-32 music data (the original DOS version just stops playing music after the first track). A workaround has recently been added to ScummVM which will adapt the GM versions of these tracks to play when MT-32 is selected, which fixes this issue.
