I know this problem was posted a long time ago however I can't find any info on it and the problem still exists.

Walking around Woodtick the sound only plays with a drumkit. I use Alsa midi with my SBlive! using a sYnerGi GS/GM soundfont bank (

I use Scummvm 0.2.2 CVS built on Oct. 26 2002 using a Debian Linux system. Monkey 2 floppy version english language.

This has been partially addressed as part of a larger MT-32 emulation initiative. At this time, you shoud no longer be getting all percussion in Woodtick; however, you may not get the instruments that you expect.

Two issues have to be resolved here:

(1) The floating MIDI channel allocation algorithm currently in place does not accommodate certain assumptions being made in the ROL tracks. I have modified the algorithm to accommodate these assumptions, but the changes are still a little buggy and need some work.

(2) The ROL tracks use some custom MT-32 instrument definitions. Chuzwuzza is doing a fabulous job cataloguing closest-match equivalent General MIDI instruments for MI2, and the most commonly used custom instruments (including the Woodtick ones) are already in CVS.

MT-32 emulation is not a priority for the 0.3.0 release, but I'll get back to this after the more important stuff has been put to rest.

I'm pretty sure all-percussion problems are not an issue anymore. jsaathof, can you verify for me that you are not having a problem with all-percussion tracks anymore, at any location where you used to? If not, I think we can close this one.
