#7393 closed feature request

MIDI support on Palm

Reported by: SF/rafabgood Owned by: SF/chrilith
Priority: normal Component: Port: PalmOS
Version: Keywords:
Cc: Game:


Considering that MIDI is not supported and a wavetable would drain all the memory, a fast way to do that is to work on the audio files, converting it all to MP3 (music sepparetad from the speech/effects), and use the Pocket Tunes API to load it as background music.

As far as I know, it's esay to convert from MIDI to mp3 and since Palm can load multiple mp3 files at the same time, I think that is possible.

Hmm... How would it handle the games that use iMUSE, where you can turn on/off individual instruments and where (if I understand it correctly) information is embedded in the music data to allow it to change smoothly from one tune to another. The Woodtick area in Monkey Island 2 is a good example of both of these.

Well, I must confess that I didnt know about iMuse... Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't Ogg Vorbis support multitrack audio files? If not, there is something potentially interest to develop... :)

Just an update: I download the new modular test version and I was impressed by the adlib emulation. The sad side is that it made the game extremely slow (Zire 72), much more than I was expecting... I download the sources and I am studying it to point some suggestion (well, at least try)

ps: gee... I really got interested in a multitrack ogg / mp3...

I'm working on the adlib driver which will provide MIDI emu.

Adlib support has been added but it's slow :\

For now ScummVM doesn't compile anymore on palmos due to bug #1212512
