#9285 closed patch (wontfix)

SCI: prefer MT32 in some older SCI games

Reported by: tsoliman Owned by: bluegr
Priority: normal Component: Engine: SCI
Version: Keywords: MT-32 MIDI
Cc: Game:


Some SCI games already prefer GM. This makes it so that the rest of them prefer MT32 instead. I tested preferring MT32 falls back gracefully if the MT32 device is "Don't use MT32".

Thanks for your patch, however I don't think it is a good idea to prefer MT-32 by default, as that will load up Munt with the default audio settings (unless an actual MT-32 device is present).

I've sent an e-mail to -devel concerning this.

Also, it isn't necessary to drag the device flags around, a check for SCI version can be performed inside the MIDI driver without specifying an additional parameter.

Having discussed this with waltervn and clone2727, it'd be best if the default sound option is Adlib, as that is more compatible and always works. The user is of course able to select any of the MIDI drivers he/she wants, in which case he/she can enjoy GM or MT-32 music.

Therefore, although your work is highly appreciated, this patch is rejected, I'm afraid :(
