Re: Best WinXP Video Card

openAL is all software I'm pretty sure. I don't know how it wouldn't be. This is not true. OpenAL works similar to OpenGL. That is when you run the core OpenAL installer it installs a generic driver OpenAL32.dll. On Windows XP this driver can wrap around hardware accelerated Directsound3D so a …

Re: The Lost Vikings MIDI Files

in DOS
OK, so I extracted files from DATA.DAT, but they aren't in MIDI format and I've tried searching up how to convert them to MIDI format, but to no avail.

in Windows
Yeah this might be a dead-end until win 3.1 source leaks like XP and some fans decide to add this functionality. What I found is: Turns out I was wrong, The Windows 3.1 SDK does in fact define WM_MBUTTONDOWN and WM_MBUTTONUP. No built-in applications use it, and very few other applications do …

I think the biggest difference is SF2 was designed with …

Re: Roland UM-ONE / MIDI Player

I understand the setup and I have that part done. What I am asking is how once I have the game open, how do I set the game to use the MIDI Player and do I need to do anything on the MIDI PLayer (like click Play) to get it working on the game. Yes, Phil does an amazing job at showing setup and …

Related issue: How are people recording Windows audio nowadays? In the XP era you would use the Stereo Mix/"What U Hear" recording device as an audio input. This has been entirely removed from modern Windows versions though. I normally just launch one of my retro machines when I want to do this, …

Re: Heads Up: Roland Sound Canvas VA VSTi Plugin!

Hey all, I am just getting my feet wet with this stuff. I have the FSMP installed and running. What do I need to do to get the Roland SC VA (which I also have) interface to come up? Not sure where to load it in the FSMP. Also, I have the Roland UM-ONE device, do I still need loopMidi along with …
