Re: Space Hulk soundfont/midi help.

Hey, thanks for the reply! I tried messing around with what I figured would be the sound files and the game wouldn't boot. I was going to experiment further but then realized the cutscenes ends sooner than the track, so the end is cut off anyway. And you're right, those are Amiga music files. …

Re: Space Hulk soundfont/midi help.

Quick thought. Might not be of any use. I note that these are the game files of the original DOS version : Screenshot from 2021-03-03 12-16-49.png It may be possible to manipulate the "*pcm*" files, for example zero-byte or zero-fill some or all of them, to 'hack' the game into 'not being able to …

Re: Any others given up on the hobby?

There is an argument to be made that if you post on Vogons, then you're still in the hobby, to some extent. So most of us are just a little bit hypocritical, perhaps.

This will be oldhat for many of you, but the reminder won't hurt. TI-randomly-L... ...that spispopd stands for 'smashing pumpkins into small piles of putrid debris', that being a descriptive reference to the fragging of cacodemons (aka horny red beholders from Mars). And that, as a delightful hat- …

Re: Phil’s latest video - Voltage Blaster

Adalbert, yes you can, though you would also have to get the correct crimping tool, and for just one cable that seems a bit overkill, yet... one can never have enough tools :-D Alternatively, a quick soldering and a pair of pliers would be more-than-ample to get a pin joined to a wire in a 100% …

Re: DOS Gameport Woe

Yes, I do. Can this cause issues? I have had issues with it before. I don't know if that's typical. I suspect it depends upon several factors working together e.g. the card, the wiring of the splitter, and the type/complexity of joystick. In my scenario, DOS 7 and Tie Fighter with an SC55MkII and …
