Re: Is this a fake Lemmings disk?

I dispute that "the real" 3.5" version supposedly wants the keydisk every time. VGALEMMI on 5.25" and 3.5" disk is the same file, so it must behave the same. It's possible that the poster had a different VGALEMMI.EXE on his 3.5" disk, possibly earlier than 1991-07-19, that was stricter in this …

Re: Is this a fake Lemmings disk?

I don't know anything about copy-protection or Lemmings, but this is what I tried: When I do a fresh install of the game there is no RUSSELL.DAT file and the game insists that I insert the disk for it to start. Then if I put the disk in it will load the game and create a (hidden) RUSSELL.DAT file …

Re: What causes this Basica illegal function call in Friendlyware?

in DOS
Speaking of weirdo BASIC errors, there's still a prize out on the mysterious "Error 241" check in IBM's Arithmetic Games... I see no way of solving this mystery, short of contacting the original developers and asking them about it, or allowing for the possibility that the number 241 is merely a …

Re: What causes this Basica illegal function call in Friendlyware?

in DOS
I also notice that a common download of this game uses BASIC.EXE from Tandy DOS, which will have no sound at all on a non-Tandy computer, and which most certainly is not the originally-intended interpreter version. Using non-Tandy GWBASIC.EXE v3.23 also solves the illegal function call issue.

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

The patch to combine the audio tracks of both Star Trail CDs into one oversize CD and make the game work with it? I better post that to a separate thread, after Christmas when I have the time to test it against the current popular DOSBox builds, as I made it in 2016 when SVN Daum was still the most …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

Obviously, the answer to "will you let me?" is "No!". Another round, then. These (underlined passages) are rude comments that added nothing to the discussion. They weren't necessary, and can only be interpreted to start an argument or show your dominance. You were searching for and have now found …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

No one cares about this but you. The amount of text you write attacking me contradicts your claim that you do not care. You care a lot, excessively, obsessively. You derailed this thread by trying to hold me accountable for all the bad things I supposedly said and how arrogant and petulant and " …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

I think you at least owe me an apology for the ScummVM "blacklist" cheap-shot. Shreddoc is not part of the pile-on because he was not out of line as you were. Like Shreddoc said, it's friggin' video games, man. I did not choose to derail this thread by trying to put me on trial, so to speak, you ( …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

You know fully well what the blacklist was actually for: a false claim that my SQ4 CD-ROM improvement patch was supposedly a "crack" because it removed a copy-protection check that never existed (in that version) in the first place. After that was pointed out to them, they changed their tune to …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

So what do you want, now? First I'm the bad guy for offering a patch that I must have made within twenty minutes just to "save face" in a forum thread -- as ridiculous as that sounds already --, then I am even worse for withdrawing the offer to which you objected in the first place? Like I said, …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

That is correct. To my knowledge, all English-language versions lack the audio tracks and only support music via MIDI, and the German-language CD version was later re-released on just one CD, and that one truly misses many of the songs as Redbook audio. The sequel to this game, Shadows over Riva, …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

All right, you two clowns, I have withdrawn the patch offer per your wishes. You know exactly what he meant - the track doesn't play during the natural course of playing the game itself. That is not what he meant. He meant that the CD version does not have all the material of the floppy disk version …

Re: Is there a list of games composed on MT-32 (OLD vs new), or a list of which synths were used for which DOS games?

That music is on the second CD, track 12. The CD version is missing nothing, and nothing has been cut-down. Nothing whatsoever. If you think something has been cut, then you just have not looked properly. It only plays the Character Creation music if you have the first CD in the drive. The game only …
