VDMSound: 2.1.0 do not have smart<->UART midi mode switch in options. This causes games which need UART to run without music. The example of such is "Touche: Adventures of The Fifth Musketeer" http://www.the-underdogs.org/game.php?id=1175 If you run this game in DosBox 0.63 it wil also run without music. But after adding intelligent=false to dosbox.conf's [midi] section the music will be playing.
If someone could add smart->UART switch to VDMSound, games that need UART would not be silent in VDMSound. DosBox is good but it emulates too much. Touche e.g. works fine in windowsXP but VDMSound provides only SB emulation because UART midi music is not supported by VDMS.
