Are you talking about MIDI instruments in place of digitized sound effects? That IS one thing that is weird about older MT-32 games. :-/

The doors actually sound like doors in the MT-32 sound setting... That's just the start of it.

But yeah the game sends a SysEx with a bunch of custom patches for SFX usage.

Keep it up! I’m enjoying living vicariously through your gaming adventures (I rarely finish any games)

Just finished Eschalon: Book 1. Very impressive RPG. I highly recommend it to fellow adults without a ton of time, as it can be completed in about 30 hours or less, yet gives you that warm, fuzzy RPG experience from yesteryear.

Resident Evil 7
Finished in about 12hrs including all the DLC except the non story based DLC

Worth playing but definetly wait for a discount.
No issues with performance, bugs or crashes.

I don't play many console games so having to deal with console bullshit was annoying. Limited save slots (not a big deal in this case), scenarios designed to get you to repeat since there's no way you'd know what to do the first time, boss fights you need to repeat over and over, etc.

Ultima Underworld is written for the CM32L/LAPC-I, not the MT-32. It uses the 32 samples included in the CM32L, notably including the water splashing sound.

I really must get around to finishing it..
