Where can I legally purchase Secret of Monkey Island (MT32 version) ?

Postby sofakng » 2019-8-08 @ 18:47

Does anybody know if it's possible to legally purchase The Secret of Monkey Island (MT32/midi version) ?

I own a copy of the CD version but I've recently purchased a Roland MT32 and I really want to use it to play the MIDI soundtrack.

Also, it looks like I need a patch for the original version of the game because it didn't support M32/midi until the patch added it? If so, where can I get that patch from?

This is vogons

You either wait and buy original media that will need a warez backup

Or you do without since gog doesn’t have the version you want

Regarding the patch, check out this thread

You need "monkeyup" and also read the text file as after installing it you need to start the game with "r" as a command line parameter
This is for the vga version btw
