I have received and assembled my OPL2LPT and it is working very well! Thanks dreamblaster for the detailed instructions 😀 Also I got a few questions:
- Sometimes when I cold-start the PC the OPL2LPT will emit a sound or series of sounds. This isn't a real problem since it happens rarely and I can reset the OPL2LPT from DOS, but is this behavior to be expected or did I miss something about the assembly? Or could this be caused by the motherboard's BIOS (Abit KT7A) sending stuff over the parallel port?
- I tried to patch Monkey Island 1, and although the patch seems to proceed successfully (two locations were patch), I get no sound. OTOH the ADLIPT program will produce sound when the non patched MONKEY.EXE is run. Any idea?
- Are there particular noteworthy DOS games that make use of the OPL3 more advanced capabilities?
