Todo:
1. 117 03 - ??? (remap to 00 CTF I guess)
2. 127 05 - Footsteps - needs bank 00 reset afterward
3. Fix drum 03 CTF
4. Looks like no GS reset at startup

To not make two posts:

I'm not sure if you know about this or even fixed it, but in Duke3D Grabbag some drum notes are missing immediately after the track restarts. Was reminded of it when listening to these recordings. If I'm not mistaken it's even on the FM renditions...

Also, one more for the GS synth list: AWE64 with GS banks loaded 😀

Thanks - did not know that or paid close attention about Duke3D. Going to listen to the AWE64 results later.

Debugging Rama is so annoying. I think I found the pseudo-bug where it refuses to start new audio tracks though - hope to get that working (incredibly annoying bug, whether Dosbox fault or not).

What files are patched, or does it add files to the directory?

sierra.exe was patched and genmidi.drv is replaced from archive.
UPD - don't know what i did, but it works now 😵
UPD2 - and now it not working again, dunno what to do 😠

What MIDI device do you use? There's only so many things it can be, especially if it is sometimes working and sometimes not.

I use hardware SB X-fi synth or software Roland SC VSTi + dosbox ece build. After hacking PQ4 even install.exe says that General MIDI driver is not supported by your system (was working before that).
Also all other hacks that i tried (QFG3-4, Larry 6, PoP2) works fine, only with PQ4 i have problems..

Never played PQ4, so hard for me to test. Guess I could try with and without. What MIDI synth do you have set in Windows when you load the game? Roland SC VST?

tikalat, I noticed in the MIDI file for Descent 1 Game10.hmp.mid, there are notes 92 and 93 in channel 10, which are invalid for the standard drum kit. Can you patch in a fix to remove that incorrect data?
