So I built a C3 Ezra gaming rig which I'm able to slow down easily to 386 speeds.
I've tried everything I can think of to get Wing Commander II working right, but no matter what, the sound effects played by the MT-32 are wrong.
The music itself is fine, as are the Sound Blaster sound effects.
I tried speeding things up, slowing things down to the point where the intro was getting out of sync from the music but the issue persists.
I thought maybe my installation was corrupted so I copied the game files from my Deluxe Edition CD-ROM but no dice.
I'm using a HardMPU MPU-401 card, with DelaySysex on and off.
The CPU had L1, L2, Instruction Cache and Branch Prediction disabled. The FSB was set to 50MHz and I managed to even get the multiplier down to 3x (150MHz) without freezing.
I set the 8 and 16bit IO recovery time to 8 and 4 respectively.
I also tried to disable the sound/speech support and only have the MT-32.
Has anyone seen this issue?
Note, I tried using an MT-32 new in hardware and an MT-32 old via MUNT and a MIDI-USB adapter. The results were identical. Good music, bad sound effects.
