What software do you use for the serial routing to the mt32?

Just modified game drivers, where I've adapted the MPU-401 routines for serial-port (COM1) usage. These drivers are all available in subsequent pages of the following thread, along with a small executable (SER31250.COM) that will set the PSSJ UART to 31250bps:

Recently swapped-out the dimming CM-11 monitor with its newer-style (and less-used) counterpart. I'd thought that I was quite ready to move on from this system, but apparently not, having recently completed "Conquests of Camelot" on it besides. C'est la vie...

I think the CM11 is a rebranded 1084 ?

Couldn't say. The actual picture tubes may be similar, in any event.

In other news, I swapped the Iomega Jaz with an external Microtech PCD-47B unit tonight; it having been on the to-do list for some time. There's no associated performance benefit, but the noise reduction is worthwhile, despite the hit to the overall aesthetics.

I'm really quite done with this system now. No, really. 🤣

Well, so much for that. Again. 🙄

A longed-for Aiwa ACD-300 has replaced the Panasonic KXL-RW10A, and a CM-32L has been swapped-in for the MT-32. Go Super Dimension Fortress Macross Tandy 1000 RL!

The A2000 with A2286 is my favorite, but nice setup too 😀
