Just picked up my first MT-32 Roland device.
I have a 386 DX 40 with SB 16 CT2290 IDE , ISA not PnP.
I have few games to test with that have Roland. Wing Commander and Monkey Island and WC hangs if I configure Roland at the start of executing the WC.EXE file (trying to load expanded memory) it works without using Roland no problem.
Monkey Island I can't get any MIDI to the Roland, I see no messages (in either games)
I have an ebay cable that connects from the db15 joystick to the Roland via db15 -> MIDI. The cable also splits to a second female DB15 I gather so you can plug your joystick there too. The cable also has two MIDI out cables that are male. I connected one of them to the MT-32 MIDI input ( i tried both just in case but no messages from either)
1. Is this the wrong cable ?
2. I currently have the jumper to disable the joystick on the soundcard because I use another ISA card game card for the joystick, does joystick need to be enabled on the card for MIDI to the MT-32 to work?
3. Do i need softmpu for these to work? I didn't look into that yet.
