I know you've all recently helped me with a Might and Magic issue (and I am very grateful for that.) but I had managed to find and dig out my old Xcom UFO defense and Xcom Terror from the deep Cds and installed them. They work great. Just one minor snag.
Other games when I run them use my windows midi mapper when I set them to General Midi.. Xcom surprisingly doesn't. It's baffling. I want to hear what the game is "supposed" to roughly round like using the Yamaha XG software I got on sale 😉
I mean, my version even has the sounds working in the intro video. The version that was recoded for Windows (which I also have with that retro issue of PC gamer from back in the day) even lacks those sounds.
Here's how it sounds normally with fm synth music. I don't want to record the general midi music but I DO want to listen to and enjoy it with a more symphonic and emersive feeling (though the FM synth is still pretty moody and creepy in the game).
