Hi almeath,

> The patch is meant to also work with standard (SDL1) DOSBox SVN?

It's bit-rotten since its last update here, but the work has found a home in DOSBox ECE, DOSBox-X, DOSBox Core, and DOSBox Staging.

For SVN, I'd suggest using the latest state of the patch used by ECE - it was last modified here: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

> Also, if I am not needing to actually encode any CD audio into the respective formats, are there any baseline benefits to audio playback that are noticeable in standard DOSBox

Exactly; if you're only playing existing GoG (OGG Vorbis) encoded CD-DA tracks or mounting BIN/CUE's, then the extra codecs add no value.

> or is it just the underlying efficiency of the code that is improved?

Right; there was some mild refactoring done, but certainly nothing "make or break" in terms of performance.

Hope that helps!

Edit: added DOSBox-X; thanks for the reminder @Wengier!

And it has found a home in DOSBox-X too (of course - thanks to your work). It is already supported by all major forks by now.

Is there a patch for Wing Commander Privateer and the ol OriginFX games?

i don't think no one at WCNews did that yet, it would be interesting to see GoG or stock Privateer with high quality ripped audio instead of MIDI soundtracks.

Hi Deffnator, I don't think Privateer's CDROM ever came with CDDA tracks; so your highest-quality option is to use MIDI with you favourite SoundFont.

i know, but i was thinking here of the idea of dosbox replacing the MIDI soundtrack with CD/External files audio by wrapping using roland or Soundblaster with dosbox loading the external music with the game's midi filenames.
i came to think of it while looking Warcraft 1 DOS vs MAC ports.
