I found a copy of the Sim City 2000 demo here: https://archive.org/details/Simcity2000Demo, but there doesn't seem to be any sound in that version. At least I can't find a way to enable it. For the full release, the file is sound\a32adlib.dll IIRC. I'll also take a look at the other games.
That would explain why I could not get adpatch working with the demo!
It seems there is not even pc speaker sound in the demo version. I guess its some sort of extreme space/cost saving measure from the game developers.
While there are some notable games that seem to be missing from adpatch compatability, I think the list of games supported is quite impressive as is.
Certainly without your work on adpatch there would be no adlib sound at all in some of these games with OPL2LPT and OPL3LPT cards.
You get two thumbs up from me!
Are you thinking of updating the list of adpatch tested games on the github wiki page? If so, you should note that while adpatch seems to be working with Shadow Warrior shareware demo it will not work with the full version of that game. Shadow Warrior dropped adlib (and general midi) music in the retail release in favor of CD audio tracks. I thought this might be important because the demo can give a false impression if a person is not familiar with the game.
