Hey folks,

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post, but it's DOS music related.

Basically, since XMI does not contain specification for Note Off data, XMI2MID converters seem to apply it differently.
FalcoSoft uses a value of 0, kode54 uses a value of 64, and still others use the same value as the Note On event (different each time).

To convert XMI tracks properly to GM, which method should be used? The game I am converting uses Adlib for music, in case that's relevant.

Value of 0 is what I see for Note Off on the MIDI captures I did with real hardware from Warcraft 1 and Warcraft 2.

Win11 - AMD Ryzen 9 3900 - 16 GB - GeForce RTX 2060S - Sound BlasterX G5 7.1
Win98SE - ASRock 775i65G R3.0 - Celeron 2.2 GHz - 2 GB - GeForce FX5700 - Ensoniq 1373
Win98SE - Via Apollo Pro Mobo - Pentium II 233 - 256 MB - Voodoo 3 1000 - ESS Solo-1 1938
