OK I have my X2GS and since I don't know what I'm doing, I flashed it to both 0x5000 and 0x7000. Hopefully that doesn't "hurt" anything. I don't really need the original ROM's since the APPIAH 4.5 sounds so good in the samples above.

Is that all that is needed to activate it from now on? Or do I need to run a .MID file before I use it for games?

for using the GS bank, that's all there is to do, the x2gs boots by default into the GS bank, reading the preset your flashed.
if you want to use the user bank instead, you can play a USERBANK.MID midi file from https://serdaco.com/downloads/X2/X2GS_Documen … on/BANKMIDI.zip
to switch to this bank

Just like to stop by and say I received my dreamblaster x2gs a few weeks ago, and it's probably one the single best purchases of my life time, haha. Cheers to the creators of such a great little gadget, I never got to hear DOS game music like this before and even my friends that think my retro PC hobby is insane are forced to admit it's pretty dang cool.
