Adlib Gold Midi not working

Post by Fenix77 » Wed 18 Oct, 2017 2:11 am


Firs i must say it's great to have the Adlib Gold emulation for historic reasons and to hear Dune II with the Surround Module and also play music and some games in Win 3.x.

I found a bug with the Adlib Gold emulation. (I know very few games support this card).
In the released PCEM v12 the Adlib gold works ok, with Dune II and The Lost Vikings (the only games i know that support the Adlib Gold), and the JukeBox works perfectly.
But the problem is when i try to play a midi file in both the Adlib Gold test program and when i select "Gold Midi" in the MIDI mapper in Win 3.1 ( i found the drivers).
It does not play any music when i open a midi file and in some cases can lock-up the emulated machine.
If i select "Gold Synth" it works but when i play a midi file it sound choppy.

In the last SVN the Jukebox cannot be heard

PD: I used the same hard disk image, with both PCEM versions, last SVN and v12. The hard disk has DOS and Windows 3.1 drivers installed.
The Windows is in spanish but i added it to clarify the issue.

Thanks in advence!

External MIDI on the Adlib Gold isn't implemented currently I'm afraid - only the internal synth.
