    Broken music file

    Could be. Why would it though? That sounds like the sort of thing that would happen during gameplay. This is the medley that's played during the credits, isn't it? Anyway, a reset wouldn't explain the cacophony that the whole March part of the piece plays. So that we're on the same page, I've...

    Broken music file

    So what do you think, is it MT-32 or is it recomposed GM? BTW, it was designed primarily for MT-32, but as you can see from the setup screen, it supports other cards. From what research I could do, it seemed as though there were no new notes being played after the first few seconds of the...

    Broken music file

    I'm amazed that you were able to get it to work so well. On every setup I played it, it was an unmistakable mess. I've taken it as far as I can. I went for help on https://www.midi.org/forum/1670-repairing-midis for it, but I didn't know what they were talking about or they didn't know what I...

    Broken music file

    I thought someone should know that one of the WC2 midi files is broken. If you listen to WC2-48.MID it sounds like it's trying to play a medley, but then comes crashing down as it's trying to play the Kilrathi theme at the end. I've tried it under 2 different platforms and several different...

    What's in a typical WCProphecy box?

    Yeah, I'm not so much a fanboy that I need things like the catalogue, but if it can have some of the artistic features that would improve the whole experience (I liked IV for having a short story book). Thanks.

    What's in a typical WCProphecy box?

    Oops... yeah, I just noticed that myself. Ok, so the reference card doesn't sound like a deal breaker. I take it the "updates page" just let's you know about patches. The "flight manual" looks like it's just about everything. That's the main manual, isn't it? What does the "1997 EA manual" have...

    Wow! http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Wing-Commander-Prophecy-PC-1997-/270905989690?pt=Video_Games_Games&hash=item3f13415a3a says that it comes with a "VHS or DVD"??? That's not that joke that Freddy Prinze Jr. called a movie, is it?

    What's in a typical WCProphecy box?

    I want to buy it, but I see that they go for as little as 5$ on eBay. That probably comes with a disk in a paper sleeve. So I'd like to know what kind of trinkets it would typically have, minus the advertising, I suppose. I'm thinking manuals, maps, fighter who's whos, laser weapons, etc.
