How to get midi playback working? Timidity patches?
« on: June 04, 2004, 01:02:24 am »
I have sdl-mixer installed as well as xu4.  I dont have midi playback though.  xu4 is looking for a timidity.cfg.  Upon reading more about this, the docs seem to require a timidity patch.  Anybody know how I can get midi playback working on the zaurus?

Thanks.

I\'ll do better than that.  I will share that and everything else that I have done with my zaurus.

Have a look here.  http://cmisip.home.insightbb.com/zaurus.htm

If you are only interested in midi playback, just go to the bottom of the page.   This will work with prboom also.  Playing doom with the midi background music adds a whole new dimension to gameplay (If i can just figure out how to open the door).    The xu4 midi music is catching though.  After a while, it will play over and over in your mind.

Playing doom with the midi background music adds a whole new dimension to gameplay (If i can just figure out how to open the door).
bring up the menu, select options,then choose setup, then key bindings

on the first screen select a suitable key for the 'use' function.

run up to the door and hit this key.

I use the - key on my c760 as it is next to the space bar which I use for fire.

Right. . Well THAT link is down as well...

Anybody who knows how to do this, please tell me. . . I have 250 odd Final Fantasy MIDI track that I want to play, and no way to play them.

After configuring this, will Sharp mediaPlayer (Which lists the files but won't play them) Then be able to play them?
