Yeah, I think that broke other things even in pnauts itself. It sounds fine in the title screen but you can't start a new game or load saved games, just goes to a black screen.

Ok, now it's working for real, so I had to make a video of this. Here's your highlight, RB smile

I have also tried a couple other games that use 86 PCM sound and I haven't seen any regressions for now.

You use the CD-ROM (*.chd) + Floppy Disk or installed on Hard Disk (*.chd)?

Looks like CD-ROM plus boot floppy based on the boot up messages.

It's floppy + CD but the installer has an option to copy some stuff to the HDD for faster loading. I have it enabled but I don't think it makes much of a difference inside emulation.

Actually, I didn't show this in the video but the *ideal* way to run the game is to use a DOS 5.0 bootable floppy. The installer runs out of space with 6.2 and you have to do some dirty tricks to make it work.

I was adding some floppy stuff to the softlist and I think I have found a regression in the MPU-401 MIDI device, it just doesn't work anymore. At first I thought it could be related to this commit because the address map probably should be "map(0x0, 0x3)" instead of "map(0x0, 0x0)", and changing that makes software recognize the card... but it still doesn't output MIDI data, so there has to be something else.

0.196 was the last version where it worked, so it definitely happened between that and 0.197.

I've got no way of playing midi so I can't really help other than to see that the device is attached. Do other things work like the pc mpu401 or the x68000 midi?

You can send MAME MIDI output to a softsynth
