    DMXOPL v2.10 - Happy Holidays (Nov 27)

    @InsanityBringer You can use NukeYT's Doom OPL3 driver for Windows: Make sure you install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions and set up the stereo enviorment variable by going into your system properties, (Assuming if you're using Windows 7, not sure if the process is the same on 8 and 10.) clicking the advanced tab, then go to environment variables and create a new variable with the name DMXOPTION and the values -opl3 -extstereo -chips6, or just -opl3 if you want to emulate a true OPL3 chip, though you will only have roughly 9 channels so watch out for that with extended midis. Note that it won't sound exactly the same as in adlmidi due to DMX handling stuff differently.

    DMXOPL v2.10 - Happy Holidays (Nov 27)

    Someone on the Fourth Modulator discord chatroom recorded Doom on a real Windows 98/DOS PC with a Sound Blaster 16 ISA sound card and a real OPL3 chip. It might be due to the YMF262's low pass filter but my electric guitars sound a bit too chorusy for some reason. I'll have to look further into this. Other than that though, it was amazing to hear this on actual hardware.

    Doom (mostly) 16-bit audio sfx

    I would strongly recommend changing your topic title. It made me think these were 16-bit retro console chiptune recreations of Doom's SFX.

    Yeah, I've tried fixing that numerous times. Unfortunately, there is no way to remove it without ruining the preset. Unless I'm wrong, this is pretty much the best an electric guitar preset can sound in OPL without making separate patches for different key ranges which is impossible with DMX. Most compositions usually don't use that low of a key range anyway, so I don't think it's that big of a deal. The IWADs' MIDIs never go that even low AFAIK, at least Doom 1 and 2.

    I like Windows 98 SE out of pure nostalgia but I do recognize that even for their time, those older versions of Windows were not all that good and were especially prone to crashing. Objectively speaking, Windows 7 is easily the best and most reliable, although XP was good for it's time as well. BTW, am I the only one who thinks XP's default theme has aged horribly? I get that they were trying to make the GUI look modern at the time, but when you compare it to the Aero theme and even the 9x look now it just doesn't hold up in my opinion. There's just something about it that looks off-putting to me.
  8. Here, you can import the guitar patches from my copy of your GENMIDI set that I modified: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_1smPf4w4fYMWw4MGVuSkVaeGs
  9. Personally, I quite like this duel 2-op mod I did with Duke Nukem 2's guitar patch. Almost sounds TFIV-ish with the detuned operators and added release time. The notes keep quieting at higher octaves though and I haven't figured out how to fix that. :T https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_1smPf4w4fYYzZUWlZEdTVMMEE
  10. Sounds pretty good. The guitars could be better though and the open hi-hat IMO should be changed to match the closed one, as I like the Master System PSG noise-esque sound of the closed one.
  11. On the subject of Rare's platformers on the N64, I do think the first Banjo-Kazooie still holds up relatively well even with some of the issues it has with the controls and camera (though I'd argue the camera is at least a step up from Mario 64's, as you can hold the camera still behind you by pressing R). Tooie on the other hand, is way too massive for it's own good. The writing and humor is better but the Jiggies have multiple steps to earn them and require a lot of backtracking which can be very tedious. Not a bad game, but really hasn't held up well compared to the first one which had more constricted level design, was much easier to navigate, and also had a lot more replayability due to all of the different ways you could approach the Jiggies in a level. I haven't really played Conker's Bad Fur Day, but going off from what people have said about it in this topic, I don't think I'm missing much. That being said, if there is one of those games that deserved to be mentioned in this topic, it's definitely fucking Donkey Kong 64. Good lord, I can't believe I managed to enjoy that monstrosity as a child.

    Ducktales 2017

    Also one more thing, Webby sounds obnoxious as fuck. I mean I didn't like how she sounded in the original show but Jesus Christ, this isn't much better.

    AFAIK, they are trying to make it resemble more closely to the original comic books by Carl Barks.

    Ducktales 2017

    Just pointing it out, Alan Young's first role as Scrooge was in Mickey's Christmas Carol which came out in 1983, and he was 63 years old at the time. He was almost 70 by the time DuckTales started airing. You do have a point with David actually being Scottish.

    I'm the complete opposite when it comes to my opinion of Scrooge's new voice. David Tennant is by all means a fantastic actor, but he sounds too young for the role. I know Alan Young would have been a tough act to follow, but I would have honestly preferred it if they went with the guy who voiced him in that 2016 Mickey Mouse Christmas special. I can give them props for not making the nephews sound like the exact same character like the original show did or giving them the whole "totez radicl" shtick that the mid 90's show gave them, but I think it would have been better if they got actual kids or teenagers to voice them.
