What's weird and I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong. But I installed an MT32 emulator and it seems to work I have access to it from control panel. But my does games can't detect the MT32. When MT32 is set as default from control panel the game does sound different when use general midi and if I use MT32 in the game's settings, it just sounds weird and buggy.
Magmarock: I don't actually have Ultima I'm just interested in MT32 and weather or not it's worth using for other games.
Arkose: Oh, well the quality of implementation depends on the game. Some games were built with the MT-32 in mind so sound great with it while others were aimed at general MIDI and so support the MT-32 but don't make full use of it. There are even a few games where the MT-32 is listed in the sound setup program but doesn't actually work in-game (e.g. Daggerfall, which will crash at launch if the MT-32 is selected).
