music for the tornado build
« on: June 01, 2020, 09:28:36 AM »
hi - i got the copy of tornado you had here a while back (i have my own installs but i assume yours is the "modded" one and saves me the trouble of figuring out the modding myself, which didnt work out so well last time i tried) but there is no intro or menu music in your version- is this right? i like the tornado into music, is there a way to have it playing in the sim?

Hi Agathosdaimon

I get my Tornado music by copying a modded FLIGHT.EXE and pasting into a full installation of Tornado 1.0E's C:\TORNADO\TORNADO\FLIGHT folder.
During the game, make sure you hit the 8 key to cycle through the various sound settings. To have the intro music playing in the sim, you have to go to the Options | Preferences part of the GUI and set your music/sound options.


Also, if you have the development environment, after you link the FLIGHT.EXE, when you run the program, you can do so with the /ma flag to play the theme song. As in:
D:\TORNADO\FLIGHT\FLIGHT /a /ma

regards

okay thanks - i see i had to turn it on and then restart the game altogether

music plays now, but its a little bit crackly - was that simply how it is, or can that be improved by some setting?

I suppose if you played the game using a retro PC with real DOS 5.0/6.0 and with actual SoundBlaster or Roland hardware, the quality might be better. For me I am playing Tornado off a Windows 10 laptop running DOSBox 074-3 which is emulating the soundcard.
Crackly? Maybe switch to Adlib and give it a try. Soundblaster sound, however, should sound richer and fuller with more bass.

After the Dogs of War are let slip, let us smoke the Pipes Of Peace.

 

Could this be Dogs of war theme / trailer music?
