Post subject:  Better Audio for UAKM & Pandora

So after 23 years (more or less) I learned something I never realized about Under a Killing Moon and Pandora Directive. I was watching this video today:

8-bit Keys - "The Best Sound for MS-DOS Games - Roland MT-32"
https://youtu.be/BMmFcs-_4x4

It got me thinking about old DOS hardware and better audio from old video games. Well the Roland MT-32 (the device in the video) is compatible with both UAKM and Pandora! If you watch the video, it will enlighten you as to what I'm talking about. Anyway, I was quite surprised how well it improved the MIDI music in the game. Well, I got it to work with UAKM, but Pandora I am having issues with. The game crashes whenever I try to switch to the Roland MT-32. Anyway, I'm not sure if anyone here knew the device existed or that it was compatible with the old Tex games and I thought I would share it here. It seems to work better with the old Sierra games and the Lucas Arts stuff, but I know there's fans of those games on here as well. Try Googling around if you're interested!

I watched the video. I don't have access to an MT-32, but I figured, by now, there must be emulators available. I found one called MUNT. I downloaded it, but it doesn't come with any ROMs (most likely due to copyright/patent restrictions). I found a couple of downloadable ROM packs and downloaded them. Unfortunately, they didn't work: I can't get any sound when trying the MUNT console. Oh well.

ps. if anyone has hints/tips/ROM packs or download links, please let me know.
