  1. Is the mt32emu driver installed properly? Is it working or at least listed in Control Panel Audio Properties? Is standalone Munt working? In my past experience QT apps don't work well if at all with Midi on 9x. You could try to use the 9x compatible Munt VSTi by connecting it to DOSBox with a 9x compatible virtual Midi cable and a 9x compatible VST Host. DOSBox > Midi Yoke > VSTHost with Munt VSTi > Audio Out http://falcosoft.hu/softwares.html#munt_vsti http://www.midiox.com/index.htm?http://www.midiox.com/myoke.htm https://www.hermannseib.com/english/vsthost.htm I pretty much guarantee this will work if properly configured.
  2. You need to have Munt running to make actual use of that driver (as per readme file) and it should be available as mt32emu in any software from which you can select a midi ouput device. You need to configure DOSBox to make use of it. In DOSBox config file: mididevice=win32 (default should be OK too) midiconfig=x (where x is a numeral digit correponding to the device you want to use) Set midiconfig to 1 and run DOSBox with the \LISTMIDI argument and see which device is selected, if it's not the right one, set it to 2, etc, till you find it.
  3. I would try to place the drv file in the system directory (or any other folder that is in the path) and add mt32emu=mt32emu.drv to the drivers section of the system.ini file and reboot.
  4. This page as well as Wikipedia can be viewed just fine with vanilla Opera 12.02.
  5. The Roland mention in the about box refers to the use of Roland sound samples used for midi playback by the Microsoft "synthesizer". They are all in a single file in RIFF format along with some playback instructions such as loop points for each sample. That file is called GM.dls and is located in the system32/drivers folder and is likely the only file in this folder that isn't actually a driver. The Roland mention in the about box doesn't mean any kind of Roland hardware midi device is being emulated. If you want to use Roland MT-32 Midi with MPU-401 Midi interface you need that hardware device installed or a driver software emulation if there is one.
  6. Win95cmd is a cmd.exe for 9x systems by Microsoft and can be found here: http://www.mdgx.com/dos.htm For using Mintty you need KernelEx (presumably) and a suitable bash environment. I use Mintty 1.1.3 from both an Msys and a GitBash installation. You cannot run command.com inside it so DOS commands aren't available when using it but you've got instead the Unix shell ones. It's really nice for working with console tools and files as it's resizable, scrollable, has a configurable backbuffer (set to 10.000 lines for mine), command history, copy/paste and support for drag & drop as well as color schemes.
  7. Yes, having the command console on the folder background menu is the ideal place IMO so this a nice shell extension for those who want only command.com there. I have command.com as well as 4DOS, win95cmd and Mintty in the folder background menu via Open++ shell extension.
  8. https://www.petri.com/add_command_prompt_here_shortcut_to_windows_explorer 4DOS is a well known and well regarded command.com replacement but for working with command line tools my I much prefer a bash environment with Mintty as the front-end/terminal.
  9. Curl and associated files go in the same folder as the AWGG executable. AWGG has no help file but is pretty straightforward to use. Curl has built-in help which can be displayed by running it using using the --help argument. AWGG runs with default KernelEx settings and curl requires 2K compatibility mode (with KernelEx 4.5.2). You can set curl as the default download engine in the AWGG options (original default is wget I think).
  10. uGet runs fine for me but unfortunately aria2c doesn't, even old versions not dependent on bcrypt.dll. Best and most recent command line download tool for 9x using KernelEx would be latest Win XP build of curl by corone at https://rwijnsma.home.xs4all.nl/files/other/ AWGG 0.5.0 can be used as GUI front end for it. https://www.videohelp.com/software/AWGG
  11. I have now tried these python runtimes compiled for vanilla 98, they fail similarly with KernelEx disabled and don't do anything with KernelEx enabled as far as youtube-dl is concerned, assuming they are buggy. Python.dll from official Python 2.7 is dependent on msvcr90.dll and so requires KernelEx to run, there is no point trying to make hybrid installations, it won't work. Wget works on some but not all difficult SSL sites using the --no-check-certificate argument. ZoomPlayer Basic is a great free (DirectShow) multimedia player IMHO and current version may still support vanilla 98.
  12. Youtube-dl.exe has been compiled with Python 3 since a little while now and doesn't even run on my WinME system which has KernelEx. These executables do not require an installed python runtime btw. However latest youtube-dl source (a bundle of python scripts with __main__.py as the executable) is still fully compatible (and likely to remain so) with python 2.6 and 2.7 and I run it without issues with the latest python 2.7. That's why I thought you might be able to run it too with those python runtimes compiled for vanilla 98.
  13. You could try youtube-dl with one of the python builds in this topic: https://msfn.org/board/topic/162317-python-27-for-windows-95/
  14. Latest GNGR doesn't want to run because, it says, it is more than 6 months old. Latest Lobo Evolution runs but it's still in the pre-alpha stage IMO, nothing really useable for now. For the Sourceforge timer, click on the "Problem Downloading?" button and you'll get a page with a direct link to your file. I don't need to resort to the PSAPX trick to run Java 7 or 8 on my system but then I only have a very old KernelEx + KexStubs installed.
