Allow an option to play synth-based sound effects (via midi such as OPL / MT-32) instead of just downloadable digital sound packs

E.g. various sound effects during the intro play back in the original or under dosbox, but not in Exult

I'm lodging this request mainly because I have an MT-32 so I'd like to see that used as the original does

One could always play it under dosbox but the various UI, window size and speed tweaks available in Exult are great for gameplay

    This is somewhat working already - the ambient background tracks (wind, crickets,...) get played by ogg and midi devices if conversion is set to mt32 or fake-mt32.

    The intro is a different beast and we do some sysex wrong there. Some bug reports are already pending for someone to take a look... for years now :(
