In the forum someone claimed he solved a problem with
MIDI Music slowing down after 5 secs of playing a game
by putting the "Idle sensitivity" slider for the game
all to the left. These settings are saved in a PIF-
file. I need to run that PIF file with VDMSound but I
cannot invoke it from a DOS-prompt. Please add "Run
with VDMSound" to the context-menu of PIF files.

Regards,
Robert Neumann.

PS: I experienced the problem with "Simon the
Sourcerer 2". The music-speed goes up and down and
finally stays at a very slow pace.

    Hello Rob,
    "Run with VDMS" uses a .pif file itself (VDMSRun.pif in the
    VDMSound directory). Moreover, the "Run with VDMS" .pif
    already has "idle sensitividy" turned to a minimum (all the
    way to the left). So there isn't much more that you can do
    with idle sensitivity. Try to use the "PITSET" utility
    instead. Go in the "Support area" on this site, and look
    for "Slow music".

    Cheers,
    Vlad.

    I have to use my own PIF-file for Simon2 because it needs
    to be started with command-line parameters. So I need to
    start that PIF-file with VDMSound. I see no way to do
    that !?

    Easy - just create a .bat file that calls the game with
    whatever command-line switches it needs, then "Run with
    VDMS" that .bat file. The game's setup program should have
    probably generated this .bat file for you, but you can
    always edit your own.

    Vlad.
