Copyright (c) 1990 Tsung Hu.
All rights reserved.
Play Adlib ROL and Sound Blaster CMF music files and ZIP files
that contain ROL and CMF music files.
Adlib music card with the Sound Driver SOUND.COM installed or
Sound Blaster music card.
90K to 150K bytes free memory is required depending on the number
of music files in the directory.
MuchMusic is a DesqView-aware software.
Setting up the environment variables
MuchMusic uses several environment variables to locate
the music files. Once the variables are set up, you
can run MuchMusic at any directory without any parameter.
The following commands should be put in your AUTOEXEC.BAT.
SET ROL= indicates the directory where the Adlib ROL music file is.
SET CMF= indicates where the Sound Blaster CMF music file is.
SET BNK= indicates where the Adlib BNK instrument bank is.
SET MMUNZIP= indicates where the PKUNZIP is.
All directories must end with an '\', for example,
During the setup, if AUTOEXEC.BAT reports 'not enough environment
space', you should put the SHELL command in your CONFIG.SYS. For
SHELL=\COMMAND.COM /p /e:1200
increase the environment space to 1200 bytes.
MM [rolfile] [cmffile] [bnkfile] [zipfile] [/a] [/b]
Default is ROL and CMF files of the current directory or the
directory indicated by the SET ROL= and SET CMF= environment
variables. \ must be the last character in these variables. For
example, you can put the following lines in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
If no ROL or CMF is in the directory, ZIP files in the directory
are searched. As a result, just
in the DOS command line includes all ROL file in C:\ROL\ and
CMF file in C:\CMF\. If there is no ROL or CMF, all ZIP file
in C:\ROL\ and C:\CMF\ are included for ROL and CMF file.
[rolfile] and [cmffile] can be any valid path name. If no
extension is given, both ROL and CMF files will be searched.
includes all ROL and CMF in the MUSIC directory. Multiple
directories can be specified. For example,
MM \ROL\*.ROL \MUSIC\*.ROL \CMF\*.CMF
includes all ROL files in ROL and MUSIC directory and CMF
files in the CMF directory.
[bnkfile] is a Adlib instrument bank. Default bank is the
STANDARD.BNK in the current directory or the directory
indicated by the SET BNK= environment variable. For example,
uses the MYBANK.BNK instrument bank instead of the standard
bank. If the standard instrument bank is not on the current
directory, you can put the following lines in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
assuming that the STANDARD.BNK is in the C:\ROL\ directory.
[zipfile] is a ZIP compressed file which contains ROL or CMF
music file. You must have PKUNZIP.EXE in the current
directory, a directory indicated by the SET PATH= environment
variable or the directory indicated by the SET MMUNZIP=
environment variable. For example, you can put the following
lines in your AUTOEXEC.BAT
To play ROL or CMF inside a ZIP file, you can rum
or MM ROL.ZIP \MUSIC\CMF.ZIP
However, the STANDARD.BNK inside the ZIP file is NOT used.
You can also mix the [rolfile] and [cmffile] with the
[zipfile] parameter. For example,
MM *.ROL *.CMF \MUSIC\*.ZIP
[/a] option forces MuchMusic to check for Adlib Music Card
