The same two problems affect PocketPC port. Despite it being Win32 system,
does not have MIDI implementation. I think we should get some basic sound
using only digital audio, no MIDI, no external tools. I would not mind even
if sound
is not 100% perfect, it cannot possibly be worse than the old SoundBlaster.
PocketPC has some command line but use of it very cumbersome. I just added
dialog. The only problem is that the list of supported game is not well
exposed. There
is that structure version_settings in scummvm.cpp which has enough info to
create nice
game selection dialog on the fly. I would suggest providing the list of game
and file names
through the interface.
