Hi! First, I'd like to say THANK YOU for keeping Vavoom alive <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> It's been a few years since I last actually played any of the old ID games, but I recently got a new(ish) computer (upgrade from an old P2 to an AMD XP2100) and saw the announcement for the latest milestone release of Vav on happypenguin, so I thought I'd revisit those old games and see if they'd run on this box. Happy to say they do <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> I'd like to make a feature request however. I had to dig through the src to find out where vavoom's implementation of timidity is looking for it's timidity.cfg and the patch sound files. It would be very helpful if the timidity.cfg and midi patch file paths could be specified in either a configure option at compile time, or even better, in one of the vavoom cfg files. I should also note, before getting the midis to work by recompiling with the right pathnames, I was getting a whole heck of a lot of crashes in Hexen at least (divide by zero error once, several segfaults), didn't test other games much..I'll be sure to come back with bug reports if I encounter any more crashes <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> Thanks again guys and keep up the good work and stuff <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

The path to the timidity.cfg is specified using console variable s_timidity_patches which is saved in your config file.

Copying or linking timidity.cfg to vavoom's root directory seems to work well also. Example:
cd /usr/local/share/vavoom
ln -s /etc/timidity/timidity.cfg

Yes, it does.
