Hello all,

Hope no one minds me posting quite a few questions lately! This is another random question. When I was at secondary school in the 90s, the IT tech guy showed us how you could get Lemmings music playing in the F12 command line. Did anyone else ever do this? There was some kind of command he used, followed by a number and different numbers would have presumably looked up a different section of whatever music file it was playing.

It was a random thing to do, and I just wondered if anyone else ever did this?

Why would you want it to play from the command line? Grab a tracker player (DigitalCD may work on RO3.1, otherwise look for PDTracker, RiscTracker or similar) and play the music files in the desktop!

Also, if you are determined to do it that way for nostalgia value or whatever, you could do Ctrl-F12 and get a multitasking window containing the Supervisor (the "command line"), rather than single-tasking your whole desktop environment just to play music.

Ctrl+F12, shall have to remember that one. Cheers!

I just stumbled upon the answer to this question in Eureka 4 page 23:

*RMLoad ADFS::0.$.!Lemmings.MusMod2
*MUSLOAD ADFS::0.$.!Lemmings.Lemmings.LemLevels.LemMus0
*MUSON

Is there a MusMod2 version that actually works on an Armini/BB machine? Natively or under Aemulor.

Awesome, nice one! That look kinda familiar, especially from what I read in the pdf. I'm glad I didn't imagine it!

IIRC http://www.archifishal.co.uk/~aardvark/prohosting/downloads/patches/musmod.zip is Risc PC/StrongARM compatible, so will likely work OK under Aemulor, but you'd have to try it and see.

I tested this yesterday and it worked beautifully, just as I remembered doing it. Thanks for the heads up! Nostalgia mode engaged
