I’m not sure how many people here are familiar with the Hamster RPG engine, OHRRPGCE: An RPG toolkit written in Freebasic. I use it for years both to play as well and develop games, and now I need help with an issue which seems to be specific to Manjaro.
I can compile the engine just fine from its SVN repository via scons. The problem is that in order to get support for MIDI music, you need to install a library named Timidity. I already did this and the timidity command is recognized in the console… for some reason however, MIDI files are still silent in OHR itself after a clean recompile. This didn’t use to happen on openSUSE and only started after I changed distros to Manjaro. Could anyone help me out with this please?
In addition I have another Timidity related issue: The default soundfont is very ugly. I’d always install a custom sound font called Eawpats. However I cannot find a package for it in Manjaro! Does anyone know if there’s an easy way to install it, ideally as an user so I don’t have to manually modify any root / OS files without using an installed package?
