Notes

  • The HMP music files contain the version 2 HMP header (HMIMIDIP013195) However, they appear to have a different formatting than standard HMP files.
  • This game is one of the few 3DFX-enabled title if not the only one, to have Glide libraries statically linked. In consequence, none of the emulators/tools such as DOSBox or NGlide can run the 3DFX version.
