I quite like gzdoom.sf2 and I'm going to use it by default simply because most people will, I guess. However, I also have a soundfont file called TimGM6mb.sf2 which I got after wildweasel talked about it ( viewtopic.php?f=35&t=55379&p=980744&hil ... mb#p980744 ). Personally, I think it sounds better but it is nearly twice the size of gzdoom.sf2 so I guess it's not really suitable for inclusion in the distribution.Nash wrote:Also gzdoom.sf2 is missing.
Might it be an idea for the Wiki to be updated to somehow list suitable, tried and tested soundfonts (perhaps with brief reviews for each one)? I know that there is lots of information about sound fonts and various links on the wiki but there isn't a nice, simple, easily accessible list that just has links to specific sound fonts that are known to work well with *zdoom. (At least I couldn't find one.) I know there are links to forum threads but, again, they aren't a nice simple list and you have to trawl through quite a few posts to get the information that you need. A simple list in the wiki might help the uninitiated user to quickly get themself sorted out with a good soundfont. I know it took me a while to work out and find what I needed.
Also, is there any way of having a soundfont menu within *zdoom? I don't even know if that is technically possible but if you were using Timidity, Fluidsynth, etc then a menu item that allowed you to cycle through sound fonts in a specified directory would be very nice. I don't know if *zdoom has that kind of file-finding capability?
