  It should transfer Sysex when you see the message 'Initializing the MT-32' but there is no transfer.
 
  I therefore turned off MT32 mode and connected my SC-55 instead.
 
  Just thought I'd let you know that MT32 mode isn't working ;-)

Hi Colin, send me your email address on eab and I'll have a quick look at fixing it.

Can you please help me understand:
What benefit/usage/advantage have these filters?

OpenRA is written in C#. Good luck with getting that to run on Amiga. :P

    Scale2x: EXTERNAL LINK     
    Scale2x is real-time graphics effect able to increase the size of small bitmaps guessing the missing pixels without blurring the images.
   
    It was originally developed for the AdvanceMAME project in the year 2001 to improve the quality of old games with a low video resolution. Derivative Scale3x and Scale4x effects which scale the image of 3x and 4x are also available.
   
    Other interesting effects are HQx and xBR. These effects are a bit slower than Scale2x, but surely in the grasp of modern processors.
   
  No filter:

  Scale2x filter:

Have to say i prefer to not use any of these scalers. Almost always use original with optional scan lines instead.
Dont like the watercolour look alike.
