    The work done so far is impressive. It looks like we may end up with one of the best versions of POP2 when the hack is complete. I appreciate the effort that's gone into the hack, its a real improvement in the whole game.

    I'm really liking the improvements made to this unreleased game so far.
    Any chance you can simply rip that faulty sound driver out and replace it with something like GEMS?

    I'm probably not the person you're asking, but maybe I can give some insight.

    Replacing the whole sound driver would be difficult. Not impossible, but probably too difficult to be worthwhile. You'll have to do a lot of work to re-create the music within a new driver like GEMS or SMPS, and also deal with sound effects. You can usually make the most improvements by swapping the old crappy instruments with better sounding ones. The old driver won't be an issue in this case. Other things like stereo panning and volume levels can also be done within the old driver.

    I did a little work on PoP2's sound somewhere earlier in this thread. I was able to swap instruments and do stereo panning to get some nice improvements. The driver wasn't really a big issue, although sometimes volume levels would get overwritten. Still, it's probably easier to fix those small issues than totally replace the sound driver and re-do all the game's sound.

    But wasn't there that issue with the erratic Total Level values? Or is that fixable outside of the driver?
    Actually I'm a bit curious: was this driver used in any other games other than this prototype?

    Yes, a problem I've had with this game and others is the driver overwriting total level values. Sometimes it just makes instruments too quiet or too loud. Sometimes it totally ruins the sound of the instrument. The culprit seems to be the game trying to make certain instruments louder or quieter with respect to the original instruments. This can cause issues when replacing the old instruments with new ones. This is probably fixable, but would require some investigation to what is triggering the total level changes. You could also just work around the total level changes, using new instruments that aren't as negativity affected by having total levels changed, or are similar enough to the old instruments to not sound wrong.

    I'm not sure what driver this game uses. If I remember right, the original PoP on GEN/MD used the GEMS driver, but PoP2 might use a different one. Somebody might have noted the sound driver of PoP2 earlier in this thread somewhere.
