Ultima Patcher 1.62

I’ve updated the Ultima Patcher for the first time in nearly 3 years. This was prompted by Time Machine Dragon contacting me about his improved Ultima 4 music patch (http://sacredbacon.com/ultima/). This swaps the music for modified versions of Minstrel Dragons MIDI files which were in turn based on the mockingboard Apple II soundtrack. These have more voices than the default music included with the VGA patch and can now be swapped in and out directly from the patcher. Note that this will only work correctly with MPU-401 as the sound device.

I’ve included the latest version of the Ultima 3 upgrade (http://exodus.voyd.net/projects/ultima3/). This corrects the PC speaker sound effect speed.

Finally, I’ve added in the current directories that the games are installed to by default in the automatic search so you don’t always have to find the directory manually. GOG seem to insist on moving these directories around for reasons best known to them.

The new version can be download here. As ever, if there is anything else I should include or something that doesn’t work please let me know.

    • The file is ok. I’d try a newer version of 7zip or use winrar instead.
      I may look at changing it to a zip when I get the chance. I got a new version of Winrar the other day when I had a download that wouldn’t open and it doesn’t seem to be backwards compatible.

  1. I just used this to upgrade Ultima 3 Exodus (the GOG version), and everything seems to be working okay except for the title screen. It’s just a big black box where it’s supposed to say “Exodus” in green letters. Is it like this for anyone else?
