Beta version of plugin / engine which plays MIDI like past series of RPG Maker.

This version requires original game engine. So only supported for Windows.
But this method can support encryption as normal application. (Including save files)

Note: .mid files are not shown in RPG Maker MV editor.
Placing empty .ogg file of the same name to escape this specification.

----------------------------------------
PLEASE DO NOT RE-DISTRIBUTE THESE BETA FILES.

Notice for beta version:
Firewall warning may be shown when game started.
You can choose "Allow" or "Disallow" either. If game won't run correctly, please select "Allow".

most probably not - because midi-files are NOT audio files.
MIDI is a notation format, which means you'll need a synthesizer to convert the notation into audio - and different computers have different synthesizers.
That was the reason why MIDI was abandoned as soon as the storage limits went high enough to allow for regular audiofiles - the same midi played differently on different computers depending on the quality of the available synthesizers (who were sometimes really cheap and bad).

Sorry, only work for Windows.
Because this uses GM MIDI playing system included in Windows. (Same as RPG Maker XP or older).

Yes, In 2015, this system had critical problem: very very low FPS.
But in 2018, I succeeded in fixing this problem. So I released this in public websites.

That's strange. The midis don't work, just bgm silence in your demo. I'm on Windows and have the program allowed.

read my reply a few posts above. THAT is one of the reasons why MIDIs are disused in modern gaming: the playing of MIDI requires the player's computer to be setup with a synthesizer capable of playing MIDI. Just try to doubleclick any MIDI file - if it doesn't play but asks for a program to use with, then you don't have a synthesizer setup on your computer.

Yes I know. But I assumed it was fine because I've never had a problem since I've always been able to play midis since my computer by default opens the windows media audio player to play them seemingly fine. :LZYdizzy: But yeah, I understand the issues that can come with it. I think instead I'll just try to record the audio with screen capture into a .ogg.
