Telavar’s Ultima Music (for xu4)

A collection of upgrade packages for the PC version of Ultima 4 that adds VGA graphics support (256 colors), the original score from the Apple and Commodore versions of the game, hotkeys, and frame-limiting to keep the game speed normal on fast systems.

The upgrade began as two parts: Aradindae Dragon’s Music Machine, and Wiltshire Dragon’s Graphics Package. The final upgrade package is a combination of their efforts, although the Music Machine can be obtained as a standalone download.

The Exodus Project, meanwhile, contributed an Alternate Music Pack, which adds reworked versions of the various songs in its soundtrack to Ultima 4 (and it is also compatible with xu4). Voyager Dragon has also made MIDI and MP3 recordings of the music available.

As well, there is a fourth download available: Hurin has reworked the Graphics Package to make it compatible with xu4, correcting issues with how xu4 displays the base terrain and the game’s HUD in the VGA-ALLPNG video mode. Hurin also devised a fix for the errors xu4 makes when displaying the endgame sequence in the VGA-ALLPNG mode.
