A soundfont to be used with DLS compatible MIDI devices, including the
fmodapi package from

This is a General MIDI soundfont designed to sound like the PlayStation,
specifically the game "Final Fantasy 8". It sounds pretty good with Doom
source ports, too (zdoom, gzdoom, and skulltag support FMOD).

To use with zdoom, gzdoom, or skulltag, set the MIDI device
to FMOD from the in-game Options menu, and set the variable
snd_midipatchset=/usr/share/sounds/dls/ff8.dls in the game console or
the config file.

This requires: unrar
