    Hello again, world! I've got a question, in case anybody's actually looking at this corner of the forums.

    The abovementioned-by-me LotRO MIDI Player stopped working a little while ago--some Java issue? I haven't totally given up on it, but I thought I'd try to get MIDI2KEY to work, since it seems so straightforward. But I can't--or rather, I can't get the three-octave version of things to work.

    I have, of course, taken one of the existing three-octave configuration files and renamed it to MIDI2KEY.ini. But no joy: it seems like the program sticks with its default configuration no matter what. I expect I'm missing something--but what?

    Edit: You know what? I think I got it. In case anyone's as obtuse as me: I forgot that, in Windows 10, changing the extension of a file's some kind of tricky endeavor. If you, for example, just rename a file from "MIDI2KEY.kwee_3" to "MIDI2KEY.ini," you've accomplished precisely nothing, since you haven't actually done a thing with the extension. Which means, in this particular case, that you've just got a file called "MIDI2KEY.ini.ini," which of course MIDI2KEY won't recognize as a new configuration file to use at all. Duhh. Fixed now.

    Surprised people still use this. heh For those that don't know, there was once a time when LOTRO did not support .abc file playback and the only way to play music was "live" using your keyboard. That's where this came from.

    Anyway, I can't edit the original post anymore, but just came here to say that I found and subsequently put the source--such as it is--up on github.com.

    I, at least, am still using this guy! In fact I've really only newly begun to use it: I used to use a different bit of software to play live, but it seems not to be compatible with recent versions of Java. Or something; I really have no idea.

    Anyhow, I have a question, just in case you're still watching this thread.

    I feel like MIDI2KEY is a little less sensitive than the app I used to use, Lotro MIDI Player. That is . . . I suppose you'd say, its minimum interval between key/note presses seems a bit bigger than Lotro MIDI Player's, such that I can't play as quickly. Could be my imagination, but I don't think so. There are some possible reasons for this in the in-game settings, but I think I've eliminated the ones I know about: I'm in low latency mode, and I don't have "quantize player music" on. And--huh, OK. I notice that I can hit actual QWERTY keyboard keys and get notes much more quickly than MIDI2KEY allows me to. So it does seem to be something in the app, not something in LotRO.

    So--any ideas why that'd be? Is it just some weird unknowable thing? Is there some throttling that MIDI2KEY does? An issue with my keyboard (but, like I said, I don't think I had this problem before)? Something that can be tweaked somehow?

    FWIW, I've now gotten LotRO MIDI Player behaving again. It does indeed take faster input, note.

    I still think MIDI2KEY is awesome, even if I've wound up not using it at the moment! Just posting this in case NolaquenTaurina sees my question above and feels a need to go digging around in the code.
