    hey... I got that XG Player thing..
    The best XG player I know of is Yamaha's Softsynth.

    http://www.yamaha.co.uk/xg/html/midplug/m_mid8.htm

    only one problem... no sound at all plays in this prog..¿
    I got timidy too Zandro. but I think that one requires you to install your own separate synthfont things in it to play. ¿
    thanks again
    ~Peace~

    Right, you must use SoundFonts for those players. The great thing about these programs is that you do not need a SoundFont-compatible card to play MIDI files with SoundFonts. Most SoundFonts are free, including Frank Wen's Fluid, which can be downloaded at http://www.fluidfonts.com/

    You do have to have at least a sound card. You also have to select the S-YXG50 as the default MIDI music playback device. In Windows XP: Start->Control Panel->Sound, Speech, & Audio Devices->Sounds & Audio Devices->Audio tab->Midi Music Playback (select Yamaha XG SoftSynthesizer). Check the volume control, etc. HTH.
