Ultima 3 MIDI Music

The MIDI music from the Ultima 3 Upgrade, for your listening pleasure.

Another of Voyager Dragon’s excellent upgrade packages, this patch for Ultima 3 adds MIDI music and numerous new graphics modes to the MS-DOS version of the game, including:

  • 256-colour VGA
  • 16-colour EGA
  • 16-colour Composite CGA and…
  • 4-colour CGA

Here are a handful of comparison images:

Previously, these were benefits enjoyed by Apple & Commodore players only. Additionally, the upgrade adds new hotkeys to the game to allow for easier game restores, menu access, and exiting; the game’s autosave feature can also be disabled. Also included is a frame limiter, so that the game doesn’t run overly fast on modern systems. And with version 3.1, the upgrade also replaces the numeric moon phases with actual moon phase graphics!
