Paul Wilkinson (NES Driver)
Paul had originally started with The Terminator, writing the music in assembly. When The Adventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle was being developed, he ended up writing a program to convert MIDI files to his sound driver. He would write his MIDI files in Cakewalk for MS-DOS.
It is unknown exactly which game was the first to use Paul's driver, but it was either The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends, or The Terminator, both of which were released at the end of 1992. The last game to use the driver was Mario's Time Machine released in June 1994, making it one of the last drivers to be used in an official NES game.
The driver outputs to the RP2A03 only, as none of the games that used the driver were released outside of North America. The only exception to this is The Terminator, which is said to have had a European release.
