Thank you for your patience.
I will try to rename that filename containing space (though it can be escaped in Timidity++ config file).

However, I have no idea where the Changelog.txt and Readme.rtf stored. It seems that MuseScore provided a version even newer than that from Hammersound. Since MuseScore did not zip the Changelog along with the soundfont. I cannot provide any information on changelog.
