ive been having a problem with sounds. on my new computer (windows xp) i cannot get any sound...that is, i can get sound from other games like unreal tournament 2003 or and other thing...but things like quest for glory are sadly silent. i had tried to figure out the problem for some time, but have not made any progress. |
i wonder, is this a similar problem anyone else has encountered and/or solved?
|collector||Are you using VDMSound?|
|doan sephim||no sir...should i be using that?|
I attached a zip with few SCI sound drivers in my post there. Try these.
hey thanks eigen,|
unfortunately there was only one driver that worked (kind of). the gm.drv gave me sound, but it was really choppy and off.
when i tried the mpumap.drv i got a message "patch 380 not found" what is that?
I get this message too. Probably that your soundcard is not suitable for it...maybe. :-\|
Have you tried FreeSCI, it has quite a good sound system that should work for you.
|doan sephim||i havent tried it. is it a program that runs sci games or something? if so, how does it work?|
download this an unpack it to your game folder. But for some reason, when you have fan-made game, or anything based on the template, the save and restore doesn't work.
|colloector||If you are going to run DOS games on Windows 2k or XP you really should install VDMSound. http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=2071|
to be honest, i couldnt understand the freesci download at all :-\...so i guess i'll just have to live without the music...or maybe hook up some piece of junk computer. in any event thanks for all the help!|
|Nychold||Try VDMSound. It's a driver-like program which allows command prompts in Windows NT flavored OSes (NT 4?, 2000, XP, 2003, etc) which allows audio to be played (through MPU-401/SoundBlaster 16 emulation, I believe). It's simple enough to download and install, but in order to use a program with it, you must right-click on the program, and select "Use with VDMSound..." or something like that. Check their documentation for more details.|
im downloading it now, and i'll give it a go. all this headache b/c i got a new computer ::)
it works! hooray!|
