Try disabling EMS in launchpad, or running VDMSound manually if you don't have launchpad (if run manually, i.e. dosdrv.exe and whatever_game.exe in one regular DOS box, there is no EMS).

The game still freezes...

But thx for the help

maybe it helps if I tell you what should be seen then...

There should be a 2D house like in MADTV with music and some characters but the sound freezes (the game hangs up without sound, too) and the only thing I can see is the mouse courser...
