Hi guys,

Did anyone manage to force the first Prehistorik game to use the SB Live 5.1 SB0100 card with SB16 emulation?
I'm trying to run it in Windows 98 SE MS-DOS (restart in MS-DOS mode) with the live dos drivers (liveinit) and the game freezes at the splash screen (I have the same behavior if I try to run it directly from Win 98). Other games like Duke3D, Prince, Lion King are working properly, with sound.
If I don't load the sound drivers, Prehistorik loads, but defaults to PC Speaker.
There doesn't seem to be any sound configuration available for Prehistorik, the settings are probably hardcoded.

System info (just in case):
MB: Chaintech 6BJM0-D100A (Intel 440BX chipset)
CPU: Intel Celeron 500 MHz
RAM: 256 MB
VGA: Voodoo 3 3000 AGP

Nope. Run game with R cmd-line argument or just delete GRAWAGA.CFG and voilà.

Thank you very much, I totally forgot about it!
It's working perfectly now with any emulation (SB / MT-32 / Adlib).
Just in case anyone has the same problem, for the sound blaster configuration I also had to download this file in the game folder: http://www.vogonsdrivers.com/getfile.php?fileid=392
