Kyrandia settings: Tried this with both Sound Blaster Pro and Sound Blaster.
In Windows 98, Kyrandia hangs shortly after a voice clip starts playing, and usually only plays the first part of the voice clip. In DOS, the full clip plays and then the game crashes, at which point the PC speaker plays a loud, constant tone until I hit the power button.
This does not happen if I turn off voices in Options (or, in the case of DOS, just remove the set blaster line to force them to not play). (I could definitely play through this with the voices off, really. I'm mostly just curious about why this isn't working).
I've tried using Throttle to drop speed down to about 12.5% in Windows, which didn't help. I have not tried using setmul to disable cache as this generally seem to make things too slow to be really usable (unless this works better from DOS?)
For booting into DOS, I did try swapping out himem.sys for himemx.exe and using the /max=8194 switch with it, which didn't help either.
Also tried using both 5 and 7 as the IRQ and got the same issue.
(Kyrandia 2 seems to work fine in both DOS and Windows. No idea if that's really relevant though).
