I've been trying this for a while and can't get it to work.
Does anyone ever manage to get cannon fodder to work on your DOS PC with the MT32?
It crashes the computer every time.

The MT-32 music in Cannon Fodder does not work in DOSBox when cycles are too high; e.g. the music works at 8000 cycles but not at 10000 cycles. So, on a real system you may need to slow things down: turn off turbo mode (if applicable), disable CPU cache, use slowdown utilities, etc.
