DOSBox MT-32 screech

When I launch the MT-32 version of DOSBox I get a loud screech untill a game sends its sysex commands to the emulator. When it receives this data it will stop and then behave like it should. What might be causing this? By the way, after comparing your emulator against my real MT-32 with some Sierra …

Re: Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist CD

Sometimes using a different audio driver in sierra's DOS games can lead to problems. If you use one of the updated SoundBlaster drivers from Sierra's FTP for "Conquests of the Longbow" it will cause looping sound. If you use them in "King's Quest V", the sound will be badly distorted and oddly it …

Re: Freddy Pharkas Frontier Pharmacist CD

The GOSiERRA patch is only for getting the driver to initialize in the first place. It should have no effect on how it performs after it starts. In other words, it only gets you past the "Unable to initialize your audio hardware" error message that you get on faster machines. This, of course, should …

Snover, I was not saying that your new design sucks, I did not mean to offend, if I did. I think that the new design will be fine with just a few small tweaks, mostly just to make it a little easier to read, such as by increasing the contrast between the text and background. I am running at …

I think that mostly it just needs to be easier to read. The buttons need to more readable. Also the preformated text (ie Quotes and Code) is very tiny on my machine with Mozilla, my browser of choice. The main text size is OK, but it would be nice if it was darker and/or with a lighter background.

Minimums for SQ6 from the box: MS-DOS 5.0+ WIN 3.1+ 486/25+; 8MB RAM 5MB on Hard Drive 2X CD-ROM,SVGA Mouse This seems to run OK in DOSBox on my system with CPU cycles set at 5000 though the different screens load a little slow. At 10000 cycles it runs like you would want it to, with smooth sound. …

Re: Digital sound output from DOS

in DOS
The 16 bit emulator driver for the Live card does work in pure DOS, though this driver does not seem to work with the newer Live cards. Creative has dropped DOS support. I got my Audigy when it first came out and the 9x driver had the DOS driver, but the Audigy II drivers do not include the DOS …

Re: WinME/Gabriel Knight I

in DOS
If you have the talkie version (ie CD-ROM) then you must also have the Windows version, which should run just fine in Windows ME. If you have the floppy version, then there is no voice track. The opening scene after the paperboy delivers the paper has no voice to start with. Grace walks up, picks up …

Re: dosbox commands

in DOS
That sounds like it's because you are running it from the CD. The game needs to write some temp files and is trying to write to the same directory as the game - in other words, the CD. Try to run it from your hard drive.

Re: Mac games on ScummVM?

I have looked for some kind of HFS driver before, but with little success. I have not looked around lately, so maybe I should try again. Just to get files off a mac disc, I have just used "HFV Explorer", but it does not let Explorer see the files.
