VDMSound 2.1

Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow & the Flame: v1.1

-- In Windows XP game display freeze when played with VDMSound 2.1 at opening of cave scene, with Soundblaster and Midi sound on. Tried different configurations invain.

-- But using DOSBox 0.72, editing Dosbox.conf at [cpu], cycles=max made the game playable with Soundblaster and midi sound on.

-- Wish POP2 would play with VDMSound since the Sound is out-of-the-world when using it.

Hope the VDMSound guys will look into this when they have time.

VDMSound is dead. Long live DOSBox.

Make sure that you are using the proper sound card settings.

I think what wd was trying to say is,
Why are you trying to run Prince of Persia 2 with VDMSound when it runs perfectly in DOSBox? I'm curious too.

VDMSound employs the Windows built-in DOS emulator, which is not great.

Sounds and music are awesome in DOSBox, too, without the pain of the NTVDMS and speed/compatibility issues.
