I've tried many ways to get SQ6 working properly (including the Windows version, but I want the DOS version preferably) and VDMSound, unfortunately, seems to be the only way to run it smoothly enough. Only thing is, the music is just too slow for me. It bugs me to no end (which is why I don't like using VDMSound). I've tried Speedset but whenever I try to run it with the game it crashes before it starts with this in the command prompt:

If I run it without speedset it works fine (save for the annoying slow music). What should I do?

Did you try advanced options for VDMSound, i.e, Cap DOS frequency and such? Also, you could try replacing DOS4GW with DOS32A (Search forum for info)

We've been there and done this before. I've tried gettign this fixed for years. The simple fact is Speedset does nothing for later SCI1/SCI32/VESA games, LSL6 CD and beyond. Works for KQ6CD, about the last one it works for. It certainly doesn't for QFG4, and SQ6 and such. I've never got a straight answer about it, so..
