Hi folks. I set up a DOSBox (0.74) to boot to DOS and it works perfectly ... with one exception.
A game I really love isn't playing the sounds quite right. The music comes through fine, but the sound effects are using the PC Speaker emulation.
When I attempt to activate the SoundBlaster in the game, it keeps telling me that I need at least 100K of EMS memory.
I tried adding the Himem.sys and emm386.exe lines to the config.sys, but the game still doesn't recognize it. (DOS 6.22 reports that they load just fine.)
Once upon a time (back when I had a real Win95 system) the sound effects played just fine. I haven't been able to reproduce that. I've also had similar problems with other games, so it's not just this one game.
Has anyone else run into this? Is there a workaround or even maybe a real solution?
