My favorite all-time game is Space Quest 2. I have always played it on dosbox and loved it. However, recently, I downloaded scummvm (yes, I know I'm posting in a "dosbox" forum), and saw that it supported AGI games, so I tried running sq2 on it just for kicks.
To my surprise, the audio in the game sounded very different! The first thing I obviously noticed was the title song that plays right when you start the game. It sounded.. "synthesized", not like it was coming out of an internal computer speaker in an old machine. In other words, the audio sounded "better" than what I heard while playing in dosbox. In fact, I even heard sweeping sounds from Roger's broom (when he's sweeping outside the space station at the first of the game) that I had never heard before!
I'm guessing that this has something to do with my sound card configuration in dosbox or something to that effect.. I'm not sure. I play other games with dosbox (like King's Quest VI) and it sounds fine... How do I get the same kind of "complex" sound from dosbox while playing space quest 2 that I heard while playing scummvm?
