I decided to boot up some KQ7 today and during the intro sequence, something struck me as odd, as I seemed to remember hearing Valanice talk at the beginning, saying something like "where am I?" and then something about finding her child. Well, for whatever reason, not only do I not hear a voice, but there is no talking animation.
Originally I had switched over to SC-55 but I changed back to sound blaster pro for testing, and sound effects were also set on sound blaster. Here's my DOSBox conf file, if necessary. Also, for reference, I have one of the collection cds which I used with Collector's installers to install this game, so it should have whatever patches he included with it. Is this some setting I may have changed and simply am making an oversight, or is something else going on here?
Edit: Found the answer. Reinstalling the game with Collector's installer fixed the problem, so I looked at differences between the older version that wasn't working, and the fresh install. In the older version's resource.cfg, I found this line:
resAUD = <INSTALL>\aud
Instead, it should be
resAUD = .\
I have no idea how this changed as I certainly never manually changed this line. Could this have been done by playing around in the setup program when I was changing music/sound drivers or something like that? I don't see how; it doesn't give me any options to change directories... Anyways, problem solved, but if anyone has a theory as to how this might've changed I'd be glad to hear it. I did also install these midi fixes after using Collector's installer, but doing this didn't cause the voices to stop working.
