I’ve been wanting to play The Secret of Monkey Island, but my floppy disks are corrupt as mentioned on another thread:
I’ve been unable to source disk images, and I purchased the VGA version on CD as a result.
Note, original hardware throughout.
I cannot get any sound out of this game, I’ve tried the I, A, S, R attibutes for audio on two different PCs, both of which output sound on other games. The PC’s I’ve tried this on are:
DOS: Pentium 75 (caches disabled~386 speeds), SB16 (IRQ7), MT-32, 8MB
DOS: Pentium 100, S3 Virge DX, AWE64 (IRQ5), MT-32, 32MB
Two things of note, when I use the S attribute, I hear a click from the speakers, as if the sound card initializes, but no music. When I use the R attribute, the MT-32 displays ‘Lucasarts’ but then nothing. I know the CD version has CD audio, but my understanding was you could still override this and play sound from hardware, rather than off the disk. Any ideas what’s going on?
DOS: P75, SB32, Adlib, 8MB
DOS: P100, S3 Virge DX, AWE64, 32MB
98SE: P233MMX, Rage128Pro, AWE64, 128MB
98SE: P3-1Ghz, Voodoo3, SBLive, 256MB
98SE: Athlon3200+, X850pro, Audigy2ZS, 512MB
2K: P4 3.4G, 6800XT, Audigy2, 1GB
XP: i7-975, GTX570, X-Fi, 3GB
