Since I built my 486 PC, I have been having problem's with JotJ's digital sound effects. The card I am using is a Sound Blaster 16 CT-1750 ASP w/DSP 4.05. Look here for the rest of the system specs :
I had previously removed the Ultrasound, so it should not be an issue. I have also removed the Roland and the NIC without effect. I have tried booting with the bare minimum in AUTOEXEC.BAT and CONFIG.SYS.
In short, the problem is that whenever a digital sound effect plays, it sounds like growling. I can hear something of the true sound effect, but most of it is buried underneath the awful noise. The card in question has been tested and does not exhibit any problems in any other game I have yet tried. The music plays just fine.
The JotJ Trilogy version exhibits this problem, all three episodes. The standalone versions of Jill 2-3 I tried also exhibit the problem. The shareware versions of JotJ1, 1.0 and 1.2, do not exhibit this problem, but sometimes the sound effects randomly go silent for a period of time.
