Many games utilising the WAIL middleware have issues running on Windows 7/10. People have been able to find replacement versions of the same file which work fine, for a particular game. However, that's not always the case for every game.
MechWarrior 2 Pentium Edition and Titanium Trilogy share the same fate, the 'WAIL32.DLL' that the game uses doesn't cooperate properly with Vista+ 'WINMM.DLL'. It was difficult for me to find a replacement 'WAIL32.DLL' or edit it to work properly, so I instead got a 'WINMM.DLL' that works fine with the game. By editing every entry of 'WINMM.DLL' with 'newfile.dll' (working 'WINMM.DLL') inside 'WAIL32.DLL', I got the game to run and was able to PLAY MISSIONS for the first time with Windows 10/7. This isn't the only game having issues. Mayan The Pitfall Adventure, Deadlock 1 have issues for this file (while the former got fixed).
However things didn't go all right, as the music worked but there was no sound effect or speech voice. So my technique was flawed. So I believe that unless I get a replacement supported 'WAIL32.DLL', I have to patch it someway to make the game work fine. I need guidance to start this work.
