Hi! I have and use both DOSBox and DOSBox-X. Now, I have a game for it called Boppin'. Boppin' is fun and has the option to play its in-game music without actually playing the game. The music is different than normal game music. Now, I want to play this music in the background while doing my computer work. However, when I do that, the music skips. This does not occur in the foreground, and my computer is pretty recent. I assume the emulator is not getting enough CPU time for the emulation. The game is a protected mode game, and I use the emulator's default settings. Is there a particular setting that will eliminate this?
