I recently got Virtual PC 5.2, set it up with MS-DOS 6.22, and installed Crusader No Remorce and No Regret. I have both games running okay, (no mouse support- haven't set it up) but the sound in the games is choppy, full of static, and skips horribly. I also have to turn up my volume to 3 times normal just to be able to hear anything in the games.
I get sound when the install peraminters are set to Sound Blaster 16 or Sound Blaster AWU 32 (sometimes I will get sound when they are set to Sound Blaster or Sound Blaster Pro but sometimes all I get is a load constant beep). I get no sound when the sound is set to Ensoniq or Gravis.
I have no sound related entries in my Config.sys or Autoexec.bat.
I am using my onboard Nvidia N-Force 2 audio hardware. I tried running it on my Pentium II 350 Mhz with a Sound Blaster PCI 128 and in the install the music seemed fine (very hard to tell in the install) but the computer is just to slow to open the game. My friend has both Crusaders working on his machine and reports no sound problems using his Audigy 2.
I searched the forums for Crusader and looked for any mention of problems such as this only finding one but it was not elaborated upon. Sorry if I missed it, but at least I looked.
Any suggestions or thoughts would be appreiciated. If I can't fix it I guess I could try to get my old Pentium 75 Laptop into its dos mode and try that, but if I remember its sound it broken (dropped one to amny times- I didn't do it). If that dosen't work I guess I can get and audigy but that will take some time.
