I got KQVII working in DOSBox, but I'm having trouble figuring out the optimal settings, specifically as it relates to the CPU settings.
For example, when I leave everything on auto, it runs ok, but then the sound glitches heavily especially when the two rabbits run across the screen at the beginning of the game.
If I set the core to normal or dynamic and the cycles to around 10000, the sound glitches are mostly gone, but I can still hear a faint glitch when the second bunny jumps across the screen. The cycles have to be around 5000 or so in order to not hear any sound glitches during the beginning sequence.
The only problem with this is that setting the cycles to 10000 and below slows the game down quite a bit. ESPECIALLY when I hit "Continue Old Game" from the main screen, it takes FOREVER before I can actually click "Play Game" because it waits until the screen fully fades in before it lets you click on anything. If the cycles are on max or even around 20-30000 this games much quicker and is much more tolerable, but around 5000 cycles it is just ridiculous in how long it takes.
So, what kind of CPU settings offer the best compromise between performance and sound glitches? Or is there a way to have fast performance without sound glitches?
