I'm having a few issues with trying to get the Secret of Monkey Island to run on my Am486DX4. The version that I have is on Floppy, and has both the 5.25" and 3.5" floppy sets.
I've tried installing the game using both sets of floppies. I had no issues during the install and disks read OK. When launching the game at first, it worked, but the sound was extremely distorted. (My Sound Card is a Sound Blaster Pro 2.0, but it did the same thing when I swapped it for a SB16)
I tried running the game using the "MONKEY V A" command, but all that did was cause the game to crash saying "DIVIDE BY ZERO" with some numbers, and had to restart the machine.
I found a patch that is supposed to fix the sound and divide by zero issues (due to my use of a 486), located on the Lucasarts website.
I applied the patch as instructed, by replacing the games main EXE with the patched EXE. However, now when I run the game, all I get is "ILLEGAL BLOCK TYPE", and the game exits.
This is a fairly popular DOS game, has anyone run accross this issue in the past? Is there an alternative patch?
