Sound problems in World of Xeen

Postby Secret_Holder » Nov 24 2007, 21:36

I've been playing WoX on DosBox, and not all the sounds are working.
The music and effects are fine, but I can't here some of the speech, for example in the intros.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

That depends, probably, on how's your DOSBOX and WoX configured. Check if the game is configured by the same rule as you will see after DOSBOX launch, usually SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 T4 (may differ based on which card you are emulating, sometimes may help to reassign IRQ but since it's not true DOS the problem must been in the game)

The safest DOSBox emulation seems to be SoundBlaster for both settings. Getting too fancy on the settings can cause issues, though I've enjoyed a different setting for really good music.
I'd rather be part bull than a complete sheep.
