i cannot hear anything!!
« on: May 17, 2004, 07:27:58 PM »
ive been having a problem with sounds. on my new computer (windows xp) i cannot get any sound...that is, i can get sound from other games like unreal tournament 2003 or and other thing...but things like quest for glory are sadly silent. i had tried to figure out the problem for some time, but have not made any progress.
i wonder, is this a similar problem anyone else has encountered and/or solved?
thanks doan

I attached a zip with few SCI sound drivers in my post there. Try these.

hey thanks eigen,
unfortunately there was only one driver that worked (kind of). the gm.drv gave me sound, but it was really choppy and off.
when i tried the mpumap.drv i got a message "patch 380 not found" what is that?

I get this message too. Probably that your soundcard is not suitable for it...maybe.  :-\

Have you tried FreeSCI, it has quite a good sound system that should work for you.

download this an unpack it to your game folder. But for some reason, when you have fan-made game, or anything based on the template, the save and restore doesn't work.

If you are going to run DOS games on Windows 2k or XP you really should install VDMSound. http://vogons.zetafleet.com/viewtopic.php?t=2071

Try VDMSound.  It's a driver-like program which allows command prompts in Windows NT flavored OSes (NT 4?, 2000, XP, 2003, etc) which allows audio to be played (through MPU-401/SoundBlaster 16 emulation, I believe).  It's simple enough to download and install, but in order to use a program with it, you must right-click on the program, and select "Use with VDMSound..." or something like that.  Check their documentation for more details.
