Unregistered said:-type wc-i and set up the sound accordingly"
I did get the installer to run in DOSBOX and it tested my system and I got sound,
which was exciting, and even the voice test went fine, video was fine, I adjusted the background color.
I chose the midi setting and also sound blaster 16 as people had instructed,
and when the set up was finished, i tried typing in WC3 but got a prompt on red saying:
"Wing Commander III could not start up your digital sound card. Please check the install settings etc."
I think i made a mistake in the SAVE directory as I entered a SAVE after the
WC3, and I may not have mounted my c: directory and hard drive correctly in DOS Box
I typed in:
mount c: c:\WC3\
and then c:
I tried using defend and the game starts up fine but still no sound? Is there an obvious next step I can take?
I have an AMD 3300 system, XP PRO SP2, 400 GB Hard Drive, 1.5 GB RAM,
Audigy 2ZS snd card, GeForce 6600 Vid card with 256 RAM, 2.5~ghz system.
I am getting closer but havent made it yet.
I saw detailed info to enter into the DOSBOX config but am not sure how to do that yet, as I am just learning DOSBOX along with this all, any help most greatly appreciated.
I set the game up this thread has instructed and the game worked but was unable to play any movie scenes and the sound fx did not work either. Does anyone have any idea what this might be caused by. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the reply but to be more specific. It is the MS DOS version of Wing commander 3 so not Saga or a windows version. It is also not pirated. I have played this before on older operating machines eg Dos and the entire game ran without any difficulties.
Pentium 4 equiv, 2.00 GHz, 512 MB RAM using Windows XP home edition. I added my DxDiag if that is of any help...
First off thanks for the info, Wc3 runs fine except for this one minor sound problem. You see while i was playing the game i heard this wierd clicking sound in the background. Otheir than that the game runs fine; no stabillity issues so far. However the clicking sound is real annoying and is keeping me from playing. Anyways thanks for the help and thanks for the info.
Thanks for the quick answer, and yes i did lower the hardware acceleration setting.However im still having the same problem. It might have something to do with the VDMS sound emulator. I'll go check the vdms forums and see what i can find out.
P.S i have a Sound Blaster audigy 4
