: try shutting off all sound. select none for your sound card. if it works now, then you know that it is your sound card. by the way, what brand is your soundcard? often times a sound card that is not made by creative labs (the soundblaster people) isn't fully compatible with older DOS-based games. but for now, just try shutting off the sound, if this works, post a message back up.
Sorry It works fine with the sound off. I checked my sound card, and I have the right soundblasters.The game will say a few words, then it will stop and the game will freeze up. I think it might be a hardware configuration problem. Also, I typrd in the port, and IRQ #'s exactly like my sound card, but when I put the IRQ to 5, like it says in my sound card, the screen will go black and do nothing, or
the game will shut down, and I get an error message saying that this program has performed an illegal opperation. Well, I'm going to follow this link that Nick put up, but if I'm open to any other suggestions!! Thanks!!
