Sorry. Roland MT-32 sounds better, as most people proabably figured out.

Use Adlib for best sound support.

Game is now fully functional. Keyboard glitch is a thing of the past, and performance is fine.
keyboard error (2004-05-21 01:55) caesarbear
The keyboard glitch mentioned seems to be a fault of the copy of Covert Action in circulation at Abbandonware sites and not of DOSBox.

Working at 99.9%. Graphics no longer garbled, but keyboard problems persist. Jump mode is always on, and unless you hold the shift key at the begining of the break-in, your stuck in that mode. Normally, you hold the shift-key down to get into jump mode, and you use the numeric keypad (numlock off) as 8-way directional control. Game works perfect otherwise.

It seems to be working 99%
There are minor bugs like:
When you are going to do a break-in, you have to hold Shift in order to control your character. Normally, you have to hold shift to be in "jump-mode", but now he is in jumpmode all the time, unless you hold Shift.
Another bug is that the intro graphics -among other graphics- are a bit garbled.
