Digitized sound effects through the PC speaker don't work.

I don't think it is a problem with DOSBox. The installer only offers an option between keyboard + joystick, or keyboard only.
It's free! And it works too! (2008-03-26 09:06) MiniMax
The game can be downloaded from Cinemaware's homepage.


It will run fine with a standard DOSBox configuration, but with few modifications it will be even better:

  • The SoundBlaster I/O address and IRQ's must be set to 220,3,1 for sound effects to work. See the README file for more info.

    [sblaster]
    sbbase=220
    irq=3
    dma=1

    When configured correctly, you should be able to hear the comet come crashing down during the intro.

  • It is a real-mode game so it will run slowly in DOSBox 0.72 unless you change the CPU-settings.

    [cpu]
    core=dynamic
    cycles=max 80%

  • And finally, I think it looks really nice with the HQ3X scaler:

    [sdl]
    output=overlay
    windowresolution=1024x768

    [render]
    scaler=hq3x


PS: Changing the game setup is done with the command "DESERT /I".
