SimCity 2000 was the squeal to SimCity, and was released to multiple platforms. This article refers to the MS-DOS version.

Making it work

The game includes an INSTALL.EXE which sets the video and sound cards, however for the sound card, it reports a failure to verify the Sound Blaster, and other, cards. Setting the correct IRQ/DMA/port settings does not seem to help.

Please update this article if you have information which will let this game work with sound and music.

Tested on Fedora 9, with repository RPM: dosbox.i386 0.72-4.fc9.
Mouse works fine, but sound and music is lacking.

Tested on Windows XP SP2, with DOSBox 0.72. SC200 V. 1.0 (12/06/04) CD-ROM with Urban Renewal kit. (No CD boot, just install)
Mouse and music worked OK but SFX were lacking. Reseted SFX setup to Sound Blaster Compatile with HEX 220 - IRQ 7 - DMA 1 and it worked! but not all the time, seems to be rather random.
