Addendum (2012-07-20 02:52) AliceLR
The SMZX Modes do not work at all in 0.74. These graphics modes were based on a text mode hack and very uncommonly used in DOS versions due to major compatibility issues between video cards. I adjusted the compatibility percentages (0.60 was nowhere near 95% compatible).
MegaZeux 2.70 and 2.51 run perfectly as of 0.74 (2012-07-20 02:45) AliceLR
These are the versions anyone should ever need to use, and both work perfectly for me in 0.74, sound card configuration included. Support is also great for MegaZeux 1.xx; MZX may crash due to bugs in its own code.

Sound card configuration is indeed still broken in the 2.51s (Spider) versions, in MegaZeux Akwende, and in several of the 2.6x versions that I recall.

Also, the first version of MegaZeux, 1.00g, was released in December 1994.
Sound card (2008-08-18 15:08) fmillion
Doesn't seem to want to detect the sound card at all. "Sound card IRQ level detection failure, error 3901h." Game plays fine but none of the sound emulation models will satisfy the program. Going to experiment with different versions (this is the 2.51 official version).

Edited ASCII chars will not display correctly. Also, SuperMZX will not work at all.
Note: (2003-10-15 15:08) KewlioMZX
Works almost perfectly. You have to tinker with the cycle speed, though.
