Sounds not perfect... (2008-06-13 00:05) Mr_Options
Run fine with 0.72, but :
The sound is too fast with SB16, and is to slow
with GUS (well, not sooooooooo slow, but slow anyway).
Music is played from CD, of course...

Is someone know how to have the soud to play correctly ?
CD audio bug in DOSBox 0.63 (2005-11-01 17:01) bugger
Tested in DOSBox 0.63 - Atari splash screen comes up OK now, however the voices are still playing slowly (though I wouldn't call it unbearably slow).

Also, there is a nasty bug with the CD audio tracks when using any (OK, I only tested the sb16 emulation, shaddup :| ) of the Sound Blaster emulation facilities - this results in an incredibly loud buzzing sound which starts just after the Atari logo sequence ends, and remains until you close down the game. Unless of course, you pick a different option to "CD-ROM music" in the setup program, but you'd be mad to do that =P

To get around this problem, disable all SB emulation, and enable the Gravis UltraSound emulation instead. Run the setup program before running the game to make sure it detects the GUS, then exit and run the game. CD audio should now function perfectly.

Takes 20-30 seconds to show Atari splash screen.
Voices are played way too slowly, tried adjusting sb frequency with no joy.
