Fix for distorted sound or buzzing noise (2008-04-26 11:37) wirespot
It's caused by a sound effect that gets "stuck" in a loop.

To fix for the moment, get out of fullscreen mode if you're in it (Alt-Enter) and click the mouse inside the DosBox window anywhere. But you'll need to do this again whenever it happens.

To fix permanently:
* Edit your DosBox preferences and make sure Gravis Ultrasound is activated.
* Run setup.exe in the Hocus Pocus dir and choose Gravis for both music and sound FX.
* Run the game using hocusg.exe, not hocus.exe.

If you've setup your midi dir properly (see the preferences for Gravis) you'll get music too. Otherwise, you'll just get effects. But they won't get stuck anymore, they sound better than SoundBlaster or Adlib, and frankly the music gets pretty annoying after a while anyway.
Sound messes up after a while (2007-07-29 15:06) jordanwb
When I play Hocus Pocus the sound sometimes turns into a buzzing noise. The noise worsens when I press the fire button.

v1.1 works great as v1.0
