Works With 0.74 (2017-03-03 23:20) tooly111
Game works perfect with 0.74 you must use the Sound Blaster Patch otherwise the game doesn't run when using the soundblaster card.
The only issue is that the patch will cause a lock at the beginning of the second disk which the patch also installs a save file that starts just after that issue. Unfortunately theres no way around it if you want to run the game.
Some of the main settings I used:
[sdl]
fullscreen=true
fulldouble=false
fullresolution=original
windowresolution=original
output=ddraw
autolock=true
sensitivity=100
waitonerror=true
usescancodes=true
priority=higher,normal
mapperfile=mapper-0.74.map

[dosbox]
machine=svga_s3
captures=Captures
memsize=64

[render]
frameskip=0
aspect=true
scaler=normal2x

[cpu]
core=auto
cputype=auto
cycles=auto
cycleup=10
cycledown=20

Just a quick add-on... (2006-04-15 15:12) redfield300
Almost forgot to mention...there is an update to the game (still available for download from Broderbund's website as of this note: angelupd.exe) which supposedly solves a Soundblaster and CD-Rom issue. I don't know if this affects the game's running under DOSBox (I had installed it prior to testing), but I would recommend it anyway, as it comes with a "Workaround" save game in case you run into CD problems while inserting Disc 2 at a certain point in the game. Never hurts to be prepared.
Game working under DOSBox 0.65! (2006-04-15 15:03) redfield300
I just tested Angel Devoid under DOSBox 0.65 and it seems to be running, as long as the following is done.
Before play, though, do the following:
1. Install the game to the hard drive, setting up your sound as desired.
2. At the DOS Prompt, type "uvconfig".
3. Set the top prompt to "Unknown S3."
4. Set the middle prompt to "8 MB."
5. Set the third prompt to "Generic 24-Bit DAC."
6. Leave the others alone.

The game should now run. If not, try setting the third prompt to something different. It worked for me, though, so it should work for you.

Most hard to run game i ever seen!
Don't works in DOSBox and don't works even on most real systems, especially with GeForce video cards and without ISA Creative SoundBlaster soundcard.

If you want to play this game on new systems, you can try following things:

1. Use "SolVBE" ulility to emulate VESA graphics output (very low perfomance, choppy mouse moving, almost unplayable, but runable).

2. Use good Macintosh emulator "Basilisk II" for Windows.
"Angel Devoid" CD-ROMs are Hybrid PC/MAC format, so MAC-version there as PC one. (acceptable perfomance, there is no bugs in MAC version).
