View Full Version : Can't get any sound on Zelda

04-14-2004, 06:18 PM
I downloaded Zelda 190SR1 and got it to run but I have no sound at all. I tried using the instructions on a previous post but that didn't work. I'm using Windows 2000 and even ZQuest 190sr1 won't even run the dos screen pops up and then dissappears, Configure ZC does the same thing. Anyone got any ideas?

The same thing happens to me, except that the sound is messed up. ZC works perfectly but some parts of the currently played music doesnt play. I`m using Windows XP just for anyone to know.

here's what I collected up when I had that problem

If you run AG setup.exe, then go to midi driver, it'll ask you for your sound card and give you a list. If yours isn't on the list, it's not compatible.

Okay, don't mess with the patches and such... leave them at default. Try changing your midi device to either "MPU-401" or "Midi Out". Don't use auto-detect: it'll usually give the generic "Adlib" option, which is probably what the problem is.

Thank you Overdrive it worked!

Ok Tudorcat this is what you should do!

1-Go into AGSetup
2-Go to Digital Driver
3-Click on Generic SB
4-Listen to what the bottom screen says and set everything to what the "usually" is.
5-Click ok
6-Go to the other sound option
7-Select MPU-401
8-Select everything to what the bottom screen says
9-Click ok, save the changes.
10-Run Zelda

Boomaster choose MPU-401 anyway. Let me tell you that I don't have a Generic SB or MPU-401 but it worked. Choose it anyway then in the options screen set the stuff to what the bottom screen says. Click ok, and run Zelda.

If this doesn't work just keep playing around with all the sound cards and save. Eventually something should work. After trying a sound card imediately set the options and save and run Zelda.



what I did for mine

set Digital Driver to "Soundblaster Pro" and "usual" settings as instructed by the Agsetup.exe
set Midi Driver to "Adlib (opl2) and "usual" settings.

The reason you are having issues is ZC 1.90 is for DOS. Windows NT, 2K, and XP do not fully support DOS. Besides sound card issues, it's also common to have video issues.

There is no fix for this problem, aside from running an x86 PC emulator to emulate a DOS platform to play ZC 1.90 on. If you can't get proper support from ZC 1.90 you need to use the ZC 1.92 Betas which are available for both win32 and dos.

It's interesting, but I'll point out that 1.90 sound doesn't work for me and I'm using WINDOWS 98! It supports DOS, but can't get sound to work. Still can't figure out what's wrong and Microsoft and sound card dealers are 0 help, so just use the latest v1.92 beta to run 1.90 quests. No problems so far, but if a room is filled with 4 corner spikes, they go all the way to the end instead of stopping midway, making some quests more difficult. eg ALTADD

Just because you run win98 doesn't mean your system is configured for sound to work correctly in DOS programs.

that's a quest rule option, they are set to do that.
