View Full Version : Help me! No sound!

05-25-2004, 10:27 AM
I have just dug out my old copy of the Monkey Madness Disk that includes the full versions of Monkey Island 1 and 2 ( and a demo of 3), But when I try to play Monkey Island 2 on my PC there is no sound??

I have tryed to go through the trouble shooting text file but it does not help very much, does anyone have any idea??

Monkey Island 1 work fine because all the music is run from CD audio and the Monkey island 3 demo works fine.

Help me...

people will come and tell you something about scummvm and that you might type that magic formula into your google. probably you will end up at scummvm.sourceforge.net then.

someone else will tell you about VDMSound and VDMSLauchpad and that you should google for this. then you will propably end at ntvdm.cjb.net

hey. perhabs i can help you out. try VDMSound found here (http://ntvdm.cjb.net/)

or just google for it.. :D

wow, that easy??


I also found this Scumm VM quick and easy program that seems to be doing the job, have you heared of that one??

Quick and Easy is a well known frontend/interface for ScumVM.

Really useful, have only just got a new PC, after being absent of one for years, so i dug out all my old Lucas Art's point and click games only to have the horror of no sound.

But all is well now.

Such great games, why after the 1990's did these games not generate equally good sequels??? Surley Sam and Max, Day of the Tentacle, Loom, Indiana Jones all deserve sequels???

(not to mention a Monkey Island game thats back on form, did love number 3 though)

Where is Ron Gilbert now??

Sam & Max HAD a sequel....

Please, let's not piss on that electric fence

*gasp* was the Sam and Max sequel cancelled too?

I had the same trouble with MI2 and the Monkey Madness CD. SOMI worked fine, but I could never get any sound to work in MI2. And I never really tried to fix it either.

Where is Ron Gilbert now??

He's president of a company called Cavedog and of Humongous (the one that makes Pajama Sam and Putt-putt), and that's pretty much all I know.

Cavedog went bust years ago and he left Humongous a few years ago too.
