View Full Version : SoMI cd

11-14-2002, 03:31 AM
Hey yall,

I'm a proud owner of a TSoMI vga cd,
I tried to run it with and without vdmSound but I still encounter the same problem.. :(

When I start the monkey.com on the cd, I can choose a language, when I chose English it's about to start only it says it couldn't find a cd and it needs a cd in the cd rom-drive to play it. I find it very strange cause the cd in fact ís in the cd-drive, I also tried it in my Burn-drive (how do you call it?).

Can anyone help?

Give me a listing of the directory/file structure of the cd

uwh, lemme think, I'm not home at the moment:

my cdrom drives are:
G: - my burner
H: - my normal cd rom drive

my cd looks like:

when you browse the cd, you see all kinds of different languages, spanish, english, deutch, italion or someting etc...

There's also a monkey.bat file (or is it monkey.com). When I open that, a menu appears where I can select the language, but when I select one, it says I need a cd to play...

I already tried both cd-drives...

I also tried to open the map "english" on the cd and start monkey.exe with VDMSound, but that failed too..

I also tried to copy the map "english" to my hard drive, still it wants a cd... ???

Find the exe thats in the same folder as the resource files (monkey.000 and monkey.001 or similar). It'll probably be monkey.exe and run that with vdmsound or quick and easy.

I tried VDMSound,

Also I tried LEC Q & E, but that programm didn't work on all the games... :)

When I press start - nothin' happens :)

It does run with VDMSOund, but it says it still needs a cd to run...
weird problem ey??

I'm running win-xp

It did mention MSCDEX once, should I do anything with that?
