Audio Problems

Audio problems are common in the later Sierra DOS SCI games. There's no single fix for all these games.

Problem - Poor Quality / No Sound (Win9x and XP):
The game has no sound or the music is of poor quality.

Solution 1 (preferred):
Play the game with ScummVM, a third party Interpreter.

Solution 2:
Play the game in DOSBox. It also will work with the MT-32 sound module, if you are fortunate to have one.

Solution 3:
Use VDMSound. The game work well with VDMSound. The sound will be as good as your audio hardware, and as with DOSBox, it works with the MT-32 sound module.

Solution 4 (DOS/Win9x):
Install DOS drivers for your soundcard. Without DOS drivers installed you won't have sound in a DOS window in Windows 9x. If you can't find DOS drivers for your soundcard, there is an alpha (developmental) version of VDMS that you can try.

Game Specific Bugs

There are a couple of bugs that Ween: The Prophecy has that are not speed dependent.

Problem - Graphics Issues:
Some (usually faster) systems may have graphics problems with Ween: The Prophecy.

Solution 1:
Apply this patch.

Solution 2 (preferred):
Play the game with ScummVM, a third party Interpreter.
