Not sure about that. Here's my specs: Intel Core2duo SU7300, 4GB DDR3 RAM Nvidia GeForce G210M 512 MB. This specs is even quite enough to play current gaming streams like Dead Rising 2 that has thousands of zombies appearing on one screen. Btw, I think Fluidsynth also gives this problem too. Need to...

now that you mention it....

Tried that, and for some reason the stuttering stopped.
But when I got back using MT32 emulator for MIDI, it stutters again.

At least there a light here.

ok. thx for d info. Tried several games that I have downloaded the ogg collection from your site and it sounds great. Too bad I have to use your build since the regular svn build only playbacks pure Adlib sound.

sorry about that. it's just kinda silly though... the size are 355,217,113 bytes. Tried Dosbox and it seems playing well though. I'm using ASUS UL30VT. I doubt that it's too slow since I can play current games like SF4, BioShock 2, Crysis, Dead Rising 2, etc. edit: just downloaded the latest svn (54...

I knew that, it's kinda obvious for CD games from mid 90's era. But, I'm pretty sure it patched... sorry, cracked the EXE file. Most of the games protection from that era, and even today, are located in the EXE file. I still vaguely remember finding the cracks around 97, it's the year I had first ti...

duh.... of course. That is the reason it's called cd talkie. although the floppy version do have that file, but it's way smaller.

You're not paying attention here: it's stuttering, not total void of sounds.

Good tip, although I won't be doing that. It's great to be able to play the game without me scouring the manual bin again. :lol:

ah... yes. I'll check that out. Btw, the stuttering's getting worse. Only by couple of speeches and it began stuttering again. Unless I switch to text (or the diskette version), this is not really playable. I'll try to post on the tracker. edit: @Collector: I "am" playing this on my HDD, since my la...

The earliest example can be heard at intro cutscene on the speech between the 2 gentleman on the dock. The second line which the right gentleman speaks stutters badly. And not long after s...
