“… (by Chris Cardoso) Can someone give me a similar guide to setting KQ6 up in DOS with VDMSound? Because from what I’ve tried on my own, the sound is a bit laggy and the fade in and out of the Sierra logo and the KQ6 logo at the beginning are agonizingly slow.
Well, what I did was to have VDM Sound installed (obviously) and then all you have to do is right-click Sierra.exe and select ‘run with VDMS’.
If the sound is laggy, download VDM Sound’s addon ‘Speedset’ (from http://vogons.zetafleet.com ). Copy speedset.exe and .dll to your KQ6 folder, and make a batch file in your KQ6 folder like so:
sierra.exe” (delete quotes)
Then run that batch file with VDM Sound, and it *should* correct the speed problem with the music. Some later games aren’t supported by it, but I’m fairly sure KQ6 was one of the last and did get support.
Get back to me.
