i downloaded magic dosbox from android app store everything was working fine while i played theme hospital, sound and all. After 2 days the sound stopped working and i noticed that the “sound on” option has disappeared while trying to configure a game to play but “pc speaker” option which would be located underneath “sound on” is still available. im not sure what i did for this to happen but i cant get it back. ive even tryed to reinstall but still nothing.
anyone with any clues??17. April 2019 at 20:02 #7104
This option was removed many versions ago and is still ON. Try look for SETUP.EXE or similar executable in game folder. Maybe you turned off sound in game options?
You can try make fresh profile, if it will still not work then problem is in game and you must setup sound in game’s configuration options17. April 2019 at 20:35 #7105
definatly isnt game options i deleted all saved files
find setup.exe for main program software do you mean? because i cant find it, i chose hospital.exe for software main program, (confused.com)im a noobie sorry for my stupidness
i tried to reinstall magic dosbox which i thought would reset any profiles saved no?17. April 2019 at 21:11 #7106
If I play then I see sound checkbox if I move mouse cursor to top of the screen in the menu17. April 2019 at 21:18 #7107
@stats it’s most likely something simple. There is no sound on option, all you can do is select which soundcard you want to use. Make sure you have MIDI/MT32 disabled, and use the default Soundblaster 16.
It’s virtually impossible to break the sound emulation in Magic Dosbox on app level, it must be something in the game config.
For comparison, what happens when you play other games?17. April 2019 at 22:18 #7108
yes default soundblaster 16 chosen and midi disabled
ok i just downloaded doom and ran the dm.exe file on its own and i got sound…? so its definitely theme hospital. what i dont understand but want to is why it was playing sound before perfectly, but now its not.
in game at top of screen i checked and sound gamesound music is all on. there is a jukebox in game too but i cant get a sound from it
no sound at all in game????17. April 2019 at 22:35 #7109
just uploaded a video of me loading theme hospital with settings
and showing game sounds on in-game menu17. April 2019 at 23:02 #7110LarrynhoParticipant
Not related but there is a source port in the app store named corsixTH that works REALLY nice using original game files… id suggest using it over MDB fot Theme Hospital.
Lots of love for Mdb ofc but usually source ports are a better and simpler way to play the games when avaliable.17. April 2019 at 23:08 #7111
Have you tried to reconfigure sound with setsound.bat?17. April 2019 at 23:18 #7112
i might try it out if all fails larry thanks mate
do i choose the “setsound.bat” file for setup in the software section under main program17. April 2019 at 23:33 #7113
Yes, run setsound.bat. another thing is that maybe some game files are corrupted.17. April 2019 at 23:44 #7114
tried .dat file didnt work maybe its currupt but it was working before so confused? this game is known for its sound difficulties. thanks for you time peeps internet is great full of people willing to help maybe i figure it out ill let you know.18. April 2019 at 0:10 #7115
Sounds like a bad download. Abandonware is always priblematic (legal issues aside), so I’d suggest you get the gane on gog.com, this way you can make sure all game files are fine.18. April 2019 at 1:14 #7116
they both make you pay no thank you hehe18. April 2019 at 1:59 #7117
sorted ended up getting a new download which was 100mb bigger then the last plus sound working didnt even need the run the sound.dat file how silly of me. thanks again peeps u where great. i knew magic dosbox was good enough
but now i think i might have a bigger problem anyone know a good phone virus checker my paranoia spidey sense is telling me i could be infected
