Whether it's through XP's DOS box, or through a clean floppy/CD boot through DOS 6.22, I'd need the sound drivers or someting that can work the sound into these games. It's been a while since I last dealt with this, and clearly such options have become much more obscure.
I wanna do this on multiple computers, but I figure most of them should be compatible sound-wise, for the most part. There may be something generic enough to cover all Realtek, all AC'97 or even all VIA chipset things out there? That would be best.
The one I'm using right now is an onboard Realtek ALC655 6-channel, compliant with AC'97 2.3 (pretty commonplace afaik), on an ECS Elitegroup K8M800-M2 motherboard (version doesn't matter I think for motherboard, since all 3 use the same sound adapter).
If I can work this out, especially from a DOS boot, maybe on my next clean OS reinstall I'll make the computer dual-boot XP, DOS and perhaps even Linux. Yay for nostalgy and diversity heh.
So, thanks everyone, and I hope this topic is in the right part of the forum!
P.D.: If anyone's curious or needs to know, the main candidates for this retro gaming are Monkey Island 1 & 2, plus The Dig.
