i have a dos game which i bought a long time ago acutally two of them (indiana jones and the fate of atlantis and sam and max hit the road) i can't get the sound to work on them which i really want as i remeber them having nice voice and all. i have to specifiy the sound card and irq and buffer and port.
is there any way to get those dos games to work on the current windows xp with sp2 with sound?
also i have a wireless mouse and i can't get the mouse to move in the game but when i go to load/save (by preesing f1) i can use the mouse. why is that?

You could also try running it through DOSBox.

I run Sam & Max through ScumWM with VDMSound installed and it works great.
