Since this is my first venture involving a manual install of DOSBox, I'm not quite sure if the issue is with the DOSBox install itself, or with the game. Either way, I currently seem to have no sound or music while playing The Elder Scrolls: Arena under DOSBox on my laptop.
The entire introduction sequence is silent, all the way up to the stats selection screen. I've not tested it any further yet, but I would really have expected to hear something by now if it was working.
I'm pretty sure I've covered all relevant system specs below. Is there something configured wrong here, that I'm missing? Or is the problem deeper than this? What utilities or methods are available to help troubleshoot this?
Also, I am aware that there is a pre-packaged 1.07 version available. However, I would like to try getting this one running for awhile before I upgrade.
