Download a must-have app for any hard-core DOS gamer running Windows NT, 2000, or XP

VDMSound lets you run virtual DOS soundcard drivers within Windows, complete with sound drivers, DOS Himem support, and CPU slowdown.

To make the most of VDMSound you also need to download the VDMSound launchpad, a GUI front end for VDMSound that makes it easier to create a custom VDMSound setting for each game you wish to run.

1. Right-click the game executable and choose VDMSound.
2. Select Custom Configuration. I recommend this option over the default settings since not all DOS games work with the defaults.
3. You'll have the option to reuse an existing setup or create a new one from scratch. If you choose to create one from scratch, click the Advanced button on the next screen.
4. Set how much RAM to allocate VDMSound for the game, himem.sys options, MIDI emulation, and processor slowdown.

Start playing!
