I have downloaded cannon fodder for the pc and in runs under dos. It all works apart from the sound. I have windows xp and i have a creative sound blaster is there anyway i can get the sound to work

Try right clicking the exe file for cannon fodder, and set the compatibility mode for Windows 95/98/Me.

Maybe that would work!

allready thought of that it makes no difference

Good old cannon foder remember it well from my Amiga days,used to pee me off serverly but as ßéLâ says i doubt you will get sound.Im suprised you got it running lol.

I am expecting similar problems if and when I upgrade to XP. Its for that very reason that I will set up a dual boot system with XP, for when it works, and SE, for when it doesn't.

Just a thought...

Cannon fodder does run on winxp, but as Pau1JB says No sound, same for me....

i also have cannon fodder on an amiga emulator which does give sound but won't save the game so its a bit of a waste of time playing it.

only suggestion is to try booting into dos with a start up disk and it might run from there (but i doubt it) or to partition your drive and dual boot with winxp & win98.

good luck, good game as well even if it is an oldie.

i will think about the win 98 idea once i get my new hard disk i just filled an 80gb there so.

cheers anyway
