To tell you the truth i just play it and listen to some music i am not that happy to start fiddling around with things really. MY mates come with sound but he cant remember what site he downloaded from will investigate and come back later.

SGT [email protected], editing the autoexec may be needed if the program is DOS based, which this may well be. Whether the sound card is integrated or plug-in doesn't matter. Don't be afraid of editing autoexec.bat. If you're worried, then save a copy of the file with a name such as autoexec.old first so you can reinstate it later.

If you want retro games goto mameworld.com and download the Arcade emulator. They don't supply the ROMS because of copyright issues, but a quick search and you can find most of the golden age.

I've got Space Invaders and over a 1000 original arcade ROMS. The files are only about 24k in size so even if you've only got dailup like me you're laughing.

you've just wasted half an hour of my time :)))

Invaders was the game that got me started on the long rocky road of computer addiction, and I spent hours and piles of 10ps on the thing. Playing it this morning brought back a faint glimmer of what obsessed me back then (blimey, 35 years...) but we've come a long way. I had one game and scored 21,910 :)
