X-Wing Collectors CD Sound Judder.

  Brian Hamilton 19:20 31 May 2019

Have been doing a bit of retro gaming and decided to install X-Wing Collectors Edition from 1994 on Windows 10 64 Bit via a DOSBox. I have all the functions working apart from one annoying problem where the sound will stop mid game and continuously judder. Any ideas?

Thanks in advanced.

DOSBox seems to have a problem running on modern PC's due to they're multicore processors. Try setting DOSBox to run on a single CPU.

Example below:

Thanks for that. Seems to have cured the stutter. Now just need to sort out the command line for the shortcut.

Great. I had the same problem using ScummVM Emulator to play some old point and click games.
