Checked your image, spamalot.

1. It's real multi-session disc. One data track, and 15 music tracks. Thank you!
2. It really doesn't play in the emulated Win3.1. It says "driver MCI is missing", and I fear it means that this assembly simply doesn't support CD-audio playing. :|
3. I tried direct mounting of CUE/BIN (that I made with ISO Buster), and yes, it doesn't work too. I would be surprised, actually, if it would.

So... for working sound, you need to do something with Windows. CD itself is perfect.

---addition---
After some research I found that CD-audio driver (that is MCICDA.DRV) definitely missing in my Win3.1. Also, I found that lzexpand.dll (that must install everything) is broken - instead expanding driver from my Win3.1 floppies, it simply copied it. But... even installing correct lzexpand, and adding MCICDA.DRV didn't solve the problem - game still says about wrong device. :/ Maybe I need something else, but I have no idea what.

I think, I need more consulting from the real Win3.1 experts.

Yes I understand common user will have hard time, but I guess it can't be helped. We already host some win games that require this win3.11 on dosbox solution. And yes, surely there must be guide how to run the game. We include at the end of review How to run the game section and afterwards give support in game discussion and in troubleshooting forum. It is not perfect but gets the job done and games played

I see your CD. Please try to scan it, like really put it in the scanner and get picture of CD. We should add it as boxshot.

As for full screen - do you remember could it be played in full screen back in days? Not sure what's wrong there.

OK, I think I'll have more time next week, so if you agree on which archives to offer, let me know

It starts in window by default. Nothing too bad, it takes almost full screen and can be maximized additionally.

There is no "Full Screen" mode (without menu) in this game, it seems.
