Use "silent.bat" to start the game instead of the "ss2.exe".

I have never been able to get this to run on any of my computers. I'm running DosBox 0.72 on Linux and Windows XP machines. I've tried a variety of DosBox settings and a variety of SS2.EXE settings (as reflected in SILENT.BAT or attempted by hand). Every time, when SS2 is executed DosBox just hangs immediately.

The INSTALL program, when run, gives me a choice of sound cards. After accepting an entry the program then exits (having created or recreated SILENT.BAT). It does nothing beyond this one screen.

Can anyone who has gotten it to run give me a suggestion? Thanks!

I did get it running but the sounds are not really great.. I'm using PCLinuxOS 2009 and running DosBox 0.72.. I use the SILENT.BAT to run the game.. In my SILENT.BAT I wrote:
SS2 VGA IBM

If not mistaken the defaults from abandonia is:
SS2 VGA IBM 720

not really change alot of things to the game though.. the sounds still as bad as before..
well, maybe u need to make sure that all the files of the game not protected or root permission.. juz select all and right click, then click properties.. hope that would help.. [sorry if my english is not really good]

Default Finally Works

Well, this was rather stupid, I had *two* distributions of this game and one had a bad executable, however it has sound files not present in the Abandonia copy. It sounds best with the Adlib option but you need the file ASOUND.SS. The music quality is good but the digitized speech is unintelligible. SILENT.BAT is just

ss2 vga adlib

and now it works for me. If you want the ASOUND.SS file see the post below for the link (email address deleted)

Here is where you can get ASOUND.SS

http://www.bobnewell.net/filez/ASOUND.SS

I didn't upload the whole alternative distro because it has corrupt executables.
