I downloaded WC I yesterday and went through the install process on my PC. When I went to play, there is no sound and It goes super fast through the game, way to fast to be playable. I also downloaded the DosBox 0.63 but I don't know if my computer is using it to run the game. This is the first time I've tried to download one of these classic games to play on my computer so I don't know what I'm doing. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

P.S. My computer is a Gateway w/ windows xp, Pentium 4. I have no added on equipment like sound card or graphics card everything is just what came with the computer.

well you probably don't use dosbox as then the game wouldn't be too fast.

Try taking a look on this page:

It doesn't. DosBox is not automatically used to run the games. First, you must install, configure (dosbox.conf, fortunately described in detail) and then launch it. Using its text interface, enter the game directory and run the thing.

At least you had the guts to admit this. Something that people rarely possess.
