FAQ: Problem: Sound is not working with Sound Blaster Pro compatible sound cards.
Solution: Unfortunately, DTU does require a Soundblaster 16 or 100% compatible sound card. However, we have a patch that will add support for Sound Blaster Pro sound cards.

Problem: Does Descent to Undermountain have the option of using command line options like Descent 1 uses?
Solution: Yes. Here is a list of command-line options that can be used when starting your game (case is not significant):

-LowMem Lowers animation detail for better performance with low memory
-Verbose Shows initialization steps for tech support -NoMemCheck Disables memory requirement checking -NoDOSCheck Disables DOS version checking
-NoSound Disables sound drivers
-NoMusic Disables music; sound effects remain enabled -NoJoystick Disables joystick support
-NoMouse Disables mouse drivers

Problem: I cannot get my sound to work or the game is locking up on me.

Solution: We have a patch available for Descent to Undermountain that fixes many troubles (including added sound card support). Note: Make sure you re-configure your sound card in the setup.exe program after applying the patch.

Problem: I only have a Sound Blaster compatible sound card (such as the Ensoniq Vivo) and not a Sound Blaster Pro or Sound Blaster 16 compatible.

Solution: Because DTU has no support for sound blaster cards, you may need to apply the DTU1-1.ZIP patch and then start the game up with a -NOSOUND command if you do not have a Sound Blaster 16 or Sound Blaster Pro compatible sound card. The command to start the game would look like:

DTU -NOSOUND

If you have an Ensoniq Vivo sound card, you can try the following to see if this will help:

you can try the following to see if this will help to get the sound working for you. First make sure you have applied our Descent to Undermountain patch. If you are still having a problem with the sound after using it, you can try the following:

You can try editing the DTU.CFG configuration file as follows:

DigiDeviceID=0x1
DigiDeviceID=0xe01e ; This setting is for the Ensoniq Vivo
DigiPort=0x350 ; Change to the address of your sound card in DOS
DigiIrq=-1 ; The Vivo doesn't care about IRQ
DigiDma=0 ; Change this to your sound card DMA in DOS

NOTE: The text following the semicolons (;) SHOULD NOT be entered into the DTU.CFG file. Also, if you do not know the address or DMA of your sound card, you will need to contact your sound card manufacturer to obtain this information.

ALSO NOTE: if this does not help to get sound with your Ensoniq Vivo, you will need to use the -NOSOUND command line when starting your game.
