    I prefer the Yamaha YMF262-M on the SoundBlaster Pro, 16, and AWE32 cards, the golden era of OPL3 mmmmmmm...

    Might be do-able under dosbox.

    Yes, there is OPL (the Yamaha chips) emulation in dosbox and it's good enough for my ears.

    Well, I just installed the game from my floppies - and laughed when I found inside the box an extra floppy labelled 'bootdisk + memmaker'. Man, this thing was hard to run on my 486
    Anyway, the music does sound a lot different indeed. At least when I configure the game to use SoundBlaster, which was what I had on my old computer.
