Many newbies often complain that there's no sounds or music. Sure, they could preumably just go search for the information, but many of these people have just started playing and have no idea where to look. So why not, for the sake of convenience, a simple, easy-to-find set of instructions on how to make the sounds and music work properly? Here are the instructions I have written on how to make the sounds and music work:

FOR WINDOWS 95/98:

1. Make sure the DOS drivers for your sound card are installed (they should be on the CD).
2. If you do not have an archive-file extractor like WinRar or WinZip, download WinRar from http://www.rar-soft.com
3. Download the Blake Stone demo and extract it to C:\BSTONE.
4. Go to My Computer, double-click on the icon for C:, and double-click on the folder icon labeled BSTONE.
5. Double-click on the icon for the file SETBLAST.
6. Fiddle around with the settings, using the test option in the menu after each change, until the progam says it works.
7. Memorize the name of your Wolfenstein folder and the filename of the program (usually WOLF3D). Make sure both are eight letters or shorter.
8. Click the Start button, select Shut Down, select Restart from the dialog box, and press OK.
9. When you see the screen change, tap the F8 key repeatedly until a menu pops up. Use the arrow keys to select the option "Command prompt only" and press Enter.
10. Type CD\(the name of your Wolfenstein folder) and press enter. For example, if the directory was named WOLF, you would type CD\WOLF.
11. Type the filename of the Wolfenstein program and press Enter.
12. Whenever you're ready to go back to Windows. quit the game and press the Control, Alt, and Delete keys at the same time. The computer will restart and take you back to Windows.
Repeat steps 8 to 11 each time you want to play Wolfenstein.

FOR WINDOWS XP:

1. Do step 2 for Windows 95/98 users (see above)
2. Download VDMSound and extract it to whatever folder you want.
3. Open that folder, and read the text file that came with VDMSound.
4. Follow the installation instructions in the text file CAREFULLY. If you have any problems understanding what to do, post the part of the instructions you don't understand in a thread on the forums. Someone more skilled with computer jargon will explain it to you in plain English.
5. Once VDMSound is installed, go to the Start Menu, select Run, type cmd and press enter. A window with a DOS prompt will pop up.
6. Type DOSDRV and press Enter.
7 Type CD\(the name of your Wolfenstein folder) and press enter. For example, if the directory was named WOLF, you would type CD\WOLF.
8. Type the filename of the Wolfenstein program and press Enter.
9. Whenever you're ready to go back to Windows, quit Wolfenstein, type exit and press Enter. The DOS prompt window will disappear.

I've downloaded and installed VDMSound and I have an easier way to use it: I right click the .exe file and there is "Run with VDMS" option. And it works.

None of the top can work if the port is not free. On my 233MHz computer, I needed to disable the Printer Port so the SB could use those IRQs and such.

It didn't for me.
