8hrs to figure out exactly why I had no sound in DM II SKullkeep.

Only working version i found was using freegameempire.com to play it, found where that site installed it, compared files and found the SKULL.EXE from there and the one from abandonia are different. replaced the one from FreeEmpire folder to the abandonia folder and bam, digital sound worked.

Hence abandonia's skull.exe file is corrupt or edited at some point (Broken)

Man, I don't know who you are...but I was only getting music too. I read your post and took your advice and boom! All sounds working now. Probably you won't ever read this again, but thank you!
