Run the installer for the game, go to Options, and make sure the box by BloodNet (FDD version) is checked :)
Thanks, that did it. Gonna have to start a new game now on the floppy disk version now tho. Shame that you can't enable text during the CD-ROM version, there is just too much speech to sit through every word of it. I just spent about 20 minutes talking to everyone in a room.
You, sadly, need to sit through both the spoken and the written form of the dialogue due to some required clues being in only one or the other but not both. Not to make the game harder but because it's a hot mess of bad code and half realized ideas.
