You have to turn music off. Not just move the slider completely down
I can not find a way to do this in the game's options. How do I do that?
Thanks for the reply.
I loaded up an old save game and set things according to the screen shot, and I was able to enter Escaton's Palace and walk around some. When I had the Music slider set higher, the game would crash after I entered.
I have WIndows 7 and I use the base GOG install. I use the "MM8-Rel.exe" shortcut to start the game, since that one doesn't have a few sound issues that the default shortcut has (like stammering speech when taking a boat).
Edit to add: Right, you said the Prison of the Earth Lord was giving you trouble. I just tried that one, and I was able to enter and move a little even with music turned all the way up. I'm not sure where your issue lies. I seem to recall having to turn the music "off" for one of the prisons, but I don't recall which any more (Fire Lord's, maybe?).
