How do i run the dosbox version of this game so I can have the music working?
DOS Box is installed in the DOS Box subdirectory of the Quake install, probably C:\GOG Games\Quake\DOSBox
Go in there and launch dosbox.exe.
Then type mount c C:\GOG Games\Quake
Then type quake and you should find that quake is now running in dosbox.
No clue about actually getting the music working though, I'm fortunate enough to still have the original version before they replaced it with the current version.
Not entirely correct.
In Windows there is a hidden shortcut called "Quake (Software Mode)"
> All Programs > GOG.com > Quake - The Offering > Quake (Software Mode)
C:\Games\Quake\DOSBox\DOSBox.exe -conf "..\dosbox_quake.conf" -conf "..\dosbox_quake_single.conf" -noconsole -c exit
The DOS Quake already have music because virtual CD is mounted by default. However you HAVE TO
manually edit 2 .cue files in text editor (e.g. Notepad) to eliminate 2 seconds gap in audio tracks, filenames are: game.cue and gamed.cue
