I bought it but I'm having issues with emulation speed and sound issues. The sound is somewhat crackly and every so often game game freezes for a bit.
Is anyone else having this issue or know how to fix it?
1) Check if game is running in OpenGL (default)
2) Close all youtubz and music players in background (first, Syndicate Wars deserves it, second, game really doesn't like any alternative music sources playing in the same time)
3) You can speed up the game by pressing Ctrl+F12* (it adds more cycles to dosbox - number of cycles for smooth play can vary on different CPUs).
*Ctrl+F11 - decreases number of cycles
Cheers, to all Syndicate players! :)
