This old thread just helped me A LOT. I was aiming to run the GOG release of UUW1 on my Android tablet, and at first there was no sound. A little tweaking made speech and sound effects come out, but no music, and that was starting to take too long.
Go to Your "UNDEROM1\DATA" folder, and open up the UW.CFG, and edit the first line: from "6
-1 -1 -1 sound", to "4
-1 -1 -1 sound".
This is what made the music come out right off the bat, no more tweaking required in my end.
for Ultima Underworlds 1. Take off the 1 in the front. UWSOUND.exe
for Ultima Underworlds 2. Take off the 2 in the front.
Probably what I needed before this all started, I suppose I didn't need to be tweaking anything had I the original configuration files at hand.
Install.exe is not there.;)
Perhaps there is a way to configure the sound with this, i just haven't found it.
UINSTALL lets you set sound settings. I haven't really experimented with it but its changes do seem to take effect since choosing PC Speaker made the music disappear. :)
I saw this solution elsewhere but in my end I couldn't find INSTALL or UINSTALL files. Checking this thread I ended up finding both UWSOUND and UINSTALL within the CD image, stored in the UW folder I hadn't checked before.
