VDMSound is a program that allows DOS games on Windows NT, 2000 and XP (or 98/Me) to play sound even if their soundcard has no DOS-compatible drivers. It should work for any sound card that works in Windows. It will even work if there's no sound card at all (although, why you would care...)

Further, you can even log the sound that it emulates to a wave file, so it can be played back later. You can use this to make MP3 versions of BAMs, for example (Note: This will not make them sound good).

This shortcut is optimized for the OHRRPGCE to make VDMSound run as fast as possible, and to avoid the slowdown that some users experience when running the OHRRPGCE with VDMSound.
