Sound problem prevents Blood from starting

"Sound blaster not responding on selected port"

That's the error I get when attempting to play Blood, even though I diligently followed the instructions. Same case in VDMSound. DOSBox runs it but I gave up on adding CPU cycles (for smoothness) at 500,000 cycles and approximately 2 FPS.


Sound blaster or compatible
Address 0x220
Irq 7
8-bit DMA 1
16-bit DMA 5

Windows Xp (probably with SP2)

Didn't work.

And I forgot some specs
System: Toshiba Satellite laptop
Sound equipment: Realtek AC97 (Memory range D0004400-D00044FF, IRQ 17)

Thanks for trying, though.
