I need help to find out how I can speed up the game, when I use speech mode.
I have a PC which is above recommended.
The game works fine, until i choose speech mode.
It seems like the CD-rom takes a break (I HAVE A 8X CD-ROM, something is wrong).
It take up to 10 minutes before I can play...

Don't know if this really connected to your problem, but my LBA
Relentless was played perfectly on 486dx2-66 and experience almost
constant crashes and hangs on P-166. This is what I got on Usenet
about this: "LBA has difficulties in run on machines with high
speed. There is no patch. Only workaround is SLOW it's down with
help of different free utilities."
I have had success with MO'SLO.

Believe me, I'm pro-digger on I-net :) There is NO patch. :(
I also have LBA's CD. Also my suggestion is: enter BIOS setup,
Advanced Chipset Settings. Lower DRAM Read/Write timings (I don't
remember, but something made the trick for me).

OK, I'll try to install LBA again, and'll try to run it. I think
that sound drivers are "fragile" part of LBA. I have SB 32 PnP and
not all SB drivers worked. Maybe you should try different drivers ?

Ah-ha! Did you noticed filling scale on screen bottom, saying
"Speech files transfer" ? You can try to do "full" install
(if I remember correctly).

Have you tried to set the Buffer-size of you CD-ROM to a minimum?
At the MSCDEX-line of your Autoexec.bat there is an option /M:

Try to lower that option or set it to zero. So the CD won't try to copy the data to your Harddisk before playing the sound.
Look at your CD-drive manual how to set read-ahead and try to use
other DMA-settings (maybe you have to switch jumpers).

If your CD-Rom is set to polling instead of Interrupt control, this could slow down your CD-Rom too. Switch to interrupt mode,
and make sure no other component uses the same Interrupt.

You don't have a problem with the speed of your CD-ROM, but with
the access-time. The above methods should help to get a better
performance.

Å ja. Du sliter fortsatt med det problemet, håper du klarer å løse det, men jeg tror det er bare det at CD`rommen din ikke liker spillet. Hilsen ditt "kjære søskenbarn"
