Something has just happened to the music on my Trial RoR. I have kept the Trial because sometimes I play it instead of popping the CD in.

Today for the first time, the music seemed slower, and at the end when I was quitting the game, it was badly out of tune. Sour sounding. Wobbly, flat, and like an old record player whose speed is not stable...

What is happening? Why? When I play the CD, the music is fine. Anyone have any ideas what to do.

Seems like Peter had this problem with the midi music on AoE. And I guess the Trial RoR would be midi music, right?

This has happened all of a sudden. Is the file corrupt? Should I uninstall the Trial RoR? (I have it saved on a Zip disk so I could copy it back.) But in a way I'm afraid to do anything.

I have DirectX 7a on a Dell computer that is only one year old.

Any ideas?

Right - I got the same problem but not always. Re-installing doesn't help so you can spare yourself that. I even have the problem when I play regular AOE with the midi music.

Haven't a clue as to what causes it.

I just defragmented my hard drive. Then I played RoR Trial. Things were back to normal.

It beats me. But for now, it seems to be working OK.

Hm, my hd - at least the part the AOE files are on isn't fragmented at all - yet I ahve that prob. And it only seems to occur when the world population is high.

Well, I read a new nickname for malfunctioning programs in Saturday's paper: schoftware, where 'schoft' is Dutch for villain. seems to come pretty close.

I don't have a divided or compartmentalized hd. But I do have a program in Windows 98 that "defragments" or rather, rearranges stuff in the hd to make it work better. It goes through every file and puts it near the "front or back" or some such thing.

Anyway, it seemed to temporarily help my problem.

I think "schoftware" describes these crazy things we deal with in these computer programs. Things happen beyond our control or knowledge. And happen without warning. And we are left wondering...
