The only time limit is in how fast it should be up its creators' respective a...Well, I DID pay $0.03 for the game on EBay back around 2000.

The game wasn't to hard because i had watched a walkthrough ages ago. I beat it in like two days. The colony mangement was kind of fun but unnecessary. Though I did like to put the vyro-ingo and VUX in the same systems after rejoining them just for fun. Though one major annoyance is that the music at any point in the game wouldn't play at all! The only exception being the victory diities.

There actually was no music though. I had the volume turned up all the way. I'm thinking it was a problem with DOSbox.

I don't remember that one.
I just remember I liked the Daktaklakpak's one. Not their ditty, but their music....

But indeed, that sounds like a dosbox or similar issue...

It's midi and back then you needed a soundcard with a midi 'table' with the instruments in it to play midi's properly.
So I think it gets down to emulating the right soundcard :)

Read the dosbox help for setting the correct soundcard. most soundblaster cards should do the trick. If that doesn't fix stuff ask again here and I'll see.
