The game works absolutely perfectly except for the sound. I finished the game without trouble.
What does not
Music works fine, but audio often cuts out when a voice is played. All sounds stop at that point. Sometimes they come back after 5 to 60 minutes (no joke), but not always.
What was not tested
Everything was tested (it's a relatively simple game : )
Installation instructions: 1) copy the following files to c:/alife (or where ever you want) alife.000 alife.exe alife.ini *.asc (if you want the scenarios) 2) edit alife.ini so that it looks like the following: Resolution = MAX Resource file = ALIFE.000 CD Path = ALIFE.000 Save games = C:\ALIFE Window name = Afterlife Mixer channels = 8 Color depth = Dont Care Heap size = 7000 Music stream = 200000, 150000, 32000 Voice stream = 65000, 48000, 22000 Installation = Full - change C:\ALIFE to where ever you installed the game - MAX resolution basically means "full screen", whatever your native resolution is (e.g. 1920x1200) - notice that there is no apostrophe in "Dont Care"
