The Exile games are really, really old. Sometimes strange things go wrong when you try to play them on new computers. We might be able to help you more if we knew whether you were using Mac or Windows.

If you have any sort of audio program running in the background, like a music player or another game, this can sometimes cause that error. I hit this once in Avernum 3.

I think it may have to do with the mixing device... On the sound card, I mean.

EDIT: Actually, come to think of it, this may be caused by a glitch with your sound card. At least, that was the problem with mine.

I had that problem on my old computer. Just don't run any music/sounf programs in the background. But if you really want to listen to music, turn off the sounds in the game.

I'm familiar with the sounds stuck error; I first encountered it in Windows 95b (don't comment), but have seen it even in Windows 98 (I confessably have yet to run an Exile game in XP).
If you run a program that already uses the sound card while starting up an Exile game (I found this prevalent in Exile 2), there's a good chance that the Exile sound engine will think that all of your system's sound resources are already taken.

If you want to listen to music or multitask or whatever, start up the other program after you start up the game.

I think this is too complex for us to deal with. I'd suggest e-mailing Jeff. He might have encountered something like this before and may have a solution for you.

I imagine he reads My experience of running Exile games under Windows XP indicates that installing the latest version of sound/video drivers (from the manufacturers), and also direct X (from microsoft), works wonders. No, really.
