I don't think you're running the latest release (which doesn't look like it supports requesters), you should be using ->

Are you sure your AHI is installed properly? Do you get any error messages when you open the AHI Prefs?

If installing the latest version and checking your AHI install doesn't help, the only other thing I can suggest is to use WinUAE and try and identify what part of your WB set up is causing the issue on your real hardware.

Performance with an ACA @ 40Mhz should be fine for Monkley Island 1/2 and DOTT as long as you don't enable MIDI music emulation (fast 040 required for MIDI emulation!). You shouldn't be using the PC speaker, just go with the defaults from the install which are set to the lowest possible (best performance).

PHP Code:
Performance Considerations:

1You should always patch exec.library's CopyMem() and CopyMemQuick() routines
for faster processor specific versions.
 2) Try reducing the audio playback frequency down to 8k if you'
re still having
performance issues
3) If you are using Paulastick with the 'FAST' 8 bit modes for AHI (prefs) -
a real 16 bit card will be faster with a 16 bit mode.
4This interpreter hits the hard drive so you'll need a fast transfer rate for
the newer games.
 5) Loading your ROM into FASTRAM is a great idea ;)
 6) Use v4.18 of AHI as the later versions are too slow!

Hi Novacoder,

Thank you for your reply, and for the ScummVM-port!
I am using I might be wrong, but I only seem to get PC-speaker sound. I would love to play MI1&2 with all the wonderful music on my Amiga (which, strangely, is how i remember it..), but I only get the occasional blips and blops, and not the constant soundtrack that I get on scummvm on PC.

I have now deleted all the AHI-files and reinstalled it, but nothing has changed (4.18). I get no error-messages when starting AHIprefs, and everything behaves the same now that I have my HDD hooked up to winUAE.

DOTT, MI2, Atlantis and MI1 are all running quite smoothly with no sound, but with sound enabled they behave differently.

DOTT - Still no sound
MI1 - PC-Speaker blippetiblop
MI2 - Black screen, nothing happends
Atlantis - Black screen, nothing happends

I have followed your performance guide. The only thing I haven't been able to do much about is my HDD transfer speed. Which is stuck at around 2mb. Internal IDE. I don't know of a way to increase this speed. I am using pfs3.

Thank you again for your reply!

And if i want to "add a game" from another partition then the one I installed ScummVM to the program freezes. When attempting to "go back" beyond DH1: . When using ScummVM ECS i am able to copy games to fastram and play them much faster. It does not crash when going beyond DH1: .
