    I think I may have found the cause of the lock ups when trying to play King's Bounty on the DTK DATA-1000. It has some special sound circuitry as described in this patent "Binary system for generating sound US 5054086 A". I noticed that when I got the game to play from floppies there is music where I get clicks on the PCjr. The music is coming from the PC speaker, not the ones hooked to the soundblaster. I did a Google search on "DTK DATA-1000 sound" and the patent came up. The problem is that I have no idea what ports, interrupt, and memory it is using.

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    Just an update for anyone who finds this. I never foundout what causes this, but the Version of King's Bounty that came free with "Heroes of Might & Magic Collection 1-5 (Exclusive) /PC (UK IMPORT)" works from hard drive or with all the files on a larger floppy drive on this computer.

    I know Orbiter v1.00 or v1.01 doesn't work on HDD but on Floppy.
