Ack, I think I may have omitted some crucial sources form my WOLFXSRC.ZIP file. (Silly me for thinking SDL contained SDL mixer).

Seems VirtualBox (or maybe only when using fast hardware virtualization extensions??) doesn't like D3X, but WDOSX works okay (although it's a little less than smooth, slight framerate drop, presumably because 16-bit support isn't fully fleshed out in VirtualBox). Wolf4SDL works much smoother, but it frequently seems to get keys stuck (e.g. you start turning around in a circle over and over ...) which can be manually corrected with movement but is still annoying. BTW, as Japheth has previously mentioned, no SB sound in VirtualBox. :-(

Long story short: DOSBox + Wolf4GW is probably best (lacking real hardware, of course, yes DOS386 I know I know ...).
