LBA2 - Main theme issue

Hello guys,

Sorry if I don't post to the right place, but anyways.

So I recently installed LBA2 again on my computer (with Windows 7) using the Dosbox guide available here.

Everything works fine, I could go through the entire game with no problem. I only have one issue though and it concerns the "main theme", aka the music you hear when you press the ESCAPE button (main menue).

Everytime I hear it ingame, the music plays for a bit (like 20 seconds), then the game freeze for 30 seconds (it's relative though) with the music being all glitchy then the music stops and the game unfreezes (and I can still play normally). I seem to have this issue with only this music and it's kinda annoying because it happens everytime I open the menue.

It doesn't break the game, Dosbox doesn't crash and the other musics continue to play when needed, yet the minute this music plays, it kinda gets annoying.

Any solution?

Are you sure all the other music play normally ? Even the ones you can listen via the jukebox in Luc's bar in Citadel island ?

Yes, they all do, none of them become glitchy after a while and freeze the game.

The menu theme is unique in LBA2 as it is not played as a Midi file but as a track directly from the CD. So it cutting off can either mean you don't have your CD music/virtual CD drive set up ideally, or the CD has a scratch there and is broken.

If you followed the DosBox guide exactly, I think it's outdated and somebody posted a solution for the sound problem earlier ... but that was for LBA1 IIRC.
