While creating this program I managed to produce quite of few Sound Blaster
tools. For $20.00 I'll send you a registered version of Haunted House Sounds
and the "VBLAST! C Programmers Tool Kit (large model only)". Included with
this tool kit you'll find sample Turbo C programs which incorporate the
features of VBLAST! (HHS uses VBLAST! functions). Write your own Sound
Blaster applications. Develop your own VOC player. Develop a "way cool" game
with nifty sound effects.
HHS may not be changed/modified in any way except by the author.
HHS may be freely distributed for the ten day trial period as long
as it remains in its complete form.
