DOTT wins the award for wackiness, FT for style, and The Dig for storytelling, when it comes to LucasArts adventure games, IMO.

There is no "official" fix for this well-known problem, however, there is a solution.

 

You'll want to get ScummVM. It's basically an emulator for the Scumm engine - the one used by LucasArt's adventure games like Full Throttle. Using that, FT (and others) should have nice sound in XP, as well as a slightly nicer save/load interface, etc.

 

The easiest way to use ScummVM seems to be to copy the game's data files to your hard disk and forget about the CD. The website has a list of files you'll need to copy for each game. Then, just start up ScummVM, point it to the game's data directory, and fire it up.

 

Once you're in the game, hit F5 for the menu. There are quick-save keys and stuff too, if you're into that.

 

Once ScummVM is configured, you can make shortcuts directly to games (so you don't have to start ScummVM every time) using the emulator's shorthand code for a game, like so:

C:\ScummVM\scummvm.exe ft

Where "ft" is Full Throttle's abbreviation (they're listed in the emu).

 

And since we're on the subject, I made an icon for FT since I didn't like the default one. It's of the flaming skull icon and is attached to this post.
