I used the -f0 switch to generate the slowest format possible, that of 
cassette.  I also maxed out the volume by using -v10.  (The docs say that 10 
is the default, but if you enter no parameters, the program help indicates 
the default is 0.98.)  Neither helped.

I forgot to mention that I'm running SuSE Linux 7.3.  I set the volume in 
XMMS (an MP3 and WAV player like WinAmp) to 100%.

I did remember to set the -ts switch.  :)

Same problem... using Linux...

(I do have a dual-boot system with Windows 98, but my development is done in 
Linux now, so I'd rather not have to switch back and forth between operating 
systems just to play a few games.  :) )
