I just purchased complete Doom package from Steam (total of 7 games/addons for 8€) and am having difficulties running Ultimate doom on DosBOX on W7. Can FreeDOS fix the "problem"

Doom2 works better on DosBOX and is nicely playable.

I can't see why it wouldn't.

Install FreeDOS to VM (VirtualBox or VMWare should do nicely) and try from there.

VirtualBox didn't support SB sound (last I checked) though QEMU did.
