Martian Memorandum under Virtual PC

Continuing on with the Tex Murphy games we arrive at Martian Memorandum.  This would have to be my favorite Tex Murphy game – with a gripping story and a simple click and point interface.  That is not to say that it is without its problems.  The biggest problem (in my opinion) is that it is relatively easy to mess up a conversation without realizing it – that is until hours later when you are missing a key piece of information and have no way of getting it:

Martian Memorandum runs well under Virtual PC – but I could not get any of the ‘sound effect’ options to work (trying to use the sound blaster for this just caused the game to lock up the first time a sound effect was generated) so I ended up using the Adlib sound setting.
