This was such a surprising problem, that I decided to report it even though the readme tells you to update both sound and graphics card drivers.

I got very low framerates in Neptune's Hall (among other problems), and getting new drivers for the integrated Realtek AC'97 sound chip fixed them. It took a while to figure out that problems with graphics might be caused by old sound drivers.

where did you get the drivers from? I didn't find any when I searched?
