    Which edition of the game do you have (how many discs), and have you tried disabling 3D acceleration?

    (don't know in which thread to post an answer >_>)

    Download the demo and see if that works fine. That way you'll know if it's just your copy of the game or the system that messes something up.

    Try updating your sound drivers (and your graphics drivers, while you're at it, though that's not likely to be the problem here). Some early version drivers for Vista were fairly flaky.

    This one got solved in another thread. I'll post the solution here as well in case someone else needs it.

    Hello.

    I'm new to the forums, but I need some help with sound and came here- there is music and inventory mode speech, but whenever subtitles are used, there is no speech. I have windows 7 so directions to solving the problem aren't particularly helping as it's very different to vista and XP.
    Please help :3

    I joined the forum so I could share this. I downloaded TLJ off of Steam, and I was having terrible cutscene and dialogue stuttering before making a few changes. Here is some info about my system...

    GPU: Nvidia 8600M GT

    OS: Windows Vista 64-bit (yeah...I know)

    And here are the changes I made...

    First, I went to...
    Run -> %APPDATA%\The Longest Journey -> Preferences
    [Preferences]
    SfxVolume=1.000000
    VoiceVolume=1.000000
    MusicVolume=1.000000
    bool_Subtitles=1
    bool_AprilHighRes=1
    bool_ShadowsOn=1
    bool_AllowFastForward=0
    AudioDevice=winmm
    [DirectX]
    bool_IsDoubleBuffer=0
    int_BitDepth=16
    bool_ShadowsOn=1
    bool_UseHardware=0

    I turned anti-aliasing off from my video card options.

    I then went to...
    Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers -> Speaker Properties -> Enhancements -> unchecked all boxes
    and then to...
    Control Panel -> Sound -> Speakers -> Speaker Properties -> Advanced -> unchecked all boxes under "Exclusive Mode"

    The whole game works perfectly now for me. Hope that helps someone else!

    EDIT:
    I also went to...
    Computer -> C: -> Program Files -> Steam -> steamapps -> common -> The Longest Journey -> configure -> and checked "Force single buffer" and "Force 16-bit graphics" and selected "Windows Multimedia" as the audio device.
