Yes, but there's a better solution...

You can temporary disable arts using the following command:

artsshell suspend

Then run the game, and resume arts (run artsshell, and type 'help', IIRC it can display a list of commands (using windows ATM :().


You can tell SDL to output its sound through arts, by setting an
environment variable. I believe it's called SDL_AUDIODRIVER or something like that.
