Twin Dragon installs its self to Shadow Warrior by overwriting the original second episode, Code of Honor. The only way to get the original episode back would be to uninstall Twin Dragon. GOG worked around this issue by distributing two instances of Shadow Warrior with their version, one already "patched" with Twin Dragon located in the \dragon directory, the other "vanilla" version with Wanton Destruction in the root folder. However, this causes its own inconveniences as it requires its own private copy of the SW.CFG settings file. Settings usually have to be changed twice, once for vanilla, once for Twin Dragon. You could however make the game refresh Twin Dragon's .CFG from the main .CFG every time on start up to avoid this inconvenience and make both instances share the file in a sense by simply tweaking the autoexec.
Open the file dosbox_swarrior_single.conf and under the :dragon part of the DOSBox config file, add the following lines after the #tdragon.exe but before the cls.
#sync shadow warrior configuration
Additionally you can keep saves between the two synced by adding COPY C:\*.SAV C:\dragon\ to the autoexec before starting SW.EXE and COPY C:\dragon\*.SAV C:\ after.
COPY C:\*.SAV C:\dragon\
COPY C:\dragon\*.SAV C:\
@COPY sw.dat sw.exe
If issue still persist you can scrap the bind method entirely and try the following:
You can patch its included SW.EXE with this to enable the music again.
