Re: FM synth - native/direct vs. through MIDI?

I see. I shouldn't have mentioned that.. I somehow knew this would end up in an argument. *sigh* Okay, the reason I mentioned that is the recent activity in another thread. There , the reason for the original AdLib's i/o jumper block was being discussed. If I hadn't mentioned that other port …

Re: FM synth - native/direct vs. through MIDI?

a) use AdLib's base address (FM default: 388h/389h, probably the result of 380h+8h/380h+9h; other base addresses selectable) AdLib port, 388h, is pretty much always fixed in games unless the game allows you to tell that for a specific card. I’ve disassembled various games for the CMS and Tandy …

Re: FM synth - native/direct vs. through MIDI?

That being said, Sound Blaster and AdLib aren't exactly same when it comes to FM programming. The Sound Blasters have a separate set of FM i/o port addreses at 220h/221h (OPL2; OPL3 has extra i/o ports for left/right). Of course, they also listen to the old AdLib ports at 388h/389h. So well written …

Re: AdLib GOLD clone is now a reality

I don't have the Ultimate Talkie version, just the original floppy edition. FWIW, I tested the floppy version on two different setups: 386 DX-40 with a real Adlib Gold and 486 DX-33 with a GoldLib. Didn't have a crash or other issues in either case. Does it only do this with the Ultimate Talkie …

Re: AdLib GOLD clone is now a reality

Hi there! I was playing a bit of Monkey Island "Ultimate Talkie" and i was running into crashes everytime i tried opening a door on the game. Being completely puzzled, and thinking it could be an oddity of my setup, i removed the GoldLib card, because i simply never had any issues with this game …

Re: AdLib GOLD clone is now a reality

Success! Thank you for suggesting this, it did the trick! Happy to help! Remember that it's important to keep the AdLib Gold on a range that nothing else writes to it. In my case a PAS and the Gold at 388h was immediate disaster with the MVSOUND.SYS driver writing on that range screwing up the …

Re: AdLib GOLD clone is now a reality

Unfortunately my GoldLib appears to have died. :( I was testing it in a 486 DX-33 build. Initially it worked and I was able to detect and configure it just fine. I'd been adding and testing other sound cards. At the time I was mainly working with the AWE64 and Yamaha Audician 32. Then went back to …
