Re: Let's talk about our hated trends

in Milliways
I grabbed a curved 27" AOC during lockdown because it was all I could get my hands on in a hurry - I love it. Not a huge amount of curve on a screen that size but it's not warped; I won't be going back to flat.

Re: Reverse stereo in Quake with YMF718 based card

It's a whole thing and not as simple as it might be: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=536104#p536104 Quake doesn't do this on a real SB Pro as you can see above. I've looked into all of the options Quake allows for config, both in game and command line, there's nothing for reverse stereo. At …

Reverse stereo in Quake with YMF718 based card

I've been playing around with a YMF718 'Audician 32' recently and have noticed that the stereo is reversed in Quake. Googling around hasn't told me much - the issue was noted here in another thread but just in passing, and I can't find any way of switching the stereo in-game or via a command line …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

Yes I was surprised at how many games support the ESS but it's not as clear cut as WSS support because some only work with a ES688 or ES1688 based card (i.e. no the later ES1868) and then as you say some use that bizarre level of filtering which makes it unusable. RE the added filtering on the …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

Other than lack of those 2 modes, used in soooo many games that a single hand can count, for me it is the best SB Pro clone. There is a Patch for Duke 2 which makes all the sounds play on OPL3-SAx just great. @badmojo you have vouched for the ESS cards and i like them too myself. The 1868 does it …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

Lack of those capacitors will add high freq noise on the output. Lolz that explains the high pitched squeal I was hearing! Thanks again Tiido, this is why I love Vogons 👍 So for the record I replaced all 4 caps with 6.8nf SMDs on my YMF718 card in the end, so that's pins 97-100 on the main chip, …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

Hiya @Tiido just having another look at this. So according to the datasheet for the YMF711 (which you mentioned is the same as the YMF718 that I have) - pins 99 and 100 are described as SBSHL and SBSHR respectively. The caps for this line are described as 'SBDAC sample / hold capacitor'. I'm just …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

Dang it and I lifted a pad removing those caps so I might have messed up this card for no good reason - pretty sure I'd read a comment further back in this thread that stated the 718 version of the Audition 32 was layed out in the same way as the 719, and therefore the labels on the caps was the …

Re: Yamaha YMF71x SB Pro Mixer Bug Issue Fix

I've finally gotten around to trying out the low pass filter mod on my Labway OPLSAx card (described here https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p=527947#p527947) - mine is the same card as the OP except mine has the YMF718-S chipset, not the 719. The layout is exactly the same though. I've used 0805 …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Still hesitating my way through Outward here - I read in a review once that this game doesn't respect the player's time and that's true, it's a time sink and makes no apologies for that. I can spend a play session doing nothing more than messing around with my inventory and preparing a set of …

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

in Milliways
... only to sit on the shelf or some box in the storage. I can't seem to find the time to play around much I seem to go through a collect->purge cycle for this reason - I don't like having cool stuff hanging around that I don't use and that someone else could be enjoying, but then I have been know …

Re: What game are you playing now?

in Milliways
Healing well since my Christmas day tumble down the stairs. Still have pretty severe pain in the left kidney area in certain positions, so I avoid those positions, and every day it's getting better. Yesterday (5 days after fall) was my most significant improvement, and today is an improvement over …
