Re: DOS games with native DB50XG/SW60XG support

I would have to guess very few. If memory serves, Yamaha's XG MIDI is basically an extension of the General MIDI standard (similar to Roland's "General Standard" or "GS"). Having suppprt for XG MIDI in the game's setup menu doesn't necessarily mean it supports the additional instruments of that …

Re: How to get a secondary monochrome monitor working in DOS and how to connect it to a modern display?

I think the easiest would be to install a dedicated monochrome display adapter with a separate monochrome monitor. Since MDA occupies a different memory address space than either CGA, EGA or VGA, they can co-exist quite happily together. Just make sure you don't "allocate " the MDA memory address …

Re: SB64AWE memory size in Dos games

I think your confused. All AWE32+AWE64 had the same ROM. the AWE64 Gold had 4mb RAM, not ROM! for games that uploaded samples, if they worked on the 512kb card, they will sound the same on the 4mb. I know of no games that downsampled to fit lower memory. What still confuses me is the cards with no …
