Re: Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

If you choose soundblaster it will address the FM chip through the soundblaster base address and then it ends up on your AWE64 using it’s CQM implementation of FM music. Wouldn't that mean in games where you can only choose one sound card for both music and sound FX this kind of setup would not …

Re: Diamond Speedstar24 Bios versions

Card with Bios 4.23 looks different than cards with 5.01 and 6.01 bios. Components are in different locations and multimedia connector is missing so I am not sure I should try 6.01 bios with that. The cards with 5.01 and 6.01 bios look alike other than the bios chips.

Re: Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

In setupds there should be a "Legacy Audio Enable" option in one of the menus. Pretty sure if you turn that off, it will just disable the digital audio and leave the FM enabled but not 100% sure as I haven't messed with it in a while. I managed to make it work. I found setupds.exe version that …

Re: Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

It would be nice to be able to just disable the SB side of things with the yamaha card and just keep it as adlib, but I can't figure out how In setupds there should be a "Legacy Audio Enable" option in one of the menus. Pretty sure if you turn that off, it will just disable the digital audio and …

Re: Diamond Speedstar24 Bios versions

you will need a programmer to do a proper dump, something like the TL-866 that is affordable and super-useful in general if you mess with old hardware Are the Chinese ones from ebay like this one ok or should I order one from somewhere else? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Programmer-TL866II-PLUS-for-ICSP …

Re: Diamond Speedstar24 Bios versions

newer vga bios usually means more modes or even vesa support you can certainly use the 6x chips on the older cards if you have some means to dump those chips please post them here as well, thanks! I would like to be able to do dump like that for myself as well. What I would need to be able to do …

Re: Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

I have now win98se installed. I have ctcm, diagnose /s and mixerset /p /q in autoexec.bat. No aweutil. All sound and music in dos games is coming from the awe64 card. What do I need to do exactly to get music out of the pci card with yamaha chip instead? https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?p= …

Diamond Speedstar24 Bios versions

I have couple Diamond Speedstar24 cards that have older bios like "Speedstar VGA DBIOS 5.01" or "Speedstar VGAS DBIOS 4.23" writen on the socketed bios chips. I also have a similar speedstar24 card that does not work that has "Speedstar VGA Dbios 6.01". Does anyone know if I can move the newer bios …

Re: Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

I just thought about a second option I have. I could use 2 isa cards as well. I could use awe64 for 16bit digital sound and then put older CT1600 for OPL. First I will probably just try to disable the fm emulation in awe64 and then I can try both of the options and see if there is any difference in …

Re: Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

Almost any PCI card will do better digital sound than an awe64. Usually you would be doing it the other way round - PCI card for FX and ISA card for OPL. Why? Wouldn't the SB16 support of the AWE64 in DOS be better than almost any PCI sound card, not to mention games that directly support the AWE32 …

Awe64 + PCI card with Yamaha chip

If I would put Awe64 and PCI card with Yamaha chip in a same system would I be able to get opl3 music in dos from the yamaha card in games that only support older sound blasters while getting sound effects from awe64? If it would work somehow, what the compatibility with games be like? I was also …
