Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

So from what I understand this is how the drivers I found work: DOS needs a 16 bit sound card, it can't use a 32 bit sound card. So the drivers emulate a 16 bit card using the 32 bit sound card. However how it works depend on different parts of the card. It initializes the sound card on it's on IRQ, …

Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

You said that it has BLASTER=A220 I7 D1 H5 P330 T6 That means, as far as your games are concerned, the IRQ is 7. I'm confused why the games keep asking you for these settings rather than reading from the BLASTER variable. Could you try a different game? How about Wacky Wheels? I'll try Wacky Wheels …

Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

Ok so part of the confusion is there is an actual irq (9) and then there is another irq (7) used for Sound Blaster emulation. So the IRQ 7 is what you should tell the game.

Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

I'm happy you remember that I have a Dell V400. I use that for windows 98, but this is a different computer that is only dos. technically it's an HP Vextra XM2 but I've swapped many parts in and out of it. If it's still got a 486 installed I wouldn't even bother getting it to work in that machine …

Those should be what you pick. ok the config utility gives me: PCI Hardware: Port=FCE0 IRQ=9 SB16 Emulation: Port=220 IRQ=7 DMA=1, 5 MPU-401 (midi) emulation: …

Re: Soundblaster on DOS to run DOOM

If you're still using the Dell Dimension V400 then the onboard YMF724 will be a much better option for DOS gaming. For the Live! you will need two IRQs, one PCI IRQ and one for Sound Blaster emulation. Reserve the IRQ for the emulation in the BIOS so no other device steals it. I'm happy you …
