Re: ESS Solo 1 different versions

Installed the card on a nForce2 board and get the "Cannot find the AudioDrive." message. Can't say I am to excited about the card. Needed to hex edit ESSOLO.INI to enable the joystick port and Wolfenstein 3D doesn't recognize a SB card. So can only select PC speaker. Also can't change TDMA to DDMA …

Re: ESS Solo 1 different versions

Will install the card later today and let you know. What should running ESSVOL.EXE tell us? It seems to indicate whether your revision of the Solo-1 chip supports AudioDrive emulation. It will either say "Cannot find the AudioDrive." or it will let you read/set the mixer volume levels. I am …

Re: ESS Solo 1 different versions

Bought this one but didn't test it yet. Don't see a model name on it as described earlier. Saw in another forum topic it could be a Creative Labs card (MPB-000092)? But that was for version 1.10. This is a 1.1 card. So not really sure. Sound cards with part numbers starting MPB- look like they are …

Re: DR-DOS 3.41 and CD-ROM drives

Tried it in VirtualBox and got the same problem with DR-DOS 3.41. Also used OAKCDROM.SYS but used MSCDEX.EXE version 2.25. Don't know what the problem is but my guess is with the unsupported MSCDEX (or alternatives) calls. Needed to set the /L:D parameter for example. If not it would try to use A: …

Re: The quest for the missing LPT port

in Milliways
If you still want a thin client look for a HP ThinClient T5710 or something like that. It has a parallel port. Got mine pretty cheap a couple of weeks ago so it may be even cheaper then buying a parallel port card.

I fully agree tapatalk is awful. The vogons mobile site loads and renders perfectly on my Google pixel 3a and our tablet. I don't see what's wrong with their mobile site. Yep. Looks and works fine to me on an iPhone and iPad, also. Really depends if you need bigger fonts or not. Default looks good …

Re: Missing SMD resistor on a Voodoo 2 card

A 'C' on the solder mask indicates this is a capacitor, not a resistor. Checking for C68 on the Creative card with similar (identical?) layout in https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?t=73378 it appears to be a 100nF 25V X7R ceramic in 0603 package size. Edited to refer to the right card layout. …

Missing SMD resistor on a Voodoo 2 card

Had problems with a Voodoo 2 card and found out that a SMD resistor capacitor is missing (hope that is the only problem :(). It's labeled as C68 on the board and is located on the back of the card (see picture). Anyone knows which value this resistor capacitor should have? Used the image uploaded by …
