Re: Retro OSes for retro computers

...NewDeal Office 3.2a... How did you set up the networking on your setup? As pertains to those particular screen grabs, dial-up PPP, using an actual modem. Here's another NewDeal Office 3.2a setup though, running on a 286/10MHz system equipped with just 1MB of RAM and standard VGA, but with …

Re: SB 16 & SB AWE64 in same system as means to get around hanging note bug? (i.e. AWE64 as dedicated external MIDI card

[EDIT] Spoke too soon! The carnival area plays fine, but sitting through the intro leaves a hanging note that never goes away, whether set to 16KB or 32KB. So, my apologies, but where the buffer suggestion is applicable to Day of the Tentacle, the same command-line options with Sam & Max are …

Re: SB 16 & SB AWE64 in same system as means to get around hanging note bug? (i.e. AWE64 as dedicated external MIDI card

This dual card scenario is a workaround, it does not make Creative Labs' implementation bug-free . Not bug-free, "bug-free." :) Of course it's a workaround. That's the entire premise of this thread - whether a dual-card scenario involving two SB16 architectures can mitigate the issues with the …

Re: SB 16 & SB AWE64 in same system as means to get around hanging note bug? (i.e. AWE64 as dedicated external MIDI card

Re: using PCM from AWE32, would you then suggest using the AWE64 as the "main sound card" (i.e. IRQ 5, I/O 220, DMA 1/5, MPU disabled) and the AWE32 as the "dedicated MIDI port" (i.e. MPU 330, IRQ 2)? Sure. The AWE64 will additionally allow you to configure its FM at an alternate address, in case …

Re: SB 16 & SB AWE64 in same system as means to get around hanging note bug? (i.e. AWE64 as dedicated external MIDI card

Every known MIDI-related issue with the SB16's shared-MCU architecture is a consequence of concurrent, interrupt-driven digital audio playback. Move that function to another card, and you'll have problem-free MIDI playback, regardless of the card involved. Where the AWE64 resolves the additional …

Re: MT-32, CM-32L, LAPC-I reversed stereo

So this was a convention from other JMSC and MMA members? Was Roland pretty much the only manufacturer who did their panning this way or were there others in the pre-GM era? I'm not sure about other manufacturers, but I believe the MT-32 was Roland's first product to leverage CC#10 for panpot. I …

Re: MT-32, CM-32L, LAPC-I reversed stereo

The original MIDI specification didn't explicitly define use-cases for any of the continous controllers, leaving it up to individual manufacturers, who largely managed to standardize amongst themselves anyhow. The MMA did later adopt the recommendation of using specific controllers for specific …

Re: Retro OSes for retro computers

GeoWorks has already been mentioned in this thread, but for all of you XT-class 286 system owners with EMS, I'm finding the combination of DR DOS 6.0 and NewDeal Office 3.2a to be exceptionally usable, quirks aside. https://www.symphoniae.com/misc/vogons/DUMP02.PNG https://www.symphoniae.com/misc/ …
