Tried Wizardry 7 (mt-32+pc speaker) with your dosbox build - every sound effect is now so earpiercing :dead:

Add this line to dosbox autoexec.bat section:
Code: Select all
mixer spkr 25

The PC-Speaker is really high in comparison to PCM audio, so that fixes it.

A bit late, but "Descent 2" has a problem with this patch when the PC speaker is disabled in the config. It won't start the intro sequence, even if the game isn't putting out sound over the speaker but over SB.

The game doesn't even use the speaker, it's just not starting when I disable the speaker in the conf-file, even if it puts the sound out over Soundblaster. It works with vanilla DOSBox, with the same conf, so it has to be a problem with this patch.
