Related to; I've got some problems with DOS games
I apparently need a soundcard to get Carmageddon to play the cutscenes.
I have 4 soundcards to choose from;
1) ESS AudioDrive ES1868F ISA
I've been messing about with this one, but don't seem to have DOS drivers, only Win9x. Nothing seems to get added to the autoexec.bat or config.sys (don't know if that's neccessary for DOS?). I'd like to use this card because it's the only ISA card I have, which means I don't need to sacrifice a PCI slot (I'll need the space for my videocards). So if anyone has any idea on how to get this thing working in DOS, please tell.
2) ESS Solo-1 ES1938S PCI
Haven't tested it, nor do I know anything about it.
3) Creative Labs Sound Blaster PCI128 CT4700 (Chip marking; 5507)
4) Creative Labs 4740 PCI (Chip marking; ES1373)
Soundblasters I know by reputation, but I don't know which one is more suitable for DOS gaming or how they compare to the ESS cards.
So, can anyone tell me which card is the easiest to use in DOS?
