Yeah, thank You. I have that Version allready and my S2P works fine. Problem is the /MT32 option as it works ONLY with s2p. So I asked if that switch could be implemented into the other /OUTPUT options so i can switch my standard S2 on the soundcard's MPU interface to MT32 emulation.

Still some flaws with the pitchbends in some games but work continues.

While this may free the memory used by the TSR, it won't return the RTC, PIC and GDT to their original state and will probably result in a crash later on.

I reboot the system later on as a precautionary measure.

Hey guys.
Any news on the pitchbend issues in combinations with Dreamblaster S2?

First post in here (hello everyone!)

I just tried SoftMPU with my Sound Blaster + MT-32 rev0 and it worked fine. I did not see my specific card in the compatibility list, so here are the details:

Sound card: Creative Sound Blaster CT1750 SB16-MCD ISA
CPU: Intel 486DX2-66Mhz
Memory: 64MB DIMM 80ns

I started softmpu from my autoexec.bat with /SB:220 /IRQ:5 /MPU:330 /DELAYSYSEX

So far I have only tested with Space Quest 3, but it is working fine.

Welcome. Glad it worked for you. Which DSP version is your CT1750 and are there any hanging note bugs?

Regarding my Creative Sound Blaster CT1750, DSP is 4.11 . No hanging notes so far.

Is it the CT1747 or YMF-262M? The CT1747 has only the level 2 bug, which is rare, and level 1 is the only one that has hanging notes galore.

Yes. I haven't forgotten robertmo :) I might have time over Xmas to try Corporation and Mechwarrior! I actually only have my 486 laptop with SB16 left now but that should be good enough.
