I'm new to these forums, but I figured it would be a good place to start.
I have a couple 486 era systems with genuine Sound Blaster 16 cards (CT2910 and CT2230).
For some reason, Jazz Jackrabbit and Epic Pinball refuse to play at full quality on either card. It sounds like the sample rate is around 22Khz, despite the settings being on Ultra quality and SB16 in the setup. The problem persists with the setting on SB Pro too.
If I install a different card (such as a Yamaha YMF718-S) and use the settings for SB Pro and Ultra quality, both games sound great. Is this just a software bug in these particular games?
When these games were fairly new, I had always played them on my 386 with clone cards, such as Reveal SC400 and Yamaha. It was pretty disappointing to hear the real SB16 sound like crap when I finally got one all these years later.
