I've had no luck getting digital audio working through my AWE64 in System Shock 1. Midi works great via an external SC-55.
I've tried manually changing settings in the CYB.CFG file but still nothing.
The demo readme states:
1. Sound stuff: For space reasons, we have not included our install program which would automatically set your System Shock conf […]
1. Sound stuff: For space reasons, we have not included our install
program which would automatically set your System Shock configuration file
appropriately for your sound card. The demo comes default configured for
no sound or digital effects. If you want either sound or digital effects,
you will have to edit your cyb.cfg file yourself. In cyb.cfg, you will
find, among some other things, the following lines:
digi_card and midi_card are the big ones; they control what sound or
effect card the game thinks you have. You can set midi_card or digi_card
to the appropriate value from the table below:
SoundBlasterPro (old) 2
SoundBlasterPro (new) 3
General Midi 12
midi_irq and midi_io can be set to the appropriate value of your IRQ and
I/O base address, respectively. Similarly, digi_io, digi_dma, and
digi_irq can be set to your digital I/O address, DMA, and IRQ. These
values are in decimal, which may be a bit confusing when setting digi_io
and midi_io since those values are normally expressed in hex. Note that
if you leave these values as their original -1, System Shock will attempt
to use the defaults.
So, if you have a vanilla SB16 (card 3), with all default settings, the
sound part of your cyb.cfg would look like:
If you had an SB16 (card 3) on digital IRQ 7, and a Waveblaster
daughterboard for MIDI (card 12), the sound part of your cyb.cfg would
My AWE64 has all defaults - A220 I5 D1 H5 P300 E620 T6
I'm using these settings:
Again, just Midi is working.
Any ideas what I'm missing/ doing wrong?
Thanks for any help! I last played through the game back in 94, want to see if it's as good as I remember.
