I have a problem with inertia player I don't remember experimenting before. When I use a GUS Classic on 240,7,7,7,7 intertia player play alright one song but I cannot change screen (F2,F3,F5 key screen mode). As soon as I do, it stall the display and keyboard but the music continue to play (although it wont loop or play next file), I have to reset the computer. What's working is play with options (F9-F12 and volue -+ ), F1 help, F8 shell and F4 for more samples. If I start with the 3 problematic mode, it stall quickly. Since this card also have a AWE32 on 220, irq5 dma 1/5 I tested it and it work alright, of course on sb16 software mixing. The video card is a CL-5446 if that matter. I also reserved soundcard resources on pnp/isa bios as legacy devices. The computer is a 430TX with a p1-120mmx (downclocked). I tested on another TX motherboard from another manufacturer, same problem.
Of course the visuals from inertia player, while being awesome and having a great retro value to me, are secondary to that soundcard setup since I find them ideal and easy to remember. But is this the sign of underlying configuration error ? Maybe someone is aware of that problem and know how to fix it, could be a simple bios setting to change.
