@kompas-rus I tried to order from the forum 2 months ago or so. However nothing ever came of it... I wasn't billed anything. Is there any special trick? Is there an english help forum? Because everything was in Russian, autotranslated... 😀

I reported earlier that at first production in China was closed, now the customs border in Russia has been closed, I do not know when it will be restored. I saw all the orders, I will let you know when these boards will be in my possession, as I said before, there are more than 30 orders. The cost in USD will not change, the cost will be increased in RUB, as the pair USD-RUB is increased by 30%. You can always write to me on my site’s store page at the bottom right, I will answer.

Sorry I haven't been around much lately, work is brutal right now. Not that I do anything to contribute to this project other than cheer it on.

Shock, for whatever its worth, thanks for all of your time, sweat, blood and probably sleepless nights you've poured into this project. I hope life gets smoother for you, life usually does. This is a hobby, and should bring anyone interested in it an uplift of spirit and a reprieve of daily life, not being a path that requires trudging through it.

I hope everyone stays safe during this time. Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and running water, use hand sanitizer if you can't, and don't touch your face. My lab is busy switching over to making, of all things, hand sanitizer since you can't find it very well on store shelves.

Guess who's behind shedule again? 😀
I'll go grab shipping labels tomorrow, so if you haven't please send me your current shipping adress asap so I can send out the prototypes (so far I've recieved 2 adresses from 12 testers [-2 since there will be some combined shipping]).

Sorry for going slightly off-topic, but can someone with a GUS test something for me?
- Run warcraft2's setup.exe (under dos)
- Select music setup
- Highlight Gravis Ultrasound in the list and press ok
- The next screen should say "Setup is about to initialize your sound card...", click ok and immediately wiggle the mouse around

Does it crash, freeze, or proceed to the "Device detected" dialog?

I can test that later but in the meantime which mouse driver are you using?

Done. Sorry, the site did not send me a notification about new replies.
You should have my address in my old messages I sent 2 years ago also.

I tested this with my PnP, and got no crashes or freezes. Keep in mind that there's indeed a slight pause, since samples are loaded into the GUS RAM. That's not a freeze, it's perfectly normal behaviour. Wiggling the mouse did not crash or freeze for me it simply might slow down the machine. Specially a driver with such CPU overhead as that MS 8.20 driver.

If you continue to have issues maybe you can create a proper thread about this.

Sorry for the off topic.

9 Release Candidates have been shipped as of today and matze's Prototype from run #2 has been repaired.
If the cards haven't arrived within the next 14 days let me know so I can forward you the tracking numbers.

whiskey and d0pefish - I still need you adresses.
I'll PM you shortly.

shock__ - any plans to maybe offer a plain PCB run plus non-soldered Interwave? At least I wouldn't mind doing all that myself and if it allowed for some return on your work, I would be happy about that also.

That's the current plan ... I might have underestimated the effort of soldering ~200 InterWaves for the final run, which is prolly why I've been quite lethargic the closer the project got to being finalized.
I've recently announced that change of plans on here.

Just got your PM and have replied, Vogons just straight up decided I didn't need notifications from this thread any more ¬_¬

Cheers Shock_!

I've recently done some QFP soldering on an AWE 64 (CT3670) card and some other similar cards with about the same pin pitch so I completely understand your pain on that one, I did not enjoy that and after I dropped the QFP chip, it did not turn out well.

If you decide to open it up though, I'm keen to pitch in.
Is there any option to get the PCB + the QFP chip without soldering?
Althoough there's been a lot of delays on this project, It's still moving along well 😀
