Read through the thread and couldn't find an answer. What is the reason why everyone uses SETUPDS version 3.16 and not the later version 3.17.

Hi ! It seems i don't have it.
Do you have or can make a direct link to download this version please, so i can give a try ?

Best regards

There were some unofficial patches for 3.16 or 3.14, to make it running on more chipsets..There was link to download page, where it was described somewhere in Vogons..
Hmm. links from 1# post are mostly dead, so try to use internet Wayback machine with them 2,3 years ago time period.

Im old goal oriented goatman, i care about facts and freedom, not about egos+prejudices. Hoarding=sickness. If you want respect, gain it by your behavior. I hate stupid SW limits, SW=virtual world, everything should be possible if you have enough raw HW.

Ver 3.17 did fix a problem I have with IRQ being set to 127.

This was the update log on what was new/fixed in setupds.

Version 3.17 (11/15/99)
- Fixed the problem that INTA# IRQ was sometime set to 127 when INTA# was shared
with other devices.
Version 3.16 (11/1/99)
- Warm reset will be issued when the AC97 devices go into the power down mode. (For
YMF744, 754 only.)
- Fixed the problems that happened with specific systems using PIIX4 chipset.

I will attach it to this post. Can't remember exactly what website I got version 3.17 from now, it was some website with a Drapeau du Pays de Galles on it I downloaded in 2001. I'm trying to find in on archive.org because i'm certain there was also a version 3.18 released in January 2000. I will have a look on my old dos hard drive if I can find it. Can't seem to find any existence of it on the internet now.

(only attaching setupds.exe , all other files the same as 3.16)

Crackling may be caused by too high maximum volume. Sometimes it's because driver allows to set the volume too high, when it was taken from another card. With VxD drivers you may fix it in registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\YAMAHA\Driver\YMF724\VolumeMax, or by YMF7x4Utilities.

Sorry, but I fail to do further steps. What do I need to change in the registry to have a lower max sound or what should I press in this Japanese program? Thanks.

Hi, i've got a laptop with 754. In Audio Mixer i've got a 3D Wide regulator. What is it and why it is turned off by default?

It's some king of DSP effect that should try to enhance stereo effect but I would call it rather sound crippling so it's better to have it disabled, at least for listnening music.

What laptop is it and what driver are you using?

Working on getting a working VXD driver for Sony laptops with the 754 and anything helps.

It’s all here: Toshiba 2805-s402 Ultimate retro gaming laptop

Didn’t it help?

Ah, ok. I still haven't had a chance to try the Toshiba driver.
