Sorry, if this is stupid question, but I can't find exact answer anywhere.
I have ESS 1869F card with WT header. If I buy S2 board and connect it to my soundcard, what should I set in games' setup? In Doom, there is "Wavetable" option. In some games there is "General midi" option. In other games, there is nothing like that. What should I set in such games? Just SB Pro? Will it identify S2 and use it?

Only games with wavetable / general midi support can make use of the S2 otherwise you are limited to regular Adlib/Sound Blaster music.

Thanks! General MIDI can play only through gameport or also through WT interface?

Both. With S2, you can connect to card directly via wavetable connector, for connection via gameport you need also this: https://www.serdashop.com/CHiLLandPhilAdapter

But really, if you have available wavetable connector on your card, just use that.
