I'm trying to get my Audigy 2ZS to be detected as a soundcard within DOS games running within Windows 98 (i.e. without having to restart in MS-DOS mode)
My system is an ASUS TUSL2-C (BIOS ver. 1012). I have disabled as much onboard devices as I could (Serial & Parallel ports & USB) to free up IRQs etc.
My Audigy 2ZS is installed in PCI Slot 3 (with the VxD Windows drivers installed off of the Audigy2ZS Install CD. No other PCI cards are installed. The PCI card gets assigned to IRQ3
I've installed the Audigy 1 DOS drivers from this thread: audigy dos drivers, as well as run the AUDIGY12.EXE patch.
The DOS drivers installer did not create a CTSYN.INI, so I created one myself from here http://wysiwyg.bg/music_software/drivers/soun … /sblive/DOSDRV/ (I've updated the PQIIRQ to match mine which is 3):
Nothing else on the system (according to Windows) is using IRQs 3 and 5.
My Autoexec is set to the following:
mode con codepage prepare=((850) C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)
mode con codepage select=850
SET BLASTER=A220 I5 D1 H5 P330
and this is my config.sys:
Now when the system boots, SBEINIT.com says its been loaded successfully on port 'b800' with IRQ 3, this is then confirmed by the audigy12.exe patch
However when I view device manager in window, the newly detected SB16 emulation driver displays this: http://i.imgur.com/oRtLJC1.jpg
If I go into the resources tab, and manually assign the ports, DMA & IRQs to match that in my ctsyn.ini file, I get a fatal exception BSOD (Although the device has now started). Occasionally if I *then* run a DOS game from windows, it detects the card, but when I attempt to test the sound, the applications throw an illegal operation & quit.
