CMI8738 and Duke Nukem 3D

Postby Christiano » 2019-5-11 @ 04:01

Hello there!

I have a big problem when running the game Duke Nukem 3D.
I own a classic CMI 8738 with DOS drivers installed ver 2.1 . Install folder is C:\PCIAUD

When I setup the sound I will get the same error: invalid or conflicting DMA channel.
I mention that only with the sound fx i have this problem. The music works, configured as ADLIB.

Has anyone managed to set the sound right ?

P.S. i attached a printscreen with my NSSI readings related to the sound card. Thanks,

In autoexec.bat it gets loaded with SET BLASTER command, 1 for DMA low, 5 for DMA high.

Other games are working for me also, but with Duke Nukem I have this problem.
