Hi, is there any known compatibility issues with any DOS game?
I have not found any so far but it is unavoidable that some game(s) will need some workaround or they will only work with specific WSS or SB settings ... It's the nature of all compatible chips that some quirks will exist.
Here are a couple of games which gave me trouble on my integrated CMI8330. Now, I can't be certain if that was due to the sound card itself or because of the PC Chips motherboard that it was on. But it might be worth investigating how these work on the MK8330:
- Stonekeep (retail CD version patched to 1.2)
- Mortal Kombat 1 (floppy version with FM synth music)
- Jagged Alliance 1
- Chaos Engine (reported by Gerwin)
Maybe someone who has the MK8330 can run a few of these and see if the aforementioned issues manifest on the standalone card.
I also noticed that the CMI8330 card's WSS mode didn't work correctly in certain games like Space Quest V and Red Alert when WSS DMA was set to 0. Both games worked fine with WSS DMA set to 1. Again, this could be due to the PC Chips motherboard, rather than the card itself.
